There was so much to do off season.

There was so much to do off season. The activity schedule is wonderful. There is something for everyone. This is also great for families. Food is fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer. My fav was the outdoor pool at night and we loved goat yoga.

Mia at Minerals front desk - excellent customer service!

I have a reservation for the Minerals Hotel in about a week. It's about an hour away from my town, so my husband and I took a ride up to look over the place. I spoke with Mia at the front desk. Mia is one of the most knowledgeable and amiable reps in customer service I've dealt with in ages. She took her time with us and answered our questions with ease. She even pointed out so many tips we wouldn't have known if we hadn't spoken with her. Mia is truly an asset to Minerals resort as she represents your establishment well.

Great stay at a beautiful resort close to home!

Went for a girls spa weekend and had a great relaxing time. The hotel was clean and well-appointed and the spa services were great.  If you go on a school holiday, there will be a lot of families and kids there because they have lots of family friendly activities in and around the resort.

February 2024


My wife and I went to the Spa and had an exceptional visit. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We had dinner at The Tavern which was very good. The room we stayed in was spotless when we arrived and ready early. The indoor and outdoor (heated) pools were very relaxing. We had room service for breakfast which was delicious. We will be going back for another visit.

February 2024

Pre-bday celebration!

Amazing experience during my stay at this resort. Love all in general …Beautiful rooms, clean with all basic cooking in the kitchen. Friendly staff, the pool and jacuzzi outdoor with perfect heat the same with the inside pool
In general we had an amazing experience.

February 2024

Love the pool

I booked a two bedroom villa up the hill from the main hotel. The unit is very large with two bedrooms, full kitchen and big living and dining area. The unit is very clean with basic starter supply for the kitchen and bath. Washer and drying are in the unit which is great because we used the pool a lot. The second bedroom is a loft unit and is accessible through a staircase. The fitness center is now on the ground floor which is great and downstairs has turned into an arcade for kids. The swimming pool complex is my favorite indoor and outdoor pool system available year round. The sauna and steam room is amazing. We discovered a brewery/cidery in the area and that was great. The ski lift is just down the road.

Peaceful honeymoon

We went for our 3-night honeymoon, and we were so pleased! Some things are closed during the week, so we weren't able to experience everything, but there was still a happy balance of activities and peace and quiet. Food was excellent. Spa too!

January 2024

Really enjoyed it. Would go back.

We loved our stay at Grand Cascades. It feels like an upscale ski lodge. (You’d have no idea you’re in NJ!) I have three little kids and there was no shortage of things to do at the resort every day- the pool, activities like build a stuffed animal, dinner and a show, scavenger hunt, s’more making at night …I think there is good value relative to the cost of staying at similar resorts in the greater NY area. Oh, and we loved the daily breakfasts.

Your paradise awaits you

When you enter this luxurious beautiful hotel it feels like you entered royalty! The beautiful flow of good energy, food, activities, the rooms, the spa, etc all of it makes you feel so honored to be part of this amazing hotel. I highly recommend this place for a good place to stay!!

Minerals Hotel is a must

Just got back from Minerals Hotel with my husband and I have to say I can’t wait to go back. Beautiful grounds. Pools are amazing. Heated pool, jacuzzis, and a plunge pool, saunas and steam room. Gym is the best I’ve ever seen for a hotel. Hotel and rooms are very clean and the staff is very welcoming and kind. Free hotel parking. Service was excellent. Went to Moonshine Bar and it was a nice night with a dj and the bartenders are very kind.

September 2023

Friends birthday celebration

We had a fantastic time with friends. Hanging by the pool in the biosphere and having drinks and delicious pizza. It was such a nice night in the warm pool with tropical surroundings. It felt like a little vacation. The lifeguards were so friendly and welcoming. Would definitely do it again!

September 2023

We love this place

Again, we stayed for one night and it was amazing as each time. This is our place to get away from the hectic life and relax. This time was even better because we usually come at the winter months but this time all facilities outdoors were open, great bar and food out where the pools are. Everything is accommodating clean and yummy. I am personally grateful to Blake. Such an accommodating and professional manager! Thank you for another great stay at the Minerals!

September 2023

Amazing pool

Great little girls get away. We went to the pool and had a great time. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The staff at the pool was amazing from the life guards too, the wait staff. The head life guard was amazing coming around checking on his guest! Would highly recommend.

September 2023

Amazing Bachelorette Party Weekend!

From check-in to check-out it was an amazing experience. We were amazed at how beautiful everything was. We had the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with fireplace deck and it was clean and enormous. We used the deck to eat and hangout often. Those who used the spa said it was a wonderful experience and one even booked an additional treatment. Biosphere pool and 180 Vista pool were incredible. Dinner at the Cascades Tavern was delicious and dancing at the Minerals Hotel was so much fun!

