The Asa Parker House is surrounded by grand trees and blessed with proximity to state parks. The historic bed and breakfast opens its doors to travelers seeking a quiet escape. With today's Groupon, visitors can choose from Asa Parker House's four rooms, including the Sarah Louise room (a $159 value per night), which proudly features a single jacuzzi, framed by the house's original hardwood flooring. For larger parties or party-hosting aspirations, the Alice O'Brien suite (a $175 value per night) beckons curious company with three rooms flanked by French-style windows and a private porch for summertime soirees. The Isabella Parker room (a $159 value per night) provides similar comforts with a 19th-century walnut bed and marble-laden bathroom, and the Laura Rose room (a $159 value per night) tickles traditions by sporting a private double-size shower and an electric fireplace approved by five out of five time-traveling cavemen.
Regardless of roomly situations, all guests can take advantage of modern and timeless perks, including today's included, chilled bottle of wine (a $25 value). After a night of toasting the moon, the morning sun rises alongside a lavish, complimentary four-course breakfast consisting of fresh, seasonal fruits, homemade baked goods, and a single hot entree—all of which can be swiftly tweaked to meet dietary preferences. The house staff also serves up heaping helpings of wireless Internet in addition to a king's share of court time at the on-grounds tennis courts.
Asa Parker House
Established in 1856, Asa Parker House lists among the most notable examples of Greek Revival architecture in the Midwest. A pair of two-story columns borders the entryway, resembling the towering sugar maple, ash, birch, and hickory trees that abound on the property. Four guest rooms feature antique touches, such as a nineteenth century walnut bed in the lilac-hued Isabella Parker room, original hardwood flooring in the Sarah Louise room, or hieroglyphs of John Quincy Adams in the Laura Rose room. Each morning, a four-course breakfast of fresh fruit, homemade pastries, hot entrees, and freshly ground coffee greets guests in the formal dining room. The house purposefully does away with modern technology, such as televisions, phones, and laser-guided toaster ovens, though WiFi access is available and some rooms feature whirlpools or Jacuzzis.
