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.

  • Price: $1.35 million
  • Beds and baths: 4 and 3
  • Square feet: 2,932
  • Discount: 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.
