A night at a hotel offers a rare chance to prank call former employers and ex-dentists from a number they won't recognize. Take advantage of anonymous accommodations with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a one-night stay at the Blakeslee Inn, located in titular Blakeslee, and a $50 credit for its restaurant (up to a $150 total value). The Blakeslee Inn's main draw is its acclaimed restaurant, where the culinary sorcery of chef Jim Evans, former executive chef at the governor's mansion, inscribes delicious dishes on an ensorcelled menu. Ordering the chilean sea bass ($30), packed with crab meat and bathed in chardonnay cream sauce, is a fitting retort to any presumptuous fish, crustacean, or grape that disputes human culinary dominance. Guests may be housed in a standard room or suite depending on availability, but will surely find a regal queen bed and a surly knave couch on the premises. No pets will be admitted unless their disguises are extremely convincing.
Although reviewers were overwhelmingly not satisfied with the inn's overnight amenities, others rave about the restaurant's dining options. Four TripAdvisors give the Blakeslee Inn and Restaurant an average of four owl eyes and OpenTable reviewers offer a 4.5-star average:
- My wife and I dropped in to the Blakeslee Inn Restaurant for dinner. We were promptly seated and ended up enjoying an above average dinning experience. – Nocke, TripAdvisor
