What You'll Get
Even a brief vacation can provide a much-needed reprieve from daily routines, much like wearing two right shoes or taking a different route to the alarm clock. Mix things up with today's Groupon to The Society House in Charleston, SC. Choose between the following options:
- For $350, you get a one-night stay in a one- or two-bedroom luxury suite (up to a $499 value), a carriage ride (up to a $46 value), and $75 worth of regional dinner fare at High Cotton or Slightly North of Broad (up to a $620 total value).
- For $550, you get a two-night stay in a one- or two-bedroom luxury suite (up to a $998 value), a carriage ride (up to a $46 value), and $75 worth of regional dinner fare at High Cotton or Slightly North of Broad (up to a $1,119 combined value).
The Society House hides modern suites within its 200-year-old frame, offering visitors the regality of a luxury home situated within walking distance of shops, historic landmarks, and ancient gardens. One- and two-bedroom abodes house such comforts as queen-size beds, leather pullout sofas, and satellite television on large, flat-panel screens along with city views on large, flat-panel windows. Kitchens help boost the cozy feel with a full supply of kitchenware tucked within cabinets and below granite countertops, as well as refrigerators predecorated with the artwork and report cards of especially intelligent children.
A ride from Palmetto Carriage ferries guests through the city in a 19th-century-style carriage, led by a guide who combines historical knowledge of neighborhoods with important knowledge of 21st-century city maps. You'll join a shaded caravan of sightseers drawn by two noble steeds through 25–30 downtown blocks, soundtracked by the wit and expertise of the charioteer.
After gallivanting through the city, guests can retire to a choice of two nearby southern-inspired restaurants to cash in their $75 dinner credit. High Cotton arms a gracious, knowledgeable staff with a menu that draws from land, sea, and dreams. Pique palates with a creative entree such as a pork chop tricked out in shaved brussels sprouts, bacon lardons, and crawfish-smoked bacon hollandaise ($26). Or head to Slightly North of Broad, an eclectic bistro that shares in the seasonal harvests of local farmers, fishermen, and fork manufacturers. The menu awakens torpid tongues with plates such as a grilled trout with herb quinoa, grilled asparagus, and basil pesto ($23). Diners at both restaurants can quaff pairings chosen from well-curated wine and cocktail programs.
