My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday and booked a room at The Inn at Lake Joseph for the weekend. From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with the place. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The main house was very cozy and authentic feeling.
We had the King Fisher room which has a King size bed, a jacuzzi tub, a fireplace and a balcony. The room was very well kept and very homey. We did not hear any other people through the walls.
Unfortunately, it rained all day Saturday, but that didn't really dampen our weekend. We found a few nice restaurants out in town, despite all of the complaints that I had seen on this site. Buona Fortuna and The Front Porch both have absolutely delicious food. Breakfast at the Inn was great. My boyfriend and I are both very picky eaters but we cleaned our plates on both days! We already miss it!
The lake is not directly out the back door, but it isn't as far as some have made it sound. It is only about a two to three minute walk.
Considering that breakfast is included, snacks, drinks, activities, and equipment are provided, we definitely did not find this to be overpriced.
I would definitely recommend this Inn and we will definitely be going back.
- 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
