Winter Family Reunions at Crystal Springs Resort

You might think that summer is the best time of the year for a family reunion, but Crystal Springs Resort actually sees an influx of these gatherings during the colder winter season. The reason is simple: families, big and small, usually gather around the holiday season which is often the only opportunity to see distant relatives. So, many New York City residents plan a family trip into northern New Jersey for an overdue get together. Crystal Springs Resort is perfect for families of all sizes, especially in the wintertime, because of our onsite events, catering services, luxurious suites, and ample banquet space. Here are four reasons why families choose Crystal Springs for their annual reunion.

Lavish Banquet Rooms

Crystal Springs Resort has dozens of banquet rooms of all shapes, styles, and sizes. Many of our most popular rooms are located at the luxurious Grand Cascades Lodge, and include Bordeaux, Napa, and Garden. The Bordeaux Room is an exquisitely-designed space inside The Wine Cellar and can hold up to 50 guests. This beautiful room features stone walls, hand-crafted chairs, and stunning Persian rugs. The well-lit Napa Room can fit anywhere from 60 to 100 people. You’ll be attracted by the wine-themed art mural, unique ceilings, and charming architecture. The Garden Room, meanwhile, has forest views, tall ceilings, designer carpet, and large beams.

Extensive Catering Menus

One of the focal points for any family reunion is lunch and dinner. Your family is in great culinary hands, and our superb catering team at Crystal Springs Resort can craft any meal you can imagine.  Our sample menus will help you envision perfect reunion meals. Select from Italian feasts, Mexican fiestas, tastes of Provence, and much more! Whether your family loves braised chicken, grilled salmon, various pasta dishes, barbeque beef, or al pastor tacos, our team can make it happen with ease. 

Onsite Activities and Events

Our onsite activities and events make us one of the best weekend getaways from NYC. You might not believe it, but we provide dozens of wintertime activities. Enjoy a wine tasting followed by a Wine Cellar tour, hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage, join a mixology course, and witness an amazing magician. You can always soak in a hot tub, splash in a heated pool, and relax in a world-class spa. Crystal Springs Resort is proudly one of the best spa resorts near NYC.
