After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos at the Alaskan Inn in Ogden:
- For $88, you get a one-night stay Monday through Thursday (up to a $179 value).
- For $99, you get a one-night stay Friday through Sunday (up to a $195 value).
Featuring 23 Arctic-inspired suites and cabins, the Alaskan Inn nestles weary travelers in a charming cocoon of comfort, in which to while away a cold winter's evening. All rooms feature a jacuzzi or oversized jetted tub for orca-uncles and other aquatic in-laws. Hungry hide-awayers receive a hearty breakfast for two served at the time of their choosing. Take your pick from 11 distinctively themed cabins, such as the foresty Misty Fjords, the cuddly Kodiak, or the perpetually festive North Pole, complete with a Christmas tree and a set of elevated toy-train tracks. Slumber junkies can also choose from 12 different suites: expose your sight spheres to the brightly lit Northern Lights, snowshoe your way to the Iditarod, or climb the summit of the Eagles Nest and stalk your room's big-screen TV with beady, emotionless eyes.

hough it rests amid the pine trees of Utah's Ogden Canyon, Alaskan Inn draws inspiration from the tundra and snow-capped peaks located even further north. The inn's 23 suites and cabins feature arctic-themed décor, such as all-white canopy beds, shimmering satin sheets, and drifting ice floes. Some rooms take the motif even farther: In the Northern Lights suite, a light show replicates the dancing glow of the Aurora Borealis, and the Bears Den suite creates a cave-like atmosphere with stuffed black bears and a waterfall. The 11 cabins, which sit separate from the main log lodge, are more modestly decorated, though each boasts a private shower. All rooms come with jetted jacuzzi tubs and big-screen TVs.
Breakfast, included with every stay, is made hot and à la carte with a choice of entree and two sides. Alaskan Inn also provides complimentary spiced sparkling cider and fresh-baked cookies as a snack for guests and an off-duty Santa Claus.
As Alaskan Inn lies only 15 minutes from downtown Ogden, guests can easily travel to the town’s numerous restaurants and shops. The inn’s close proximity to the Ogden River in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest also makes it a hub for outdoor fun, with easy access to hiking trails.
