  • Best room in Mountain Creek

    "They are right on the mountain with a perfect view of the slopes from the living room and dining. It's THE perfect room at the Appalachian."

  • AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, STUPENDOUS

    "Those are just some of the adjectives that attempt to describe this hidden gem located near Lambertville, NJ. The reason for the visit: a family reunion with folks coming in from as far away as California and Georgia. The property and the amenities were beyond our expectations. All who attended kept raving about the grounds and the homes: main house, carriage house, pool house and game room. And one of the best parts was the separate barn yard area where the kids got to visit the goats, chickens, ducks, cow, calf, and papa bull. What an experience! This was all enhanced by a more than lovely walk across a covered bridge with a running stream underneath. I could go on for pages waxing eloquent about this property, but suffice it to say this is THE home rental to consider if you want the perfect ambiance, a more than well-appointed home, and truly a wonderful time. Many thanks to Brookmill Farm, great memories were made!"

  • Wonderful Getaway

    "This 2 bedroom condo had gorgeous scenery and was extremely comfortable. My husband and I stayed there with our adult daughter who had a few days off from work in NYC. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub after a day of hiking on the nearby Appalachian Trail. Wendy was very flexible and patient with us since we had to change our check in date last minute. It was a fabulous stay and and a very easy process for checking in and out. I would highly recommend this property for everyone!"

Skylands Region Travel Tips

Easy Access to Skylands, New Jersey From Skylands Vacation Rentals

The region known as Skylands is located in the northwest corner of New Jersey. Here, Skylands lodging is close to 60,000 acres of national parkland. It is a great area to enjoy the vast open spaces and outdoor activities available. It is easily accessible via major state and interstate highways, such as the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. It is also within an easy distance of Newark Liberty International airport and well serviced by Amtrak. The region includes the counties of Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, Sussex and Warren.

Come and See the Wolves, Bear, Deer and Muskrats at Skylands Lodging

This diverse region, with its lakes, rivers and rolling hills scattered with farms provides a stunning backdrop to Skylands vacation homes. Skylands contains two National Parks: Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Morristown National Historic Park. Delaware Water Gap contains 40 miles of the Middle Delaware River running through uninhabited forest. This is a perfect escape from the world where the beautifully clean river provides great swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, rafting or tubing opportunities. Throughout the winter, the trails become a perfect setting for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The area has been a haven for hikers for over 200 years, with mile after mile of wilderness. One of the dozen or so buildings within the park is early 1900s Millbrook Village where volunteer "villagers" reenact bygone days for visitors.

Lakota Wolf Preserve provides a unique opportunity to watch these mysterious and elusive creatures in their natural habitat. There is nothing quite like spotting a pack of the local Tundra, Timber and Arctic wolves, or just hearing their distinctive, chilling howls. Lucky visitors may also spot a bobcat or fox during their trip. At Spruce Run, with close to 30 different species of fish, visitors can fish for bass, perch, carp, trout, pike and many others. Once you have caught enough, you should take them home and throw them on the grill. At the Round Valley Reservoir, divers and swimmers are welcome to take advantage of the clean waters. The Merrill Creek Reservoir is 650 acres of wilderness area where visitors may spot the local residents, such as black bear, white-tailed deer, fox, muskrats and birds such as bald eagles, hawks and herons. It is also a great fishing spot with several species of trout and bass there.

Shop at the Local Farmers' Market and Catch Your own Dinner

Visitors to Skylands vacation rentals will also want to explore the many local towns, like High Bridge, Newton, Flemington and Washington, where the local farmers' markets will provide the opportunity to buy some wonderful fresh produce to take back to your vacation home. Phillipsburg, with its historic Victorian buildings, is a place for family fun, with train rides and river boat trips, rafting and tubing. This region is a big producer of blueberries and cranberries and visitors will enjoy sampling the local dishes, filled with these staple products. For those who enjoy a round of golf, there are fabulous courses around the area.

Bring the Dog to Your Skylands Vacation Homes

Skylands vacation homes are as unique as the region. Whether you are looking for a romantic hideaway for two or a large family home, there is a perfect choice available. Rentals come packed with everything you need to make yourself at home. Many properties are on the lake and have decks, docks and some even include a boat! There are properties with wireless internet access, BBQs, and entertainment systems. There’s even room for the dog as many homes are happy to accommodate pets.
