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: for $79, you get a one-night stay at Ashworth by the Sea, located in Hampton, New Hampshire (a $159 value).
Ashworth by the Sea is a picturesque getaway spot, enhanced by views of the ocean and imbued with a relaxing, traditional New England vibe. Rooms can fit two city escapees or suburban fugitives, and may come with two queen or one king-sized bed, plus a balcony ideal for silent, romantic stargazing or pedantically pointing out made-up constellations. On the night of your arrival, you’ll receive a $20 voucher toward dinner for two in Breakers Restaurant, which features coast-appropriate fare such as the lobster roll ($18) or the Atlantic haddock beach special ($10.50); the next morning’s meal will come with a $10 voucher for a breakfast of $20 or more. You and your significant other, family member, or strange traveling companion with a handcuff bracelet can enjoy the heated waves of Ashworth’s indoor pool, or bask in the electric glow of the wireless Internet.
Ashworth features a large sun deck that overlooks the Atlantic, offering both the natural tranquility of a major ocean and a great view of the place from whence the Great Old Ones will one day unspeakably emerge. Perfect for a romantic evening, or an exceedingly formal one spent discussing the aesthetic dimensions of the Romantics, Ashworth by the Sea provides genuine relaxation and thoroughly attentive customer service.
