Property Details

This is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bathroom townhome located at Black Creek Sanctuary just across the street from the Mountain Creek Ski, Bike and Water park resort

1 hour from NYC !

This two-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. The property is set within the prestigious gated community of Black Creek Sanctuary with a host of outdoor activities just outside your door including hiking, biking, fishing and lots of wineries!

From the moment you step inside this stunning home, you will be struck by the beautiful rustic style shown throughout. Towering two-story vaulted ceilings combine beautifully with the oversized windows and abundance of natural light to ensure an interior that you will love returning to after a day on the slopes, a local hike or winery touring

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 large 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. All this is located less than two hours from New York City making it the ultimate weekend getaway.


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!

If you are looking for a relaxing stay, Gerald’s condo will fit the bill. The large patio overlooks an open area in a quiet setting. The three pools were perfect for the summer. We had plenty of space and everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and rooms included tvs and comfortable chairs. Be aware there are stairs into the condo. Gerald communicated throughout our stay and responded quickly to any concerns. We would stay again!

We chose this location as a halfway point between myself and family. We really loved the area and had an epic time hiking the stairway to Heaven. Black creek has a really nice pool and a sweet little wild walk by restored wetlands. The condo was spacious and very clean. Bring the kitchen basics you need if you plan to cook!

We had a great stay here. The unit was well laid out and clean with a nice view of the BBQ area. The complex is so nice with a great pool, hot tub, and walking path by the creek. Highly recommend especially for families!

The condo was great. Perfect for skiing across the street, easy for drop off and pick up.

Nice place to stay, located close to the trails and big enough to host a big family.
Expect to bring your own condiments (salt, sugar, spices) if you are going to be cooking.
Only one set of sheets/ blankets per bed, couldn't find any extras in listing. Bring more blankets if you tend to get cold at night, especially in the winter

Fireplace is super convenient and very nice
Bathtub in master bath is very nice as well

We had such a wonderful time at this place. The location is great and we enjoyed fall activities! Gerald was also an AMAZING host. So professional. When we had an appliance issue he quickly resolved it.We will happily stay at any of his properties.

My family and I had a blast! My 15 year old son and husband were impressed, which is very hard to do. The Condo was as described. It was very clean, had everything and anything imaginable, that you would need on a trip. It felt like home. The host Gerry was very good. He was attentive, and responded right away to help with questions and concerns that I had.

Check-in was super sweet, being fast and contactless. We were a family of 3 and it gave us enough space for each one of us to have some me time. The patio is cool to unwind after grilling or a nice swim in the pool. The grill is a hop, skip away and could be seen from the patio. Had a washer and dryer which was convenient. Neighborhood is very clean and the neighbors are friendly.

Neighborhood is very quiet, which was much appreciated! Just a few steps away is a basketball and tennis court which we liked. A short walk away is Mountain Creek, If you want to get adventurous. If you don’t want to walk, a shuttle is available.
If you need to get some things, there is a small mini mall 6 minutes away. It has ACME, Pizza Place, Bagel Shop, and a place to get some Wine! Along the way there are a couple of fast food spots such as Dunkin Donuts, Taco Bell, Chinese Restaurants and Burger King.

I can’t wait to book my next trip. I would highly recommend to family, friends and colleagues.

We recently stayed at Gerald’s condo for a one night getaway from the city. The place was very lovely & exactly as advertised. Gerry was very communicative and responsive throughout We really love the area & got to check out a couple of the fabulous restaurants and wineries on their extensive list of recommendations. Unfortunately with COVID, the pool hours were limited. Given our short stay, we were unable to take advantage of it, but there’s always next time! Will definitely be back.

Wonderful, quiet stay. Extremely well stocked unit. Cozy & spacious. Did not have any issues but owner responded quickly to our questions. Also checked on us the day we arrived to see if we needed anything. If we return to the area we would definitely stay again or in another unit owned by this host.
