The classic Currier and Ives scene looks a bit more chaotic when populated with 21st century families but the idea is timeless – sharing time together. I have searched for and found Christmas holiday escapes which include festively decorated cabins and cozy lodges ideal for sharing adventures, making discoveries, and creating a few classic memories.
Even though November is almost here, it is not too late to book a vacation cabin for the holidays. This week I have spoken with more than a dozen locations each with options for the upcoming Christmas holiday break. True the choices have diminished since August but great places for fireside chats, stargazing, and holiday festivities still may be snagged.
I have a list of seven locations, each well-suited for a family winter holiday break some in cozy cabins with fireplaces and others in tents with fire rings and one in an awesome winter lodge. My three favorites:
- Eagles Ridge Mountain Side Cabins in Pigeon Forge. Appalachian retreats for families.
- Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Nashville – Extra magic of holiday lights and music.
- Stone Mountain Georgia – Christmas cabins plus extreme snow tubing.
More Christmas vacation ideas may be found in our vacation planning folder “Away for the Holidays.”
It’s not too late to plan an escape, really.
