What You'll Get
Though New England's naturally occurring bed and breakfast inns are poorly understood by biologists, there is widespread agreement that they seem to congregate around syrup reservoirs. Observe this relaxing phenomenon with today's Groupon: for $228, you get one night in a fireplace room, a New Hampshire welcome basket, a spa basket, a two-course dinner for two, two glasses of champagne, and homemade chocolate truffles at Adair Country Inn in Bethlehem, New Hampshire (up to a $456 value).
Adair Country Inn's 200 stately acres, hospitably maintained by innkeepers Ilja and Brad Chapman, grant city-escapees an elegant taste of a simpler, more moose-adjacent life. Built in 1927 as a father's wedding gift to his daughter, the inn's rustic fireplace rooms hearken to the bucolic days before phones and televisions, yet accurately maintain the era's then-untapped wireless network (up to a $245 value). Lounge in front of a cast-iron stove fireplace with a close companion, indulging in the included homemade truffles and champagne (a $35 combined value) before heading down to the dining room where, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday through Monday, Chef Orlo prepares a two-course meal to your specifications (a $66 value).
Guests may spot moose, bears, and other forest folk as they traipse along White Mountain ridges, ensconce themselves in bubbles from the luxurious spa basket—filled with foot products and either a facial or body scrub (a $45 value), or break their addiction to love on the outdoor tennis court. The take-home New Hampshire welcome basket prevents mountain memories from fading with a bounty of maple syrup, local jams, maple cookies, and a stuffed toy moose or black bear (a $65 value).
