We stayed at the Boathouse June 18-20 and had a wonderful stay.
First I think it is helpful to know who is writing any review. My husband and I are 32 and have two small children. We seldom get away together, but when we do we like to go somewhere nice and worth our money. Lake George is a favorite location of ours. Usually we camp on the islands, but this June we wanted to do something special, so we decided on The Boathouse. We found Joe and Patti to be very friendly and feel lucky to have enjoyed this fabulous lake front property; there truly is not a place with better ambiance on the lake.
The b+b has a beautiful southerly view of the lake. Sitting on the deck or anywhere on the grounds is fabulous and relaxing. We stayed in theTanner room, which was quite nice. It does have its own small porch that it shares with the adjacent room. The view is quite nice from this porch too. My husband and I appreciated the small porch, but we enjoyed the main deck even more. When we return, we will probably stay in one of the Allaya or Ciara room to save a little money since we loved the main deck so much and really loved sitting by the water. I did peek in both of these rooms. Though smaller than the Tanner room, they are very nice. I will tell you that the bathroom for the one is not in the room, but across the hall from it (this is literally 2 steps away). If you need the bathroom in your room, just call to ask which one you should book so you can have this amenity.
The Boathouse has a perfect location. It is walking distance to everything in the town of Bolton, including the Sagamore. I do recommend going to the Sagamore for at least a drink. There are also plenty of outdoor activites in the area, including great short and long hiking trails, a drive up Prospect mountain, boating access points, beaches, etc.
Joe also has a Hacker Craft. My husband and I have always watched these beautiful boats from afar and wanted to ride in one. We did on our trip. We spoke to another couple at the b+b and they too were interested in a ride. If you like boating and want a thrill, go out on the boat. It is well worth the experience. Joe also takes you to all of the popular sites in the Narrows (a part of the lake).
Enjoy your stay with Patti and Joe...but most importantly be sure to enjoy the majestic beauty of Lake George.
If you are looking for a getaway, I highly recommend this place.
