People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $144, you get a one-night retreat at Camden on the Lake (up to a $288 value) in Lake Ozark.
Guests can venture to Camden on the Lake via car or boat to enjoy upscale resort amenities such as an open-air sand-volleyball court, a salon and spa, and an outdoor swimming pool with a swim-up bar. For one night, Groupon buyers will occupy a luxurious suite boasting a fully furnished kitchenette, flat-screen TV, and balcony with a vantage point that allows eyeballs to reach out and high-five a breathtaking view of the surrounding Lake of the Ozarks (up to a $233 value). Following dawn-crack, up to two mouths can nosh on breakfast fare under H. Toad's wood-lined cathedral ceiling (a $25 value) before embarking on a day of fun and relaxation with 20% off services at Surdyke Boat & Jet Ski rental and Copper Door Spa.
Guests will also receive a $30 credit toward souvenirs or forgotten items, such as swimsuits, toothbrushes, and dreamcatchers at Toad Cove Market, or toward live music and pub grub at H. Toad's entertainment complex. Send the blackened grouper sandwich for a swim down a famished throat stream ($13) or scarf down the sweet-potato-fry-flanked jalapeño and chipotle burger in hopes of roaring cartoon flames ($12).
