People often do things at mountain retreats that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $299, you get a two-night stay and one full-day two-person ATV rental at The Cabins at Bear River Lodge just outside of Kamas (up to a $723 value).
The Cabins at Bear River Lodge grant lodgers recreational relaxation on the edge of the pristine 1.2 million-acre Wasatch-Cache National Park. Drink in views of the Bear River from the patio of a cozy one-bedroom wood cabin. Each cottage comes fully outfitted with comforts, including a king-size poster bed, jetted bathtub, and a wide-screen TV with a DVD player and Dish Network.
Prepare hearty meals, trail rations, and treats for hungry totem poles with a fully stocked kitchen and barbecue, or hunt down wild foodstuffs at the nearby convenience store. Two sofa sleepers adorn the living room, lit by a gas-log fireplace that flickers with romantic incandescent ambience designed for a couples retreat or a shadow-puppet wedding.
After a restive night, excursionists hit well-trod trails for an all-day ramble on one of Bear River Lodge's four-wheelers. Explore 400 miles of groomed trails, ample mountain streams, and indigenous wildlife from the back of an ATV (oil and gas must be purchased; helmet rentals are $5 each). Ride out to two private, stocked fishing ponds, ample mountain streams, and high-altitude lakes for piscatorial pursuits, including expert angling and learning how to speak trout.
