At Prospect Point, there is no regimen
or set time; instead, an atmosphere of relaxation and warmth pervades.
When you're feeling adventurous, we'll supply you with a map of nearby
hiking trails, or point you to some of our favorite canoe haunts. We
have a fleet of canoes, rowboats and paddle boats guests are welcome
to use. Or you can rent a power boat from the livery or outfitters a
short walk up the road. Several lovely golf courses are 10 minutes from
your cabin. Tennis is right in town. The Adirondack Lakes Center for
the Arts, a regional treasure, hosts concerts, classes, plays and exhibits.
Not to be missed, the renowned Adirondack Museum - called "the
best of its kind in the world" by the NY Times - is just
across the lake.
You can take a tour of "Great Camp Sagamore", the incomparable
northwoods retreat of the Vanderbilts
(a National Historic Landmark, 14 miles away), or embark on a romantic sightseeing, buffet
or dinner cruise aboard the W W Durant on nearby Raquette Lake. Or step back in time and enjoy a guided historic cruise down our own chain of lakes in an antique powerboat - among the finest small tours in the mountains and departing several times daily from the Boat Livery right in town. For the really adventurous, we recommend seeing the Adirondacks by air; Helms Aero Service in nearby Long Lake takes you on a spectacular seaplane flight over our region, offering unrivaled photographic opportunities that simply can't be had any other way.
