Beth’s Place-established in 2014- is a private apartment with it's own private entrance. The apartment is spacious, well-appointed and we know you will love it! Just minutes, even walking distance from downtown Potsdam. 1 mile from Clarkson, 2 miles from SUNY Potsdam, 10 miles from SLU and SUNY Canton. We are right on the Raquette River with Kayaks available for guests. Guests have their own private hot tub-not shared.

The space
Beth's Place is completely private and located on the first level of our home. It features a bedroom with a comfy queen size bed, a spacious living room with a queen size sleeper sofa, a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare a meal including a stove and medium-size refrigerator, dishes, silverware, baking dishes, cookie sheets as well as a dining area and even a gas grill for outside cooking. Beth's Place also has a lovely full bath with towels, wash clothes, and your basic toiletries, a completely private entrance and ample parking. We can also set up two twin size beds so we accommodate 6 people pretty comfortably. There is also a washer and dryer right in the unit for our guest to use.

Our guest will have two private outside spaces all to themselves. One out front facing the putting green and one outback with a grill and hot tub along with a river view. The hot tub open year round and is not shared with anyone at all but current guests of the unit. (Our other unit - Beth's Place II has it's own hot tub as well) The igloo is out back and open year round for guests to enjoy. It has plenty of room for guests and has lights. Please note, the igloo is shared with our other unit.

We have another Airbnb unit on our property if you were looking for different dates or to accommodate more people. It's called Beth's Place II.

We follow Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol, which was developed with expert guidance. Here are a few highlights:
o I sanitize high-touch surfaces, down to the doorknob
o I use cleaners and disinfectants approved by global health agencies, and I wear protective gear to help prevent cross-contamination
o I clean each room using extensive cleaning checklists
o I provide extra cleaning supplies, so you can clean as you stay
o I comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines

We have a small dog that reside on the upper 2 floors of the house. He is usually very quiet but does occasionally bark for a moment to let us know that someone has arrived.

Our property is pretty nice too! We have a putting green in the front yard and the Raquette River out back. The trail down to the Raquette River has handrails where it can be a bit challenging. We also have kayaks and fire pit down by the river for guests to enjoy. Our stretch of the Raquette River goes all the way to downtown Potsdam. You can park your kayak and enjoy all that Potsdam has to offer. Kayaking is not available after November 1st and we cover the putting green once it starts to snow.

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 running for 25+ 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 daily rental now in it's 8th year of business. We aim to please and we know you will love our space!
