The primary bath opens from the LR & has an antique claw-foot soaking tub with the luxury of unlimited 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 toilet for everyone. Lakeside just down the path from the Main House there is an original 1903 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 exclusively to guests booked into the Main house. There you find a gas fireplace, toilet & sink, small refrigerator & electric kettle. It has original glass windows, a surrounding deck and authentic Mission-style furniture and lighting.

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.

Book a back-to-Nature adventure on Upper St. Regis Lake; we're a 3-season opportunity that has something special for each guest. You will not be tempted to exceed your budget here with shopping, dining out and other travel 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 Lean-to Island for the marked trail through the woods up to the Main house perched on Northpoint; food/gear delivered to your door by ATV.
