Boulders Resort
Ranked #49 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Just came back after expending the weekend of 5/17-5-19 there and the experience, you couldn't ask for better water view during the day, and sharing with families and friends by the firepit at night. Also they're changing all the beds and using memory foam matters made in the USA. Book early. Service was great as well cleanliness.

When we arrived at the boulder resort, after missing the poorly marked driveway three times, it seemed like a charming place. There were families everywhere enjoying the badminton court, playing basketball, and soakin up the sun by the lakeside. Most promising, there was the smell of burgers on the grill, or rather a grill as there is one for each cabin. Then we were sent across the street up a treacherous hill to a separate collection of cabins. A bit further from the lake than expected, but we were informed that there was a fire pit fully stocked and in working order that we could use at any time... Little did we know. At 12am a group of people came to use the fire pit and greeted us with phrases such as "what's your problem, [--]?" and "shut up, or I'll come in there old man!" after exhausting our own attempts to get them to leave, we called the police. At 4:05 someone named Theresea screamed, but we didn't see her again. The police arrived around 4:15 and took away three of the drunks. If you like to stay up late and meet new people in an unexpected manner, this is the place for you, but it might not be family friendly.

Sincerely,
[--] out at Boulder

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Hot Air Balloon festival. The property itself was ok, the playground was very dirty so my 3 year old son could not enjoy it. The room was clean, just the basics. Staff was very nice. We had a two floor 3 bedroom townhouse with a deck area.The walls had scuffs everywhere but everything else was ok. It is right on the lake, so we were able to see fireworks from the edge of the water. We also sat by the fire pit at night, pretty relaxing. With all the places to stay in LG, I dont think I would return to this 'resort'.

I recently stayed at the Boulder's resort. Although I would of wished it it was in the summer we were there in September. The weather was not favourable for us so we didn't get to enjoy the vast activities that the resort has to offer. Upon our arrival a very nice lady greated us and told us about the canoes, the BBQ's (they have lineups of them) and the Arcade room.
I was lucky as the city was not very busy that weekend I was able toget some much needed R and R.

Mike, Joann, and crew are the best. Our group consists of about 25+, and now with other families that go up same time every year. My group has been going there about 18-20yrs staight. My year was 13, and booked for next year. With other groups that joined us 35+. Every Sunday night, we all do our family dinner, the staff goes out of there way to make it great, each year.Boulders is a great destination for groups, and if your solo. Theres no other resort up there that will do what Boulders does to make your stay enjoyable, and worry free. I wouldn't spend each year the money to go there if it wasn't! From one hard working family to others; GO TO BOULDERS!!!! Tell Mike and JoAnn, the McNeill group sent you!!!!!

Room Tip: Cottages 4, 5, 6; are great, main house, good, all others are really good.

We've been coming here for almost 20 years and have been very happy with the resort. Mike the owner and Joanne the manager have been very accomidating to our groups needs. We come up every year with a group of 35 people ranging in ages from 9 to 60. Plenty of activities and water sports for the whole family, including a Thursday BBQ.

Room Tip: Cabins 1, 6, 7, 8, 12 are the ones we use and they fit our needs.

went with my 2 boys- 6 & 4 and had a blast! the place is clean, spacious, comfi, build with a children in mind. we didnt see the kids. they have 3 swings that you dont need to be on top of your kids - they can get up and down by themselves. in the pool they have diffrent kind of floats, grass well maintain, their "service car" is always around- so if you need something there is always someone to talk to. they provide wood for the fire. pool is heated (september) so we will defenitly will go back. but this is all true for the off season. never been there in the summer time.
