  • Santanoni is a great camp that was rescued from neglect and near collapse. It has a very unique architectural style. You can hike, bike, ski or snowshoe back to the main house, or it is really fun.....  more »
  • Absolutely stunning place with a ton of history. 10 mile round trip hike on the old camp road. We started a bit late but still made it out there and back by 5pm.
  • This has been a very long time favorite of my wife's family growing up. Now, my wife and I are continuing the tradition with our family and friends. We enjoyed a nice hike back the farm on a good summer day.
