Luxury Winter Getaways for Less
Vacation home prices have fallen almost 40% since the peak and the bargains are attracting buyers, especially at the high end of the market. Here’s a sampling of deals you can find in winter vacation hotspots across the U.S.
Squaw Valley, Calif.1 of 6
Price: $1.35 millionBeds and baths: 4 and 3Square feet: 2,932Discount: 28%
Hosting the 1960 Winter Olympics may have put Squaw Valley on the map, but the year-round mountain resort keeps people coming back with its challenging slopes, quaint village and gorgeous scenery.
You can see plenty of those beautiful sights from this lodge-style home. Part of a private community that offers tennis courts and a spring-fed swimming pond, there are large windows throughout the house.
There is also a spacious family room with a built-in entertainment center. And, for wine lovers, there’s even a temperature-controlled wine room.
First listed for close to $1.9 million, this home is now selling for a relative bargain at $1.35 million.
