My husband and I visited on their off-season, but the staff let us ride up to the top of the mountain. The view was amazing, and we will definitely be coming back.

The idea of Oktoberfest in this North Jersey ski lodge is a great one, but I can’t emphasize enough how poorly executed every single portion of this event was. I am not the type to write reviews, but feel so passionately about how poor my experience was and want to share my experience to pre-caution others. From the moment we... More

I have lived in Vernon and skied here for 40 years. Even in the warm winters and winters of little snow mountain creek always has consistent good conditions. The south area has numerous terrain features. Food is reasonable and the bar areas are friendly. Get here early because the crowds do build on a good weekend. Get a seasons pass,... More

You have s beautiful venue and if your housekeeping staff took better care, it would be outstanding. Your beds are comfortable, but consider using a mattress pad and a fitted sheet so your guests don't wake up laying on the bare mattress. Replace light bulbs in bedside lamps. Place shower curtain liners in your bathrooms so the fabric shower curtain... More

Its an okay place to stay. What we loved: The little studio suite had a kitchenette with plates, bowls, cups & silverware. That's great in case you want to bring your own groceries and cook. What we didn't like, but was bearable: There is no official restaurant here. That would've been nice. However, they do have this little convenience store... More

Our stay and our room was better than expected. Cathrine at the reception desk was extrodinary. She hand held my wife through a very tough decision to go to the wedding we were there for at the top of the mountain. The gondola ride scars her to no end. Cathrine offer practical procedures and some calming lavender oil to help... More
