What You'll Get
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 $237, you get a two-night stay for two in a room at the rustically luxurious Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls plus a bottle of wine with two etched wine glasses, a fruit and cheese plate, a select registry book, cookies, and a complimentary full country breakfast upon waking (a combined value of up to $435).
The ambience at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls recalls simpler times, when cookies grew on trees. To this day, the Inn’s cookie-picking staff harvests fresh cookies to greet guests upon arrival. The Inn’s guest rooms are outfitted with tasteful antique furnishings and rustic finishes. Without the distraction of modern contraptions, such as wireless radio and televisions, you can focus on the natural attractions surrounding the Inn, which abuts miles of Hocking Hills State Park, perfect for hiking or exploration by horseback, canoe, all-terrain vehicle, or ferret.
With your appetite piqued by hours of intrepid traipsing, dine at the Inn’s restaurant and watch chef Anthony Schulz whip up your butternut-squash ravioli ($19) from the open kitchen. For those who prefer pampering, you can still make a date with the local mud by visiting the spa for a soothing, 75-minute mud wrap and satin body scrub ($115–$135).
However you choose to spend your days, make your nights memorable with a pajama-clad movie party or snuggle the evening away whilst dictating your memoirs to your biographer/significant other over a bottle of wine with fruit and cheese pairings. A full complimentary breakfast will ease your atmospheric re-entry to real life.
- Perched on the side of a hill, our cottage was near enough to others that you could see them but certainly far enough away that we felt we had enough privacy. Entering the front door, I was quickly charmed by the warm sun-lit yellow walls, the comfortable chairs and the windows overlooking an incredible view. – Rosanna Scott, Columbus Parent
- the Inn is designed with visitors' comfort and needs in mind. While the gas log fireplace was quite welcomed after a chilly, late fall, Hocking Hills hike—one of my favorite aspects of the Jasmine Cottage was a little journal—instead of an unassuming "name and address" style guest book. This journal provides a "diary" where guests are able to write a journal entry of each personal stay. My husband and I read entries from guests visiting from around the world. – Angela Thompson, Associated Content
