Minerals Hotel for Winter Weekend Hydrotherapy Getaways

Minerals Hotel, part of the Crystal Springs Resort, is a short drive from New York City. Located in Vernon, NJ, amid the fresh mountains of the Appalachian Valley, it provides an entirely different realm for a romantic, work, family, spa, fitness, foodies, and/or a friends getaway. Everyone will appreciate the offerings below, but here they are, categorized nonetheless:

For the Spa Lovers
Elements Spa offers facials, massages, full-body treatments, hand + feet treatments, and even short mini-treatments for children 6-10 years (the Strawberries & Chocolate Sundae Facial sounds fun). If hydrotherapy is your spa vibe, then you’ll love the variety of hot, warm, and cold-plunge pools after a refreshing steam room or sauna session. Dip into a hot tub and relax under the resort’s massive aquarium. The Minerals Pool Complex included an indoor and outdoor heated pool, so you can swim like a Swede when it snows.

For the Fitness Fanatics
The sprawling Fitness Room is an enormous complex with almost every conceivable machine to satisfy gym enthusiasts, and it also has a running track, personal training on offer, and a cardio center. You can head to the Rock Climbing Room to challenge yourself, or hike a variety of Appalachian trails nearby. Love yoga? Enjoy it with goats! And golfers know they will find world-class courses here. The nearby sister resort, Crystal Springs, has an ice skating rink, too.

For the Families
There’s no dearth of things for children to do. The Game Room offers a wide variety for kids of all ages to play, including PlayStation 5 and the XBox Series – and for adults, there’s Oculus VR/virtual reality and pool tables. Open from 10am-10pm, the Game Room is a veritable fun zone of activities that everyone in the family can enjoy. The hotel also offers archery, pickleball, and axe-throwing for the brawny and muscled. Legends Riding Stable is located very close to the resort, so horseback riding is a family outing option.

A Stuffed Animal Workshop is a memorable way for kids to make their own souvenirs, and 21+ Wine Tasting is a great way for adults to remember Minerals as well.

Activities for All
Convivial variety shows take place in the Ballroom, encompassing comedians, magicians, singers, dancers, and other entertainers. A dinner and a show will often include a buffet (which kids love), an open bar, and an elegant Ballroom setting. Other activities include curling, laser clay shooting, marshmallow roasting, family bingo, Festive Mixology, Metal Stamping Workshop, and more. Activities cost extra per person, and require advance reservations.

Gourmet Foodies
So many delicious food options abound at the Minerals Hotel that you’ll be grateful for the fitness center. In addition to solid room service, you’ll find casual dining and American cuisine at Kites Restaurant, seasonal goodies at Frosty’s Cantina, and at the Zinc Cafe, pastries, coffee, protein shakes, souvenirs, and grab-and-go sandwiches.

For the Remote Workers
WIFI and spacious room desks, combined with ultra-comfy beds, ensure sound sleep, a space for getting focused and productive, and plenty of options for taking a unique and refreshing break.

Wedding Party Spree
Share a spa experience as a wedding group, throw axes, shoot at clay objects, explore the pool complex and hydrotherapy options, delve into the game room for spirited billiards competition or a shared VR experience, attend the evening entertainment with comedians, magicians, or singers and dancers, or descend upon the Board Game Library en masse for group gaming.

The delightful array of guest rooms and suites offer comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed spaces.
