This is a modern, ultra-clean and cozy dedicated vacation home. It features an open layout with cathedral ceilings and full windows facing the Raquette River and Grantville State Forest out back. The views are stunning and can be enjoyed from all areas of the property including the decks, the living room, and the open kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher. A gas grill is ready on the back deck and you'll love the view and sound of the flowing water in the best or worst of weather. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds. There is a large garage for indoor parking and an automatic garage door for your convenience. Also in the garage is a heated game room with a quality Butterfly ping pong table with great lighting, 10' ceilings and room to play. 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. Guests time and again have found Rapids Overlook as "perfect", as a destination, or for any occasion.
Enjoy beautiful views of nature right from the comforts of the living area.

About Joseph Revai
Hi I'm Joe. For 26 years I have lived just a half mile upriver of this beautiful and unique piece of paradise. When I first saw this house after being built 15 years ago, I thought it would make the perfect vacation home. Recently retired, I am happy to share this with you now!
Joseph Revai purchased this House in 2017
What makes this House unique
Located on a main road for easy access yet the house is far enough off the road to enjoy the peacefulness of the Raquette River and Grantville State Forest out back. 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.

Amazing view, incredibly clean, fantastic host.
Overall, this was one of the best VRBO experiences I've ever had. The house was beautiful, well-stocked, incredibly clean, and the views are amazing. Wonderful experience, can't wait to visit again.
Fantastic week at Rapids Overlook!
This place was a gem; it was a fabulous find. VERY clean and comfortable. Joe was very accommodating.
We rented for one week and spent the week site-seeing and hiking the northern NY state area.
We had thought we’d leave early morning and return late each day, however the house was so comfortable, we ended up sleeping in each day and cooked all our dinners in house.
We would recommend this house in a heartbeat.
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!!
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
