The one bedroom unit was spacious, well appointed with a wonderful gas fireplace, and clean. The outdoor hot tub, Jacuzzi and pool were attractive and fun. The gym was amply equipped. The location was convenient. The services and staff were very good-helpful, responsive and pleasant.The only (minor) negative was that the adjacent ski lodge with restaurant/bar had not yet re-opened...

Spent the night at the Appalachian before a trip to PA to go to.a 4x4 park Definitely an excellent way to start our trip! The staff at the front desk (Cheryl) and our shuttle driver (Mike) made our visit extremely easy to relax and enjoy the moment (a few hours of peace and quiet). I'm already looking forward to going...

The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. The rooms were spacious and clean. Staff were very helpful and extended many small extras. We were there for a Spartan race - a shuttle was provided, our room had water and they gave us complementary coffee when we returned (the weather was cold and rainy).

Me and my boyfriend went to Mountain Creek to go ziplining and hiking on the mountain for a weekend, and the Appalachian was right there, across the street from where we needed to be. We went for two nights and three days (Friday-Sunday) and it cost us $423, which for 2 college students on a budget was a bit pricey,...

I stayed at the Appalachian early September with my husband and kids. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was more like an apartment, with kitchenette, fireplace, pullout sofa, and balcony. The view of the mountains and the pool was beautiful, the heated pool was wonderful the kids loved it, the arcade was a bit dated but nice extra,...

We needed to go to Warwick, NY, for a family affair, and couldn't find a place to stay there. We found Mountain Creek which is only 15 minutes away from Warwick. The place is wonderful! The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed and wanted. It was facing the mountain and we were able...

We were guests of a very large wedding party staying at the resort in early August. Resort is rustic and rooms (we had a one bedroom) were beautiful, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Hotel staff was on top of everything for such a large group of people from front desk to valet staff. Shout out to Jeff, Marc and Cheryl!...

Our stay at Mountain Creek saved our honeymoon! The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Evan and Cheryl were amazing. Our room was so perfect, and we really enjoyed the hot tub and fire place.

We didn't expect that there is a nice hotel in this area. The pools are warm even though it's chilly out. There are beautiful gardens around the pool area and not crowded and clean. We had a great time! Great room, high ceilings, didn't expect there's a nice kitchen. Good layout! Very nice service. Will definitely come back. Glenda
