The inn and surrounding grounds are very rundown which isn't apparent in their website video. Only after we made our no cancel reservation did we receive a disclaimer in the confirmation that the lake level is down.The lake is at least 12 feet down so there is no quaint swimming area and it does not look like the pristine atmospheric lake shown on the website video - instead there's muck and thousands of exposed tree stumps. So the lake is not an amenity. The inn is very rundown - we sat at breakfast with a couple who said the inn hadn't changed in 5 years since their last visit and they left early, forfeiting a night for a free future credit! The deli snacks were nice and the pool was a plus but staying there was not worth the big bucks that they charge.
- 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
