It's a quiet time of year in these parts which can also be the perfect time to get away for a country retreat before the holiday chaos arrives. If you prefer to visit when there's snow to play in, it's also the perfect time to get a jumpstart on winter vacation plans. Book early, tune up the skis, dust off the fat bikes and bring the snowmobiles out of the garage. Winter is on the way! Bring it on, Mother Nature!
