Hotels immerse guests in the comforts of home as effectively as a childhood blanket or a pair of enchanted ruby slippers filled with chicken-noodle soup. Escape to a magical world of luxury with today’s Groupon: for $169, you get a two-night stay for two in a retreat room and regularly scheduled yoga classes at The Canebrake in Wagoner (a $337.57 value on weekends; a $294.12 value on weekdays, including tax).
Oklahoma’s first eco-certified hotel, The Canebrake, about two hours from Oklahoma City via the Turner Turnpike, beckons visitors to retreat from their routines in comfortable rooms, hiking acres of forest, and unwinding with yoga classes or pampering spa treatments. After guests check into cool, tiled, dog-friendly retreat rooms outfitted with split-king beds, free WiFi, and a deck with rocking chairs, they can grab specialty cocktails and a wine and cheese plate from The Canebrake's bar before rambling around the 400-acre property. Friendly front deskers happily advise guests on activities, providing poles for fishermen to cast into five ponds stocked with fish and sea monkeys.
A 1,700-square-foot Yoga Barn, constructed of completely eco-friendly materials, hosts complimentary yoga classes. A certified instructor leads guests on a daily schedule atop a heated cork floor, keeping feet comfortable while bodies balance in advanced poses. Swing by the fine-dining restaurant, which features a menu of locally sourced produce, sustainable seafood, and free-range poultry, along with gluten-free, vegan, and diabetic options. Local musicians perform for Jazz Nights on Wednesdays and Fridays.
After a solid night’s sleep, a thick terrycloth robe soothes skin and luxurious Aveda products lather a refreshing wake-up wash-up before a complimentary cup of steaming Starbucks coffee and a light continental breakfast. Unwind from resort fun with soothing spa services (not included in this Groupon), including a range of face treatments, massages, and Ayurvedic treatments. Second-day activities can draw visitors to outside recreation, including boat charters, horseback riding, and golf. Groupon holders may upgrade to a queen or king suite at an additional charge.
Today's Groupon is not valid on holiday weekends; be sure to call ahead and make reservations.
