Property Details

This beautifully appointed A+ rated 1 BR "farmhouse" condo is located at the Mountain Creek Ski Resort in Vernon NJ. It is pool front and comes with a king bed, a gas fireplace, full kitchen, sofa bed, and a large bathroom and sleeps up to 4

Pool is still open up through 10/11/2022

Welcome to the "The Vernon Farmhouse"

When you enter this condo you will be greeted with first class modern farmhouse decor that exudes that warm comfy feeling of life as it should be. That feeling of family gatherings, food, wine, fun and overall good times.
This warm painted condo has been recdently updated with new furnishings and decor and has been providing wonderful accommodations to its guests for over 8 years running. Nestled across the street from the Mountain Creek Ski, Bike and Water Parks, and close to wineries, farms, antique shops, lakes, the Appalachian Trail, it only seemed fair for us to recognize the areas’ best features and make this condo fit in with the surrounding farmland. We want you to go back to a time when life was simple while proving modern amenities when desired. Our old school family games of "tic tac toe", "connect 4" and "triangle peg game" will connect you and your kids again.


The King BEDROOM is full of personality from the gorgeous Pottery Barn "Paulsen" reclaimed wood bedroom collection to the Soft Textured Ceramic Lamps and the rustic wall decor providing a rustic and relaxed environment you won't want to leave. A 32 inch ROKU TV with free access to Sling TV, YouTube TV and the new DISNEY + as well as access to your own Netflix and HULU accounts, and seating for one increases the comfort level. Soft drapes along with sheer curtains block out the daylight when needed to ensure a great nights’ sleep.
Across from the bedroom is a large spacious bathroom with a separate shower and tub and a huge mirror to get ready for your busy day ahead. We scored an amazing picture of a horse at Kirkland's that we just love and hope you do to.
Next is the large full KITCHEN with all the items you need to prepare that amazing family meal when warranted. It is complete with a Keurig single cup and carafe coffee maker, Nespresso machine, small appliances one would expect, a new bronze Pfister faucet, granite counter tops, and all you would expect in a turn-key kitchen.

As you enter the LIVING ROOM you will be welcomed with lots of amazing views out onto the large furnished deck, the pool area and nature in general. Sit in the new Pottery Barn "Irving" Leather Chairs, a classic club chair that offers extreme comfort as you watch TV or read a good book by the fireplace.

Our couch is a full sleep sofa with a new memory foam mattress for added comfort that offers our guests a cozy spot to sit, relax and put your feet up on the Crate & Barrel ottomans which also serve as the coffee table.

The dining area seats 4 guests on our new Pottery Barn Havana "Sea-grass" chairs while viewing the outdoors, the living room and the living room TV.

The deck is the largest deck at Black Creek and has seating for 6 guests, an umbrella and amazing views. Gaze out at the pool and watch other family members enjoying the 2 pools and 2 hot tubs.

Great location close to several places in the area we visited while spending an extended weekend at Gerald's place. The house itself is very cozy and decorated nicely and the amenities are well worth the stay here (pool & hot tub, nature trails, pond to fish/ boat on and our favorite of having the outdoor grills to use for cooking meals). Gerald's place also has a nice large bath tub for taking long relaxing baths.

The Black Creek Community is great for a peaceful getaway. My husband enjoys mountain biking and got to experience Mountain Creek Resorts Bike Park which is just at the top of the hill from this Air BnB. You can also enjoy beautiful views from the Biergarten at mountain creek resort and a water park. The grounds at the condo were gorgeous and inviting with a great pool and hot tub, fire pit and gas grills. We had a great time and enjoyed the peace and relaxation this Air BnB offers. Thank you to the host for everything especially great communication and advice on things to do in the area.

Gerry was a wonderful first host for my trip. He replied to my messages in a timely manner and answered any questions that I had about my stay. As for the condo, it was clean and provided me with the necessary appliances/amenities. The area is breath-taking and so relaxing. There's much to do around this area, so you're never bored.

It was nice and cozy for small family.
There’s only one bed room but it was ok for us because it’s king size bed.
I have 2 little kids. So I slept with my kids on the bed and my husband slept on the couch.
It was no problem. Couch was nice and enough size for my husband!
Place was so clean.
Mountain creek was not even 2minutes away lol
Oh, the resort pool was awesome.
Water temperture was warm
NOT cold AT ALL which is good.
Highly recommend this place!!

My husband and I came out for Valentines Day weekend to go Snowboarding, Tubing and just relax and this stay has been everything and more. The location is perfect, the house was clean and had everything you can think of you'd need. The communication with Gerry (the owner) was great. He was specific and we had no issues with checking in. We'd stay here next time we come to Vernon. Thank you Gerry for a great stay.
