What a delightful place to spend our 25th anniversary! The innkeepers are so gracious & the inn is a beautiful, rustic escape from day-to-day madness. They could not do enough for us and made us feel so welcome. The food is good & served with a friendly smile... Bring your dog if you want to & they will enjoy the... More

We stayed here for a weekend celebration. What a colossal disappointment. On the website, the Inn looks like the perfect setting for a romantic weekend. While the grounds are expansive and well maintained, the rooms leave much to be desired. The first thing I noticed about the room was the carpet that was pulled in the center of the room.... More

We are sorry these guests didn’t enjoy their stay. Prior to their arrival, the carpet in their guestroom had been shampooed which caused slight ripple in the carpeting and scheduled for a professional “re stretch” They were informed of the ripple when they checked in and chose to stay in that specific room they booked. The ripple was short and... More

The room was romantic, the food was great. We truly enjoyed the free use of cross country skiing and snowshoes. the stocked kitchen allowing for free lunches was a nice touch if you are "on the go". Would stay here again! We are looking forward to revisiting with a group of friends.

My fiance and I spent a weekend at the inn last month. This is our second stay and it was just as lovely as two years ago. We arrived late in the evening, but were greeted warmly. Our room was listed as a bronze level this time (we stayed in the very spacious Eagle's Nest before), but it was immaculate... More

We stayed in the carriage house which is down the drive from the main house. It is a beautifully restored carriage house and is pet friendly. The grounds are well kept with wooded walking trails. The rooms are comfortably furnished with hot tubs and fireplaces. A wonderful made to order breakfast is included.

We returned to this Inn last week after a fabulous stay last spring. We were so disappointed in this recent stay. We had a different room than last time and I don't know if it's an overall issue or if last time's room was one of the best and this time's room was one of the worst. This room was... More

We are sorry that this guest was disappointed in their recent stay and we would like to respond to his comments. All our Platinum Level rooms have the same amenities and living area but differ slightly. We assigned this guest to one of our rooms that afforded a bit more privacy and outside play space with their pet. The quality... More

This historic home is nestled among the woods. A path through the woods takes you to a serene lake. There are rowboats and kayaks available as well as adirondack chairs to relax. No noise other than nature! Peaceful! Breakfast was delicious and the room is well equipped with sleep number bed,fireplace,balcony,and two jacuzzi tubs. Lovely bed and breakfast!

Excellent place to stay.Really quiet, lovely pool, beautiful old building. Most of the ground floor is open for use by the guests with a library, pool room, table tennis, table top football, board games. You also have access to the lake and row boats and kayaks. Breakfast is great (delicious blueberry pancakes) and there is bread and filling for sandwiches... More

After looking at this establishment over a long period of time, I finally decided to go for it. I have to say that I was disappointed. The Inn itself is old and in okay condition. The pictures are deceiving as the "lake" is a little distance from the property. Food is available throughout the day and breakfasts were just okay.... More

We are sorry this guest was disappointed with his breakfast and visit. The lake is about a 2 1/2 minute walk on a picturesque path through our surrounding forest. His comment about a marketing campaign remains a mystery to us. His disappointment with the Catskill region was surprising considering the Catskill Region remains one of the most desirable vacation areas... More

The Inn at Lake Joseph is one of a kind. It's a quick trip from NYC but feels like a different planet. So relaxing! There are hammocks all over the grounds, bikes you can take at your pleasure, and a cute pool with an arbor and a great view. We visited with another couple and our babies and booked the... More
