But only experienced goof-offs should attempt a destination like the Inn at Lake Joseph, where there is a dangerous amount to do because the innkeepers, Ivan and Rue Weinger, provide things like cross-country skis and snowshoes…
Be especially careful not to take any laptops, video games, iPhones, BlackBerrys, briefcases or co-workers…
Innkeepers agree that, especially if you’re one of those tightly wound urbanites, a weekend in the middle of nowhere can have a dramatic effect.
“It’s a visible change,” Ms. Dyer at the Inn at Lake Joseph said. “When people get here, they’re usually pretty stressed out. By Saturday morning, you are physically watching them relax.”
–Neil Genzlinger, New York Times article All Nothing, All the Time
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.
We had such a good time at the Inn, there is so much to do everyone was so friendly and helpful. The Inn is a well keep mansion with beautiful grounds and pool, the lake is excellent for fishing. We will be going back.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
We were in the US for 2 weeks at the end of May/beginning of June this summer.
Although we had amazing stays in NYC and Miami, this inn was probably the most memorable part of the trip.
The location gives you easy access to hiking trails, and a beautiful lake where we went kayaking (the inn has row boats and kayaks that you’re free to borrow). Out on the lake we saw turtles, which we thought was very cool. Several times we saw deer just outside the inn.
Other things we enjoyed were the jacuzzi in the room, the nice breakfast, and the super friendly staff. At breakfast we had nice conversations with the staff and the other guests. In the little kitchen area, there was always access to ice tea and coffee as well as bread, cheese, ham etc so that you could make sandwiches for lunch when needed.
The inn had also just opened up their pool which was a nice touch on the warm days.
Coming over from the UK, we enjoyed seeing this part of America. I recommend going into the nearby town of Monticello where we went to a cute diner on the main street with really nice American comfort food. On one of the days we also drove out to Bethel Woods to visit the Woodstock museum. If you’ve got time, I’d definitely go there.
Thanks to the innkeepers and the staff who made our stay really memorable. Matt was especially helpful and so nice!
If you’re coming in from JFK, this inn is about a 2-2,5 hour drive away and my partner thought it was an easy and pleasant drive (I was in the passenger seat…)
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.
Looking for a quite, charming getaway in the Catskills? Here ya go…..The Inn at Lake Joseph. Matt is the main host and he is attentive to all. We just went up for 2 nights for a little leaf-peeping and R&R and we got it!!! Secluded, calm and beautifully laid out property. THE BEST breakfast!! Old World Rustic! Enjoy!
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.
