AARCH is partnering with SUNY-ESF to offer overnight accommodations in the historic Masten House, adjacent to the Upper Works near the former village of Adirondac. This overnight option falls between three Newcomb-based tours – Tahawus, Huntington Forest, and Santanoni – providing participants with a convenient option for prolonging their stay in the “Heart of the Adirondacks,” or simply indulging in a peaceful retreat.
Our overnight will begin with settling in, a casual dinner, and conversation about the history of the house and site. Post-dinner activities will include venturing to nearby Henderson Lake or relaxing in one of the large common rooms at the house.
Breakfast will be provided the following morning, as will ingredients for making boxed lunches for the day.
Arrival at the Masten House begins at 5 p.m., with departure the following morning by 9 a.m.
FEE: $160 for AARCH members and $170 for non-members. Includes dinner, breakfast, and boxed lunch.
Please note that the Masten House contains a variety of individual and shared room configurations, and we will do our best to accommodate specific requests.
This overnight stay is offered as part of the optional Newcomb Combo:
