This is our second time staying at the Contessa and renting a boat. We had a big group with lots of kids, including my brother's family visiting from Sweden and everything was great. Pool is nice and clean (and pretty warm) and you CANNOT beat the view of Lake George, just stunning. Last year we rented the 3BR/2BA cabin and... More

Recently, myself and 10 friends rented a pontoon boat from Bob. He comes off as a cantankerous old coot, but I think that's his shtick. After talking with him for a while (and taking our share of zingers), he's a pretty good guy.

#1- I made a point to call the Contessa office early in the day to make sure someone would be available for a late check-in (after 10pm). As I was trying to explain to Bob what time I would be arriving, he just kept talking Over me over me saying “any time after 2, any time after 2”. Ok fine.... More

Contessaresort, Owner at Contessa Lake George Motel & Resort, responded to this review

The only response I have to this review is that this lady doesn't know the meaning of the word truth. I did, however, call her some vulgar names after she screamed some nasty vulgar names at me in my office, in front of my daughter. I WILL NOT TAKE THAT FROM ANYONE, no matter who they think they are!!! More

We had a lovely stay at the Contessa. This is a reasonably priced property that is well maintained by a friendly staff. The town of Bolton landing is filled with the nicest people I have come across in a long time. The views were spectacular. Only a few downsides - the dock is not lit up at night so if... More

My family and I frequent Bolton Landing in the summer and always stay at Contessa Resort. Captain Bob takes great pride in his establishment. The rooms are clean, the grounds are up kept, and his fleet of pontoon boats are well maintained. This past trip we did a 1/2 day rental with one of his boats that my kids and... More

Found this wonderful property after spending a horrible night in a hotel in the Village of Lake George. Where accommodations in the the Village are noisily lined up shoulder to shoulder, Captain Bob's Contessa Hotel is located directly on Lake George about 10 miles from the Village. Cabin/room was great; clean with wonderful views of the lake. It included a... More

The Contessa Resort is the place to go when you go to Lke George. Everything is beautiful and immaculate. You can fish off the deep water dock, or rent a beautiful pontoon boat to go out on the lake. Bob is, without question, a gentleman to the core. He is sweet, funny and takes care of everything so you can... More

Immaculate accommodations, pool & grounds. The lodgings are situated so as to provide privacy and breathtaking views of Lake George. Units are very well stocked. Our host, Captain Bob, recommended some great restaurants & our favorite was a wonderful, authentic German place called "Pumpernickel's". Great food, great service & atmosphere. Wonderful, relaxing stay with our daughter and two grand-kid's ages... More

Although, we did not stay at the Contessa we rented a pontoon boat from Captain Bob. This was the second year in a row and we will definitely be back again next year. We received courteous, knowledgeable and friendly service. Captain Bob even gave us great restaurant recommendations! The boat was clean and well maintained! We also noticed how well... More
