Scenic Drive through NY

Experience fall’s glory with a good old-fashioned road trip! Journey through some of the area’s tallest mountains surrounded by dense forest, highlighted with an ideal color palette of fall foliage. As you wind your way along the Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway, you’ll find this unique experience offers scenery, waterways, rolling farmland, and so much more. The views along the Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway have inspired artists, writers, and tourists for decades – come find out why! You’ll fall for these unique and wondrous autumn landscapes surrounding our relaxing New York resort and spa!  

Birdwatching at our New York Resort and Spa!

Autumn is a glorious marriage of beautiful weather and endless opportunities for outdoor fun in the Catskills! Our New York resort and spa are more than a place to stay, we’re a haven for all. From beautiful foliage to curious chirping birds, you’ll discover all the beauties of fall during your trip to Emerson Resort & Spa! Bird watching is the ideal way to experience the outdoors while taking a break from daily worries and enjoying the nature that surrounds you! Bird watching could also be called bird listening as most bird species are more easily identified by ear than by eye. Don’t worry if you’re just beginning this hobby, you’ll find most Catskill Mountain hikes offer great views of birds at play. Complimentary binoculars are available at the Front Desk on a first come, first served basis. Your birding weekend starts in our New York resort and spa, Emerson Resort & Spa!


During your stay at Emerson Resort & Spa, we hope you’ll enjoy our New York resort and spa as much as the fall foliage and wildlife!
