What You'll Get
A bed and breakfast offers an escape from homes that have been colonized by feral children or overrun by prides of carnivorous dandelions. Get away from homeowner's headaches with today's Groupon to The Mark Addy Inn, located in Nellysford. This deal is valid Sunday through Thursday. Choose between the following options:
- For $250, you get a two-night stay in a suite or deluxe room and a wine-lovers' scavenger hunt (up to a $539 value).
- For $200, you get a two-night stay in a standard or standard plus room and a wine-lovers' scavenger hunt (up to a $459 value).
The Mark Addy Inn shelters guests in a friendly, intimate bed and breakfast surrounded by sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Bushed boarders can bunk in one of 10 themed rooms and suites, such as the Victorian-style Mary Virginia standard room, or the Tiger Lily deluxe room, stuffed with elephant figurines and rattan furniture. Each room features distinct decorations and amenities including flat-screen televisions, two-person showers, personal porches, and junior Marie Curie chemistry sets. Each morning, guests will rise to a three-course gourmet breakfast served in the inn restaurant, The Fountain Room, where chef Rafael Tal concocts creative cookery from homegrown herbs and vegetables.
At check-in, guests receive a collection of gourmet chocolates, two bottles of Virginia wine, and a collection of four clues that lead scavenger hunters on a tour of four local wineries. Clever cryptologists who decipher the clues will collect a series of items that, when brought together, may or may not form a complex Rube Goldberg device for making pancakes. Successful scavengers then turn in their items to the innkeeper for a secret prize (valued at up to $229) or hoard them to sell to lazy scavenger teams at a marked up value.
- The rooms are sweet and cozy and you may not want to leave them. The breakfast is excellent and different everyday [sic] and the staff is what makes this place what it is. – erankatz, TripAdvisor
- The building itself it absolutely beautiful, and practically oozes history. The views of the mountains around are breathtaking, and the front porch is a great place to watch the sun set over the Blue Ridge. – A BedandBreakfast.com reviewer on 11/24/2010
