I received a complimentary stay at Crystal Spring Resorts in exchange for my honest opinion.

For spring break with the kids we got the opportunity to visit Crystal Springs Resort the Grand Cascades. I have one word to describe it.


We drove to Crystal Springs With the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.

The first thing you notice is that even though it’s in New Jersey you go up into the mountains and you feel like you are so much further away. The view is spectacular I can’t imagine the beauty once summer arrives.


We stayed at the Grand Cascades which is one of the two resorts the other one is called Minerals Resorts. The rooms are just that GRAND there is a fireplace, large balcony, great scenic views, washer and dryer, full size granite top counter kitchen with a rustic cozy mountain feel.

All of the body wash products are from L’Occitaine

Places To Eat

Breakfast at Kites Restaurant

Lunch at Latour Restaurant

You can’t go anywhere without eating and Crystal Springs make sure you do just that with over 6 restaurants to chose from. During winter months, there is a restriction due to some restaurants only being outside but if you stay at Grand Cascades you get fine dining at LaTour and for a less expensive option we went to Kites restaurant located at Minerals Resorts.


Getting Around

There are shuttle buses that take you from one resort to the next and they run every 15 minutes we didn’t get to use the shuttle because we wanted to go other places. There is also a waterpark near by where you can swim in the summer and snow tubing and ski in the winter.

Things To Do

On top of the huge pool areas and outdoor swimming (which was fun) there are spas, basketball courts, tennis courts, golf, wine tours, exercise classes, marshmallows roasting, and much more (some activities are limited in the winter months)

Our first time swimming outside in the winter

Final Verdict

Crystal Springs Resort has everything you would look for in a resort for a vacation for all my of NYC readers you may be close to home but you feel far away.
