The Emerson Resort and Spa is more than just a luxury compound introducing travelers to the beauties of the Catskills, with a New American restaurant (Woodnotes Grill), splendid boutiques and the world's largest kaleidoscope. Marketing director Tamara Murray wants locals to know they're welcome too. "As we go about our business we see people curled up on the patio with a book or bringing a laptop to the library and some are from the community—we love that! Come for dinner, come for a walk; we'd love to see you!" Or come for a spa experience you won't find anywhere else: a new menu rolled out September 1 features vegan nail care, signature hot and cold stone treatments, and the "Emerson Integrative Massage" package, a two-hour custom-designed in consultation with a therapist and drawing on the spa's wide selection of treatment modalities "for the spa connoisseur."
