... br> We had two close encounters with live deer today. The first was a small doe that was struck in the head by a semi trailer ahead of us. It was still standing but was leaking fluid out its mouth so I imagine it cal lapsed shortly after we passed. The second encounter was with a doe standing on the side of the road, but it took off into the bush.
There were lots of animal sitings such as black ...
We had a hot trip up the Hudson today. Not a whole lot to see but a smooth trip. Paul drove Kathy's car and stopped along the way to get some pictures of us passing by. Paul found us a low key marina right on the river. Owner and staff were very helpful and welcoming. We did see The replica of Henry Hudson's Half Moon sailing ship as we traveled up the ...
Left Croton on Hudson at 10:00 AM. Kathy, Kevin and Cheryl went up the river while Paul took Kathy's car and drove to Kingston. On the river we passed some beautiful homes and landscapes.

It was a wonderful trip filled with a lot of excitement, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Emerson Mount Tremper
My only issue with the Emerson is the price. Given the other options for lodging in the Catskills, this definitely stands out above the rest, but for the money I expected more.
2 girlfriends and I stayed in a Junior Suite at the Lodge at Emerson Place for 2 nights on October 13, 2006. We loved the place! Our suite was clean, comfortable and surprisingly large. Upstairs, a large bedroom with 2 queen beds and a bathroom with oversized shower and separate jet tub. An abundance of closet, dresser and storage space. Cable tv. Off the upstairs bedroom, a balcony that faces the Esopus Creek in the distance. Downstairs, a living room with leather recliner, pull out queen sofa bed, table and 3 chairs, coffee table, end tables, plenty of overhead and table lighting, a second cable television and again more closet and drawer space for storage. Around the corner from the staircase, a wet bar with coffee maker and mini bar/fridge. Great towels, bathrobes, slippers, bath products, fruit/wine basket - so many extras.
We stayed with our two children in a two-bedroom suite, which was really lovely. The spa is very nice, too. The location is beautiful - right on the stream, and the landscaping is beautiful. The morning buffet was also really nice (cold buffet is free, but you can pay extra for the full hot menu). The main drawback of the place was the proximity to the highway - not much you can do about that. The serenity was constantly interrupted by a super loud truck or group of motorcycles. By the way a new building is under construction - more suites and a conference center. Looks like it is almost done and will be very nice. But his brings me to the biggest complaint. No indoor pool! There are almost no hotels in the area with an indoor pool (closest is Hanah resort in Margaretville). This place would be such a great weekend getaway with the family for fall/winter/spring if only they were including a nice, heated indoor pool in their expansion plans. Inexplicable. We would definitely include this place on our list of great last-minute weekend getaways if they had an indoor pool.
We stayed here last weekend for my brothers wedding. The rooms were very large and very clean. The setting was breathtaking. I even brought my puppy and the staff all loved her and even offered to walk her for me. I highly, highly recommend this place!!! I will stay here again without a doubt!
The Woolrich meets Chanel, cashmere meets wool: the understated, tasteful luxury of the Lodge at Emerson Place(Catskill Corners) impressed us so much the first time we stayed that we have returned many times. Our golden retrievers are always thrilled with the river walk as well as the lavish attention they receive from the housekeeping staff. However, now that the lodge is officially associated with Emerson Place, it is less likely to be nice and offer a special rate which means we go less often than we'd like. The general store sells Diptique candles and penny candy;Woodstock is nearby with its slew of dining options and the Lodge offers three choices for eating varying from the kid-friendly Spotted Dog to afternoon tea across the road at Emerson. This is such an inviting place!
What a wonderful lodge. My husband and I stayed at The Lodge for just one night but wished we could have stayed a week. We stayed in their "deluxe" room at the end of lodge and absolutely loved it. The amenities were awesome. I can't begin to describe all the special touches they had. The atmosphere (inside and out) made us feel relaxed, comfey and not wanting for anything. Some of the amenities included: remote control air conditioner/fan; specialty bath & body products; his & hers robes; fruit basket & wine in room; assortment of gourmet coffee & teas; king bed w/down comforter; excellent service at the front desk, etc. We don't however recommend going to the "Kaleidostore" next door to see the world biggest Kaleidoscope movie -- What a rip off -- for $15.00 you get a 15 minute movie that doesn't even look like a kaleidoscope and you'll be completely bored after 2 minutes. All I can say is my husband and I had a wonderful time and we are definitely going back first chance we get.
My family enjoyed a wonderful little 3-day holiday last summer at the Lodge, sampling the delicious food of both great restaurants on the site as well as the tubing, hiking at North South Park and strolling around nearby Woodstock. We stayed in the "Tower Suite" which included a huge lower room with an even huger bath with jacuzzi, and an upstairs room with a little terrace, minibar, pull-out sofa & its own TV -- a great retreat for our 15-year-old to hang! We are already planning a winter getaway for some skiing later this year and are definitely thinking of staying at the Lodge again. By the way, their complimentary breakfast is fabulous, too!