September 2023

Worth every penny

Professional/kind staff, beautiful resort with stunning views. Comfortable and cozy rooms. Invest in a room with a balcony. Try the gnocchi at the Bistro. Relax with a cocktail at the fire pits. Try the F’rose at the 180 pool.

September 2023

Great weekend!

What a great weekend! the pool, the pony, the food - all amazing. Staff is friendly and helpful when needed. And don't forget the Spa - very special. Just loved walking the grounds as well - never a dull moment. We will definitely be back soon!

Amazing experience!

The property is gorgeous! The service is phenomenal and we had such a wonderful girls’ weekend. There’s so much to do at the resort and outside ( make sure to check out Warwick, NY for a short day trip and the Bellvale farm creamery-). The property has beautiful views, 3 pools and many restaurants. We will definitely return again😉

Family Trip

My family and I had a great time at Minerals hotel. The junior suite was nice, spacious and clean. The view on the balcony was amazing. I love that the hotel provided activities and amenities for the kids and adults. The pools and splash pad were wonderful. We really enjoyed ourselves. You didn't have to leave the resort, everything was provided. I would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back.

August 2023

We can't wait to go back!!!!

This place is amazing! The staff is very friendly and ready to help with whatever you need. The rooms are spotless. The spa is first class and I had the best pedicure ever! We took a tour of the wine cellar and joined a wine tasting class. it was informative and delicious. The only regret we had was not staying longer.

July 2023

A wonderful getaway

Clean and so relaxing! We only came for one night to get away and it was wonderful. We actually enjoyed it more than the Bahamas! It’s perfect here. We loved the warm pool too! Absolutely coming back

June 2023

Absolutely loved Crystal Springs!

My husband and I took our daughter and her three besties here for a weekend to celebrate her Sweet 16. The girls had such an amazing time, as did we. So much to do. Biosphere pool was awesome. Ate at two different restaurants and the food was absolutely delicious. Rooms were so nice and very clean. Will definitely be back!

June 2023

Perfect Weekend Escape

Over all I would describe the lodge as upscale coziness. Grounds are just lovely, views from every direction were beautiful. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Close proximity to great shopping and dining areas.

June 2023

A great start to our vacation

We just arrived last night and already have great things to write. We enjoyed dinner (sit down) and breakfast (buffet) at Kites. Enjoyed the indoor heated pool with currents and beautiful lights last evening. Did goat yoga which we loved. And our maid Mildred was so friendly and caring and did a great job on our room to make sure we were happy. We can’t wait for the rest of our stay.

May 2023

Great place

Hotel and rooms are beautiful. Lots of activities for all ages. It’s a really casual, fun place to go and only about a 90 min. Drive from NYC. Highly recommend.

May 2023

Excellent romantic little getaway!

The hotel itself was beautiful, the beds were super comfy and the rooms were super clean. The bathrooms are updated and they are in the middle of renovation of the hallways. The food in the restaurant was out of this world. We were actually very surprised that the food was as good as it was….The service was excellent. I would highly recommend!

May 2023

Wedding venue

Excellent and picturesque resort, nice indoor pool. Beautiful place for a wedding venue. Wish we had more time to check out the full resort and use the other amenities and activities the resort had to offer. We would definitely come back again.

April 2023

An experience to remember

An experience worth having is all I can say. From the pampering, the sommelier , the 7 course meal, pool, Jacuzzi, sauna...... my wife is still floating on cloud 9. We will be back! Possibly visit every anniversary.

April 2023

Easter experience

This is a kids-friendly family resort and we love it every time we are here (this was our second trip). The entire resort is clean, lots of fun activities for kids and since we visited during the Easter weekend, the kids even got to meet the Easter bunny! We also elected the dinner and a show. And the show was of Anthony Salazar, the magician. He was fantastic. We will willingly stay at Minerals again.

April 2023

Amazing pool!

Gorgeous hotel!!! Staff is amazing as well! The pools are gorgeous you feel like you aren’t in NJ. The head guard Chris was so sweet and made sure our family got chairs and asked if we were having a good time. Idk any lifeguard ever that asked us how our stay was! Jemmy the hotel manager and Susan at the front desk were also very helpful... I highly recommend this property for your stay!

Located in the scenic skylands region of Northern New Jersey

Our proximity cannot be beat! We are only one hour from the George Washington Bridge and New York City's closest resort. Furthermore, we are the closest resort to the 3 New York Metro area airports.
