Envious of impassive dolls in dream houses, humans constructed hotels to one-up the inanimates' hold on luxury and miniature bidets. Make your reservation with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a one-night stay in any room at Lied Lodge & Conference Center (up to a $139 value) in Nebraska City.
Boasting 144 comfortable hideaways amid 260 verdant acres, Lied Lodge & Conference Center showers its guests with luxurious amenities and expansive arboretum or hazelnut-orchard views. Four room types pepper the lodge’s halls, with vaulted ceilings sheltering the decadent Denver mattresses and plumped NuDown pillows of fourth-floor king rooms. Queen rooms offer two queen-sized beds for cross-mattress Double Dutch, along with exposed douglas-fir timbers. Lodgers who bunk in patio rooms can traverse through french doors that open onto private verandas near the Olympic-sized pool, and parlor rooms facilitate romantic trysts and leftover reheatings with a loveseat, mini refrigerator, and microwave. Each morning in the hotel lobby, complimentary fair-trade coffee pours like office secrets from an intoxicated coworker. Caffeinated lodgers can release energy on trails and treadmills or repose tranquilly in the sauna or jacuzzi.
Lied Lodge & Conference Center converts greenbacks to environmental stewardship with each reservation. Lobby timbers come from responsible logging plantations, stone fireplaces emit minimal smoke, and in-room recycling bins invite guests to preserve the planet. Though not included in today's deal, lodgers may nibble nature-inspired, local, sustainable fare in the Timber Dining Room, explore the Arbor Day Farm, or indulge in a spa service.
