What You'll Get
Statistically, 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 safe haven with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a two-night stay for two (up to a $298 value) at Mansion View Inn Bed & Breakfast in the Old West End.
Built in 1887, Mansion View Inn delivers refined quaintness with its ornate Victorian décor, dark wood interiors, cozy quarters, a relaxed sitting room, and a drawing room. Four bedrooms lure guests into their charming confines for a two-night getaway of old-world hotel style. The Secor Bridal Room warms wandering hearts under the gentle glows of a chandelier, and features exquisitely crafted plaster molding and windows that admit frolicking splashes of light at sunrise. The Libbey Room's bright, cheerful interior is wrapped in flowery wallpaper and aims three large windows at the Victorian gardens, while The Reynolds Room comprises darker tones, antiques, and a clawfoot tub. Intimate and dainty, the third-story Ludwig Room provides lodgers with views of downtown, and its kitchenette allows guests to be the supreme lords of their own teatime.
Each of Mansion View's rooms is wired for WiFi, and the bathrooms are conveniently supplied with enough grooming products to ward off frightening smells in the night. After a night of respite or a sleepless session of thumbing through books and watching movies, boarders breakfast on Chef Brenda's masterful creations, then venture outdoors to visit various antiques shops, malls, restaurants, or the nearby art museum.
