Bed was warm, food was good, view was lovely. It was an old place but pleasant. In a twin share room, the second bed was in a slightly claustrophobic area but the bathroom was newly renovated and very efficient.

What a wonderful time!!
Joe & Patti, our stay at your "Heaven on earth" was so wonderful and romantic!! When we arrived at the house and saw for ourselves the beauty and serenity of the lake from your porch, it was breath-taking...
I can never put into words the feeling you get as you sit on this gorgeous porch over-looking the lake and the peace that overwhelmes you.
Patti you MUST make that recipe book if you ever get the chance, I will be the first to buy one and copies for friends & family!! Your breakfast was the BEST we have had to date!! How can I ever go back to Cheerios??
Joe your stories about the lake and the history of the house were wonderful to listen to!!
Thank you so much again for making this time in our lives a little less stressful & so full of pleasure! God bless you both and Nicole you are awesome too!! The Virola's
A spectacular vacation
My wife and I were amazed at the beauty and magnificance of the Boathouse B&B. The hosts, Joe and Patti made us feel immediately at home. The views of Lake George and the mountains were breathtaking. Our room was beautiful, with a very comfortable king size bed and a porch with a view of the lake to die for. Breakfast was an experience in it's own right. The food each day was different and delicious. Starting with fresh fruit, juice and coffee, it was followed by an entree that seemed to get better each morning, if that is possible. Following the main course was a fruit Granita prepared by Patti or Nicole. Each of these tasty palate cleansers were delicious. Our vote goes to the pineapple, with the grapefruit a close second. The home itself is so warm and inviting, with comfortable furnishings, beautiful artwork and great family pictures. We are planning to return next September. The only problem with taking a vacation like this is that the bar is set so high, any place else would be hard pressed to come close. When we left, we felt as though we were leaving close friends. We can't wait to return. Thanks Joe and Patti.
My husband and I have stayed in this exquisite Bed and Breakfast many times over the last 5 years. When I discovered there was a site where I could sing the praises of this establishment, I was thrilled! This is a wonderfully decorated Bed and Breakfast, where each room is uniqely decorated and equipped with everything to make you feel at home. Patti and Joe are warm and hospitable hosts, and we felt comfortable and welcomed in their home. The views of the magnificant mountains and lake from the rooms are breathtaking. Patti's breakfast is to die for! Having stayed at many B & B's across the country, this is surely the best we have seen!
Special and charming
We loved staying at this small Inn. The owners Patty and Joe, made you feel like special friends who came for a visit to their home. Everything was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. Our room overlooked Lake George, as a matter of fact the private enclosed porch attatched to our room was over the water itself. The public porch overlooking the entire area was so comfortable for reading or visiting with other guests. The breakfast in the morning was always very good and plentiful. The location, next to the Sagamore Resort, was perfect. We did feel the Inn was a bit pricey; but we truly enjoyed our visit.
Highest Recommendation to the Boathouse B&B
My wife and I spent our wedding night in the Boathouse, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Joe & Patti were fabulous hosts, and went out of their way to accommodate us. We were married on a Saturday, and as I said, spent that night. My wife also had spent the previous two nights there. She was provided with doting attention from the owners and the staff. We had our reception at The Sagamore Hotel, right across the bridge from the Boathouse, and as part of that package, we were provided with a complimentary room at the hotel. The Sagamore is a fabulous and elegant hotel. But after seeing the Boathouse, and getting a feeling for how gracious and accommodating Joe and Patti were, we opted to give up the comp room in favor of staying at the B&B. A decision we will always be glad we made. And we will definitely be going back. If you're looking for beautiful views, peaceful surroundings, and the best hosts, the Boathouse is the place to go.
