This cottage was built by our grandfather in 1955. It is called Overbank because it is nestled in some trees at the very top of a bank with a 180 degree view of beautiful Lake George. It has a 24’ long screened in porch with dining table for six which looks directly down on the water. The window in the bedroom opens onto the porch so you can hear the lapping of waves below you as you go to sleep in a comfy queen sized bed.

Awesome as usual
Wonderful! We love how people love the place as much as we do and come back for more each year. I give most of the credit to the setting. It is hard to beat a crystal clear lake that is surrounded by mountains and has a little island to explore. Just add some friends around the fire with some beer and wine and that pretty much guarantees a great time! Look forward to hearing from you next year.
The house is beautifully located right on the lake. Sitting on the porch is comfortable and relaxing, with nice breezes and the lapping of water. The place is very small but for two people it was fine. Only negative was smoke from the outside firepit of the house behind us, but that was one night.
I am glad you could relax and enjoy the porch and that gorgeous view.
Compared to our other one-room log cabin, this one is big! Haha! It has a bedroom and 4 twin beds in the loft. But you are right, it is very comfortable for a couple.
Unfortunately, when the sunsets and the cool mountain air rolls down the mountain it brings the smoke from the fire ring right past this cabin and out onto the lake. You have to shut the back windows and door, but some smoke will come around to the porch. I wish I knew a way to stop this without getting rid of the fire ring which people love, or adding a high smoke stack which is out of the question. Travelers beware, if you have any lung issues or this would be annoying, either take the back cabin #263457 on HomeAway, or pick another place. I think we'll be keeping the fire ring especially since it is not used every night.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and giving us and travelers this important feedback. All the Best, Lee
Beautiful and well maintained
Haha! I love your brevity!! "Awesome" sums it up. Lake George truly is "The Queen of American Lakes" with it's crystal clear water. Where else are you swimming in drinking water?
Thank you for appreciating our efforts to provide a comfortable and well equipped cottage while you enjoy the beautiful setting. We're looking forward to having you come again.
Peace and serenity
Such an enjoyable experience staying at this cabin. I can't wait to go back.
Paradise on a lake !
We just completed our 5th annual vacation stay at Oxford Cottage "Overbank". We travel a lot, but returning to Overbank at Lake George is always a high light for us. We love the quiet, the simplicity, the location and oh my, the fabulous view. Owners Lee and Glenn are friendly and helpful and always looking for suggestions to make a great place even better!
Glenn and I are so happy that you love the place as much as we do. Your encouragement means a lot to us as we press through the trials of preserving and improving the place. We look forward to surprising you with something new next year. Have a fun and cozy winter! Lee and Glenn
My family and I had a wonderful time during our stay here! The views are breathtaking! The water was so clear and the property, as well as the cabins were kept up very nicely. We enjoyed the canoe and kayak that were available on the property, along with the fire pit for our evening smore time. The kids absolutely loved the loft areas - and the beds, as well as the cabins, were very comfortable. The owners were very prompt accommodating, informative and friendly. Overall we can't say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves here. We will definitely be back!
We are so glad you had a wonderful time making memories with your family. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am sure this will be helpful to other travelers. Until next year ....
All the best, Lee and Glenn
Lake George is known as “The Queen of American Lakes”. The crystal clear water, pine scented air and gorgeous mountains that change color throughout the day and seasons draw people back to the basics. The scenic beauty causes people to relax a little more each day as they swim, hike, boat or stare into a fire with family and friends.
