About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 6

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.

Great Vacation Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is wonderful on Lake George, NY! It's clean, simple, very refreshing with mountain view of the foliage, a dock on Lake George for stargazing, and a canoe for paddling to islands across the lake for adventures! My boyfriend and I also climbed Thomas Mountain nearby to get a better view of the lake. I loved the hot shower too!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. The same day you left we started making improvements for next year! We bought a cute gas-fueled wood stove for the chilly nights and mornings. We are renovating the kitchen and building in a fun loft for kids. I can't wait for you to see it on your next visit. Have a wonderful year. Lee

Paradise on a lake !

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

My family and I had a wonderful time. First time at lake George and it was amazing. My son took the kayak out at 5:30 fish and came back for breakfast. It was great having a kayak and canoe that came along with rental. At night we sat out on the dock and looked at all of the stars. It was so beautiful so happy for the chance to go. The cabin has everything you need and is very comfy. Hopefully will be able to go longer next time. Wonderful stay. Thank you Lee and Glenn.

My husband and I spent the weekend (early October) at the cabin and it was fantastic. The scenery is just breathtaking! The lack of cell phone reception was a little overwhelming at first but by the second day the peace and quiet was refreshing. Everything was clean and basic amenities were provided. Working with Glenn was great and he was always willing to answer questions or give recommendations. We can't wait to go back perhaps in warmer weather as the lake and dock area was great. I've never seen water that clear (even in the Caribbean). I would recommend this cabin to a couple looking for a weekend away or a family looking for an adventurous vacation.

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.
