It seems that the renovations to the beloved Emerson Resort & Spa in Mount Tremper are almost finished, according to a recent story in the NY Daily News. While the Ulster County inn/spa/restaurant/retail space/huge kaleidoscope is transforming into classy, modern space with an eye toward natural, warm tones and huge windows to capitalize on its Esopus Creek setting, you can still stay for weekend (or better yet, mid-week, when the rates are lower), shop at the stores, check out the world’s largest kaleidoscope, or have a meal at the completely gutted and renovated Woodnotes Grille. Take time to explore the surrounding area, too, suggested the Daily News piece. Solid advice.
