This modern, ultra-clean and cozy vacation home features an open layout with cathedral ceilings and full windows facing the river and state forest out back. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher. A gas grill is also available and you'll love the sound of the flowing water while grilling or relaxing on the deck, anytime outside, or if the temperature is right for opening the windows, while indoors too! There is a large garage for indoor parking and an automatic garage door for your convenience. Also in the garage is a separate game room that can be heated and includes a ping pong table and a foosball table. The house is on Route 56 for easy access but is back more than 100 yards from the road which helps keep it quiet. A hill in one corner by the road with a small cemetery also shields the traffic. Although out of town, the house is served by a municipal water district and has great fresh water.

About Joseph Revai
I am a lifelong native of the North Country and have lived just upriver of this property for 25 years. I enjoy family time and many outdoor activities including gardening, hunting, fishing, table tennis, and spending time on and along the beautiful Raquette River out back.
Joseph Revai purchased this House in 2017
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits of this property are many. It is on a main road for easy access to and from destinations yet the house is far enough off the road to appreciate the peacefulness of the river. It is out of town yet is served by a municipal water supply with great fresh tap water. Guests find themselves very relaxed and comfortable in this house. Hearing the sound of the water from exiting the car or from the deck surely helps with that. It is one of the few places along the river where it flows directly to the St. Lawrence and also has the natural protection of the state forest. Great habitat for the fish and game and for its viewing.

Relaxing and comfortable stay
The house is conveniently located near Massena, Potsdam and Canton. The house itself is spotlessly clean, and the large livingroom/kitchen area made for a perfect spot to relax. Everything is in immaculate condition, and I would highly recommend this home to anyone.
Thanks Felicia for your thoughtful review. I'm glad you found the house really comfortable and enjoyed your stay. And thank you for leaving the house neat and clean. I would be happy to have you stay again on a future visit to the area. Cheers
We have stayed at many places but the Rapids Overlook is by far one of the very best! The location is spectacular with a view of the rapids, forest and wildlife that will take your breath away! The soft breezes and abundance of fireflies in the evening are only eclipsed by the crush of stars that surround you. The sound of the rapids will lull you to sleep every night. The cottage is immaculate and charming and has all the modern conveniences you require. It is perfectly located to provide privacy yet is close to shopping and restaurants. The cottage is thoughtfully stocked with anything that you may have forgotten. Our host, Joe Revai is attentive, accommodating and a wealth of information about the area. I rate this cottage, location and host a five star!!
The Eugene Nicandri Nature Center located in the Robert Moses Sate Park is just over 15 miles away.

Clarkson University and SUNY Potsdam are easy destinations with this home only 15 miles north of Potsdam. 25 milea to SUNY Canton and St. Lawrence University. The home is geographically located less than 100 miles from Montreal, Ottawa, and Lake Placid.
