We used the Boulders as a backdrop for our family reunion of 25+ people. We enjoyed the townhouses which provided ample space on the covered deck for entertaining / meals and lots of room inside for relaxation and cooking. The townhouses had whole unit airconditioning (a surprise!) and were clean and well stocked with cooking utensils,etc. Each unit now has brand new memory foam mattresses which seems upscale ~ especially if you have stayed at other resorts nearby.
The pool is well maintained with a beautiful view of the lake (not true of all Lake George resorts that often have the pool in an upper parking lot while having to trudge to the lake for beach time). This made it easy to have younger children who wanted to transition frequently from pool to lake within eye sight and give freedom to older children to enjoy the water. The free water activities were abundant and easy to acquire despite the full capacity of the units. There were many extra touches by the Boulders staff that gave our trip an almost "all inclusive" feel! Kayaks, row boats, fishing were a daily occurance in addition to the staff bringing out ice pops to the children EVERY day, plentiful pool towels and a Thursday cook out. Weekly fireworks can be viewed from the beach and the fire pit is ALWAYS ready and stocked with wood!
The Lake George trolley has a stop right outside the Boulders for quick, low cost ($1) transportation in Bolton Landing, Lake George and Glens Falls.
The staff were genuine and friendly ~ determined to make our stay enjoyable. They provided assistance with all of our needs and discount tickets to local attractions like the Painted Pony Rodeo. They were consistently visible, pleasant and made every effort to be helpful and courteous.
Definately a place to return to ~ for a family vacation, or a special occassion. The town house smoke detectors are extremely sensitive ~ so just open a window or door to get the air flow going before you cook! Then, just sit back and enjoy.
