Vacation Home “Smart Buys” are Affordable and Convenient
           Crystal Springs Sets the Standard with Extraordinary Real Estate

Hardyston, NJ – A recent realtor report showed a big dip in speculative real estate purchases,
while vacation home buys actually increased. These second home sales were predominantly
driven by baby boomers with disposable income and contemplating retirement. In a recent
National Association of Realtors (NAR) report, 79% of buyers said the primary reason for their
vacation home purchase was to have a family retreat, and 42% purchased less than 100 miles
from their primary residence. Rural areas and resorts were the most popular choices for second
homes making up more than half of all purchases. Real estate in an unsaturated market, with an
active vacation rental opportunity, and conveniently situated near upscale destinations are
considered to be solid investments. Furthermore, with mortgage rates still at an all time low there
has never been a better time to buy. Where not to buy? Property that has “appreciated too much”,
takes too long to reach, or will cost a lot to insure in areas prone to natural disasters.

A real estate trend that started in South Florida, where condominium hotels sold out virtually every
property, is now showing success in one of New Jersey’s fastest growing tourist regions, the
Sussex Skylands. Crystal Springs Builders is spear-heading the development of condominium
hotels offering beautifully furnished, fully maintained suites in a luxurious four-season resort
setting. It’s a rural, unsaturated real estate market, and The Village at Crystal Springs is the
perfect selection for a convenient getaway destination. The Resort’s location is only 47 miles from
Manhattan and with volatile gas prices on the rise, the NY Metro baby boomer need look no
further. An attractive maintenance-free lifestyle can be enjoyed in glamorous style by purchasing
one of a few residences left at Grand Cascades Lodge, a world-class 212 suite condominium
hotel opening July 2007.
The growth in sales of second homes in this sought-after neighborhood confirms a trend of
buyers, living in and around Manhattan, that want to be closer to their weekend digs. Optional
rental programs available on select homes make the investment even more appealing as it helps
offset costs. Vacation home buyers see long term value in the mix of recreational and lifestyle
amenities at Crystal Springs Resort - which continue to expand. These include 6 award-winning
golf courses (with a 7th currently under construction), fine dining at Restaurant Latour with its Wine
Spectator Grand Award-winning 51,000 bottle wine cellar, Elements Spa, state-of-the-art Minerals
Sports Club, winter skiing, and a 53,000 sq ft Country Club offering an attractive Social
Membership. Grand Cascades Lodge will provide the additions of a unique Biosphere for year-
round swimming and sunning, Reflections Spa, a natural turf miniature golf course, meditation
gardens and more. The surrounding lush hillsides and fairways provide the setting for a “home
away from home” where families and friends will play, socialize and return often.          Interested
buyers should ask about the Resort amenities package valued up to $50K with the purchase of a
limited number of remaining suites at Grand Cascades Lodge and select townhomes. Experience
the privileged resort lifestyle without all the added fees.*

Finally, adding to the area’s allure is Crystal Springs Builders’ proposed future growth plans, with
emphasis on a spectacular indoor waterpark redevelopment at Great Gorge Country Club, an
exciting mixed-use town center, and several more sophisticated residential sections.
