Boulders Resort
Ranked #49 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed July 26, 2007

The reason I am writing a review is because when I was researching hotels to stay at in Lake George, NY I found Boulders Resort online and there was not one review about it anywhere! Curagiously, we booked it anyway. This was a beautiful place to stay. No regrets. It was directly on the lake (not all of the hotels are so be careful). My husband and I stayed in a private cottage for our first year wedding anniversary and it was just right. It had 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Each cottage has its own BBQ grill so you can cook your own food if you want to. When we arrived the property looked very well taken care of. The cottage we stayed in was perfectly clean. They had canoes, rowboats, and kayaks ready to use for free just as the website advertises. However, the boats are a little cheaply made so they weren't the most pleasant to be in. The lake was gorgeous and peaceful. There are no housekeepers that come in to clean while you're there- they only clean after you leave and there's a "TIP" envelope on the table that's meant for the cleaning crew. There's a very small TV and a very large air conditioner that definitely cooled down the whole cottage. Oh but the cottage had a very musty smell to it. We had to buy air freshener but we got used to the smell. Also, we had no bug problems, but every once in a while we'd find a big black ant crawling in our cottage. Nothing crazy. There were no bed bugs, but the beds weren't overly comfortable. That's one thing they could upgrade! The road it's located on is full of other hotels and resorts (mostly "mom and pop" inns) and Boulders was by far one of the nicest on the road. We went during pre-season so it was much cheaper than in season rates and the weather was great. The area is nice- in Lake George Village there are lots of gift shops, arcades, and restaurants. Best gift shop was Indian Teepee and best BBQ ribs around is at Smokey Joe's BBQ. One thing about the area that was very frustrating is that most restaurants, even the chain ones like Outback, Applebees, and Olive Garden were closed during the day or only open for the weekends. It was very odd and made it a bit difficult to find good places to eat during the weekdays. I'm not sure if it's only like that during off season times. Overall we enjoyed it. If you're looking for a bigger, more luxurious place please check out the Lodges at Cresthaven- beautiful! Depe Dene looked nice as well.
