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


Vernon Township is 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.

Nearby attractions include the Appalachian Trail, Warwick Drive-in Movie Theater, Warwick’s historic Main Street, Antiquing, Horseback Riding, Restaurants, Wineries, Music venues like the “Blue Arrow Farm” and “Penning Farms”, Craft Beer Breweries, 9 golf courses, and "Lego Land NY" in 2021-2022 plus so much more!

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.

Everything was so lovely, thank you so much for having us. Our view was perfect and the rooms were even better. We especially loved the amenities of the lodge. Thank you!

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. Hiking, the winery, Warwick, the Biergarten. Just wonderful. Very explicit instructions on checking in and out. Highly Recommend!
