Overpriced for mediocre food and $11 a glass for crappy house wine which they only give you a 1/4 glass full!! A total rip off!!! $22 for 2 tiny glasses of wine is RIDICULOUS. Find somewhere else. There are many local places where you will get much more for you $$. My guess is because they are seasonal, they think...

The Appalachian is the perfect place to stay when introducing your kids or beginner level adults to a few days of skiing. The hotel itself is very good, and is exactly what a lot of other ski resorts are missing. The rooms are larger, clean, have a small kitchenette as well as a gas fireplace which gets nice and warm....

I always get a kick out of reviews that are so complementary of service and people who work there. Perhaps the reviews are written by co-workers? Not at Mountain Creek.

I live in NYC and mountain creek is only and hour and a half away. The Appalachian hotel is right next to the ski lifts. Employees are always friendly and helpful. To have a place like this relatively close to NYC is great.

Another great time at the Appalachian. Enjoyed the ski in and out, hot tubs, and there new kitchenette and bar. The kids loved the game room and bowling. Most important, we want to thank Cheryl for such a wonderful experience at checking and throughout our stay when we need help. She sets the bar high, and management should be happy...

Right off the bat I wanna start this review by saying I love Cheryl. Been coming to mtn creek for 3 years now and for my first time staying at the Appalachian, things were off to a great start! Cheryl greeted us with kindness and warmth sort of like a mother would, I immediately felt at home. Our room was...
