My husband and myself vacationed at The Inn At Lake Joseph, along with our two dogs. I'm not sure who enjoyed the trip more, us humans or our dogs. The grounds are just beautiful. The inn keeper Ivan, is a warm gracious, helpful host. The breakfast were delicious. It was great to have 24 hour use of the kitchen to...

My husband and I were hiking in the mountains near Roscoe. Perhaps neither of us realized how old we had gotten. We didn't think we would make it back to our home base in New Jersey without falling asleep at the wheel, so we looked up bed and breakfasts near Roscoe. We were intrigued by the Inn at Lake Joseph,...

We thank this guest for sharing his positive experience as our guest. We have just one minor correction. The distance to our lake is about 600 feet and takes between 3 and 4 minutes via a designated path through our forest. Not 10 minutes. Because his visit was in February, during our peak snow season, we believe he may have...

I stayed at the Inn at Lake Joseph for a couple of nights with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. The room was fantastic, well kept and extremely comfortable. They use sleep number beds, soft luxurious linens, and the room had a small private outside deck, a fireplace, and a jacuzzi. The breakfasts (included) were delicious made-to-order omelettes, with other...

We’re very sorry that these guests’ experience wasn’t as great as it should have been. We work very hard to give our guests a relaxing, fulfilling time here at the Inn, and it’s extremely frustrating for us when something happens that interrupts that experience.

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