Five years in a row now we have stayed at the Boathouse during the week of the Americade. After a long day riding, it was great to come back to the Boathouse - sit on the dock with a glass of wine -looking at the boats, wildlife and mountains and then being able to retreat to our 2 person jacuzzi tub. The best is waking up to a full gourmet breakfast prepared by Patti herself, the owner, and who also makes time in her busy schedule to sit with each and every one of her guests. Joe and Patti have made us feel as comfortable as family. Thanks for opening your hearts and home.
The Boat House Bed and Breakfast on Lake George, NY is amazing! I am a bed and breakfast traveler and this is a place that I look forward to returning to every year.
The property sits on Lake George. The views from the porch or for that matter anywhere on the property are breathtaking. As I sat on the porch, sipping a nice glass of wine, looking out over the lake I was grateful to the owners (Patti and Joe) for turning their home into a Bed and Breakfast.
The rooms are lovely. The breakfast is a feast from gourmet magazine. I almost hate to tell you all how wonderful this place is for fear I will not be able to get a reservation in the future!
Romantic, relaxing and simply wonderful. A little piece of heaven. Enjoy!
The most unique up-scale B&B in Lake George NY
I have traveled all over the world and the Boathouse is by far the most unique up scale B&B that I have ever stayed in. The views of the lake and mountains from my room was the best I have ever experienced. The innkeepers Joe and Patti provided a warm and frendly atmosphere...I cannot wait for my return visit!!
The Boathouse B&B in Bolton Landing (Lake George) was fairly nice and in a good location. However, the owners, who reside on the premises, were very uptight about having ANY friends or relatives of guests stepping foot on their property. The Boathouse advertises that their guests have full privileges at the Sagamore resort located a short distance down the road. We were able to use the facilities and visit family members staying at the Sagamore. However, they were not allowed to even see our room at The Boathouse. Again, decent place to stay in a good location, if you can handle the uptight owners watching you very closely.
The Best B&B in Lake George
I stayed at the Boathouse in 2003, & 2004...what a class place. The Boathouse is right in the water...excellant views of the lake and Mountains. Also, a real plus is the Boathouse has two private Lakeside Carriage House Suites with views of the lake, with fireplaces , wet bars, private porches and jucuzzi two person tubs with oversize glass showers. The innkeepers treat you like Family and I would recommend this B&B and rate it 5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have seven rooms all with private baths so every room is a treat.

We woke up to sunshine which was the first we had seen in days so I was sort of feeling torn between racing home or spending a few moments checking out the Lake. We asked for some suggestions from the front desk and got a great tip to take the scenic drive up Prospect Mountain which was literally a few blocks away. The drive cost $10 but had several view points out over the lake ...
... short drive off the main road. Very pretty and very easy walk off the road.
We eventually ended up at Lake Champlain where we crossed the bridge and took a short walk to see the Lake Champlain lighthouse. Normally I think you could drive back to it but it was blocked off due to the season closing of the camping area. But the visitor center was still open and a very sweet lady chatted with us and directed us on how to walk to see the lighthouse. Again ...
... the window of our table. We think you will agree that the views of the lake backstopped by the mountains are gorgeous.
Given that the leaves in this area have not really started to turn yet, we hear that further north up in the “High Peaks” area of the Adirondacks, the leaves are in color. So off we go on a day trip to High Falls Gorge which is located near Lake Placid. Along the way, we encounter a beautiful waterside setting ...
... couple that rents mountain bikes, canoes, kayaks and hiking gear. Ruth showed me one of their lodging options, the Pilot's House. Ultra cool! She explained the local geography and multiple sources of The Hudson using 3-D topographical maps of the Adirondacks. Meanwhile, Dave studied my bike maps and asked me lots of questions about the ...
... paid for it all and even bought my dinner. He got the hotel because he wanted to print maps, but he never ended up doing that. It seemed like a waste of money to me. 90% of the times that we've had showers at camp, he hasn't taken one, so I don't know why he'd get a hotel room. It didn't fit with his norm. We'll go over on the ferry to Vermont tomorrow, and then he'll start heading south as I continue ...
