My husband & I were honoring our 50th year of marriage! The host/hostess sent champagne (non alcoholic) and a beautiful rose to our room. We checked out all of the available rooms to compare with ours and they are all lovely and newly renovated. Everything that this family advertised is very true. We especially loved the breakfast's which you could... More

I stayed at the Inn at Lake Joseph for a couple of nights with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. The room was fantastic, well kept and extremely comfortable. They use sleep number beds, soft luxurious linens, and the room had a small private outside deck, a fireplace, and a jacuzzi. The breakfasts (included) were delicious made-to-order omelettes, with other... More

We’re very sorry that these guests’ experience wasn’t as great as it should have been. We work very hard to give our guests a relaxing, fulfilling time here at the Inn, and it’s extremely frustrating for us when something happens that interrupts that experience. We didn’t respond as quickly as we should have, and we apologize for that. We have... More

Beautiful lake and property. The hosts, Ivan and Ru along with Matt, could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. My husband spent hours fishing at the lake and caught quite a few good size Bass.

We visited the Inn over the Mother's Day weekend, and I couldn't have wished for a better treat. Comfortable rooms, quality toiletries, delicious breakfast, and very generous (and free!) snacks made me wish we could stay much longer than just the weekend. Add to that beautiful trails, good restaurants in the vicinity and the graciousness of Ivan and Ra as... More

I've lost count on the number of times we've been here. We keep coming back because Lake Joseph is such a wonderful nature retreat. So easy to unwind from the stresses of life. Late September early October is our favorite time of year to visit because of the weather...warm in the daytime and cooler at night. This year our visit... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn, with working fireplaces, whirlpool baths and private sundecks, is located in Upstate New York on a 250-acre private lake. Like resort lodging, Inn at Lake Joseph provides a variety of summer and winter recreational facilities, including access to a health and fitness spa. But unlike larger hotels, with just 18 guestrooms, a luxurious, yet informal, casual country retreat that assures guests a relaxing, private, rustic mountain lake environment awaits. Very much like the Berkshires, White Mountains, Adirondacks and Poconos, the Catskills surrounding the Inn offer spectacular scenes of lakes and rivers, as well as hiking trails with views of majestic peaks and isolated waterfalls. However, unlike these other regions, The Inn is no more than 2 hours from New York City. ... more   less
