About the neighbourhood
Located on Route 56 between Route 37 in Massena, and US 11 in Potsdam. A small hill and cemetery in the corner by the Highway along with the distance the house is set back from the road helps keep it quiet. This section of the Raquette River is 15 miles from entering the St. Lawrence, and 3 miles down from the last dam. It a migratory waterfowl route and a natural section of the river that the various fish species still 'run' to spawn. To walk down to the river requires a hike of 100+ yards down a steep hill. A truly spectacular section of the Raquette River and Grantville State Forest. In the summer and during times when the water is not unusually high, the riverbank can be accessed along the rapids and both above and below the rapids.
Getting around
Large garage parking with one automatic door.
From the highway out front it is less than 100 miles to Montreal, Ottawa, or Lake Placid. 25 miles to Canton. Less than 15 miles to Potsdam, Waddington, The Robert Moses State Park, The Nicandri Nature Center and within 5 miles of Massena.
