Situated on a former dairy farm within the 600-square-mile Catskill Forest Preserve, Emerson Resort & Spa (named for the famous American poet who was inspired by the region’s natural beauty) houses sumptuous suites, a remarkable spa, and even a quirky sideshow: the world’s largest kaleidoscope. The Emerson Resort offers a variety of accommodation, including the adults-only inn, where couples can enjoy private decks, gas fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and a 24-bottle in-room wine selection, and the family-friendly lodge, where visitors stay in traditional Adirondack-style rooms and suites.
