As demonstrated in The Shining, mountain resorts can provide hours of fun for the whole family in winter, but they offer an even wider array of activities in the summer. Celebrate this change of seasons with today's Groupon. For $159, you get a room (a $179 value) and breakfast for two (a $40 value) at the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. Since this Groupon includes the $20 resort amenity fee, the total value comes to $239. Two $35 spa credits on services over $105 are also included. You can add additional adults for $40 each or children (12 and younger) for $10 each.
Often a one-day getaway is all it takes for a full recuperation from everyday stress, making this a perfect way for a couple of lovebirds to escape life without going through the airlock and crossing the vacuum of space. About 2.5 hours outside of Boston, the Omni Mount Washington Hotel is a luxurious masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, dripping with Tiffany stained glass, crystal chandeliers, sentient but harmless maple syrup, and turn-of-the-century elegance. It's nestled in the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire, providing scenes worthy of a View-Master. Each room is stocked with comfy beds and high-speed Internet—all of which will come in to play once you're realized the strategic advantage of such an unassailable mountain redoubt.
After pillowy dreams, stumble downstairs into The Dining Room, a AAA four-diamond-rated restaurant, to be plied with seasonal, ever-changing local delights mixing and re-matching traditional New England flavors and staples. The breakfast menu has included delectable such fare as eggs benedict with Canadian bacon and maple hollandaise, blueberry pancakes with New Hampshire maple syrup, or malted Belgian waffles with fresh strawberries.
If you pulled your back breaking that fast, then put your spa credit toward a 50-minute Mount Washington customized massage ($105). If you'd rather recall your days as a former championship swamp thing, opt for the Moor mud wrap with a full shea-butter-cream rub down ($125).

TripAdvisors give the Omni Mount Washington Resort four owl eyes, applauding the retreat's beautiful setting and friendly service:
- The hotel is old, but extremely well maintained, and I felt like I was in the luxury of a different era. It has gorgeous architectural features, including many Tiffany windows, a huge fireplace with a moose, and spacious porches, and the foliage was also gorgeous. – JoyceK4
- From the beginning, the front desk staff made a great first impression by being cheerful, helpful and overall pleasant to deal with. Not only was our room available for early check-in, but we were told our room had been upgraded to a corner room – both very exciting after a long day of driving! The Front desk staff did a good job of explaining how to get to our room, where things were, using the shuttle, etc. The lobby of the hotel was very comfortable and inviting. – JDFTravels
