I am rating this "fair" because the rooms and facilities did not come close to matching the price. Our total bill was almost $450 a night while under $200 would have been more appropriate. Our room was small, dingy and dated. The decor was tacky, the toilet didn't flush and there were mouse droppings on the desk. The shower had two shower heads but barely enough room for one. The room did have a fireplace but only 2 small chairs so we couldn't snuggle up and enjoy the warmth.
We visited in January and our dog loved the open access to the outdoors. However, since dogs are not allowed in the main house, where many of the inn’s winter season-limited amenities are located (such as a pool table), our choices were limited to going outside in 8 degree weather or staying in our tiny uncomfortable room.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely and I am sure there is a lot to enjoy in the summer months. However, if you are looking for a relaxing or romantic getaway at any time outside of summer I do not recommend this inn.
- 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
