We loved that we could bring our dog here and explore the trails in Lake George with her. We had so much fun hiking and visiting the town. Very dog friendly area! Definitely bring stuff to make your own meals. They provide a great kitchen. I had chili cooking in the crock pot while we were out and about. Great...

The heater in the room is a vent free. The tag on the unit specifically states not to install the unit in a bedroom. I was so worried if I was going to wake up in the morning. The carpet in the room had stains too.

We stayed at Contessa's a few years ago and it was very nice. This year ( Memorial Day Weekend) we went back and stayed. It was really bad - we had no utensils and they did not have their pool open - it was in the 90's everyday - every other hotel have their pool open except for this one....

The cabin we got #9 was great. The views from #9 cabin were exceptional. Waking up in the morning and seeing the mountain across the lake in full fall colors was breathtaking. The young lady in the office was very helpful. Next time we would stay for a longer period of time to just enjoy that view. In seeing the...

I was at the resort with my family and another family for a week long stay last month. We found the views from this resort to be phenomenal, it is also very quiet and serene. The grounds are extremely well kept and the staff aside from the owners are all pleasant and accommodating. Bob's daughter, Christine at front desk screamed...

I requested a quiet unit with a nice view to getaway and relax for the weekend. The owner. Bob, was very accommodating and met all our requests, even though it was last minute decision for us to go away. Excellent weekend, cant wait to go back!

Swung by the Contessa Resort Motel (Bolton's Landing) last year to rent a pontoon boat for a camping trip from Captain Bob. We had no problem getting our paperwork sorted out, paying up (at a more reasonable price than any other pontoon rentals in the area I might add), and getting out on the water. The Cap'n kept us laughing...

My friends and I have rented pontoon boats from Captain Bob for the past couple of years. The boats were clean and in great working order, and the service was pretty good, albeit rough around the edges. His location is very convenient for Lake George island camping and it's nice to be able to park our car in the lot...

The confirmation clearly states "TO PLEASE REPLY TO THE EMAIL STATING YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS." Which he was instructed to do on the phone and in the email.
