For $50, today's Groupon gets you a $200 credit towards cottage and sports-equipment rentals at Springwood Cottages in Arden.
Springwood Cottages relaxes guests with spectacular scenery, comfortable accommodations, and a variety of outdoor activities in any season. With 20 guest homes to choose from, groups of almost any size can swap life's stressors for nearby nature trails, sandy beaches, and fishing on Kennebec Lake's plentiful waters surrounding the 10-acre property. Accommodations range from a modest bunkie cottage for two (from $60/night) to a brand-new two-bedroom vacation cottage that sleeps four (from $200/night) to the four-bedroom luxury main house, which is plush with amenities and lets up to nine slumber sweetly (from $350/night).
Snow savants can take advantage of frozen precipitation pastimes, such as snowmobiling and ice fishing, and finish off the day with a hot-tub or sauna session. During the warmer months, guests can don their finest nylon-spandex blends for unlimited swimming, rafting, and tubing, and kid-centric playgrounds and movie nights ensure even the youngest of the flock fly festively. Check Springwood's website for seasonal pricing info and availability.
