Replace dull urban doldrums with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night bed and breakfast stay in the apartment room, breakfast, and a choice of either a romance-themed or hiking-adventure welcoming package at the Mountain Laurel Inn in Mentone (up to a $211.90 value). Today’s deal expires on May 26th, 2011.
Situated just steps from picturesque panoramas of the DeSoto Falls, Lookout Mountain, and the Little River Canyon, Mountain Laurel Inn excites environmental excursionists with a blend of rustic charm and rich relaxation. Keep an eye on nature from the comfort of the restive king-size bed and stratosphere-spying skylights of the Inn's upstairs apartment room, which can comfortably sleep two guests. Once rested, outdoorsy types can ramble through the scenic underbrush to enjoy healthful hikes and placid star-gazing, or consult the inn's activities page to find entertainment inspiration both outdoors and in.
Mornings at the Mountain Laurel Inn begin with room-side coffee delivery before tempting tenants and their tummies to the dining room, where a family-style breakfast reinforces recreation tanks with fuel such as fresh fruits, homemade breads, and a rotating selection of main courses including french toast, breakfast pizza, and more. Today's Groupon also grants guests the choice of one of two welcome packages. The I Love You package sets the mood for romance by showering sweethearts with roses, chocolates, sparkling cider, and other romantic accouterments, and the Trekking package outfits restless wayfarers with a picnic lunch, hiking maps, trail mix, water, and Mountain Laurel Inn walking sticks.

- This is a great place to get away from the big city, do some magnificent hiking in nearby State and National Parks (who knew North Alabama was so splendidly beautiful) and relax. – LP55
- Quaint rooms, beautiful location and best of all, very personable service and the best breakfasts I have encountered in any bed and breakfast. – Threecees
