People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley & Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $399, you get a two-night eco-lodge stay for two in a standard room, including meals (up to a $160 value/person each night), luggage transfer (a $20 value), and gratuity, plus the use of canoes, the hot tub, and the sauna at Algonquin Wilderness Eco-Lodge, located on the southern border of Algonquin Park (up to a $778.80 value, including HST and gratuity). This Groupon expires July 31.
The Algonquin Wilderness Eco-Lodge offers an eco-friendly wilderness getaway with more than 40 kilometres of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and other seasonal adventures, paired with a wood-heated sauna and alternatively powered outdoor hot tub. Each of Algonquin’s rooms includes a double bed or two singles and evokes the charm of European mountain lodging. The common lounge unites fellow travellers recovering from technology-induced eye ticks, and power from a microhydro generator alternatively energizes the grounds. In keeping with the lodge's mission to reduce its environmental footprint, lodgers are asked to bring their own soap, shampoo, and guide for sustainably harvesting wild pillows. This Groupon also includes luggage transfers for two, carting suitcases stuffed with packing peanuts straight to guest rooms from the parking lot lying 2.3 kilometres away.
