Continuing our tour of Great Camp Santanoni in Newcomb, NY in the Adirondacks, we see the expansive Boat House. The outside of the building is very low and almost looks sunken in to the hillside and mostly all you see is the huge roof. Inside you quickly see how unexpectedly big it is. Like all buildings at the Santanoni Preserve, the walls are notched logs stacked and the roof beams are very long timbers. Some of the cross timbers are over 50 feet. This was one of the only buildings to collapse and was restored to original condition. A large door system opens to go down a ramp into the water of Lake Newcomb.
The many boats inside now are aluminum canoes and rowboats provided free to use by NY State for the public to use on the water.
Walking out onto the boat ramp you can see the small cove that leads up to the lake:
