NORTHPOINT CAMP GROUPS have comfort & space for individual privacy. FAMILIES find an outdoor playground together. COUPLES love the romantic solitude. PETS are welcome. You, your gear, & your food come to camp by motorboat; we provide canoes for your use while here. !!NEW in 2016!! - a small motorboat for guest use after orientation/safety instruction. 4 persons incl. driver.

Northpoint is not generally handicap accessible, and it is good to be comfortable on and around the water and able to navigate established forest paths! However, arrangements can be made for those of limited mobility - contact us! The main house offers panoramic views with floor-to-ceiling picture windows and outside deck w/ gas grill for sunset suppers. There's a modernized galley kitchen with dishwasher, new 4-burner electric stove/oven and full-size refrigerator/freezer plus toaster, crock-pot, glassware, cutlery & dinnerware. Dine with nicely appointed accessories in view of the fireplace. The rustic wood floors have Nepalese rugs; the ceilings are high making for a cozy loft w/ extraordinary panoramic view. Electric heat, fireplace and on-demand gas hot water. 4G Verizon phone reception, WiFi nearby. The Family Suite has an outside entrance with a king bed and a queen pull-out couch. Theirs is a Jack & Jill bathroom with shower & washer/dryer which opens through to the Twin room accessed off the main Living/Dining area. The primary bath opens from the LR & has an antique claw-foot soaking tub with the luxury of on-demand hot water that is as clean & pure as it is rare and totally delicious. This is the primary facility for the loft bedroom above and a close bath for the Twin room if needed. Lakeside just down the path from the Main House there is an original 1903 lakeside stone building w/balcony overlooking the lake - one of just 3 left from a devastating fire in 1941. It serves now as a prime Master Cabin and is available for an additional charge to guests already booked into the Main house. There you find a gas fireplace, toilet & sink and small refrigerator & coffee maker. It has original glass windows, a surrounding deck and authentic Mission-style furniture and lighting. Water laps just out the many windows; the moon reflects magically on the ceiling as you're lulled to sleep. All linens & towels are provided. Free car parking is offered at our private boat landing. Your group will be transported by motorboat to Lean-to Island dock where you will find canoes/ paddles & life jackets. NYS law mandates use of PFDs. Launch your own motorboat for a small fee; no marina facilities so bring extra fuel. No covered mooring at the small floating dock with great afternoon sun and is deep enough for diving. Book a back-to-Nature adventure this season on Upper St. Regis Lake; we have something special for everyone. You will not be tempted to exceed your budget here with shopping, eating and other vacation indulgences because you will be perched high above the water and exploring your private island playground below with its rare open campfire and original Adirondack Lean-to. Your hosts transport your group to the island for the marked trail through the woods up to the Main house perched on Northpoint; your food/gear is delivered to your door by another route. Guests are provided a comprehensive book of suggested, mapped adventures to begin this memorable family vacation at the edge of 6 million acres of Adirondack State Park. Bring your groceries for the week; we will transport them for you at time of arrival.

Since 2016 - fully made up queen bed w/mosquito netting at Lean-to Island for outdoor camping sleepovers just down the hill and across the lighted footbridge.
