What You'll Get
Statistically, home is the place you're most likely to fall asleep under a running lawn mower or spontaneously combust while trying to slow dance with a running lawn mower. Find a safe haven with today's Groupon: for $189, you get a two-night stay for two in a James Island suite at Cedarwood Inn & Suites in Sidney (a $392 total value, including HST).
Set on Bazan Bay, Cedarwood Inn & Suites affords views of the Olympic Mountains and San Juan Islands from its waterfront location. Sojourners stroll past the territory's gardened landscaping blooming seasonally with colourful flora while heading toward one of four James Island suites, each inviting evening sheet-folding competitions on its two queen-sized beds. Further amenities such as a gas fireplace, jetted bathtub, and queen-size sofa bed beckon a deeper plunge into relaxation. Outside, a patio opens onto ocean views, and inside a full kitchen equips lodgers to perform their favourite Swedish Chef routine. Pairs may add up to two more guests for $15 per person.
Nestled in the quiet residential area of Sidney-by-the-Sea, yet only 20 minutes from Victoria, Cedarwood's water-skirting location enables many forms of quiet exploration throughout the year. Walks on the beach yield spottings of blue herons and bald eagles as well as killer whales and harbour seals, depending on the season and one's ability to imitate Poseidon's husky voice. The Anacortes Ferry lies a short jaunt away, as do wineries, golf courses, and The Butchart Gardens, showcasing 55 acres of seasonal flora.
