Staying in a hotel evokes childhood memories of playing house, without the responsibility of cleaning up after destructive imaginary rock bands. Have a real-life adventure with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a one-night stay in a standard room at Mammoth Creek Inn in Mammoth Lakes (up to a $190 value).
Mountain masters shake off the snow and soak in relaxation in the scenic, recently renovated digs at Mammoth Creek Inn. During a one-night stay, visitors can partake in the boutique hotel's myriad amenities, including an indoor jacuzzi and European dry sauna, billiard room, and fireplace-warmed lobbies.
A standard room can be customized for various pairs, including couples, friends, or vacationing parallel lines, by requesting a king, queen, or two twin beds. Rinse sweat from the day's skiing adventures or Scrabble marathons in the glassed-in spa shower settled under exposed timber ceilings and coated in crisp, white tile. Guests can fall asleep to the clean-cut images of a flat-screen HDTV and use free WiFi throughout the hotel to email pets back home, or pets in the room, if they've opted for one of the hotel's pet-friendly spaces. Early risers toast with a cup of brew from the in-room coffee maker or clink bagels at the complimentary continental breakfast.
Mammoth Inn is a woolly elephant's tusk-slide from ski- and board-able mountainsides, and it offers a complimentary shuttle service to the lifts. The apex averse can choose from a bevy of other nearby activities, including horseback riding, biking, and art gallery explorations. The particularly adventurous could make the 2.5-hour trip to Yosemite to research cowboy-hat-wearing ancestors named after the park.
