It’s the best of Town and Country. Your New York excursion includes both the bucolic upstate setting of The Point on Saranac Lake and the bright lights of Broadway at the 2019 Tony Awards®! You’ll be in the audience at Radio City Music Hall as the guest of Sandi Moran, Tony Award®-winning Broadway producer, on Sunday, June 9 when the winners are announced, surrounded by the creative community who bring the magic to the stage. Will you see Meryl Streep? Nathan Lane? Patti LuPone? You never know who’ll be there to give out or accept the awards. It’s the ultimate insider’s night of nights for a true Broadway fan.

While in the city, you’ll spend time beneath the lights of Broadway, enjoying the captivating, exhilarating story of “Anastasia” and a behind-the-scenes tour of the historic Broadhurst Theatre. You’ll also enjoy the paradigm-shifting musical “Hamilton,” winner of a record-setting 16 Tony Awards®.  This theatrical tour-de-force has ignited a new era in musical theater, where America shines in brand new ways. And speaking of shining, all three occasions invite you to dress up and wear something extra special. Perhaps a new piece of jewelry?

In that case, Marissa Collections and Bayco Fine Jewelry has just the ticket, so to speak. They’re adding a $25,000.00 retail credit to this lot, to be applied towards a one-of-a-kind Bayco jewel or custom-designed piece from Bayco Fine Jewelry. Such a creation definitely deserves more than one Big Apple outing, however, so maybe you’ll show it off again when you join the Hadjibay Family of Bayco Fine Jewelry for a delicious dinner at Michael White’s Two-starred Michelin restaurant, Marea.

When you grow weary of these big city delights, The Point Resort on Saranac Lake awaits you. For four nights, luxuriate in the relaxed elegance of this distinctive hideaway that’s also the only five-star resort in Upstate New York. Built by William Avery Rockefeller a century ago, The Point welcomes visitors with fanciful log mansions crafted of native timber and stone. Once, it personified the 19th-century romantic vision of “roughing it” in comfort, luxury and style; always, it continues a long tradition of honoring guests with warm hospitality and privacy. Featuring only 11 distinctive guestrooms, you will have your choice between six (Trappers, Lookout, Evensong, Mohawk, Morningside or Saranac), which are spread among the four original log buildings. Each guestroom has a broad lake view, a huge, hand-built bed and a sumptuous private bath, often with the camp’s original brass or chrome fixtures.

As a guest of The Point, its 75-acre property is utterly yours, with the days unfolding at your leisure. The staff anticipates your every need. Each meal is an event, each day an adventure and each night a celebration. Simple, splendid and authentic, The Point is a perfect place to escape the everyday and recharge.

From city to country, from bling to backpacks … and one bid does it all!
