After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $60, you get a one-night stay in a standard or plus room at the Inn at Pine Terrace in Oconomowoc (up to a $145 value).
Cast in the image of a Viennese castle, the 132-year-old Inn at Pine Terrace arrests visitors with an aristocratic opulence of yesteryear while pampering them with modern luxuries and conveniences. Each standard or plus chamber proffers an individual charm, with first- and second-floor rooms augmented by soaring ceilings, and third-floor rooms outfitted with cozy alcoves. A bevy of amenities lavish guests with private baths, cable TV, wireless internet, and in-room temperature control, and antique accents and mahogany woodwork enrich bedchambers and communal spaces alike. Guests can partake in a tranquil walk to nearby Fowler Lake, take in the sights of historic downtown Oconomowoc, or lounge about the sun room or parlor in terrycloth robes like decadent ancien regime nobility lamenting the decline of scripted television. Daily breakfast consists of a two-course gourmet meal including such delicacies as quiche, western skillet, and swedish pancakes, and weekday spreads consist of light, continental-style fare.
Proximate location to nearby attractions and picturesque scenery ushers the relaxation-seeking multitudes to the Inn at Pine Terrace, which claims to have housed such fabled guests as Mark Twain, the Anheuser and Busch families, and Ernest Borgnine’s eyebrows.
