9. Pillar and Post, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont.
Throw a snowball in the picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and you'll probably hit a festively festooned hotel, inn or B&B that could make this list. So we picked the one with the most appealing seasonal package. Starting at $148 per person, the Pillar and Post's "Welcome to Winter" includes an overnight stay, a bottle of Niagara wine in the guestroom, and dinner for two in one of the luxury inn's three superb restaurants. Tack on a vintage stone massage and a soak in the outdoor hot springs (pictured) at the in-house 100 Fountain Spa — hailed as North America's best — and everything will get merry and bright in a hurry.

More proposed areas await congressional approval, including the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana and the Columbine-Hondo in New Mexico.
