Statistically, the home is the place you're most likely to fall asleep under a running lawn mower or spontaneously combust while trying to slow dance with a running lawn mower. Find a snowy safe haven with today's Groupon: for $99 you get a one-night stay in an Empire Builder room, two one-day ski rentals, and a welcome gift of two hand-painted wine glasses and a bottle of wine (a $219.90 total value) at Izaak Walton Inn, located on the border of Glacial National Park in Essex.
A National Historic Landmark, Izaak Walton Inn is home to a friendly staff that warmly hosts guests in a quaint lodge with a Swiss motif. Ensconced in wood paneling and American railway décor, the Empire Builder room can accommodate up to three guests with a queen bed and a relaxation-inducing futon. The staff maintains a devout fidelity to the era in which the lodge was built, eschewing modern hotel devices, such as telephones, televisions, and teleprompters. After depositing your luggage, sink a pair of eyeballs into the visually delicious mountain vistas of Glacial National Park, where ski rental and passes entitle you to whisk through 33 kilometers of treasured trails accessible to skiers of all skill levels.
