It’s no news that rich parents often send their offspring to tony summer camps the minute school lets out. But it seems some adults want in on high-end summer fun as well.
The New York Post goes behind the scenes and dishes on Adirondacks getaway, The Point. The property does everything it can to pamper campers so much they won’t ever want to leave. There are activities galore, waiters to cater to your every whim and access to a private island where you can sail on a Hacker-Craft. If that’s not enough to grab you, how about the opportunity to hobnob and dine communally with other super rich folks?
“One weekend last fall, they included a group of friends from Rochester who arrived via private plane, a Brooklyn laundry king and his diamond-dripping wife, and a Trump-loving, gold-hoarding FreshDirect executive.”
If that doesn’t sound like your idea of fun, we are sure access to the property’s well-curated wine cellar will help you muddle through it.
Of course, basking in such rustic charm does not come cheap; the century-old, 11-log-cabin compound originally built by William Avery Rockefeller, Jr. is one of the most expensive hotels in the U.S, with a $1,600-a-night price tag. After a million dollar renovation, the hotel reopened on June 1st to much fanfare.
And for those who don’t get along with others, there’s also the option to rent the entire place out, for a mere $25,650 per night. [NYP]
