Stayed two nights in September, 2009. Despite incredibly expensive rates, our accommodations included a broken heating system (requiring two repairs to fix) and the added bonus of ants and mice scurrying around the kitchen. The owners and staff are not very customer service oriented. Find another place to stay if you are visiting this area.

My husband and I stayed here this weekend and we both though that this was one of our favorite places to visit. The Inn is beautifully decorated with turn-of-the-century style furniture and very romantic art that is tastefully arranged throughout the place. We stayed in the Skylark room, complete with a gas fireplace (perfect for those who have no idea...

This year we added a family member (a puppy) that has majorly changed our travel habits. We used to just take off and fly to wherever our schedules and pocket book permitted. Now we need to take into consideration whether our Rascal will be allowed. This was a great get away for all of us - Rascal had the run...

My partner and I stayed at the Inn at Lake St. Joseph to getaway from NYC and take in the fall foliage. We were also looking for a place that could accommodate our dog. The Inn exceeded our expectations. The grounds were spectacular, the amenities (trails, free use of rowboats) billiard room, and continual supply of food was really unexpected....

We drove up from NYC to see the fall foliage around the Catskills. We chose to stay at the Inn at Lake Joseph because it 1. Allowed dogs, and 2.

My wife and I have been staying at the Inn at Lake Joseph since 1984 shortly after it opened. At that time only the Lodge was available. We have watched the Inn grow by adding the Carriage House and the Cottage. Each building was completed with minimal impact on the surrounding woods and tastefully appointed. We have always had wonderful...

We went to the Inn for our 20th anniversary for a long weekend. We loved our room. It had a whirlpool bath. There was a gas fireplace that went on at the flick of a switch. There were lounging chairs. We could use the Sirius channels on the TV for an endless selection of music. We had a little balcony...

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
