About Wendy

We purchased a two bedroom unit in 2009 and enjoy the area so much we added a one bedroom unit in September, 2010. A second two bedroom, top floor, mountain-view unit was added March 2013.

Wendy purchased this hotel in 2010

Why Wendy chose Vernon

We describe the area as a 'Slice of Heaven.' It is easy to get to from the tri-state area and is a beautiful part of New Jersey. We ski in the Winter, hike in the Spring and Fall and In the summer we escape our primary residence at the Jersey Shore and head up to the less hectic mountains of Sussex County, Vernon, NJ.

What makes this hotel unique

The Vernon and Sussex County area offers some beautiful scenery for photographers, great hiking (The Appalachian Trail), Apple and pumpkin picking, Stokes State Park, Wawayanda Park and High Point State Park, skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, ice skating, horseback riding, swimming, etc. There is something to do year-round for every age withinn the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We have had a great weekend here at MC! Your rooms are very well kept and feel like "Home." Thank you! We hope to book next year!

Wendy's BEAUTIFUL UPDATED Top Floor-Mountain View with the best Location!
average rating of 4.974359 based on 52 reviews
Harrison City, PA

Place is excellent! Most convenient location on the mountain.

  • 5 of 5

This property was great! The building is located right at the base of the mountain and you can see the slopes from the balcony. It is walking distance to everything at Mountain Creek. One minor perk of this unit...even though it is on the 4th floor...the unit is right across from the door to the back stairwell...which goes down to the upper parking lot. Made it super convenient to unload and load our vehicle upon arrival and when departing.

Clean, beautiful, and well-maintained, as always.

The perfect quick weekend getaway, yet again.

We come to Mountain Creek almost every year, and exclusively book a condo from Wendy.

Do yourself a favor: DO THE SAME AS WE DO.

Cozy winter lodge

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the second year in a row. And I will keep coming back. The room is perfect for 2-3 people, or even a family with 2 small kids. Everything is taken care of, no need to lug anything from home. This unit has a gas fireplace, log cabin decor, large soaker tub, shower stall, fold out sofa bed, queen size bed, 2 TVs, and a balcony overlooking the bunny hill and pool/hottub area.

A locker in a heated room is provided for storing skis/boots/jackets/etc. The garage is heated as well. Everything is within walking distance from the unit. And if you want something different, there's plenty of local places to go that are a short drive.

I can't recommend this place enough. It is perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you Matt! It is a pleasure having you stay. The bed in the master is actually a king size, but who care's since it's not that important! I'm happy you are comfortable at The Appalachian and have explored the area. I hope you try some of my recommendations that I put together on the "List of Things To Do in the Vernon area" that I send each guest. See you again soon and thank you again for your business! Wendy

Well maintained and feels like home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Wendy&co. are excellent property owners. Two families have stayed in two of their units for the last three years. The condos are well maintained and very clean. Access to the mountain for skiing is perfect for families with small children. All of the amenities Mountain Creek has to offer, downstairs store and bar, the game rooms for the kids, along with the heated pool/hot tub. We have a blast. We look forward to our ski weekend every year and are thankful we have found a place we plan to always come back to. Thanks!!

Owner's Response: Having repeat guests like you is such a pleasure! I love when my guests enjoy the Appalachian and Mountain Creek area and look forward to their trip each year. Unlike some other units in the building, I am always enhancing my units to offer the best experience possible for my guests. Thanks again for your business and I look forward to hearing from you next year! Wendy
