Something about us. We are a long married, 48 year old and turning 52 year old couple. I am fine with intimate bed and breakfasts, dear husband is more comfortable with anonoymous large resorts/hotels. That being said, I booked this property because it was pet friendly and the room I booked, the Cupola, seemed perfect. I must say, and if you read my profile, I object when things are not a "value". This does not mean cheap. I must say, the Inn at Lake Joseph, though considered expensive by some, was worth every penny, at least in the accomodation we were in (I realize people complain about the "Eagle's Nest"-not where I stayed). The room exceeded expectations, did not expect the kitchenette. The jacuzzi was great, as was the shower. The breakfast was also awesome. My chihuahua/pug puppy, who had suffered a broken leg prior to coming had no trouble with the stairs and enjoyed the grounds as well. Regarding it being a depressed area, having worked for years in a neighboring county, it is no different than staying in Manhattan and saying Harlem is a "depressed area". What snobs!!!

Overall, a great pet friendly property, lovely grounds, great room and wonderful breakfast. A little expensive, but worth every penny!!!

We are repeat guests at the INN and each time we stay we enjoy it more. We were in need of a peaceful and restful time and as usual we were able to have that at the INN. We stayed in the Eagle's Nest, oh my gawd, it was just magnificent.
The breakfast and coffee cake was excellent as well as the friendly efficient staff. Can't wait to return.

We spent only 2 nights there and that was more than enough. For the money that they charge this is a complete rip off, the bed was sunken in the middle so bad that we had to put blankets to help even out the bed, that still did not help.We also saw cockroaches running on the counters were the food is kept.We went down to the dock and almost fell in because it was broken on one side.Hot to cold water never consistent.The maid trew out our food that we had left in the room that was clearly positioned not to be in the trash.Inn keepers said if there is a problem please let us know before hand ,and so we did but they did absoulutely nothing! They also sent us a survey after we stayed there, but of course no response. Do not waste your money The Inn maybe 100 yrs old but the ameneties don't have to be.

The Inn at Lake Joseph is my favorite getaway destination. The estate is beautiful and serene. The hosts are more than gracious and accommodating. Everything about the experience makes you want to go back again and again.

Thanks Ivan and Ru! I'll be seeing you again soon.

A great Inn period. Perfect location and the drive on Rte 97 with such beautiful scenery and quaint freindly towns. Our cottage (the hemlock) was furnished in good taste and very clean. Breakfast @ the Inn delicious and was nice to mingle with other guests. Nice trails surround the property as well. Can't wait to go back (Our Labs are already in the Van).

We had such a delightful stay. Our accommodations were superb. The breakfasts were scrumptious, the room/suite was SO comfortable, and the location is so lovely. We'll definitely be back and are looking forward to it!

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
