We loved this place and so did our dogs. The entire property is designed for relaxation, calm and for guests to be as active (or inactive) as they'd like. The lake is gorgeous and has a section of enclosed beach so our dogs could swim and sun bathe. The Inn is run by a staff of warm, accommodating professionals who... More

My fiancé and I made an impromptu reservation last Saturday, we spoke to Ivan there and he booked us. We were literally packing for the nearly 2 hour car ride to head there from NYC when we got a call back from Ivan saying that the suite we just booked not 15min ago was actually not available and the Inn...

Last week my boyfriend took me for a surprise birthday trip to the Inn. Let me just say that it was pure PARADISE. The Inn it self was so lovely. We stayed in the Cardinal room which in itself set the bar way high. It had a jacuzzi in the room and a deck with table and chairs, which allowed... More

We had a wonderful 3 day, 2 night stay at the Inn at Lake Joseph. It was my first time staying at a B&B or Inn and it has changed my way of traveling. I chose it because it was dog friendly and will return for many other reasons. The room I stayed in was "Hemlock" which is a short... More

My husband and I recently visited the Inn at Lake Joseph with friends. It was not our first visit and many of the guests are repeat customers. That is a testament to the unique experience the Inn offers vacationers. They provide solid amenities - Jacuzzis, Direct TV, complimentary kayaks and canoes and all day snacks. The grounds are well maintained... More

We loved this unique bed and breakfast in the Catskill Mountains! Matt was especially helpful with our questions and needs. We stayed in the main building in the Meadowlark room. It was supposed to be one of the smaller rooms, but it was very comfortable and had beautiful windows. The bathroom was also spacious and had a jacuzzi tub. A... More

We just spent 3 days at the Inn at Lake Joseph. Overall, we had a delightful time. The Inn is a reasonable drive from New York City (depending on traffic), but the drive itself was not too long as to dissuade us from going. We enjoy hiking and kayaking and both are available at the Inn. The Inn is situated... More

We would like to thank these guests for their positive review. Just a minor clarification: the walk to the lake is about 5 minutes by way of a picturesque path through the wood. There's also a roadway, which is about a 10 minute walk--and some of our guests choose to drive there with their fishing equipment and gear. More

We just got back from our 4th stay at the Inn At Lake Joseph, and I am ready to go back already!!! Matt and Michele were so amazing and accommodating in every-way possible.

This is not a typical b&b. This feels more like you are staying at a resort. There is a pool, take a short walk and you are at the lake, there are complimentary kayaks, canoes and row boats. The lake is clean. No power boats on it. The main building has a pool table, ping pong, books and games. There... 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
