My husband and I recently visited the Inn at Lake Joseph with friends. It was not our first visit and many of the guests are repeat customers. That is a testament to the unique experience the Inn offers vacationers. They provide solid amenities - Jacuzzis, Direct TV, complimentary kayaks and canoes and all day snacks. The grounds are well maintained...

We loved this unique bed and breakfast in the Catskill Mountains! Matt was especially helpful with our questions and needs. We stayed in the main building in the Meadowlark room. It was supposed to be one of the smaller rooms, but it was very comfortable and had beautiful windows. The bathroom was also spacious and had a jacuzzi tub. A...

We just spent 3 days at the Inn at Lake Joseph. Overall, we had a delightful time. The Inn is a reasonable drive from New York City (depending on traffic), but the drive itself was not too long as to dissuade us from going. We enjoy hiking and kayaking and both are available at the Inn. The Inn is situated...

We would like to thank these guests for their positive review. Just a minor clarification: the walk to the lake is about 5 minutes by way of a picturesque path through the wood. There's also a roadway, which is about a 10 minute walk--and some of our guests choose to drive there with their fishing equipment and gear.

We just got back from our 4th stay at the Inn At Lake Joseph, and I am ready to go back already!!! Matt and Michele were so amazing and accommodating in every-way possible. We stayed in the Kingfisher (as we do every time we visit). The room is very clean and spacious. The Inn has just about every type of...

This is not a typical b&b. This feels more like you are staying at a resort. There is a pool, take a short walk and you are at the lake, there are complimentary kayaks, canoes and row boats. The lake is clean. No power boats on it. The main building has a pool table, ping pong, books and games. There...

We can't say enough nice things about the Inn at lake Joseph and the management. We were in the Tudor in the carriage house and it was perfect for us and our small dog. We were on the 2nd floor and had a wonderful king size bed, a FP, small kitchenette and a roomy bathroom. Every thing, though not new,...

We stayed at the Inn in June 2016. Although the Inn has a lot of potential, we were extremely disappointed with our experience and do not believe that the rooms are worth the high price. We provided our honest feedback to the staff and want to share with potential visitors so that they are well-informed before making a decision to...

We are sorry that this couple’s stay at the Inn didn’t meet their expectations. That being said, we must respond to some of the criticisms that this couple made. Our Inn was originally a Victorian country home for a Brooklyn businessman and his family, and our guests enter the front hall/foyer of the Main Lodge to check in. They pick...

I stayed here for two nights. The weather was excellent so there was a lot to do. There is a 3 minute walk to the lake where there are kayaks and row boats and also lounge chairs for reading. There is also a hiking trail. I agree with all the favorable reviews. I was nice to wake up on a...

We went to the Inn for our 2 year anniversary weekend along with our dog. Upon arrival, you receive a tour of the main house along with information regarding your stay. The main house has many board games, books, etc. to keep you busy. The bedroom (we stayed in Dogwood) was nicely appointed and had a two person whirlpool bath...

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
