Hotels give humans a shelter during international balloon races, a place to canoodle far from the watchful eye of the telescreen, and a temporary home when the real one is being fumigated for witches. Put these palaces to whatever purpose you prefer with today's Groupon: for $189, you get a two-night stay (up to a $378 value) at the Woodward’s Inn of Lincoln in Lincoln, New Hampshire.
The Woodward's Inn of Lincoln, tucked away against the lush backdrop of the White Mountains, is a 56-room inn that complements its clean, comfortable accommodations with a friendly, hospitable staff. Settle in for two nights, with up to four guests, in the family suite, which includes a master bedroom with a queen or two double beds, a living room with a sleep sofa, and a kitchenette. In between cannonballs at the indoor and outdoor pools, you'll also be free to hike the covered bridges and waterfalls of Flume Gorge, ski the slopes at Franconia Notch state park, or watch grizzlies can-can during the live bear show at Clark's Trading Post. After stomping and romping through the town, retreat back to your quaint accommodations and snuggle up by the seasonal gas fireplace while surfing the complimentary WiFi for videos of statuary gone wild. Check-in is at 3 p.m. and checkout is at 11 a.m.
