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.
We have been going to Crystal Springs for many years and this is the 1st time we did not stay at the resort and book with the hotel but rather HomeAway and we WOULD RENT AGAIN. Lou was very easy to work with ; we arrived and immediately went into relaxation mode with easy check in and out! His unit is in a perfect location and quite.
A great stay and amazing place... we will be back
My family stayed here for a week. No snow during our stay which was a bummer as we had hoped to do some skiing and snow tubing. Played golf instead. A good place to stay with good options. Book the restaurants early if you are going there during the Christmas Week. Lou was very responsive. Check in and Check out was a straight forward affair.
My husband and I had a very relaxing and enjoyable time in your unit. It was spacious, we'll decorate and the view was amazing. Every morning we ate out on the deck and enjoyed watching the golfers. In the afternoon my husband went golfing and I enjoyed the Biosphere. At night we had a delicious meal in the on site restaurant.
My family and I had vacationed here at Crystal Springs several times. We love the amenities and the resort feel from spa treatments, pools and the good restaurants on premises. Entertaining a 7 year old is not easy and we found enough things to do without driving out 15-70 miles to the nearest entertainment. I luckily found Lou's unit quite by accident when booking a trip to Fort Lauderdale on vrbo. Although a New Jersey resident only 40 minutes away, this unit is AWESOME- For quick getaways and relaxing weekends and just time to unwind from the business of life anytime! Lou is very accommodating and easy to communicate with, response very timely! This is TOP unit with lots of privacy and quiet!!! Great views of the valley and golf course below! My only regret is that I haven't made enough time out of my schedule to book more often! Thanks Lou!
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.
Enjoy Golf at Five Courses (Ballowen, Wild Turkey, Black Bear, Crystal Springs and the Spa). All Courses Located Either on the Property or Within a Five Mile Radius, Mountain Creek Water Park, the Warwick Winery, Antiquing, Mountain Lakes, Horseback Riding, Biking, New Jersey High Point State Park, the Annual Renaissance Fair and More, the Ability to Just 'Do Nothing' and Relax and Mingle on the Large Outdoor Fire and Water Terraces.
