Two visits to Santononi
Newcomb, N.Y., just off route 28N
About two hours from my house.
First, 2015, by bicycle; Second trip, 2017, horse & wagon.
You can walk in, ride your bike in, or take the wagon. It’s about five miles, mostly uphill on the way in. You can ski or snoeshoe in during the winter months. There are special events and weekends. You can camp there. The wagon (summer only) costs you $25. Very pretty place; call ahead to reserve your space on the wagon. Bring your kayak. There are some kayaks and canoes available in the boathouse, but bring your own if you have one.
A very interesting trip. A very pretty lake.
The gate house
A nice ride in, two HP is sufficient.
The lodge, as seen from the lake shore
The porches overlook Newcomb Lake. Can you imagine these porches with lots of furniture, great place to sit and watch a rainy day go by.

Getting ready for the ride back. The trailer carried my canoe and feed for the horses.
The road. It’s about five miles in, uphill for most of the way. It was a hard bike ride for me. A very pretty road through the woods in that wagon.
A couple of loons surfaced not far from my canoe on Newcomb Lake.
People go there by foot, by snowshoes, by skies, by bicycles, and by the horse-drawn wagon. What a pleasant way to spend a day!
