We recently spent one night at the Contessa Resort.The rooms were very nice.It was definitely one of the most comfortable hotel beds we had slept in,and a four poster bed at that.The room had a full size fridge,a sink and microwave and a full private deck with a few of Lake George.The location was also good.We would definitely stay there again.

I was very nervous about staying here with my friends after reading all the reviews of Captain Bob. However, you can't always believe what you hear. I think when respect is given it is received. Captain Bob's property is not a corporate hotel like the Hilton, Radisson etc so he personally cares about his property and what people are doing around it. Myself and my friends are pretty rowdy and like to have a good time and we didn't have issues but again, we treated the cabin, property with respect!
The 3 bedroom cabin was EMACULATE! So clean ans spacious with beautiful decor. It was perfect for us 3 couples. We even rented a pantoon on Saturday, which Bob threw in a free tubing raft. He is very thorough with his boats and pay attention because you don't want to loose your security deposit! When we came back he was joking around with us and asked 5 times if we had fun! Grounds were awesome! Kayaks, volleyball, pool. We even brought cornhole that we set up in the playground area. We had a BLAST! Very close to stores, shops, restaurants etc. We reccommend it!

We have rented a pontoon boat from captain Bob several times over the years and have always had a great time and a good experience. We rented a brand new boat last week and plan to do the same this week.

We had one of the less expensive units that came with a quasi mini-kitchen, which was key. (We brought a hot pot for making coffee.) The view from the decks is splendid. The room was new and clean, so new the carpet was still off-gassing a bit. It needed another lamp or two to be more cozy, and maybe better pillows, but was still quite satisfactory. The property sits on a steep descent overlooking the lake, and there are docks at the bottom. (Bob rents Bennington pontoon motorboats.) No swimming, alas, and no beach, but it is a nice place to sit in the evening. There is a pool at the top, popular with families. There are lots of fun amenities on the property, including ping-pong, and various playground rides. And peach and apple trees, and tall pines and cypresses. Bob is a no-nonsense sort of fellow, but human. He allowed us to dock our little sailboat there, which we very much appreciated. One inconvenience: no working wi-fi whatsoever, though passwords were offered. The bottom line is that the setting is fantastic, the place is very clean, the custodial staff friendly, and it is perfect for kids, and a short walk from a little beach just down the main road. Bolton's landing is cute and intimate. I suggest Dave's market, next to Tops, for pizzas, food essentials, and sandwiches. Closes at 7. We will be back!

We had a great time at Contessa resort. Do not let the negative reviews scare you. My family of four stayed in one of the Contessa Resorts Penthouse Suites and it was perfect! We had a large deck with grill that overlooked the pool and Lake George. We even had the pleasure of being visited by some chickens one morning. The views of the lake are amazing and the Penthouse Suite was very clean. We will most definitely be back again next year!
