Our stay at Joe and Pattie's Boathouse B&B was wonderful. We booked the Isabella suite, it was a lovely room in the coach house and had the added benefit of a balcony. It really was just perfect looking out at the lake, watching the sun rise with a coffee - I would highly recommend this room. Breakfast was served family...

Joe and Patti's B&B is absolutely one of the most quaint, and beautiful places to be on the lake. With the breathtaking views, and local surroundings makes it a gem. What a treat to have had a lovely stay here. Joe and Patti are so warm and kind and their hospitality made this stay an amazing one. If you stay...

We stayed in the Tanner Room- w/ a comfortable king bed, "turret" alcove w/ windows and small balcony shared w/ room next door. Also a mini fridge. Beautiful view! It is a historic inn, so the room + bathroom are smaller in the main house, but very charming - we like it and didnt mind at all. The shower is...

Beautiful location and ambience. The proprietor Joe was extreme rude and abusive. If you go there do not move any of the outdoor furniture as you will receive a tirade of abuse and threat of $1000 charge on your credit card. Rooms extremely small especially bathroom. Breakfast quite meagre eg some pieces of strawberries with dollop of yoghurt sprinkling of...

We are sorry if you had a less than pleasurable experience here at the Boathouse but we find it necessary to elaborate on why you thought we may have been rude to you and it certainly wasn’t just because you moved a chair. The reason why you were spoken to was because you moved a wicker rocker directly in front...

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I stayed at the Boathouse Bed and Breakfast for our 5-day honeymoon, and we were not disappointed! We stayed in Isabella's "Sweet" which is located in a separate building than the main bed and breakfast, but was just as lovely. The room was equipped with a gas fire place, a balcony, jacuzzi...

The boat ride was amazing and the room also was amazing. Great views from the Mason suite balcony. Came here for our 12th wedding anniversary and could not be more pleased. Enjoyed every second! Well worth the money and travel time from new Jersey.

Rooms are beautiful, they are equipped with everything we could think of even a mood machine with sounds of water wind ect. Never saw it in a hotel. Beautiful views owners at very very friendly and around to help. Cannot say enough good things about The Boathouse.

From the moment we arrived we new this would be a special place just based on its location on Lake George but never did we expect that when we left we would miss the socializing with the proprietors Patty, Joe and their assistant Laura. They simply make your stay so comfortable and the eclectic group of people staying there added...

The Boathouse is by far the nicest B&B I have ever stayed...ever. The property is beautifully landscaped with flowers, the rooms are decorated with elegance, and with views of the lake out every window- you get to enjoy everything at once! We arrived during the afternoon and went right into the town of Bolton Landing- the town is walking distance...

Wow, what a place. If you're into history and home restorations, this is your place. The story of this house is fascinating and the work that was done to get it back to new is amazing. Owners Joe and Patti, along with Laura, make you feel right at home as soon as you walk through the door. Joe is always...
