Outdoors, there is a wildly popular fire pit, amply stocked with logs, where guests gather nightly to enjoy one another’s after dinner company, weather permitting. Even shy and introverted guests, after an hour around the campfire roasting marshmallows, become good friends with erstwhile strangers. Launch one of the Inn’s kayaks or canoes for a paddle about the lake to work off that ample breakfast. Afternoons find guests all around the inn’s grounds lounging, swimming at the dock, or just taking in the views from patio perches. Explore the neighborhood on provided bicycles or hike the mountain trails and relax in the lakeside hammock to rest those weary legs. 6 PM brings the ever popular hour long cruise down the lake aboard the good ship “Tight Squeeze”, the inn’s pontoon boat. In the snowy winter, the inn offers a convenient location across the road from Wisp’s entrance and staff can make reservations for tubing and other venues at the Wisp Ski resort. Energetic guests can venture out on the inn’s snow shoes. We get well above 100 inches of snow each winter – more than Buffalo, New York.
“This is our fifth visit in six years and we seem to enjoy ourselves more each time.
Lake Pointe Inn is a source of relaxation and escape for us…”
