This one level townhome presents an exciting opportunity to secure a beautiful, private, and peaceful home ideally located across from the Mountain Creek Ski, Bike and Water Park Resort in Vernon New Jersey.

From the moment you step inside this stunning home, you will be struck by the gorgeous country and rustic style and elegance shown throughout.

On those cold winter nights, you can gather with loved ones in front of the living room fireplace or kick back, relax and admire the outdoors through the windows or from the deck. An indoor-outdoor lifestyle is all yours with an effortless connection to the sun-soaked deck where you can entertain guests, start the day with your morning coffee, or end with a nice glass of wine from one of the many local wineries.

There’s a well-appointed kitchen that is ready and waiting for the home chef to create a masterpiece along with a dining room that’s perfect for gathering with family and friends. The well-designed, functional, and comfortable floorplan includes two nice-size bedrooms and two beautifully finished bathrooms.

Just as impressive as this remarkable residence itself is the sought-after community of Black Creek Sanctuary. You will have access to the sparkling pool with a rock waterfall feature, a kiddie pool, 2 hot tubs along with picnic tables and barbecue areas and there is even a fire pit. Endless picturesque walking trails are yours to explore, and there is a lake where you can launch your kayak or canoe or try your luck at fishing.

This region is renowned for its wide variety of outdoor activities with something to suit every age, interest and desire. Endless hours of skiing and snowboarding fun await while in summer there is mountain biking along with water and zip-line parks.

Those with a passion for golfing are spoiled for choice with nine nearby courses plus there is horseback riding, wineries, breweries, horseback riding, the Appalachian hiking trail, outlet shopping and so much more.

Located in the heart of the New Jersey Skylands region, the gated community of Black Creek Sanctuary is nestled against the Black Creek wetlands and is part of the Mountain Creek Ski/Bike/Water Park Resort. Crystal Springs Resort, known for its rejuvenating day spas and six extraordinary golf courses, is only minutes away. Some of the best golfing in all of New Jersey can be found at award-winning Ballyowen, Wild Turkey, and Hickory Hill.

Mountain Creek Resort just across the street from Black Creek offers the thrills of alpine skiing and boarding, a world-class mountain bike park or the refreshing diversions of a dynamic water park. And don't miss the chance to experience Zip-Lining. Buckle up your ski boots and hop the Black Creek Sanctuary ski shuttle, available upon request, to the Mountain Creek Resort ski area or to the Drop-Zone Snow Tubing Park just across the street!

There is so much more to explore throughout the area, you won't know where to go first: the quaint village of Warwick, New York, the numerous local wineries, the pick-your-own farms, or the many Sussex County State Parks like WayWayanda. Your getaway to Black Creek Sanctuary promises to be an unforgettable vacation right in the middle of an outdoor New Jersey playground. No matter how you plan to spend your time here, this excellent Vernon vacation rental condo ensures a truly peaceful getaway, filled with complete relaxation, splendid natural scenery, and so much outdoor recreation!

I loved that everything was on the 1st floor and all on one floors(no stairs) I loved that there was two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The pool was so warm and nice. And very close to where we wanted to be. The only this is one of the beds was not as comfortable as the other. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Clean and very comfortable- especially the bed in the master bedroom! Overall great experience with Gerald. Def will be booking with him again! This is completely out of his control but if you are sensitive to noise, make sure to bring a sound machine in case the guests upstairs are noisy.
