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 $90, you get a one-night stay in a deluxe room at a historic bed-and-breakfast, The Brentwood B&B (up to a $175 value). You can also upgrade to a luxury suite (valued up to $235 a night) for $25 more.
As you cross a century-old bridge on the tree-lined road winding up to The Brentwood’s columned brick estate, you’ll feel a bygone atmosphere of elegant sophistication splatter onto your tuxedo T-shirt. While checking in at the traditional southern mansion's formal parlor, guests can pretend they've traveled back in time by fanning themselves with iPads on the shady porch's rocking chairs and languidly commenting about the weather and the latest Internet memes. Your deluxe room will include either a king or queen bed with a private bath and views of gardens, streams, or hillside scenery (the luxury suite includes a double jacuzzi, walk-in shower, and large sitting area). Once you've finished goggling at the assortment of traditional American and European furnishings sprinkled throughout The Brentwood’s 15,000-square-foot mansion, feel free to soak in Gilchrest and Soames bath lotions and soaps, sashay around the suite in a plush dressing robe, or rehearse entire Tennessee Williams plays with a lover or trusted UPS deliveryman. If a spirit of adventure starts itching, the helpful staff at The Brentwood will help guests scratch it with many suggested attractions in and around Nashville, such as historic locations, shopping, restaurants, and sports.
After a long, passionate night of carefully counting the individual threads in the spectacularly soft bed linens, The Brentwood’s chef Lisa will stuff you with southern hospitality in the form of a three-course gourmet breakfast whose board of fare changes daily. As you nap away the afternoon, Lisa will also thoughtfully prop your head with pillows of fresh-baked cookies and brownies. By the time you leave The Brentwood B&B, you will feel so mellowed and freshly romanced, you'll barely mind that your neighbor's bagpipe jam band still hasn't finished its first song. Rooms are subject to availability, so call ahead to reserve your room and mention your Groupon on the phone.
Ninety-five percent of TripAdvisors recommend The Brentwood B&B, with most giving it a full five stars.
- Near all that Nashville has to offer without having the noise of the big city. The three course breakfast was a scrumptious and delightful part of our stay. – FJDriver
- Lisa and her husband manage to find the perfect balance for B&B hosts: always there when you want them to be, but never, ever intrusive. – Cartaphilus
