Since Grand Cascades Lodge at Crystal Springs Resort is known for its multiple golf courses, the best time to head there is during the summer and fall. This way you can golf to your heart’s content without battling the elements. Of course, if golfing isn’t why you want to visit, these seasons are still prime so you can take advantage of the infinity pool, dining alfresco by the chef’s garden, and trying one of their zip-line adventure packages. However, make sure you check the calendar ahead of time as the property hosts some large events where rooms get booked fast — think the New Jersey Wine and Food Festival, New Jersey Beer and Food Festival, and Grand Cascades Lodge’s annual Oktoberfest celebration.
Of course, you can always come in the winter and swim in the Biosphere pool complex, get cozy in the wine cellar, indulge in the spa or reserve a spot next to a roaring fire. Even though the plants are dormant this time of year, seeing the land covered in a blanket of snow proves quite beautiful, and the accommodations quite cozy. If you prefer to be more active, visit sister property Mountain Creek for a wide array of winter activities, including skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing and adventure rides.
