Nice relaxing boat trip

We enjoyed this trip around the lake. It was a relaxing way to end our day and a nice break before dinner.

This whole area is beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed the quiet serenity of the guide And the boat ride. In a world of noise and the constant barrage Of electronics and advertisements this is a welcome respite. The staff on the glimmer-glass the hotel And the restaurant were polite and accommodating. We would highly recommend this lakefront And it's amenities... More

They didn't seem to want to sell us tickets or take our money, and their manner was quite indifferent. We showed up for the last boat tour of the day (5:00 departure) at about 3:30/4:00. They told us they didn't sell tickets until 4:30. We returned at 4:25. They still didn't act too interested in taking our money and informed... More

A Sunday in June brought us to this destination. The beautiful weather called for an examination of the lake. An hour before 3 pm we stopped by to inquire about tickets. Rules are: you have to show up 15 minutes before sailing (3 pm). If there are 10 passengers, they will sell tickets. There had been 20 inquiries, but no... More

The Glimmerglass Queen showed you wonderful views of the lake. It was about an hour long trip around the lake. The ride was very relaxing but it was a tad chilly on the day we went. The lake was just beautiful when you see it from the boat. We were the 3 people who made up the 10 required for... More

Excellent value for the money. Very informative. Length of tour, perfect. Learned a lot about the area with out feeling like I was sitting in a lecture, and, there was a lot of quiet peaceful time to take in the scenery with out chatter. Beautiful spot, so nice to see the lake this way.

We stayed at the Lake Front Hotel in Cooperstown and received one free boat ride on the Glimmerglass Queen. Otsego Lake was once known as Glimmerglass and was featured in James Fenimore Cooper's novels The Pioneers and The Deerslayer. The nine mile long lake is located in Otsego County, New York and is the source of the Susquehanna River. Our... More

This was a very pleasant one-hour boat ride. We especially liked that the first 15 minutes or so was narrated, telling us about the area we were seeing, and then the commentary ended. Often boat trips in tourist areas have endless, mostly silly commentary which gets annoying. This was interesting and informative but also not excessive. The trip itself was... More

The lake is beautiful, the scenery around it too. The narative is only for the beginning of the trip and informative. Then the captain stops talking and you just enjoy a relaxing trip. There is plenty of seating inside and out and very comfortable.There is a small bar serving alcoholic and virgin drinks as well as coffee with someone to... More
