Comfortable Catskill Charm

Surrounded by majestic mountains, tranquil forests and rushing waters, the Emerson Resort & Spa is nestled in the heart of Mother Nature’s playground. Seasonal colors, events and activities are plentiful from the moment you step into the Catskills. Hiking, biking, tubing, fishing, kayaking and skiing are just a few of the outdoor adventures located minutes away. The Emerson offers 26 spacious rooms in the contemporary style Inn and 27 rooms in the log cabin style Lodge. Woodnotes Grille serves “Catskill Creative Cooking” with food you know well prepared with fresh local ingredients and an innovative twist. The Spa at the Emerson is an oasis of pampering and rejuvenation, and the Country Stores are a shopper’s haven with a variety of gifts, fashions, housewares, toys and local food products. The Emerson is also home to the World’s Largest Kaleidoscope. Standing at more than 60-feet and featuring three, 38-foot mirrors, the Kaleidoshow is a mesmerizing experience of sight and sound. Emerson guests can also experience the Farm-To-Table movement at nearby farmer’s markets, taste the locally made brews, spirits, ciders and wines that are branding the Catskills as the premiere distributor of craft beverages, and view the talents of local artisans with works commissioned especially for the Emerson. Visitors from across the globe attend regional world class events including the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice, Woodstock Film Festival and Belleayre Snowboard Classic. Named for legendary poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, whose famous essay “Nature” was the incentive for the development of the Catskill Forest Preserve, our guests quickly understand what makes the Catskills and the Emerson so special.
