When I sat down to share my wonderful experience at the Inn at Lake Joseph, I was very surprised to read the last two reviews. Considering my experience there, I find some of their comments hard to believe. They had to put there toiletries on the floor? I was fortunate to have stayed at the Inn for a few days...

This was the most disappointing inn we have ever stayed at. Charged $305 per night, plus tax. Room and bathroom had bugs. Not even one shelf in the bathroom, had to keep all toiletries on the floor. Hair dryers kept in box on kitchen counter. First day, when I asked for skim milk for coffee, the woman took an almost-empty...

We are sorry this guest was disappointed with her experience at the Inn, and we would like to address her concerns. The room had a 5-foot vanity with a single sink, leaving 3 feet of counter space for toiletries. In addition, there is a three-shelf wall unit adjacent to the vanity that she may not have noticed. Occasionally, a bug...

We were up in the catskills doing a completely random (not to mention utterly grueling ) stint as Inn Keepers for the Shandalee Lake Inn. That is a whole novel in and of itself. I am a B&B fiend, and I am slowly getting my DH to see the light (before me he was a Holiday Inn guy through and...

Beautiful location, well maintained grounds, personable staff. Breakfast was wonderful. Room had all the amenities. Dog friendly with even a dedicated swimming area. We are looking at our calendars for an opportunity to return to the area.

If you want to stay at a wonderful quiet Inn then look no further. This place is beautiful, great rooms, and a fantastic country breakfast. They even have a pool with hammocks everywhere. Feel like an easy lunch or afternoon snack, even that they provide as self serve in the kitchen. Everything about this place is great, we will come...

Our stay at this Inn was very relaxing. The inn itself and the grounds are quiet, relaxing and very quaint. The service was good and the people are very friendly and helpful. the grounds and surrounding area are beautiful and far away from every thing. A very good place to get away from it all for peace and quiet.

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Joseph inn for our honeymoon and it was amazing! We felt like two different people there. The atmosphere was beautiful. The rooms were so relaxing. Great place for the scenic, out-door types. Everyone there makes you feel like family and the food was amazing. Not too many great restaurants in the area...

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
