If you're looking to enjoy the holiday season surrounded by "New England heritage and charm," make an effort to lodge at "Vermont's Most Beautiful Address." At the Woodstock Inn & Resort, in Woodstock, Vermont, kids will get a sugar rush at first sight of the nearly seven-foot-tall gingerbread house, made from 136 pounds of dough.

Regal Southern charm greats you at this 124-year-old Beaux Arts style hotel in Virginia. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1969, you can expect your holiday season to be "memorable, fun and festive." Twenty-five twinkling trees dress up the Jefferson Hotel this month. Gather around the tallest one—a majestic 33-foot-tall evergreen— for the annual lighting ceremony on December 2.

As much as we love decorating for the holidays, is there anything more festive than snowfall? Natural scenes of snowy hills takes you to the winter wonderland we all hope for during the season. Curl up by a grand wood-burning fireplace with a steaming mug of cider at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, and watch skiers zip down the mountains at Beaver Creek through floor-to-ceiling windows. You can catch the tree lighting ceremony on November 30 or take part in any number of seasonal events during your stay.

Heading someplace warm this holiday season? That doesn't mean you have miss out on traditional holiday spirit. As guests enter the corridor that leads into the Porte Cochere, they'll be greeted by bright holiday decorations seamlessly adorning each passageway and will be in awe of the two massive evergreen trees and a sculptural menorah stationed in the hotel lobby. Trimmed to the nines with eight thousand gleaming ornaments and twelve thousand feet of ribbon, The Breakers Palm Beach would win over even the Snow Miser.
