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. Receive respite from the chaos with today’s Groupon to The Lodge at Giants Ridge, located in Biwabik near Superior National Forest. Choose between the following options:
• For $149, you get a two-night stay in a Mesabi one-bedroom condominium Sunday–Thursday, plus a free appetizer and special discounts (up to a $367 value).
• For $179, you get a two-night stay in a Mesabi one-bedroom condominium Sunday–Saturday, plus a free appetizer and special discounts (up to a $427 value).
A condominium hotel, The Lodge at Giants Ridge treats guests to a picturesque forest retreat. Travelers can rest their weary brain cases in any of The Lodge's wood-decorated Mesabi one-bedroom condominiums, which can accommodate up to four people and include a king-size bed, a living area with a double futon, and a fully equipped kitchenette for late-night cravings of goulash and turkey legs. Depending on availability, revelers can choose a Mesabi one-bedroom outfitted with a whirlpool and fireplace for waterlogged marshmallow roasting, or add a view to the whole kit and caboodle. By day, guests can relish the resort's luxurious amenities, backstroking through pools or tacking rounds of tennis on the courts. Groupon room-and-boarders will also receive a complimentary appetizer, such as cheese and crackers ($8), nachos supreme ($8), or kabobs with choice beef tips, green and red bell peppers, and onions ($8), at Sticks Lounge.
Like a new car or bioengineered puppy, today’s Groupon is enhancable via a medley of potential upgrades. For an extra $69.50 plus tax per night, revelers who are double-dating can treat their loved ones to a romantic getaway that doesn't involve dozens of police cars in hot pursuit by upgrading to a Northwoods two-bedroom condo. For $125, those purchasing the option redeemable Sunday–Thursday can challenge themselves to a 36-hole round of golf at one of The Lodge's two golf courses—the nearly 7,000-yard Quarry or the forest-nestled Legend—with lunch included (a $180 total value). The getaway package redeemable all week long offers half off full-day mountain bike, kayak, or canoe rentals for up to four people, and both options also feature half off any Aveda spa services booked prior to your stay (up to four services total).
The Lodge at Giant's Ridge
Tucked into the scenic wilderness of northern Minnesota, Lodge at Giants Ridge occupies a prime location for enjoying the area’s year-round outdoor recreation. In the winter, skiers flock to slopes deemed some of the Midwest’s best by Ski magazine. Summer, on the other hand, is the time for hiking, mountain biking, and golfing at two of _Golf Digest_’s Top 100 courses in the nation—The Quarry and The Legend courses, ranked 20th and 72nd, respectively.
Elsewhere on the property, chefs at Timbers Restaurant prepare sirloin steaks, fettuccine alfredo, and homemade pizzas in a laid-back atmosphere. The onsite La Ridge spa, an Aveda spa and salon, doles out soothing services such as one-hour massages as relaxing as a smooth-jazz album translated into whale sounds.
