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

Captains Bobs boat rental is the best, fair priced, boat rental company in Lake George. Boats are super clean, and well maintained. The best part is customer service, when your on vacation you want everything to be easy and Captain Bob sure makes it easy! Always a great time!

Captain Bobs Marina and Resort is a treasure. His boats/pontoons are awesome and the place is first class. We always went to Chics Marina and found over the years that the service and boats have gone down hill. Captain Bobs boats are knew and have the right size engines and actually give you a real anchor to use. Our experience... More

It was a great family getaway for a couple of nights in August 2014! Captain Bob is a great man (a little rough, but you just need to get used to his sense of humor). He was very helpful with everything regarding cottage, Wi-Fi or boat. Our 2 bedroom cottage was very nice, a little small, but recently built/renovated and... More

Stay at the Contessa. I have been to Bolton Lading four times, stayed twice at the Sagamore and the last two times at the Contessa Resort. Contessa wins hands down. The Sagamore is a beautiful resort but the Contessa is also. We stayed at the townhouse rooms at the Sagamore and our view off of our back deck was of... More

We had a great time!! We were in Unit 17 2 bedroom penthouse. It was very clean with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. Bob was very friendly and helpful along with his daughter and staff who helped me with tying up my boat! We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and the grill was very convenient. The grounds... More
