The Perfect Colorado Getaway For Christmas
Vrbo, an online community offering families a wide variety of rental properties such as condos, cabins, and lake rentals, put together a list of the seven "cutest" inns for a "country" Christmas. How do they define "cute"? Their post supplies images of "... a crackling fireplace, the scent of gingerbread, and all thoughts of shopping malls and busy airports and car commercials miles from your mind."
