Dean Gitter, the mastermind behind the Emerson Resort and its trademark “world’s largest kaleidoscope,” has severed ties with the establishment after 16 years.
Emily H. Fisher, the primary investor of the Emerson Hotel and Spa complex in Mt. Tremper, has purchased Gitter’s shares to become sole owner of the Emerson. Fisher is now the sole owner of the facility.
The sale of the Emerson will allow Gitter to devote his time to completing his other local project, the long proposed Belleayre Resort at Catskill Park, the businessman said.
