Thirty-five years ago we created the Inn At Lake Joseph as our romantic getaway from New York City.

Why not let this fun-loving escape be your playground?

Like resort lodging, the Inn will provide you with a variety of summer and winter recreational facilities, including our nearby full-service health and fitness spa. But unlike larger Catskill and Pocono resorts, our boutique Inn with just 17 guestrooms is where you will experience our informal, casual, upscale bed and breakfast-style  country retreat that will assure you a relaxing, romantic, secluded getaway in a rustic, luxurious mountain lake environment.

Oh Yes!  Your pet is welcome.  Many of our guestrooms are indeed pet-friendly.

Just 2 Hours from N.Y.C.

Very much like the Berkshires, Adirondacks, and Poconos, the Catskill Mountains surrounding the Inn will offer you breathtaking views and idyllic natural scenery.  However, unlike these other regions, the Inn and the Catskills are no more than 2 hours from New York City.

We visited the Inn in July and were very pleased. The room was large and nicely decorated. The grounds were beautiful and the staff warm and helpful. They include breakfast but so much more. There is a fully stocked ‘pantry’ area where you can find something to eat and drink all day. My only regret was that we did not have enough time to enjoy everything they offer. When we are in the area again, we would definitely stay there.

Wonderful Stay, July 2018

This was our 2nd time staying here in as many years and I can’t say enough about the property or the staff. The room was clean and extremely comfortable. The pool is spotless and the activities, row boats, kayaks, bicycles all just waiting to be used. If you like to fish but can’t bring a rod with you, do as I did and go to Walmart and buy a cheap rig because the lake is loaded with bass that can’t wait to jump on your lure (watermelon seed finesse worm with a 1/0 worm hook). The breakfast served every morning is as good as you’ll find in any Monticello restaurant and you can enjoy the company of your fellow guests. Make sure you visit the Forestburgh Playhouse less 10 minutes away for an incredible production of a Broadway show that is so good you’ll think you’re in Manhattan.

2nd Time and Still a Charmer, July 2018

This is a jewel of a place with comfortable rooms, nice people and excellent breakfasts. They even have a 24/7 open pantry for snacks, drinks and cold cuts. The grounds are beautiful and available activities are many. Easy walk to a pristine lake. Bring your fishing rod. Ivan, the owner, tells good stories, so be sure to meet him. Loved it.

Wonderful place to stay, June 2018

Nice place, wish we had more time! Breakfast was fantastic, was even upgraded to a better room to fit our needs. They even catered to our vegetarian needs. Was able to cook my wife a beautiful dinner, had a great set up and dishes, pots and pans. Asked for chocolates and flowers to be there when we arrived! And they had it set up!! Great service! We needed the break from our reality! Thank You!

Beautiful, July 2018

My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend here to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The Inn at Lake Joseph exceeded every expectation!! The room was spectacular. Although a bit cold in April we took out the kayaks on the beautiful lake. We also enjoyed a hike in their well marked trails. I would love to return with my family for a getaway.

Perfect Getaway, June 2018

My husband and I loved our stay at Lake Joseph. Every staff member was so accommodating and pleasant. The food is plentiful and good. There are trails to hike and a lovely lake to kayak. We got to feed a deer in the rear yard of the Inn. It was magical.

Wonderful Stay!, October 2017

The room was great, the staff friendly,and the location, the trails, the lake. the boats, the pool, pool table, games so much to do, did not get to do it all in 3 days. It was just the relaxed weekend I needed. Thanks to everyone at the inn, great time. Ivan and his family have thought of everything.

Great Trip, October 2017

My husband and I just returned from The Inn at Lake Joseph in the Catskills Mountains. Just wonderful. Rustic, and beautiful. Delicious breakfast daily (made to order), gorgeous property, from bike lane safe, hiking trail, hammocks, fire pit, beautiful lake for lounging, canoeing, boating. So quiet, relaxing and totally ideal for letting go. Went to visit old stomping grounds from sixty years ago…unfortunately, not there anymore. Did visit Woodstock Museum in Bethel, which is a must. So wonderful to step back in time. All in all, wonderful getaway.

Little getaway and walk down memory lane, October 2017
