Just returned from our second stay at the Inn in two years. My son and our dog were along for the trip, as we were visiting my daughter at Stagedoor Manor, a theater camp 30 miles away. The Inn is charming and rustic, with many outdoor activities that can take the edge off of 8 hours spent at a wonderful theater camp (if you know what I mean.) No drama, just peace and quiet, lots of trails to hike, bikes to ride, trips around the lake in the kayak. Breakfasts are generous and very good - the innkeepers keep a stocked pantry for lunch and snacks all day, and the evening campfire with s'mores is a hospitable touch.
If you like the idea of camping, but can't imagine "roughing it" without deluxe bathroom amenities or luxurious sheets, this is the Inn for you!
Also: my eighteen year old son commented that "everyone he meets, smiles." A good time was had by all.
- 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
