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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

After emailing the owner and providing my credit card info to reserve a room. We arrived for the weekend and were told we had no reservation.

You reserved a room for two guests at a... More

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. Without that Master card and Visa will not uphold a charge back by someone who cancels or doesn't show up for their reservation. We will continue to run our business in... More

Terrible experience with Bob. First off, I do not know how he gets customers or any repeat customers. He has 0 people skills. We went to speak with him about renting to boat and was having a conversation with him and he had headphones in the entire time! Be ruder Bob. Having not rented a boat in a few years,... More

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
