What You'll Get
The riverboat holds a distinct place in American lore, calling to mind a bygone age of languid voyages, elegant gambling, and deadly exchanges of photon torpedoes with Klingon garbage scows. Author your own riverboat odyssey with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a one-night stay at the River Inn Resort (up to a $140 value), located on the Missouri River in historic Brownville.
An 18-room inn floating just off the banks of the Missouri River, the River Inn Resort cozens its residents in a boutique bed and wakes them up with a hot gourmet breakfast courtesy of owners Randel and Jane Smith. The art-deco-inspired rooms are nestled to fit the boat's contours and are each outfitted with Italian leather furniture, a Doctor's Choice mattress, individual climate-control sensors, HDTVs, and wireless Internet, as well as comfortable hotel amenities such as a mini fridge, coffee and tea service, and a specially trained massage gorilla. Each room has a private deck and bathroom adorned with modern fixtures. Guest can mingle amid the games, books, and large-screen TV in the general hospitality deck or gaze in awe at the star-filled sky and its many soaring bald eagles from the open-air top deck, which is covered in Tom Osborne–stamped original Nebraska Corn Husker practice-field turf.
Just a 10-minute walk or 20-minute slow-motion run while shouting "Nooooo!" from the River Inn Resort is the mid-nineteenth-century charm of Brownville, established in 1854 and now a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. Historic houses and monuments dot the streets, where shoppers can amble among local merchants selling antiques, books, and artwork. The nearby Museum of Missouri River History is housed in a retired dredge boat once used to control river flooding, navigation, and dolphin stampedes. After a day of hiking, biking, fishing, or hunting, you and your life's bedmate can also savor a romantic river-riding dinner cruise aboard the The Spirit of Brownville (not included in Groupon).
