A weekend getaway whisks away the stresses of the workweek, especially since the recent institution of the Mayan calendar has enforced 73-day-long workweeks. Leave the weeklong tension behind with today’s Groupon: for $179, you get a two-night package for two people at Flat Creek Lodge in East Georgia (a $440 total value). The package includes the following:
- Two-night lodge stay (a $350 value)
- $40 credit for dinner in the main dining room
- Daily country breakfast for two
- A bottle of wine and a cheese plate upon arrival (a $50 value)
- Access to fishing in the catfish pond
- Access to bicycles<p>
A hospitable staff welcomes guests to Flat Creek Lodge, an eco-conscious hunting and fishing resort. Traveling companions can launch their lavish retreat with samples of artisanal cheeses produced onsite and praised by Savannah magazine, a glass of wine, or a quick game of Pin the Tail on the Corresponding Stuffed Animal while settling into a rustic lodge room. Themed quarters are decorated with the works of local artists, and each has an entrance to the veranda, which overlooks the lustrous waters of the main lodge lake.
Over the course of a two-night stay, guests can fish in the catfish pond or, for an extra $50 fee, angle for bass, bluegill, or bottled compliments in more than 240 acres of ponds, stocked with creatures indigenous to Georgia. The kitchen can custom-prepare the fish you catch, or diners may choose from a seasonal menu of dishes comprising organic ingredients culled from the lodge’s orchards and greenhouses. In addition to bicycling and fishing, the resort presents opportunities for paintball and relaxing spa treatments.
