“Gets better every year.”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

I have stayed at Contessa several times and can honestly say that it improves every year. The views are second to none. The owner, Bob always makes sure that you have what you need and are having a good time. This trip, Bob was standing on a ladder adjusting the outdoor lighting timer for us, despite the fact that he was scheduled to undergo knee surgery a couple of days later. The resort is great and the prices are very reasonable.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Contessa for a Fall week-end at Lake George and it was great! We had a beautiful view of the lake from our cabin, which was spacious and very clean. We also had a full peach tree outside the cabin which the owner, Bob, said we could enjoy.....and we did! The peaches were a nice added bonus. We were able to walk into town (Bolton Landing) each morning for breakfast and loved the convenience of the location. We will definately return!! We thank Bob for his continued support of the Double H Ranch (a special local camp for children with critical illnesses). This is how we were able to go to the Contessa.....Bob donated week-end stays at a recent fundraiser. A win all around!!

I was pleasantly surprised by this Inn. The views from our cabin were stunning. The rooms were neat and very clean. Captain Bob was very helpful and came around to check on us during our stay. Everything you need is right there on the property. It's very close to the little town in Bolton Landing. All in all this was a great Hotel and we will be staying there again soon. Thank you Contessa!!!!!!!!!!

This kicked back, beautiful scenery, resort was a perfect place for my buddies and I to get away from the busy life of the city and just hang around with the guys and do guy things. While we were there we got to rent a boat and cruise the lake that was overlooked by this huge vegetated mountain and visited different sites that were very pleasant to have drinks and go for a swim.
The units we stayed in could either be masculine or family orientated but either way you look at it all the accommodations were there to make this trip superb. The owner, Capt. Bob was very helpful in guiding us to the hot spots that were available in the small town just down the road, and anything we needed he made it happen. I would definitely recommend this place to any family or group of guys like us or even a couple that just wants to get away for the weekend.

Clean place, not a bad location but the owner is very hard to deal with. He has an abrupt way about him that does not make for comfortable conversatiosn at all even when he is trying to help. Not usre I would go back there!

Booked a great two bedroom unit with the most beautiful view earlier in the season. Captain Bob couldn't be more accommodating as well as the on-site housekeeping staff. Spotless unit, recently updated and top notch. Rented a boat for the day and had the best of times. Captain Bob recommended some restaurants we really enjoyed. Going back in September for a long weekend again. Love the property, amenities, view, boats and being hosted by Captain Bob!

Room Tip: Tell Captain Bob what your interested in, and then look on the website.

The Contessa is NOT A RESORT!!! Do not be fooled as I was. It is rustic: threadbare and scarred furniture; uncomfortable mattress. Very noisy. The staff is sporadically available; unable to contact Bob. Do not waste your $165/night. Nancy G/New Jersey
