What You'll Get
The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Dine in a home more luxurious than mom’s basement with today’s Groupon: for $210, you get a one-night stay in a junior suite, a bottle of champagne, and breakfast for two at Woodlands Inn in Summerville (up to a $430 value). Groupon customers may upgrade to an executive suite for an additional $40, subject to availability.
A Forbes Five-Star recipient, a AAA Five-Diamond award winner for both lodging and dining, and one of the world's best hotels according to Travel + Leisure magazine, the 1906-built Woodlands Inn treats guests to old-fashioned southern hospitality within the walls of an elegant, neo-Georgian-style mansion. Once the bedrooms for the family of railroad baron Robert W. Parsons, who built the mansion using only a chisel and parts from old airplanes, all junior suites feature flat-screen TVs, a Bose CD stereo, and wireless Internet access. Second-floor junior suites boast an oversized whirlpool tub, a king bed, and gas fireplace upon request, and third-floor junior suites include a king bed, a sitting area with a queen-size sofa sleeper, and a private bath.
Ring room service and sup a bottle of bubbly before falling into a blissful slumber (a $30 value), and then awake to a hearty breakfast of two à la carte entrées of your choice with juice and coffee or tea (up to a $60 value, tax and gratuity included). Sample the classic eggs benedict with applewood-smoked canadian bacon or the crispy cinnamon brioche french toast and fresh local berries with Vermont maple syrup. The Woodlands Inn mansion boasts red-clay tennis courts, as well as a heated outdoor pool and 42 acres replete with palmettos, oaks, magnolias, and trees that naturally emit smooth jazz.
