About Beth Reasoner

We are James and Beth Reasoner and we have lived in Potsdam, NY for most of our lives. One of the many things that keeps us busy is our apartment rental business which we have been doing for 20+ years here in Potsdam. Over the years we have realized that there is a big need for nice affordable temporary lodging in this area. So here we are, our first Inn open for business! We aim to please and we know you will love our space!

Beth Reasoner purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Beth Reasoner chose Potsdam

My husband and I originally purchased this property to finish and then sell. As we were working on the property we fell in love with the land and the river and decided to sell our house and move in the this home.

What makes this apartment unique

One very unique benefit to our property is you can kayak to the village of Potsdam to enjoy all that it has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and private entrance. The house was clean and updated with a personal touch. It was a little warm in the main bedroom but we were able to remedy with the fan and air-conditioning unit in the main room. I would definitely come back here!

Beautiful property in Potsdam

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at Beth's Place. This is my all time favorite place to stay in Potsdam. This property is furnished so beautifully! It is absolutely spotless. Beth is amazingly easy to communicate with and answers all questions immediately. The property is right on the river and the grounds are stunning!

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Beth’s Place to Stay far exceeded my expectations. The location is both picturesque on the river and conveniently located to Clarkson and Potsdam. The apartment is private, immaculate, and tastefully decorated. We were able to visit our son at Clarkson and spend time together as a family in this comfortable home like setting. Everything that we needed was provided. Beth was friendly and easy to communicate with yet respected our privacy. This was a much nicer alternative to a hotel room. We look forward to returning throughout the upcoming years!

The apartment was perfect for our short 2 night trip. I would have loved to take advantage of the fire pit and kayaking given a longer visit. Beth was great and super accommodating.

Beautiful apartment in Potsdam

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom apartment is beautifully decorated and very, very clean. It is part of a larger house but is very private. The apartment itself was spacious and perfect for the three of us. The area is gorgeous with a beautiful river in the back with the opportunity to kayak or canoe or just relax by the water.

Beth (the owner) was a pleasure to work with. She was there to greet us and gave us a tour of the apartment and the grounds. The apartment is 5 minutes from the town of Potsdam and close to all stores and restaurants.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beth's place was even better than we expected! It was beautifully decorated, spotless, and a great location near our Clarkson student/daughter. The bed is wonderful and there's room to stretch and relax. The path down to the river is enchanting. What a gorgeous spot!
