Forget the hand warmers and designer ski suits. Those looking to rediscover America’s more natural attractions in the fall can take advantage of significantly discounted mountain vacations. For example, Marriott Vacation Club International is offering stays at its Colorado and Utah villa resorts up to 85 percent off prime winter-season rates.
For a welcoming retreat in the mountains, each of Marriott’s spacious one- and two-bedroom villas features living and dining areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, multiple television sets and a VCR. Villas sleep four to eight guests and may also include a whirlpool tub and balcony. Studio accommodations are also available. See www.vacationclub.com.
“Travelers can experience an extraordinary villa vacation, otherwise available to just owners, on a nightly basis,” said Ed Kinney of Marriott Vacation Club International. “Whether you own or rent, the fall is a great time of year to enjoy warmer-weather mountain recreation from hiking and biking to whitewater rafting and hot-air ballooning.”
