I've been considering for years the possibility of staying at the Inn at Lake Joseph. Finally, for a special occasion, my wife and I decided to splurge, and we treated ourselves to a 2 night stay. We stayed in the "Sandpiper" room, and it was just as pictured on their website. The working, gas fireplace/stove added to the "down-home" feel of the room. The bathroom was a bit dated, and could use a bit of sprucing up though. Our hosts, Ivan and Rue, were very pleasant and amiable. A hearty breakfast each morning (served in the screened in porch area) consisted of made to order eggs, omelettes, french toast, or specialty pancakes and fresh pastries. The lake is a short walk away, and although it was quite low due to dam repair, we were still able to take out a rowboat and enjoy it. The heated, outdoor pool was a welcome relief on a warm September afternoon. The inn itself seems to also need a bit of sprucing up here and there, but overall, we had a very enjoyable stay.
- 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
