“Enjoy beautiful views of lake from entire resort.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2009

We had a group of 18 staying in multiple cabins and motel rooms. Each type of accomodation has its own deck to relax and enjoy the lake view. And the views of the lake are EVERYWHERE at Contessa. The pool area is large, plenty of lounge chairs. There is a playground for the kids, it was even big enough for our makeshift whiffle ball game. We rented a boat for our week's stay and docked it right at the resort (yes, there is an extra charge for that). There are lounges down at dock area too. Our group had kids ranging from 8-19. We fished, played basketball, hung out at our deck and the pool. The town of Bolton Landing is a short walk or drive, although I wouldn't walk with small children. We ate dinners in town and enjoyed some great BBQs on our own deck (each large unit has its own gas grill and full kitchen) Contessa is a casual comfortable place to stay. We'll be back!

My wifte and kids really enjoyed the resort. The views from the pool and cabin were outstanding. The docks are very convenient. And the grounds are well maintained. The rooms were spotless.

The owner is so rude and greedy. We bring a puppy with us. The owner said that it is dog friendly. However after we arrived the resort. He asked us paid $200 deposit for the puppy or get out the resort. It was late, we had no choice and gave $200.
However, when we were leaving, he claimed the door had some scratch. And he refused to return the $200. He yelled us get out with xxxx words...

Iwill never go to this place again. I strongly suggest you not deal with this guy.

The owner was very nice while you called them and asked for the room. Once you get there, he has very bad attitude. Keep you waiting for ever to check in while he is on the phone for nothing. The devices he had was bad. Gas BBQ Grill, the gas tank hose was damaged and the grill was totally on fire when we just started. We reported to the owner, he just said, the the one from the neighbor without caring if anyone got hurt. At the end of the day, he blamed us broken his grill.

Caneo/boat - We have to spend 30 min to find the owner to borrow the oar while he was sleeping during the day. He has a sign of "knock the door for service" but obviously knocking on the door doesn't work. While we were having fun on the boat, the owner was spying on us at the dock and when we get out of the boat, he was teasing us the way we were on the boat.

A lot of bugs, spiders and masquitos in the cabin and even in the swimming pool.

This owner has the keen ability to see stains/spots on the property that are either not there or could be removed upon moderate scratching, and decides to charge you for it in ways that pleases him. There are a certain number of pre-set "dud" device(s) on the resort that simply did not work in the first place before we even come to the resort. At the end of the day, the owner spots a number of imaginary/scratchable defects (in which his maid has trouble seeing some of them also..Emperor's New Dress style) and "dud" contraption(s) and decide that since he is SUCH a nice guy, he will let us go easy this time by JUST TAKING our security deposit. HOW CONVENIENT.

Motel is on a steep slope. Great views of the Lake,

Location is good for young couples, older couples, families with older kids. Motel consists of several buildings, that sits on a steep slope affording those nice views, but the walk/driveway is steep down to the Lake. Our room was recently remodled in wood, and everything was new. There are gas-fired grills outdoors for the guests.

Our room had a fridge and coffee maker, but no coffee, so drove to the local convenience store down the street. The motel also incorporates a nice restaurant, that opens at 4:00pm, featuring a diverse dinner selection from pizza to steak. A diner is adjacent to this porperty which serves great breakfasts and lunches.

Pontoon boat rentals are available. They had canoes too. My wife and I visited and had a quiet relaxing time.

My husband and I decided to spend our last weekend for the end of the summer, @ Lake George, NY . at the last minute we drove to Bolton Landing and found a vacancy @ the Contessa off exit 22 off the northway going left off the exit.

The cabins have all been remodeled, and "Bob" gave us 3 room keys to choose our room, which most places we have stayed at dont offer you, the room, and bed were like home, so comfortable, with our own private deck too complete with table and patio chairs. Kitchen had a large frig, microwave, coffee maker and small sink too. they have a nice clean outdoor pool and even though they dont have their own private beach, Bob gave us free beach passes for the park down the road to take advantage of a wonder, hot fall day!

They also have their own restaurant too, right on the premises, delicious italian food, make a reservation you will not regret your stay.
