When it comes to Valentine’s Day, love can be celebrated in so many ways. For some, that means purchasing flowers and chocolates for their partner. For others, it means putting that secret ingredient of love into an elaborate home-cooked meal. But the most romantic gesture of all is planning a weekend getaway with your lover. Traveling allows you and your partner to make new memories together, and provides the opportunity to test how well you work together on the road. Emerson Resort & Spa is where you should spend your Valentine’s Day getaway because we have plenty of New York date ideas on-site that are perfect for the holiday.

You’ve probably dreamed of getting a couples’ massage someday, and here’s your chance! Our award-winning Spa at Emerson Resort offers several different types of couples’ massages: whether you want a firm Swedish, deep tissue, or relaxation massage. For a little extra, add a Himalayan salt soak with your partner before you begin, and snack on a cheese platter and champagne to truly get in the blissed-out state before your massage even begins at our Catskills spa.  Try one of our Valentine specials – our Couples Luxury Spa Pedicure includes a Himalayan Salt Scrub, Eco-fin Booty and pressure point massage for legs and feet.  Our VIP Couples Massage includes a Himalayan Salt Soak and a Relaxation Massage with an Artisanal Cheeseplate in a private room for two.  Of course, both specials include chocolates and champagne!

Dine Out at Woodnotes Grille 

One of the most typical New York date ideas begins with going out to eat. When staying at Emerson Resort & Spa, you won’t even have to step outside into the cold to dine at the delicious Woodnotes Grille. Order housemade ricotta or blistered shishito peppers to start, and choose from dishes like the maple-brined pork chop, roasted duck leg, or the classic strip steak. For a sweet treat, split the caramel cheesecake, peanut butter torte, or if you’re both beer lovers, order the stout float. Enjoying the dining experience at Woodnotes together is one of the most romantic things to do in New York. 

Retreat to Our Spacious and Cozy Suites 

The best part about weekend getaways? The uninterrupted time together allows you to relish in your time away from professional and domestic responsibilities. Soak in the jetted tub, and cuddle up while watching a movie on the 32″ flat-screen televisions in the Inn rooms. Enjoy the Catskill-inspired decorations in the Lodge rooms for a true escape from your regular routine and surroundings, which is what a date night in New York is supposed to do. 

The Best Catskills NY Resorts 

To amp up the romance, order the evergreen Romance package, which includes a flower bouquet, a bottle of wine, chocolates, and bath bombs for your stay. Don’t forget, Emerson Resort & Spa is pet-friendly, so if you can’t bear to be away from your furry best friend on the Day of Love, don’t sweat it.
