Italy is respected and represented with multiple vintages of Bruno Giacosa, Roberto Voerzio, Paolo Scavino, and other Barolo producers; an extensive selection of Super-Tuscans; and Gaja’s outstanding wines.
I love the views and quality of stay in the area. Great place for peaceful relaxation to off-the-wall fun with friends and family.
Always stayed in minerals and it was our first time in GCL. Had a very nice time with my wife! The unit was impeccably maintained and had great views of the biosphere, outdoor pools and landscape.
The place was very quiet and not as rowdy as compared to Minerals which we prefer. Great place to relax and unwind. I would take Lou's suggestion and book reservations early for the restaurant(s) that you would like to dine with. We were lucky to get a spot at Springs bistro because of a cancellation. Outside of the Lodge, you won't find a lot of places to eat, unless you prefer Burger King, Pizza, Pub food or chinese takeout.
Thanks a lot Lou and hoping to stay again in the future!
My family and I have stayed at the Grand Cascades Lodge several times and have always enjoyed it. This is the first time I used VRBO and I was not disappointed. This particular suite is on the fifth floor overlooking the pool complex with terrific westward views - a location such as this can't be guaranteed when booking through the resort itself. The suite was clean and well-appointed and very quiet (we didn't hear any noise from outside or from the hallway). The best part about booking via this site is that I saved hundreds of dollars (over a three-day weekend) versus booking directly via the resort. The only caveat is that you don't get access to the Mineral Springs pool complex whereas you would if you booked directly with the GCL. Plus there's no daily housekeeping service. But getting the room I wanted and saving a lot of money was definitely worth the trade-off. Plus, the owner was very communicative and helpful.
If you've never been to the Grand Cascades Lodge, I would highly recommend making the trip. The biosphere pool complex is great for kids as well as adults, and there are some terrific restaurants on site - I would particularly recommend the outdoor Chef's Garden in season. There are some beautiful outdoor spots to relax and unwind and, of course, there's golf on the property, a spa, and a ski area just a shuttle ride away. And this part of New Jersey is really a hidden gem. Despite the fact that we only live 30 minutes away, we always feel like we're on vacation far away when we go to the Grand Cascades Lodge.
I went to Grand Casacdes with my boyfriend and we had a great time. The pictures do not lie! The food was good especially at Crystal Tavern. The people there were sooo nice and welcoming. The biosphere pool was AMAZING! We spent hours there and even swam outside in the cold weather, it was great!
I enjoyed staying in Lou's suite, it was very home like and beautiful. Great views of the biosphere pool. I would definitly recommend Lou's place! If you want to relax, this is the place to go.
The only thing was Mountain Creek wasn't opened yet so our plans to snowtube did not happen.
My family and I stayed at the Grand Cascades lodge for two weeks at the beginning of August. The apartment was spacious and very well-furnished. The king-sized bed in the bedroom is very comfortable, and the pull-out sofa in the living room was perfect for the teenagers. The balcony faces the sunset, and one of the beautiful outdoor pools. the view is breathtaking, and my hsuband and I enjoyed a great many evenings sipping wine and enjoying the view. As guests, we had access to the amenities of the lodge. The biosphere area is wonderful for all ages, and the outdoor pools are beautiful, extremely clean and not crowded at all, even on weekends. The many restaurants at the lodge are great, but we became quite fond of the Chef's garden, which is reminiscent of an Tuscan or Provencal restaurant, with amazing views. As an alternative, the kitchen in the apartment is well equiped, and can be used for meals.
The kids spent some time at mountain Creek. there is a convenient shuttle that takes them there and brings them back. There also local stables for trail rides, and some wonderful wineries in the area. We enjoyed the one in Warwick and bought some pear and apple liquors. We also tried the spa (Minerals at Grand Cascades) and enjoyed it very much.
I would say that this place allows you to relax. You are in luxurious surroundings. I can't wait to organize a spa week end with my girlfriends.
Thank you Lou, for letting us stay at your wonderful place.
We just got back from a great weekend with our kids ages 9 and 13, they loved the condo and the views were great from the balcony we enjoyed sitting outside watching the sunset and playing a game with the kids. This condo is beautiful and everything and more than Lou says. We will be going back and will definitely stay here. Thank you Lou for sharing your condo with us. The golfing was also great!
Spent a weekend at this unit during the Wine and Food Festival last weekend. Terrific unit - granite and stainless appliances. Felt like being at home.
Cascades did a great job up in Vernon offering some very nice high-end accommodations and restaurants.
Thanks Lou for the weekend. We had a great time.
