Beautiful lake and property. The hosts, Ivan and Ru along with Matt, could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. My husband spent hours fishing at the lake and caught quite a few good size Bass. We also had the unexpected pleasure of meeting the great grandson of the original owner of this beautiful manor house and was fascinated by...

We visited the Inn over the Mother's Day weekend, and I couldn't have wished for a better treat. Comfortable rooms, quality toiletries, delicious breakfast, and very generous (and free!) snacks made me wish we could stay much longer than just the weekend. Add to that beautiful trails, good restaurants in the vicinity and the graciousness of Ivan and Ra as...

We have stayed at the Inn 3 years in a row now while visiting our son at a nearby camp (Stagedoor Manor). Each time we have stayed in a different room. The rooms are all different and all are great, the staff is terrific and the food is wonderful. We have not taken advantage of all the activities available because...

I've lost count on the number of times we've been here. We keep coming back because Lake Joseph is such a wonderful nature retreat. So easy to unwind from the stresses of life. Late September early October is our favorite time of year to visit because of the weather...warm in the daytime and cooler at night. This year our visit...

If peace and quiet is what you desire, the Inn is the place to be. You will feel like you've traveled to the home of your great Aunt and Uncle, and all the staff are your cousins. This charming Inn run by Rue and Ivan is absolutely lovely. They will serve a hot breakfast until 10:30 daily or a continental...

Myself and my best friend spent a few days at this lovely bed and breakfast. I must admit it was a little older than I expected- but everything about the stay was great!

This is an Inn to the nth degree. It is gorgeously situated and landscaped. The inn itself is an historic mansion dating back to 1890. The common rooms are filled with fascinating antiques and modern things to do, not to mention a myriad of old photographs, prints, paintings and other art crowding the walls. I really liked that it was...

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
