The Point, Saranac Lake, New York, USA

The Boathouse

Like something out of a fairy tale, The Boathouse is set right above The Point’s docked boats, and pine trees encircle the wooden cabin. Unique, Nutcracker-esque furnishings are spread throughout the open-plan space, with a canopied bed occupying the center. Views of the Upper Saranac Lake and the mountains beyond can be seen throughout, but make the most of them by heading outside to the wraparound deck. There are two twin beds suspended from the ceiling that, when gently swaying in the breeze, mimic the bobbing boats below. If you visit during winter, the gigantic native stone fireplace will keep you warm, or, failing that, a whisky from the fully stocked bar will do the trick.
