Like time travel, staying in an antique hotel allows guests to be momentarily transported into the past; unlike time travel, it doesn't require exhaustive calculations or a well-timed lightning storm. Go back into the past with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay at the Wayside Carriage House Inn in Sudbury and $25 toward dinner at Longfellow's Wayside Inn (up to a $220 value).
Nestled snugly on Sudbury's historic Boston Post Road, Wayside Carriage House Inn welcomes weary travelers with comfortable, modern rooms in an old-world New England setting. Step into a lobby warmed by a stonework fireplace, and imagine yourself in a bygone era lightly touched up by ample amenities and flattering Technicolor. After a dreamy rest in a cozy room, buff history buffs can work off a hearty breakfast with grueling fork exercises in the fitness room. For sightseers, a horde of historic attractions await nearby. Explorers may visit the Grist Mill and Schoolhouse, the Danforth Art Museum, and Walden Pond, a favorite of philosophic authors and introspective ducks alike.
Free shuttles transport guests from the Carriage House to Longfellow's historic dining room, where diners can quell belly rumbles with a hearty dinner of classic seafood, steaks, and more. After starters such as Nantucket crab cakes ($9.95), patrons can complete a seafaring supper with dishes including salmon dijonaise, a freshly oven-roasted filet finished with an herbed dijon crust ($20.95). The Wayside Inn lobster pie ($28.95) serves as a savory fraternal twin to sweet-tooth-tempting selections from the dessert menu. Dinner is served Monday–Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. On Sunday, dinner is served all day, beginning at noon until the last seating at 7:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended for dinner.
