Some attractions and activities, including the World’s Largest Kaleidoscope, may be temporarily closed. Please contact Reservations or the Front Desk for availability.
- See the World’s Largest Kaleidoscope. The Kaleidoshow is located in The Shops At Emerson and is complimentary for our guests. Build-your-own kaleidoscope in our Kaleidoscope class! $16 per kit. View our event calendar or ask the Front Desk for dates (children must be accompanied by an adult).
- Learn about native plant species, pollinating meadows, streamside ecology and flood mitigation on a stroll through our Brookside Wander path. This protected environment is a natural streamside buffer planted with native vegetation in order to stabilize stream banks and provide down-stream benefits. The Brookside Wander project is a partnership between the Emerson Resort & Spa and the Catskill Streams Buffer Initiative with funding from the Department of Environmental Protection and its partners, the Ulster County Soil & Water Conservation District and Cornell Cooperative Extension, to add another layer of protection within the Ashokan Watershed. Ask the Front Desk for a Brookside Wander guide or join us on a Guided Nature Walk to discover more.
- Take a bike out for a spin. Bikes are complimentary for our guests and available seasonally on a first come, first serve basis at the Front Desk starting at 10am. All bikes must be returned by sunset.
