While enjoying breakfast on the house, it's crucial to retain a firm footing on your bacon shingles lest you slide into a syrupy gutter of french toast. Today's Groupon allows you to rest easy and begin your day with a more grounded meal: for $62, you get a one-night stay in a traditional room at The Lafayette Inn bed and breakfast in College Hill Historic District.
Built as a Georgian-style mansion in 1895, The Lafayette Inn exudes a restored antique charm with 18 romantic rooms, each boasting their own private bathroom. Cozy up in a double-occupancy traditional room, adorned with classic furnishings, a queen-size bed, desk, television, and the occasional skylight to observe the gesturing of avian mimes. On weekday mornings, rise to a buffet table of homemade cake, bagels, and muffin faces served from 7 to 9 a.m. by an attentive, friendly staff. Made-to-order omelets and belgian waffles are served hotter than any Tuesday night book club. Weekend guests can unwind to the same menu plus an evolving spread of bacon, stratas, or quiches from 8 to 10 a.m.
Between meals and naps, lounge in the stately parlor space, where the fireplace roars to the pluck of the baby grand piano and a quiet game of war elephant polo. Walk to dozens of lively restaurants and shops in downtown Easton or tour historic Lafayette College, which is a short trot away from the inn's wraparound porch.
