Let the smell of gingerbread abound when you walk past Legends Cafe. View the carolers atop the fireplace in the lobby. Take a picture in front of Santa in his antique sleigh, or imagine a night in the little ski cabin outside the Deveroux Suite. Everywhere you look, there is a magical scene that will surely put you in the holiday spirit.
