What You'll Get
Inns immerse guests in the comforts of home as effectively as a childhood blanket or a pair of enchanted ruby slippers filled with chicken-noodle soup. Escape to a magical world of luxury with today’s Groupon: for $162, you get a one-night stay for up to six people at Creekstone Cottage (up to a $325 value).
Known locally as the "Gingerbread House," the 1,400-square-foot Creekstone Cottage started out as a two-room log cabin built from local oak trees in the early 20th century. The current Creekstone Cottage was erected around the original cabin's walls in 1935, and the Columbia Historic Preservation Commission listed the cottage as a Notable Historic Property in 2004. Today, the storybook inn features three charmingly furnished bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a fireplace. Guests can linger in the screened-in patio, or chase Mother Goose along the dirt paths through the surrounding gardens lined with flowers and shrubs.
Creekstone Cottage is located near the campuses of the University of Missouri, Stephen's College, and Columbia College. Less than 10 miles from the cottage, guests can visit Rock Bridge Memorial State Park with 750 acres of hiking and biking trails through the Gans Creek Wild Area. Visitors can explore the massive cave system at the Devil's Icebox, which is replete with sinkholes, a subterranean stream, and pitchforks set on ice.
