A relaxing stay at an elegant bed-and-breakfast is much more enjoyable than visiting a trendy bed of breakfast, with its messy scrambled-egg mattresses and uncomfortable biscuit pillows. Savor a sturdier sojourn with today’s Groupon: for $125, you get a one-night weekday getaway for two at Foxtrot Bed and Breakfast Inn (a $255 total value). The getaway includes:
- One-night stay for two in a deluxe king room Sunday–Thursday (a $185 value)
- Two souvenir crystal champagne flutes (a $50 value)
- Bottle of sparkling cider (a $20 value)
- Three-course gourmet breakfast
- Evening dessert<p>
Innkeepers Bob and Shirley Price welcome travelers into the Foxtrot Bed and Breakfast Inn to relax amid stunning views of the Great Smoky Mountains in a forested hideaway lofted 1,000 feet above street level in Gatlinburg. A chalet-style cedar-and-stone façade invites guests in to relax in plush parlor armchairs nestled near a fireplace. Guests then head to either the Cherokee Orchard room, with a behemoth four-poster king bed draped with a sumptuous gold and scarlet bedspread or the Roaring Forks room, whose king-size sleigh bed invites snuggling after dips in the in-suite jacuzzi.
Wireless Internet is ladled into rooms along a series of pulleys, and TVs come outfitted with VCRs and DVD players. Rich wood furniture and sylvan artwork hint at the arboreal escape of the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A few miles away, Gatlinburg’s Parkway abounds with shops, restaurants, and attractions such as the town’s own space needle. The innkeepers can also provide guests with discounted tickets to the Dollywood family amusement park.
The wafting aroma of a three-course gourmet breakfast entices well-rested guests more surely than a bewigged Bugs Bunny entices Elmer Fudd. Plates prepared by a professional chef brim with offerings such as fried apple pancakes trimmed with bacon, baked brie splashed with cranberry chutney, and white-chocolate bread pudding.
