Mr. C.H. Voorhees of Hartford, CT, in 1928 took up the last two lots in the Association on the north shore, just at the edge of "Buckwheat" or "Whiskey" Bay, which is the Town's access for ice fishermen. The cottage was transferred in 1946 to the musical and motor boating William D. Hammond, a famous flautist once with Kate Smith's band, but since turned independent. He was then of Ridgewood, NJ, but more recently of Closter, NJ. His wife for years could be seen hiking vigorously (not "jogging") along the road with a wave and a smile for Pointers motoring by.

In 1991 the camp was bought by Dick Tonino and his wife Ellen Postlewaite. Already a year-round Charlotte resident, Dick work as a geriatric physician in Burlington, and Ellen is a social worker. They move to the camp with their two children, Molly and Leath, as soon as school lets out in June and spend the entire summer at the Point.
