I have been fascinated with the evolution of the coywolf, or as some people refer to them -- as the Eastern Coyote. Within the last 100 years or so the western scrubby / tawny coyote has found it's way across the Mississippi into Canada. This migration corresponded to New York state's wolf population being, well, hunted [almost] out of extinction. This carnivorous void encouraged hybridization of the Grey Wolf and the western coyote. The coywolf is a wonderfully adapted animal. Scientific researchers from Albany and Massachusetts have used our area to study the eco-system that most suits this new hybrid. I have seen coywolves while hiking and heard their eerie howls while sitting on our dock at night. It is an awesome experience, in my opinion.
If you like birds, as I do, we have loons fishing in front of Viewette's dock in the early/late summer. You can hear their lonesome calls early in the morning and at twilight. The lake is also visited by kingfishers, osprey and bald eagles in search of their next meal! Great Blue Herons often fly overhead and can be seen spearing fish in the shallows.

Both my husband, Tom, and I are originally from Central NY, Rochester and Utica, respectively. We now live in a 1950's suburb of Philadelphia, PA. We look forward to the day of being full-time residents of Brantingham -- when Tom retires.
I used to summer at my mom and dad's camp on Cottage Road, Brantingham Lake since 1960. My husband, Tom, and I purchased the old Tyldesley's place on Long Point in 2003, renting out the main camp, Deja View, and the guest cottage, Viewette, starting in 2004. The main camp is no longer being rented, but our one bedroom guest cottage, Viewette, is still available.
In 2006 we purchased a very rustic, fixer-upper we named Bay View. After ripping out the linoleum, refinishing the floors and lightly sprucing up the kitchen and bath we rent out Bay View as a modern day replica of camps from long ago. The open timbers are reminiscent of my mom and dad's camp. I do not know of another camp on the lake with so much of the Adirondack feel left intact.
My girlfriend and I stayed in the Viewette and absolutely loved it. The cottage was wonderful and the surrounding area was gorgeous. We had so much fun and so many memories. Val and Tom were so easy to work with and truly great people. I would highly recommend staying at the Viewette.
Stayed June, 2008
