The world's finest bourbon and a Rockefeller estate: welcome to your Memorial Day weekend at The Point.
Toast to The Point’s myriad amenities, such as stunning vistas with classic New England seating.
Swing a croquet bat. Slumber on a hammock. Cook with a five-star chef. The options are endless at The Point, a luxury “camping” resort—if you can call it that—nestled in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. The 75-acre estate, built on the shores of a gleaming lake by William Avery Rockefeller more than a century ago, focuses on providing top-tier leisure time, from private fishing trips to naps on lush cashmere blankets.
Over Memorial Day Weekend (May 27–30), its indulgences turn toward libations, when The Point features a multi-course tasting menu paired with much-coveted and ultra-rare Pappy Van Winkle bourbons from the venerable Old Rip Van Winkle distillery in Kentucky. “Pappy Van Winkle is something you simply can’t get,” says general manager Cameron Karger, adding that guests over Memorial Day Weekend will be able to taste the entire Pappy Van Winkle line—and in the most leisurely of settings. “It’s not a stuffy [event] where you just sip every bourbon. We want everyone to enjoy it in a very relaxed environment.” Three days of relaxed environment, in fact, during which Preston Van Winkle, the great-grandson of the distillery’s founder, will host a formal dinner and deliver a historical talk.
