A trip to the country offers a relaxing reprieve from hectic schedules, frantic commutes, and endless debates over the alleged existence of cows. Boost your bovine acumen with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a $199 gift certificate to use toward lodging at HideAway Country Inn in Bucyrus, located in Mid-Ohio.
With luxurious origins dating back to 1938, HideAway Country Inn nestles guests in a historic mansion surrounded by 6 acres of scenic gardens. With 12 distinctively designed suites to choose from, guests can plan a romantic weekend in the Carpenter Room, luxuriating in the queen-size bed, reenacting miniature naval battles in the heart-shaped jacuzzi, and enjoying amenities such as satellite TV and fresh breakfast delivered to you each morning ($159+/night). Visitors who upgrade to the Hunter's Den Loft can bask in the glow of the stone fireplace or cedar-accented whirlpool, then spy on the secret clan of nut-peddling squirrels from the comforts of the suite's rocking-chair-equipped porch ($289/night). Hideaway Inn's other themed lodging lairs include the chromatically fitting Cherry Suite, Out of Africa Loft Suite, Tree House Suite, and the airborne Balloon Filled with Honey Suite.
Guests can meander to the wine cellar for tastings or toward a multitude of nearby attractions, such as state parks, golf courses, museums, and in-town race tracks. Although not included in today's deal, guests can bask in the ambience of delicious dining options from chef Michael Thompson and soothing spa services.
