... to see how close all the other tall buildings are around it and to think that those really tall buildings fell right there. Kind of surreal. Our last stop was Central Park and even though we could only see a little bit it was fun to walk up 5th Ave.
All in all a long and tiring day but glad we did it. We didn't get a ride in a New York Cab but the subway was fun.
... that goes under the Hudson River. All in all it was a great day but very tiring.
We are thinking of taking the train in on Saturday to maybe see some things we didn't get to and experience riding a subway. The train station is about 12 miles from the park and takes us right to Grand Central Station. We were told it is a beautiful ride that goes right down the Hudson River.

... and mix up. First of all, the drive through the mountains to get there was beautiful, past mountain creeks and over bridges and around windy turns and up steep hills with beautiful views of the Catskill Mountains. And there it was in front of me, and I guess if you are not a Pathworker this blog won't mean that much to you, but my Pathwork friends will get it. This is where it all began! Actually, the history of the place goes back even before Pathwork when it ...

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!
