Nicknamed the Garden State, New Jersey has evolved into a varied landscape ranging from urban to rural, plus everything in between. As part of the New York metro area, this diverse state embraces a fast-paced tempo; however, there's a hidden treasure of natural splendor and tranquility to be found tucked away in its northwestern corner.

Encompassing a unique spirit of adventure and sophistication is Crystal Springs Resort, situated in the picturesque hills of Sussex County. Along with this scenic setting comes an array of exceptional amenities. Not only are these amenities unmatched, so are the area attractions. Whether you want a pampering spa treatment, fine wines or to explore Mother Nature’s beauty, you’re sure to find leisure, luxury and natural wonder around every corner.

“Crystal Springs is truly a one-of-a-kind getaway,” Director of Marketing Michelle Abate enthused. “The draw of our resort is that there's an amazing collection of world-class amenity offerings in a beautiful country setting, and it’s within easy reach from all points in the tri-state area. Imagine a destination resort like this less than 50 miles from New York City.”

The exceptional experience begins on a 4,000-acre property. Overlooking the towering peaks of the Kittatinny and Hamburg Mountains, this premier four-season vacation destination stands alone. The luxurious Grand Cascades Lodge caters to families, couples, and everything in between with spacious suites, private decks, and elegant fireplaces.

The pampering begins at one of two award-winning, full-service spas. A selection of soothing spa treatments help you transport to a world of pure tranquility at the Elements and Reflections Spas. Frequenters of the fairways can tee it up on any of the seven championship golf courses while the kids can splash around in tropical indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Indulge in gourmet cuisine at the Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning Restaurant Latour, sample spirits in the acclaimed 135,000-plus bottle Wine Cellar, or indulge in casual dining.

Adventurers can stay at the nearby sister property Minerals Hotel, with its massive sports club as a main attraction, or Mountain Creek, a slopeside resort where skiing, snowboarding, and tubing are just outside your door. In the summer, make a splash at the exciting waterpark or pump the pedals at the top-rated bike park. There are unique packages for everyone from golfers to skiers to spa-aficionados - and more.

“Crystal Springs Resort and Mountain Creek offer guests an opportunity to unplug and reconnect for a romantic getaway, family escape, or friends’ retreat,” Abate said. “Our lives are full of non-stop activity, so a trip to the resort represents a great opportunity to break from routine and enjoy precious down time at your own speed.”

Whatever vacation style you desire is just at your fingertips at Crystal Springs Resort, where unmatched amenities and adventures unite. Come discover so much, so close to home.
