Yes, it may be just a fantasy – and this late in the game may be impossible to book – but if you dream of being pampered, entertained or enchanted by total strangers for Christmas instead of getting another Egg Nog for Uncle Dave, here are 5 great Christmas escapes - there is always next year!nggallery id=’123817′
The Grand Christmas: Mohonk Mountain House
This old school hotel in New York has lots of festive winter activities like ice-skating in an open-air Pavilion (with Victorian skating chairs even), snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and sledding. Inside the hotel there are a dozen Christmas trees, gingerbread houses, loads of caroling, and hot apple cider at afternoon tea. Plus guests can have their room specially decorated, including stockings filled with treats on the fireplace mantle. Yup, it's all done for you.
