One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $44, you get an old-fashioned picnic for two with hand-dipped chocolates and a countryside scavenger hunt at MD Resort Bed & Breakfast (a $97 value).

MD Resort Bed & Breakfast's 37 acres of open fields, lush trees, and colorful flowers have transformed this working ranch into a popular backdrop for relaxing getaways. Picnickers can choose a picnic site close to a pecan orchard, the swimming pool, or in a garden setting. Al fresco baskets reveal a Chef's Choice picnic lunch, accompanied by hand-dipped chocolates ideal for feeding to a loved one, or for devouring after distracting a loved one with claims of a rare-bird sighting. The countryside scavenger hunt sends clue seekers on a leisurely stroll through the resort's scenic grounds to track printed clues that lead to hidden landmarks and overlooked aerobic exercise.

MD Resort Bed & Breakfast suggests that patrons bring their cameras and video cameras to document their relaxing daytrip, or possibly to capture a glimpse of one of the Aurora alien's relatives. The grounds also host a variety of corporate picnics, family reunions, and romantic overnight getaways. Groups that want to visit together are encouraged to have one person purchase all tickets.

MD Resort

Built as an outgrowth of the Mueller and Davis’s boisterous family reunions, the MD Resort has grown into a bustling guest ranch that serves as a bed and breakfast, wedding destination, and family-reunion center. Horses and miniature donkeys graze in the green pastures of the 37-acre working ranch, alongside an American buffalo nicknamed Biscuit due to his habit of noshing on breakfast leftovers. Beyond the stables and pens, a hammock and old-fashioned tree swings sway in the open fields, and inside chefs cook up a steaming homemade breakfast each morning and serve it in a wood-furnished dining room. Guests can relax in a pet-friendly German room accented with European touches, or retire to a queen-size four-poster bed in the Victorian Lace room. Guests can sample the muscle-soothing skills of the in-house massage therapist or plant themselves outside for an afternoon picnic, being careful to heed Biscuit’s wine and cheese recommendations made through the Morse code–stomping of his hooves.
