Relaxing in a full-amenity resort is a soothing respite for vacationers and their homes, giving abodes a much-needed break from pretending their washing machines are Olympic-size pools. Give your house the night off with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay, $40 worth of casual American cuisine and drinks, and a bottle of wine or champagne at Lake Tarpon Resort in Palm Harbor (up to a $259 total value).
Lake Tarpon Resort rests its laurels on a picturesque canal and boasts personable staff, spacious rooms, casual dining, evening entertainment, and a walking-distance location from nearby hotspots and bass-fishing havens. Depending on availability at the time of reservation, Groupon holders can stay in any of the resort's double nonsmoking rooms, queen or king suites, or a king jacuzzi suite (a $69.99–$199 value depending on room and season). Take in sweeping views of the palm-treed vicinity, or hole up with your room's high-speed Internet access and ironing board that doubles as a surfboard for your shirt.
The $40 voucher to the resort's Dockside Sports Bar & Grille lets guests indulge in delightfully laidback nosh. The homemade chili hurtles a spicy punch at taste buds ($3.95/cup; $5.95/bowl) and the chicken-alfredo pizza sates meal pie cravings with fresh, distinctive ingredients ($7.95–$14.95). Dig into the Cuban wrap packed with ham, pork, swiss cheese, and pickles ($7.95), or invite the Fra Diablo's seafood entourage of linguine, shrimp, clams, and mussels to perform their flavorful tabletop cancan routine in piquant marinara sauce ($14.95).
Live bands play at the resort on Fridays and Saturdays, and guests can take advantage of tiki-bar service on the weekends (weather permitting) or pontoon-boat rentals (for an additional cost) for ultimate area perusal. After a full day of festivities, retire to your room and pop open a bottle of wine or champagne (a $20 value) to toast to the multihued sunset and your new friendship with the local band of gossiping barnacles.
