Since most of our family is traveling for the holidays, and we haven’t yet taken our honeymoon (we got married in October), we thought we’d take a trip ourselves. But we could use some recommendations for someplace to go.

Here’s what we’re looking for:
-Driving distance from San Diego/Orange County. We’re having dinner with family in Newport Beach on Christmas Eve, and would drive directly from there to check in that night. (we live in north San Diego County and our definition of driving distance is several hours, we're comfortable with long drives)
-We’re looking to go someplace that has snow. We’re not planning on skiing, just relaxing inside and having a ‘white Christmas’ in a nice resort-style place.
-Good restaurants in/around the place we’d stay. Other inside fun things like museums, bookstores, and the like a big plus.
-Massage on-site. We’re expecting a baby in February, and stress has been kind of high, so we’re looking to take some ‘us time’.
Basically, we’re looking for the up in the mountains version of someplace like the Madonna Inn – mid-range price, nice amenities, and a place to relax for four or five days.
