After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos. For $60, you and a special someone get one night's stay and breakfast at Market Street Inn Bed & Breakfast in Jeffersonville, Indiana (up to a $209 value). You'll also get 20% off your next visit (for the discount, your next visit must be booked on the day of your stay). There's no buy limit, though you may only use one per visit.
Completely restored with modern amenities in 2005, the stately Second Empire Mansion (originally built in 1881) boasts 11 fireplaces, two dining rooms, a large third-floor rooftop party deck with a garden, a front porch, a surprisingly well-mannered poltergeist, and an antique and gift shop. Upon check-in, you'll be ensconced in a '90s sitcom-themed guest room outfitted with high-speed Internet, TVs with DVD/VCR and cable, bathrobes, and more. Three suites, meanwhile, amp up the luxury with amenities such as double Jacuzzis, separate showers, flat-screen plasma TVs, wet bars, sitting areas with a couch, and mysterious bidets. If you get bored playing life-sized games of Clue inside Market Street Inn's 10,000 square feet of space, take a stroll down to the nearby restaurants and wine shops or the Ohio River just a block away.
Come morning, you'll get to feast on a chef-prepared gourmet breakfast before heading home. Along with the perennial fresh fruit platters, coffee cake, scones, hot drinks, juices, bacon, and hot entrees, you might also find chef specialties such as french toast with buttery peach-almond sauce, German puff pancakes with strawberries and cream, lavender bread, leek and mozzarella soufflés, and more.
A weekend spent at the Market Street Inn will leave you feeling so relaxed, romanced, and food-filled that you'll completely forget about the time-traveling assassin who necessitated your escape there in the first place. Guest rooms and suites are subject to availability, so call ahead to reserve the Seinfeld suite and mention your Groupon on the phone.
The Garden Hideaway room is not available with this Groupon.
