This pet-friendly inn was the perfect escape and just a few hours away from most points in NY. The property is gorgeous and great for hiking or just hanging out in a chair swing or hammock. There are row boats to explore the lake and kayaks as well. Our room was big enough for the two of us and two...

The Inn at Lake Joseph is set amongst the trees and is absolutely stunning at this time of year (October). Our room was very comfy and clean with super soft sheets! The lake is beautiful and we were easily able to follow the trail maps provided to us by the staff. Breakfast was delicious- the tables are communal so do...

I traveled to this hotel for the weekend with my partner and really enjoyed it. The innkeeper and staff are friendly and welcoming without ever being obtrusive, and they responded quickly to any requests. The inn was charming with beautiful grounds, complete with hiking paths, a lake where you could take out boats, a swimming pool, even a tennis court...

This was our third stay in five years at Inn at Lake Joseph, so we’re obviously fans. We had previously stayed in the Carriage House and this time we were in the Lodge itself. All the rooms have their own individual character and are furnished and decorated appropriately and in great detail. Ours featured wonderfully quirky bedroom/alcove-like architecture, complete with...

My husband and I have been together two years (almost) and were taking our first vacation; we have a dog and she is a very special part of our little family so we did not want to leave her behind. We could not go far as we did not want to drive more than a few hours from NYC to...

We stayed at the Inn over Labor Day weekend and won't be going back. We'd read the TripAdvisor reviews and thought the positives, at least by sheer number, outdid the negatives. Not quite. Depending what you're after, it could be right for you, but for us (young couple, live in NYC, travel extensively, including to farmhouses and cabins), it wasn't...

The guest commented about being a young couple, living in NYC and accustomed to traveling extensively and appreciating antiques in classical-styled hotels. Although this guest desired our more expensive accommodations, the only room available at the time of the reservation was made was the Inn's least expensive basic accommodation. We believe she may have experienced extreme disappointment because it was...

This place has character and, on a beautiful day, I'm sure it would have been more pleasant given that there are some lovely trails through the woods and a small stretch of grass in front of the private lake where you can sit and relax. But it rained the weekend we were there, and the moisture in the air brought...

We thank the reviewer for her positive comments about the bed linens, their enjoyment of the game rooms, the food service and pointing out that the inn does have character and if it wasn’t for the poor weather they experienced, they would have enjoyed the lovely trails through the woods and the private lake environment where they would have relaxed....

My boyfriend and I just visited the Inn at Lake Joseph and I would have to say it was one of the most relaxing experiences I've ever had. We stayed in the Tudor room and for us it was perfect. There was a jacuzzi tub in the loft that was most enjoyable. The room was plenty big and very clean....

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
