Emerson Resort and Spa features 2 separate lodging options: The Inn and The Lodge. The Lodge option features a variety of mountain theme rooms, all designed with charming log-cabin, rustic touches. The Inn rooms feature more of a classic, artsy theme. It is up to you to decide which theme appeals more to you. The Inn rooms are a bit more expensive and also do not allow guests under age 16. They are more geared towards guests looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation. The property itself is beautiful: well maintained, nicely landscaped (featuring a Koi pond and waterfalls), and quiet. The hallways of the Emerson are lined with the works of local artists. You will also find relaxing Buddha style statues throughout the property, both inside and outside. Mike booked us a luxury suite in The Lodge. Although The Lodge is not connected to the main Inn building, it is only located a short walk away. The Catamount Restaurant is conveniently located between both lodging options. There is a scenic outdoor patio at The Catamount, featuring amazing views of the creek. Dinner each night at The Catamount was convenient, cozy, and delicious!
I was really impressed with our luxury suite at The Lodge. The entire place was decked out in a cute rustic mountain theme. Even the fireplace and lamps featured mountain decor. This setting fit in perfectly with the rustic feeling of the Catskills region. Our rental featured a 2 story layout with a King bed in the loft. Two bathrooms, including one with an enormous whirlpool tub added a bit of luxury to the trip. The gas fireplace was ideal for the beginning of the brisk fall season. Nights were spent relaxing with a glass of wine in front of the roaring fireplace. The absolute highlight of our rental was the outdoor deck, featuring amazing views of Esopus Creek. In my opinion, The Lodge rooms have better views of the creek than the Inn rooms. Relaxing on the deck taking in the magnificent views was the best part of our trip! Every morning we enjoyed our cup of coffee, while taking in the incredible scenery. And, we really appreciated the quiet atmosphere: no noisy traffic here like some other resorts.
Prices at The Lodge vary depending on the size of room you choose to book. Rooms range in price from $209 for the deluxe room to $329 for the family suite. Check the Emerson website for weekday deals and special rates and packages throughout the year. The luxury suite we stayed in at The Lodge was a great deal at only $269, especially with all the special amenities listed above. The Inn is a bit more expensive,with rates ranging from $299 to $399 per night. All Inn rooms include a Swiss shower and air jetted tub for 2.
I can't wait for my next stay at Emerson Resort and Spa. Emerson is your best bet for a relaxing, affordable getaway to the Catskills. The combination of rustic charm and artistic touches gives the property a heads up over other resorts in the area. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or just a city escape, you are bound to find it at the Emerson. Fall is the perfect time to visit and take advantage of the beautiful foliage of the upstate NY area. We will definitely be planning a return visit in the near future.
