Back in the mid 1970’s, a pair of visionaries with a thirst for adventure and an eye for opportunity heard about Sussex County and its lush, mountainous setting. Upon visiting, they instinctively knew that this land, rich in natural resources and beauty, was fertile ground to create recreational attractions that would flourish in all four seasons. Their pioneering effort led them to open New Jersey’s earliest ski resort, the water-themed Action Park, the area’s first golf course, and one of the first microbreweries in the U.S. And thus, Crystal Springs Resort began to take shape.
With the passing of time, additional family members with a shared passion joined in to expand upon the new amenities. Residential villages of the highest architectural standards ensued, followed by luxurious spas, a state-of-the-art sports club, and still, more verdant fairways. The culinary pleasures of food and wine were introduced, and celebrated at the highest level. A 78,000+ bottle Wine Cellar, considered one of the finest in the world, as well as the 4-star Restaurant Latour, emphasized the family’s quest for gastronomic excellence. The amazing herb and vegetable Chef’s Garden, with views reminiscent of Napa Valley, was created to ensure the freshness and quality of ingredients served throughout the Resort’s dining and catering venues.
And today, as the family’s traditions and talents soar to a new plateau, the singular dream of an extraordinary shopping, dining and entertainment destination comes to life at The Village Center at Crystal Springs – an exceptional establishment grounded in quality, craftsmanship, and the richness of life. You are invited to share in all the excitement this new venue offers, just as those two visionary gentlemen did years ago when discovering the area’s wonders.
