Winter/Off-Season Training - confused

So, I am wrapping my first season as a roadie and am very pleased with my progress but am really confused as to what to do for the next few months. I have read the horror stories of people that trained 'too hard' during the winter and then blew their season. I understand I need some down time both mentally and physically but not sure how much. I am not a racer and did not race but rode 100-160 miles per week consistently since last april and followed a training plan for a specific goal (improving century performance) and tracked performance over the summer.

So now what? Stop for a month, continue as is (and risk what). Get a coach. . .Very confused. . .
