The inn has a great atmosphere with amazing, picturesque grounds. There are tons of activities available like kayaking, rowboats, bikes and tennis - and it also offers just as many ways to do absolutely nothing, if that's what you prefer. The rooms are quaint and comfortable (we stayed in the Carriage House), and include features like private bathroom, refrigerator and...

Our family REALLY enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Joseph Lake. We were wowed by the full service breakfast every morning. As well as the refrigerator stocked with lunch foods and snacks. We got to use the kayaks paddling around Joseph Lake. Enjoyed the hammocks conveniently placed throughout the grounds for reading, resting and relaxing. The staff were always...

My husband, myself and two dogs wanted a mini vacation for a few days near White Lake. We had planned on staying at the Lake Joseph Inn but after reading the newest negative reviews we decided to book a different hotel. Out of curiousity we decided to check out the Inn at Lake Joseph en route home! We were shocked...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Inn. We waited until the last minute to choose a vacation place and were very pleased with our choice. We stayed in the main house, Meadow Lark room with a view of the backyard. Food was excellent -- plenty of breakfast, and lots of options to make our own lunches. Although...

Now I know I am going against the grain by writing this review, and I have to tell you that I really, really wanted to give this place 5 stars, but I just could not do it. We stayed at the Inn the end of July beginning of August to see a Sting concert in Bethel which is just a...

We appreciate this guest’s helpful critique of our Inn and are grateful for her positive comments. We would also like to acknowledge some of her criticisms and correct others. First, because of a miscommunication between two staff members, this guest was indeed kept waiting for almost 20 minutes at check-in and of course, we apologized. The gas odor was a...

Where to start? This was intended as a romantic get-away for my husband and myself. I had looked at the beautiful pictures on the web-site, watched the video, read the glowing reviews (!) and even called the inn-keeper to discuss the room and the lake. It all sounded idyllic and worth the steep price that they charge. Our bill for...

These guests were truly unhappy with their stay, and I wish we could say that we had tried everything possible to make it better for them. However, we can’t say that because they never told us about any of their complaints. Many of them could have been alleviated by a little more communication. To be sure, Sullivan County is a...

This was the most disappointing inn we have ever stayed at. Charged $305 per night, plus tax. Room and bathroom had bugs. Not even one shelf in the bathroom, had to keep all toiletries on the floor.

We are sorry this guest was disappointed with her experience at the Inn, and we would like to address her concerns. The room had a 5-foot vanity with a single sink, leaving 3 feet of counter space for toiletries. In addition, there is a three-shelf wall unit adjacent to the vanity that she may not have noticed. Occasionally, a bug...

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
