After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $84, you get a one-night stay for two in a retreat room and regularly scheduled yoga classes at The Canebrake (a $168 value on weekends and $148 value on weekdays, including tax). The Canebrake is located about 45 miles east of Tulsa.
The friendly owners of The Canebrake, Oklahoma's first ECO-certified property, aim to provide a calming, luxurious resort that cultivates earth-friendly policies and improves the health and wellness of each incoming soul sack. The gorgeous Green Country swathes guests in five miles of varied topography and a telekinetic hug, and inside, the owners have erected every facet of their building and services with sustainability in mind. Upon your arrival, an experienced and knowledgeable staff member will lead you to a retreat room, which comes furnished with a split-king bed and two cushy chairs with a reading lamp, as well as thick terrycloth bathrobes, slippers, a spread of Aveda products and Starbucks coffee. In-room continental breakfast bags are provided, and each new calendar day presents a chance for hiking, fishing, spa treatments, or a trip to the adult sandbox, where grown kids can play volleyball, toss horseshoes, and host Tonka truck rallies.
A stay at The Canebrake includes access to regularly scheduled yoga classes. Whether you want to stand taller, bend over backwards, or open a pickle jar taped to your back, the limber instructors will accommodate your style, and classes are scheduled daily. Stretchers of all levels rubberize their limbs each day in the pleasant Yoga Barn, an inviting, 1,700-square-foot facility that features a heated cork floor, perfect for chilly feet and melting cocoa butter.
Today's Groupon is not valid on holiday weekends; be sure to call ahead and make reservations.
