Named by Fodor’s Travel as one of the 10 Best Fall Foliage Trips in the U.S.

The article read: “The 6,000 square miles in southeastern New York known as the Catskills are home to six major river systems, thirty-five mountain peaks over 3,500 feet, and the famed Woodstock festival. A year-round destination, the Catskills are at their most vibrant in the fall when yellows, oranges, and reds electrify the thickly wooded hillsides. Locals and visitors alike savor the fall harvest, when many of the region’s historic villages host festivals and craft fairs alongside the bountiful farmers’ markets and pick-your-own orchards.

When to Go: The last two weeks in September through mid- to late-October are prime time for fall foliage in the Catskills.

Where to Stay: The Catskills are fabled for their charming B&Bs. For more of a retreat experience, head to the Inn at Lake Joseph, a sixteen-room country resort located on a 250-acre private lake.”

Catskill Lakes!

Whether you choose to take a hike along our beautiful trails or a scenic drive, you’ll find new views at every turn. The hills and mountains provide a varied landscape with different shading and planes of colorful leaves, all reflecting on beautiful Catskill lakes. Of all the lakes, our private Lake Joseph offers the perfect sheltered spots to enjoy the picturesque scenery! The Inn at Lake Joseph is a short drive from the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway. There you’ll be able to follow the Delaware River from Barryville through Narrowsburg and loop back to the Inn. Or, go off-road to explore one of the most colorful fall foliage displays in the Northeast by foot or bike along our trails.
