I cannot say enough positive about this gorgeous Mansion and the experience we enjoyed. We were a family of three visiting in July, 2016. When we first drove up to the Mansion, we were thrilled at the spooky feeling of being in The Shining!!! When you enter though, the energy speaks to the beautiful family home it was and the... More

I picked the Overlook because of the movie "The Shining", haha! But really because of the tripadvisor reviews and descriptions. What a neat little house (not!), with so much history. Mik took us on the bottom to top tour when we arrived and we found it fascinating! Everything was perfect, we were able to upgrade our room to one with... More

Stayed at The Overlook Mansion for just one night (mistake - should have been longer) en-route from London Ontario to Stowe Vermont. Little Falls seemed the perfect location and a change from our usual stop-offs like Utica or Albany area. Mike was a perfect host - helped us with our luggage and like others have said gave us a guided... More

My husband booked a room at Overlook Mansion because he thought I would like it...I loved it! We stayed in the Balcony room and it was was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The room was tastefully decorated. The enclosed balcony was great. We sat out there with a glass of wine and enjoyed the beautiful view of Little Falls.... More

We stayed at the Overlook Mansion with a WCNY PBS TV auction gift certificate. My partner and I brought our 25 year old daughter who was allowed to stay in our room on an air mattress. The hosts graciously gave us two rooms for the night so my daughter got a bedroom of her own! Our room was fantastic -... More

The Overlook Mansion is a beautifully refurbished and restored historical piece of real estate. The grounds are beautiful with bushes, flowers, and gardens. In a quiet, out-of-the-way location, it's a peaceful place with wonderful views of the town. Well-maintained and manicured grounds.

My husband and I cannot sing the praises of this fine B&B enough. Set on the hillside in Little Falls, this Gothic Revival mansion is aesthetically wonderful and although just a little grand, one simultaneously feels right at home. This feeling of comfort has perhaps has much to do with Overlook Mansion's wonderful host, who made us feel so very... More

Mr. Burrell sure knew what he was doing when building this home! The Overlook Mansion is by far the most beautiful place my fiance and I have have stayed. As you arrive to the mansion you are greeted by a grand entryway, beautiful wooden doors, and Sir Jim the Innkeeper! Jim promptly checked us in and began showing us around... More

I booked the Overlook for a two night stay for two, but my initial plans were broken. So I ventured out on my own (a little retreat for myself) because I just could not pass up the opportunity to visit this gorgeous mansion. Driving uphill leading to the mansion is exciting, Jim the keeper was super sweet and gave me... More

It was a very interesting place rich in history and gave a very scenic view of Little Falls. It has a very large porch as well as open bar to enjoy. The caretaker gave us a unique tour of the house along with serving us a fantastic breakfast! I would recommend it for a weekend getaway!
