There is no way to describe the tranquility my husband and myself felt here. It was our first night away from our 6 month old baby and it was everything we could have imagined and more. We were greeted by Michelle who was beyond pleasant and helpful and gave us a run down of the property. The Inn at Lake Joseph thinks of everything for a getaway like no other. Our room had so much charm and our hot tub was lovely! I saw some people complaining about the tub not getting hot. You are in the mountains so obviously you need to run the water for a bit. It was most definitely HOT. The stocked fridge was amazing as we got there at lunch time and helped ourselves to sandwiches. There was also fresh baked goods that my husband definitely enjoyed. We rode bikes, made smores at the fire pit, drank wine on the beautiful front lawn and took a row boat out in the lake. Apparently, it was almost at capacity but you wouldn't know it...it felt like our private camp. Additionally, the other guests we did speak with were all so interesting. In not even 24 hours everyone from the Inn managed to introduce themselves to us which was so lovely. I can't say enough good things about the Inn and we most definitely will be back. So relaxing that 24 hours felt like a week. Thank you!
- 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
