An excellent three-day weekend. Perfect. Exceptional service; Ivan and Ru have anticipated every conceivable need. After your first visit, you will want to return as soon as possible. The room was spacious and comfortable. Sitting in front of the fireplace was especially appealing. Our unit had a lovely deck with a Bar-B-Q. Our morning walks often resulted in meeting up...

This pet-friendly inn was the perfect escape and just a few hours away from most points in NY. The property is gorgeous and great for hiking or just hanging out in a chair swing or hammock. There are row boats to explore the lake and kayaks as well. Our room was big enough for the two of us and two...

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
