If you like the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, why not take a winter vacation at Refreshing Mountain Retreat and Adventure Center? Here a family of four can rent a lovely cabin for as little as $99 a night from January through the end of March, right in the heart of Lancaster County. The cabins contain all the amenities, except televisions for a truly rustic vacation. Free Wi-Fi is available in all cabins, as well as a kitchen with microwave, stovetop and refrigerator.

If you want to make it a package, there are some extra activities to choose from. Among some of the nearby discounted activities, you can add to your package are; a Zipline Tour at Refreshing Mountain at 15% off the usual rates, $4 off the normal ticket rates at the inspiring Sight & Sound Theater and a 25% discount for a Buffet Dinner at Hershey Farms. (Please note, Hershey Farms is closed until March 7.)

If you choose to remain on your own, there are so many other local-area attractions. Check out the website of the Lancaster County Parks Department for environmental activities.
