We chartered an afternoon tour of the lake with Bob (the owner). We rode in a 1915 refurbished boat that used to deliver mail to lake residents. It had a canopy. Bob took us all over the lake and was a wealth of information about the region. He had been coming to Blue Mt. since childhood, so he knew the... More

I loved that the tour is from a historic boat. The tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Adult beverages are not frowned upon, and the other guests on board added to our enjoyment. The sunset was beautiful, and the whole trip was very relaxing.

Wonderful 2 hour ride around Blue Mountain Lake & Eagle lake. We were on the smaller vintage boat with just one other couple. Captain Bob was a great narrator & story teller with just the right mix of historic facts, legends & humor. The ride was easy & comfortable for any age, and I especially appreciated the canopy since I... More

Took a 2+ hour narrated tour on Blue Mountain Lake and two adjoining lakes. Lovely, old boat. See many old cottages, beautiful mountains, and learn the fascinating history of the region. Friendly, knowledgable captain.

Great boats but definitely take pictures of the propeller before taking the boat out. Luckily I knew of this scam prior to renting from them and I did so. As I was pulling up to the dock the docking attendant said, sounds like you hit something. I said excuse me? He said I can hear it in the motor. You... More

Quin B, General Manager at Blue Mountain Lake Boat Livery, responded to this review

As the manager of the Boat Livery I was disappointed in this account of our operation. Over the last 39 years we have run an honest family business. People hit rocks and destroy our equipment on a daily basis. When we show the customer the unit we now encourage them to take a picture of it on their phone as... More

They will claim your boat is damaged on return and charge you extra. If you rent from them take pictures and video when first getting the boat.

If you like spending a couple of hours aboard a vintage wood touring boat, captained by a knowledgeable, witty guy named "Crabby Bob", make sure your Adirondack trip takes in an afternoon or sunset cruise on the matchless, clear waters of Blue Mountain Lake. Each trip takes an intimate sojourn through the Eckford Chain of Lakes. The lore of the... More

After I wrote my last review about my poor experience, I received a pretty harassing private email from owner. Instead of apologizing, I got an email calling me a "coward and poor excuse for a man"....Seriously? who does that. Never in my life have I witnessed such poor behavior from a business, or from a person in general. They also... More
