The Point has announced the appointment of Kris White as General Manager. Mining nearly two decades of hospitality management experience as well as a lifelong love of the mountainous region surrounding the property, White oversees all operations at the waterfront resort in Saranac Lake, including marketing, food & beverage, rooms, and guest experiences, as well as developing and maintaining rewarding relationships with new and returning guests, many of whom have been vacationing at the property for years.

At The Point, White sees maintaining the level of service and experiential traditions for which the resort is renowned as central to his role. “The most important thing to me is continuing to celebrate The Point’s storied legacy. I look forward to advancing our culinary and wine program and continuing to delight guests with special experiences. The Point is an iconic and beloved property and as its steward, I look forward to ensuring that it continues to serve as a home away from home for our guests for many years to come.”

As the first Relais & Châteaux in North America, The Point occupies 75 acres on the site of the former Great Camp of William Avery Rockefeller II. Guests are welcomed to a fanciful log mansion with a romantic ambiance that gives the feeling of “roughing it.” Each of just 11 guest rooms is individually designed and arrayed with priceless artworks, fine antiques, rich fabrics, and rustic furnishings to exude comfort and invite relaxation.

White joined The Point from the Bohemian Club, a private members club based in San Francisco, CA. White started as a summer management intern and rose to the position of General Manager/Chief Operating Officer over his nine-and-a-half years with the club.

Now delighted to be surrounded by natural beauty at The Point, White spends his downtime enjoying the outdoors, from camping, to skiing, backpacking, and cycling. He is also a keen amateur landscape photographer and is passionate about cooking and wine.
