Property Details

This is the crème de la crème among the two bedroom two bathroom condos at The Black Creek Sanctuary. You will feel like your at a lodge at the "Swiss Alps" overlooking the lake and nature.


When you walk into this beautifully appointed lodge you will realize you rented a top notch condo and you will feel like you're at a European ski house. The first unique item you will notice is the "birch tree" just inside the entrance inside the condo. It welcomes you with a quick hug from nature. You will then notice and admire all the detailed wood-work throughout the first floor. Beautiful wood beams frame the tall windows and can be seen all along the interior walls as well. No other rental has such amazing detail.

The living area with its high cathedral ceilings and expansive windows has breathtaking views of the lake and nature just outside. Relax on the plush sofa and chairs situated right near the fire-place for those cold winter nights. The unique decor continues as you will notice a toboggan and a sled hung on the wall to let you know this is a ski house.

The dining room continues the theme as the wood work is extended in the furniture and walls with even more beauty.

The renovated kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, beautiful Cherry wood cabinets an all you need to create that wonderful family meal when necessary.

The Master Bedroom is situated on the second floor where you will have privacy and great views of the lake from the balcony at the top of the staircase. It has a king bed and a smart TV for your pleasure.

The 2nd bedroom is located on the first floor and comes with two twin beds (each with a trundle, allowing 2 additional guests comfortable sleeping arrangements) and a smart TV. The owner has created wall art using 4 tennis rackets which again makes this unit unique and lodge-like!

Both 1st and 2nd floor bathrooms have been remodeled to offer luxurious accommodations throughout your stay, including a deep soaking tub and spa-like showers.

Outside you will have use of a large storage closet just underneath the stairs. It can store lots of skis and boards and about 4 mountain bikes.

So if you're looking for a place to stay after a day of winter or summer activities this 2 bedroom condo is a top choice.

The house instructions were sent via email and text messages. In total I received 17 emails and 10 text messages from different numbers. One email for example is about the Wi-Fi, another email is about TV, and so on!
instead of having one combined email with all instructions, it was very hard confusing to find any info.
When I reached out to get help, the person who answered did not know anything and always replied with: I will ask the owner and let you know, but never got back to me.
We could not locate the thermostat so we were staying in the cold ( freezing temperature ) almost an entire night until someone finally told us where to find it.
At checkout A lady came in and was very rude to everyone because we asked to checkout 1 hour late.

Why pay more money for a hotel room when you can have a lovely spacious condo with beautiful moutain views. This condo was in a perfect location. Proximal to the Appalachian Trails, coffee shops, farms, apple orchards and so much more! What a beautiful fall experience. Usually heading to Vermont for foliage, I was wondering how it would compare. The area was stunning. Gerald was very clear precise and efficient with his communication. He checked on me to ensure a safe check in which was very thoughtful. I have traveled to many locations. This is outstanding. Thank You Gerald for your outstanding customer service. Blessings, Susan

We were just looking for a quick few days away.... Vacations at home don't work for us because we just can't sit still. Gerry's place is only about a 1/2 hour from our home but we loved being there...we felt far away. Comfortable place, as described and close to great attractions. We didn't get to use any amenities but hope to come back and use them next time. We just enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the wildlife. Thanks Gerry!

We had a great stay here! The rooms are very cozy whether you're working or relaxing. Going to the nearby pool+jacuzzi and coming back was a great routine we did a few times everyday. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely time at Gerald‘s place! Everything was clean comfortable and cozy. The community was nice, gated, private and felt safe. The pool was clean and a lovely temperature. Great location close to the waterpark and some nice places to eat. We would love to come back!

Very nice place, quiet and quaint backyard view. Everything about the pool area was perfecto! Be aware that the pool does not open till 2 pm. The twin bottom beds were not that comfortable for bigger kids but for small children, no problem. Comfortable king-size bed and the showers/ bathrooms were updated and wonderful.

Gerry and Arlene live up to the superhost stamp! Beautiful condo, keep an eye out for whether it's top or bottom floor though if you dont like stairs. The community is wonderful however restrictive in terms of pool access, BBQ and firepit access. The 30 acre nature preserve was a plus, caught some good bass in the evening and saw some turkey and deer. Kids loved it as did the grandparents.

Gerry is a great host and Great communicator. He gave us all the necessary directions we needed.

The place was a nice weekend escape for me and my family. Getting here took too long. The Traffic in NY is getting out of hand.. it took us almost 3hrs to get here when the distance is only 80miles

This was the cleanest AirBNB we have ever stayed at. The beds were really cozy and it has a great view from the deck. Everything you need is covered...including ALL tv subscriptions so that was great on a rainy night. We would definitely stay at any of Gerald's places again.

Beautiful winter get away on an amazing location! Our family enjoyed every little minute of it! Steps away from mountain creek. You can leave your car behind and take a 5 min walk to the mountain creek resort. The host (Gerry) responds almost immediately to every question. Easy check in and out procedure! Our family will be staying there again… Thank you Gerry!

What a fantastic get away! The lodge was well appointed, clean and a wonderful experience. The deck looks out to a beautiful wetland area with picturesque mountains in the background.....a great view for morning coffee. And very close to a lot of great hikes, breweries and downtown Warwick.

Nice place with beautiful views. Like the two floor layout to have space from my kids. Saw beavers at their lodge! Quiet area. Very comfy master bed and living room furniture. My adult sized kids complained a bit about the twin mattresses but they slept fine. I’ve let Gerald know that the downstairs water pressure needs attention- nothing that impacted our stay. We enjoyed our time!

On a whim, I decided to take my kids up to Vernon for a snow tubing adventure. After doing some research, we opted to stay at Gerald's place. The location was perfect!!! Close to the parking lot that the shuttle picks up from for snow tubing. The condo itself was easy to get to and had plenty of parking out front. Gerald's instructions were on the money when it came to the check-in process. The condo was bigger than I expected and everything was immaculate. The beds were super comfy..loved the black-out curtains!! There was plenty of space for us to find out own corner for some relaxation. My kids had some homework that needed to be done and the internet in the condo worked flawlessly. The kitchen had everything that we needed for cooking our own meals. We had an issue with the coffee maker and Gerald was more than willing to deliver a replacement. All in all, we had a great time and will be staying here next season!

Gerlad’s place at Black Creek is an amazing getaway with a real cabin feel. The place has a great size for my family of four. And the kids room has extra space for other rug rats if needed!

The place is located next to the ski and tubing mountain. And it is also right near the resorts which have other family activities and restaurants. I definitely recommend Gerald’s cabin house for a winter getaway (probably great in the summer also.)
