Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time and hang your Stetson at a bed and breakfast with today's Groupon: for $90, you get a one-night stay in a standard room (a $180 value) at The King's Daughters Inn, located across the street from the Duke University campus in Durham.
Winning the 2010 North American Green Plus award for "Sustainable Enterprise of the Year," The King's Daughters Inn was converted into a lavish, 17-room bed and breakfast in the spirit of preserving historic architecture, incorporating modern technologies, and respecting the environment. Like a petrified mastodon, the building's skeleton remains perfectly intact since being constructed in the 1920s and has been renovated so that each room serves as a unique representation of early 20th-century art. Travelers can rest their weathered appendages on memory foam pillow top mattresses wrapped in 400-thread cotton sheets, and pass the time as the Lost Generation did during the roaring twenties––with high-speed wireless Internet and HDTV. Bathrooms feature all-natural bath products, and a microfiber robe is provided to reward a freshly cleaned body. The energy management system installed in each room wields an infrared sensor thermostat that turns the power off in empty, unused rooms, conserving energy and keeping Mother Nature green in the face. Check out all the amenities here.
Guests can wake their taste buds with breakfast in bed, or treat their eyeballs to a view from the inn's dinning area overlooking Duke's East Campus. Multi-taskers can ask for a breakfast-to-go package that includes homemade granola, yogurt, and muffins to take along while touring the neighborhood atop one of The King's Daughters' complimentary bicycles. Guests can also apply the value of their Groupon toward upgraded rooms, and simply pay the difference. Before booking, check availability online.
- I'm so glad we stayed here instead of the big-chain hotel or the campus inn -- the room lived up to the pics on their website, the staff was very helpful, and breakfasts were heavenly. – kmsmith13, TripAdvisor
- I was so excited to find this little bit of heaven on earth. The rooms are beautiful and charming and immaculately clean. – Review posted on 02/17/10, BedandBreakfast.com
