Newfound is quiet, though. And that is one thing you will hear from locals and visitors alike. As a business owner, the majority of my guest often remark how quiet it is. Some evenings, depending on how the wind is carried, you can hear loons on the lake. My favorite sound are the coyotes howling in the distance. If my labs hear them, they are ready to run with them.
True, we do not have the "commercialism" that the big lake has. However, we have the relaxed pace of sitting on porches, hiking the local trails, kayaking the lake, biking the Heritage Trail, strolling thru downtown Bristol, fishing for 1 of 22 species of fish, or stopping by the Audubon Society.
