Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time and hang your Stetson at The Inn at Hunt Phelan, a bed and breakfast in downtown Memphis. With today’s deal, $99 gets you one night’s stay in any available room or suite (up to a $295 value).
The Inn at Hunt Phelan is a handsome headrest for out-of-towners and in-towners alike, an antebellum mansion held together with historical architecture and invigorated by interior restorations, period furniture, and lavish décor. With today’s Groupon, visiting relatives, locally based couples, and recreational vagrants can all spend one night dappled in comfort and historical splendor. A variety of rooms are available, from the most basic 290-square-foot room with a queen-sized bed and porcelain soaking tub or whirlpool, to a larger deluxe room with a king-sized, four-poster bed and whirlpool tub. Suites also come in two flavors. The classic is 750 square feet with a separate parlor and guest room, while the private is the ultimate in southern hospitality—1,000 square feet complete with a kitchen, 1.5 baths, a washer and dryer, and more. Guests are treated to complimentary high-speed Internet access for fact-checking prior to a Civil War reenactment, a glass of champagne upon arrival, parking, and a hot or continental breakfast.
A night at The Inn at Hunt Phelan is an ideal way to spend time with an overworked significant other, curry favor with skeptical in-laws, or find both the solitude and inspiration to finally complete that blood-soaked period romance novel. The mansion was built between 1828 and 1832 and designed by Robert Mills, whose works include the Washington Monument, U.S. Treasury, and parts of the White House. During the tumultuous years of the Civil War, the inn served both as Union and Confederate headquarters at different times, and was a Union hospital from 1863 to 1865. A tunnel beneath the house was part of the Underground Railroad, allowing escaped slaves to head for freedom in Illinois. Renovated in the year 2000, The Inn at Hunt Phelan is both a beautiful place to rest and relax, and a historic home with floors trodden by U.S. presidents and Civil War soldiers alike.
Today’s deal is good for all imaginable dates. Rooms and dates are subject to availability, so act fast to book a room for Memorial Day weekend, Independence Day celebrations, or Cow Appreciation Day (July 15).
- My husband and I recently made a month long tour of America during which we stayed in over 14 establishments… The Inn at Hunt Phelen [sic] was our favourite by a clear head and shoulders. –MrandMrs-Steel, TripAdvisor
- We walked in the front door, and from that point on everything was taken care of. We even enjoyed a cocktail (on the house) out on the patio while our bags were being taken to our room...The room had a nice sitting area, a very comfortable bed, a private entrance, and the bathroom had been beautifully remodeled. – fewnfarbetween, TripAdvisor
