We enjoyed our stay at the Emerson. Here's our review:
The Room: stayed in the Royal Suite. Lovely room with a 4 poster king bed, large sitting area, beautiful fireplace and a huge bathroom containing a whirlpool built for two. Nice balcony facing the woods and stream which afforded the peace and quiet we crave (along with a fabulous fireworks display thanks to the many fireflies). Very unique furnishings in the room and the tangerines were a refreshing treat.
Dining: Enjoyed supper and breakfast at the Phoenix restaurant. Had very unique dishes which were very flavourful. Service and ambiance were excellent
The Spa: We both enjoyed the Indian Head Massage in the couples' suite. Locker rooms were well appointed with steamroom and sauna. Nice hot-tub outside. The pool is about 150 yards away from the main inn, though, and was closed the day of our arrival due to thunderstorms in the area
Other/Intangibles: Decor throughout the resort was very interesting. We liked the General Store and were amazed by the collection of handcrafted kaleidoscopes.
Summary: A peaceful gem hidden in the Catskills that we found relaxing and we hope to return.
