Crystal Springs Resort, Hamburg, NJ, USA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Crystal Springs Resort NJ
Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey has all the bells and whistles for a perfect getaway in any season and features three golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools, two spas, twelve restaurants, and so many activities that you wish there were a few more hours in the day to experience them all. We thoroughly enjoyed discovering what this AAA Four-Diamond resort has to offer. Conveniently located one hour from the George Washington Bridge, and 70 miles from Greenwich, Connecticut, the resort is close enough for a perfect weekend getaway.

The resort consists of two hotels, Grand Cascades Lodge and Minerals Hotel. We stayed at the resort the first weekend in March 2022 when there was a chill in the air, and a little snow remaining in places. The resort is nestled against a backdrop of the Appalachian Mountain Range and the rolling hills of its three world-class golf courses (Wild Turkey Golf Club, 18-holes, Course Rating/Slope 75.3/135), Crystal Springs Golf Club, 18-holes, Course Rating/Slope 73.5/139, and Cascades Golf Club, 9-holes, Course Rating/Slope 37.7/141).

We stayed at Grand Cascades Lodge in a stunning one-bedroom suite which consisted of a separate bedroom with king bed and a great room with living room with gas fireplace, dining area, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen with stove, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker, dishwasher, and washer and dryer, perfect for longer stay vacations. In addition to the king bed in the separate bedroom, there was also a pull-out sleeper sofa in the living room.

The spacious bathroom featured a walk-in shower with rain shower head, jetted tub perfect for soaking after a day experiencing the resort's activities, lighted make-up/shaving mirror, hairdryer, and a plethora of amenities. Other suite features included a safe, ample closets, and an iron and ironing board.

The suite had a balcony with round table and four chairs, and while it was still cold the final days of winter, we enjoyed sitting out there with our morning coffee and enjoying the spectacular view of the mountains.

The resort has a changing calendar of daily activities to appeal to diverse age and interests. One of the activities we experienced was their Wine Tasting in their Award-Winning 45,000 bottle Wine Cellar with Wine Director and Sommelier Suzanne Wagner. The informative and very tasty wine tasting was a highlight of our stay. (Read about theWine Tasting in theWine Cellar section.)

Executive Chef Aishling Stevens is the talent behind the resort's impressive restaurants, and we had an excellent dinner at the Crystal Tavern, where a wall of windows overlooking the mountains complemented the cuisine. We also had the pleasure of listening to renowned guitarist/composer and Latin Grammy winner Hernan Romero perform in the restaurant. A few of the highlights of our dinner included the Crispy Octopus beautifully presented with beluga lentils, lardo, and heirloom carrot, the fork-tender Short Rib of Beef presented on a bed of aligot potatoes (mashed potatoes with cheese), cipollini onion, and baby carrot, and the Apple Crumble served warm in a cast iron skillet accompanied by three scoops of ice cream.

After our leisurely dinner, the fire pits on the Fire & Water Decks beckoned invitingly with the offer of marshmallow roasting. Sitting by the firepit was both primal and romantic as we roasted our marshmallows on long wooden skewers and then ate them while they were golden brown, and warm and deliciously gooey.

We finished our perfect evening by visiting their Biosphere Pool Complex where we swam in the indoor pool, then bravely ventured outdoors to experience their heated pool brightly illuminated by a full-moon sky. After a visit to their sauna, we returned to our suite delectably relaxed and content.

The resort has activities to inspire all ages and abilities according to the season. During our stay a few of their many activities offered included horseback riding, hiking, yoga flow, body pump, axe throwing, archery, paint + sip on canvas, mason jar paint + sip, pony rides, laser clay shooting, wine tasting, and "glice" skating. In the morning, we took a self-guided Nature Trail Hike, followed by "glice" skating. (Read about experience"Glice" skating in theAdventures section.)
