What You'll Get
For $199, today's side deal gets you one night for up to two people at the Architect's Inn, a bed and breakfast on Historic Hill in Newport, Rhode Island (up to a $399 value). You'll get a large room or a small room during the season (May 1–October 31) or off-season (November 1–April 20), subject to availability. With rates fluctuating throughout seasons, guests can apply the $399 value of their Groupon toward a large room if it costs more and pay the difference.
Nestled on a quiet residential street in the heart of historic Newport, the Architect's Inn began its life in 1873, as the private residence of prominent local architect George Champlin Mason. Fashioned after the Swiss chalets Mason encountered during his travels, the 23-room space gained early notoriety for its ornate exterior woodwork and in-house yodeling goatherd concerti. Since its moonlit transfiguration to a bed and breakfast in 1996, the elegant Victorian mansion has entertained travelers in its five luxury guest rooms and suites. Period furnishings and antiques fill the lofty sleeping quarters with enough authentic 19th-century ambience to convince guests that prolonged bed rest is an acceptable treatment for maladies of the spleen. Visitors who wish to continue a velvet-trimmed descent into Victoriana can take advantage of the inn's close proximity to the Newport Society's stately mansions, while would-be seadogs can amble over to the nearby Cliff Walk for a salty view of the mighty Atlantic.
All guest rooms feature a cornucopia of luxury amenities, including afternoon tea and refreshments, private baths, fireplaces, free off-street parking, at least 600-thread-count linens, and more. The deal also includes a full breakfast of mostly organic, seasonal, gourmet fare on the breezy, garden-facing porch in warm weather or by the cozy fire when Old Man Winter books a room. The kitchen will readily cater to guests' special dietary needs, be it gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, or Morlock. Extras, such as a wine tasting and tour, may be included with rooms valued at $250 or more, but are subject to availability. Deluxe or standard rooms are not eligible for extras.
This Groupon does not include tax and is subject to Architect's Inn's cancellation and other policies.
