To celebrate my 40th, I surprised my husband with a 2 night getaway. The Emerson's mid-week rates made it a splurge that didn't break the bank. Our room at the inn, was overly large, spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was as well. We enjoyed both the oversized Swiss shower and the jacuzzi style tub. There was a small balcony with soothing views of the Esopus Creek and the mountains as the backdrop. Since we stayed mid week, it was exceptional quiet and we enjoyed our privacy.
We indulged in a couples massage. The spa was much larger than I had anticipated and it would appear that many of the clients come from the surrounding area to use the spa services. We were happy with the service we received. Overall, the few staff members that we did interact with were all friendly and helpful. When we called down for a few extras bottles of water, they were brought right up to us.
We had dinner the 1st night at the Catamount. It was an average meal in an average place. The 2nd night we ventured 15 minutes north and enjoyed an exceptional meal at the Peekamoose Tap Room & Restaurant. It was easily one of our top 5 dining experiences ever, and it's in Big Indian, NY of all places!
If you were looking for a bit more of a great local adventure, I think The Emerson's location lends itself to a great many seasonal outdoor activities to choose from.
We definitely enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again.
