As a family of seven adults and a dog, this inn turned out to be an outstanding setting for an intimate outdoors style weekend get together. With ALL the comforts of a first class resort, we went boating and fishing on the beautiful, peaceful Lake Joseph....with our dog, of course. We biked, hiked, played badminton, swam in the pool, and played board games and billiards. We ended our days around 1:00am at the fire pit, telling stories and roasting marshmallows.( And yes, even the marshmallows and sticks were provided.)
The inn was packed, but we felt like we were one of the few guests. The guests we did see were friendly and their dogs were well trained/supervised. The staff was wonderful, each and every one of them- what a fine spirited group. We could always get what we wanted, right down to an impromptu birthday celebration.
Three more things: . 1, the rooms are really nice and well equipped, 2. the food is homemade and breakfasts are made to order, 3. snacks and beverages are always available.
I don't know where else you'd find such a wonderful pet friendly get away two hours from NYC
- 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
