Invented by Theodore Roosevelt in 1909, nature has become a top natural resource for city dwellers looking to get out of their three-piece suits and into their camouflage tuxedos. Strap on your outdoorsy bow tie with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a one-night stay in a lake-view cabin at the Redwood Lodge, located in Whitney (up to a $135 value). Today's deal is good for cabins 8–11, but you can upgrade to larger cabins for an additional charge.
Redwood Lodge caters to outdoor-nurturing souls, providing expansive views over Lake Whitney from the comfort of its cabin dwellings. Redwood Lodge's lake-view abodes connect to each other via a scenic deck, allowing fresh-air breathers to gaze over the rocky crags of the bluffs. Sunny, wood-lined cabins provide cozy accommodations, and come equipped with a kitchenette stocked with a full-size fridge, a microwave, and a two-burner stovetop.
Sitting atop the bluff, the lodge overlooks the hiking paths that conveniently lead to the secluded clear-water cove. A private boat ramp provides access to the paddle and sailboats, allowing amateur captains to practice their navigational abilities on something larger than the backyard bird fountain. The lodging area is equipped with free WiFi and cable, in case outdoorsmen need to stay connected to the modern world while lounging at the bar or after a leisurely dip in the pool.
