A relaxing stay at an elegant bed and breakfast is much more enjoyable than visiting a trendy bed of breakfast, with its messy scrambled-egg mattresses and uncomfortable biscuit pillows. Sleep soundly in the lap of luxury with today's Groupon: for $115, you get a one-night stay, including hand and feet paraffin dips and a 30-minute massage, at Bellinger Rose Bed & Breakfast in Herkimer (up to a $239 value).
Built in the Civil War era and currently owned and operated by Chris and Leon Frost, this elegant Victorian home provides honeymooning couples and wayward time-travelers an idyllic nineteenth-century country retreat. Modern luxuries let you indulge idiosyncratically with a 30-minute on-site massage (a $40 value) and a hand and feet paraffin wax treatment (a $30 value) from Christyl Touch Massage. Relax among amenities, including an enclosed-porch hot tub, and then treat all five senses during a bountiful candlelit breakfast served daily from 7 a.m.–9:30 a.m. with the ear-tickling tones of live piano music. With four elegant, rose-themed rooms bedecked with antiques, guests can enjoy authentic Victorian-era surroundings, free from authentically sullen Victorian-era ghosts.
TripAdvisors give Bellinger Rose an average of 4.5 owl eyes and say:
- The breakfasts were amazing. I would recommend the french toast, My husband loved the poach eggs that he had every morning. – sbjeanine
- It was clean and roomy. We can't wait to return and just relax in the room. It had a great jacuzzi and gas fireplace. It was very peaceful. The hosts, Chris and Leon were very friendly, but not pushy. You felt like you were at home. – Bynon
