Property Details

Welcome to our 1 BR at The Appalachian Hotel. This fully furnished mountain front unit has all the amenities and luxuries that you expect for your resort getaway. Enjoy skiing, mtn biking, water park, outdoor pool/spa and great local attractions.

The Condo: (Yes you are renting the entire condo!)

This updated privately owned 600 square foot Mountain front 1-bedroom condo is located on the 3rd floor at The Appalachian @ The Mountain Creek Ski Resort in Vernon, New Jersey.
As you enter the condo you will notice the warm inviting décor as well as the mountain views just outside the windows!

The galley kitchen and dining area are just to the left as you enter and is fully equipped, and boasts all the necessary appliances one would expect, including a stove-top (no oven), dishwasher, microwave oven and a full size refrigerator. It comes complete with a Keurig coffee maker, a toaster, toaster oven and all the kitchen supplies needed to make a great family meal. The dining table seats 4 comfortably.

On the right you will notice the huge, beautiful bathroom with a separate tub and shower area and plenty of room to get dressed. Notice the beautiful tile floors that remind us of the 357 mineral species found nearby with a total of 28 that are completely unique to the area. Pretty cool!
The living room area is next and has a beautiful gas fireplace for those cold nights (shut down each April and back up each October), a wall mounted 42inch HD LCD TV, seating for 3-4 with mountain front and pool views and a sofa bed with a recently updated memory foam mattress that sleeps 2 comfortably.

The Creme De La Crème is the master bedroom where you will be greeted with warm earth tone colors in both the bedding and on the walls. You will find the comfy king bed fitted with a high end “Ikrema” memory foam mattress to ensure you a good night’s sleep.
Our quilts are beautiful and colorful and are rotated as the season changes. In the fall we may have a quilt with fall leaves on it, winter a bear theme, and summer, floral. Watch your favorite shows on the 32inch SMART LCD TV and gaze out to the mountains and ski slopes while resting on the comfy bed. The bedroom has direct access to the bathroom.

You get to enjoy all of the above as well as Wi-Fi, Cable TV, fresh linens, fresh towels, blankets, and basic toiletries. You get to use the COMMUNITY pool (when open), COMMUNITY hot tubs (when open), game room (coin operated), underground parking, and fitness room!
This condo truly provides all the comforts of home and then some....

The Mountain Creek Ski Resort is a 4-season resort that offers Alpine Skiing, Snow Boarding, Mountain Biking, Zip-Line, and a Water Park - all on site as well as a tree top experience down the road.


Vernon Township is located in Sussex County New Jersey, USA. It is located about 1 hour from New York City and was established on April 8, 1793. Iron mining was prevalent during the mid-to-late 19th century. Mines such as Canister Mine, Williams Mine, and the Pochuck Mine created industry which spawned local businesses and brought rail travel to the town.

Today Vernon and the immediate area is an outdoor lover’s paradise. Here you will find a landscape consisting of residential and resort communities, farmland, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, bird watching, barns, horse farms and stables, lakes, fishing, and just so much natural beauty. The famous Appalachian Trail (AT) even runs through it! You will be amazed on what you will find only 1 hour outside of New York City.

Gerald was a great host with thoroughly communicating his expectations, things to do, and much more. The space is clean, with beautiful views, and gives you the home feeling you want while traveling. If you haven't stayed at one of his locations at mountain creek, you are missing out.

We had a wonderful stay! Gerald is a great host who quickly resolves any questions that come up. The condo has a beautiful view of the mountain and is very comfortable and convenient for skiers. We look forward to visiting again!

Place was fantastic! The resort was clean and had fun activities, the condo itself was beautifully kept. The pictures I feel don’t do it justice. Gerry was incredibly communicative and offered up great recommendations for locale spots. Can’t wait to go back 🙂

Great getaway! Close to NYC if you live nearby to drive by car, but far enough to escape it! So great!

This place was great! We were up for a night for a wedding nearby and this provided the comfort and space we needed after a long night. The bed is so comfortable and the entire place is super clean!

Stumbled upon this place looking for places to stay near legoland. Is 30 minutes from the park and was a much better option compared to area hotels that were priced similar

Cleanliness, eh.
Overall great.

Great place, only downside was it was on the pricier side for us but worth the splurge esp. for the convenience of being right on site for the mountain bike park and the water park! Gerald was very communicative and wanted to ensure we had a good stay — and we definitely did!

"Airbnb Review #420944567337017017 #119893"

Gerald’s condo was beautiful and clean. Great location with a balcony overlooking the mountain.

Would definitely stay here again! Everything was as described and it was a great getaway from NYC. Lots of fun restaurants, hikes and wineries nearby. The pool was definitely a plus

Wonderful area, extremely relaxing and the furnishings were beautiful. I would definitely suggest the short trip to Warwick, NY nearby (wonderful little town with great little shops and restaurants).

The condo is as described. It was a nice 2-night stay to getaway from the chaos of the city. The pool is nice but a bit small to accommodate the entire resort, in my opinion. Otherwise, it was a nice stay and Gerri stays on top of the communication!

"Airbnb Review #394076098454214125 #114158"

This condo is beautiful and perfect for a weekend get away. Everything was easy- good fast communication, no lengthy check in or check out, parking garage extremely easy to access. The space was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was SO comfortable and the view from the balcony was beautiful and relaxing. We were able to enjoy the pool as well as visit some local sights. I would definitely stay here again.

The check-in process was seamless, the unit was impeccably clean, and the sleeping arrangements were incredibly comfortable. Gerry provided a great list of local favorites for food, drinks, and entertainment. His recommendations were spot on, and we had a blast during our stay at Mountain Creek.

This is such a lovely space. The view is awesome, the place was immaculate, and the furniture was comfortable. I consider this to be a fabulous place for a weekend getaway.
