What You'll Get
When the last room at an inn had to be shared by a canoeing outdoorsman and a traveling pasta saleswoman, the term canoodling was born. Enjoy an etymologically romantic escape with today's Groupon: for $189, you get a two-night stay and a champagne welcome at Chalet Suzanne in Lake Wales, Florida, plus two adult admissions to the Bok Tower Gardens, also in Lake Wales (a $478 total value).
Chalet Suzanne's scenic 100-acre sanctuary has harbored lovebirds, lustbirds, and human-shaped butterflies for more than 70 years. Browse the roster of relaxing rooms, each rich with antiques and complemented by air conditioning and a private bath to ensure utmost comfort and calm. Steep in serenity with views overlooking Lake Suzanne, or cast your eyes on the nearby airplane landing strip to watch as other guests arrive on bareback griffin. Upon arrival, you and your getaway companion will get to clink chilled glasses of Veuve Clicquot (or a comparable champagne) before exploring Chalet Suzanne's enchanting alcoves featuring five elegant dining rooms, a gift shop, ceramic shop, pool, spa, and citrus grove. In addition to two nights at the chalet, guests can break for the nearby Bok Tower Gardens, a historic hideaway replete with flowers, nature trails, and the sweet carillon serenades of the famous Singing Tower, which like most musical apparatus is more than 200 feet tall.
Come morning, mouths can wake up slowly by snuggling a country breakfast from Chalet Suzanne's award-winning menu. Famous for gourmet soups canned on-site, Chalet Suzanne can fend off both hunger and gravity for traveling astronauts.
Though Chalet Suzanne offers midweek discounts on its website, this Groupon still offers the best deal available and is valid for any day of the week.
