A getaway, unlike other forms of self-preservation, facilitates relaxation and doesn’t require sealing oneself in a mason jar. Escape in peace with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a one-night stay (up to a $149 value) at Westphal Mansion Inn in Hartford, about 30 minutes north of Milwaukee. All stays include a four-course breakfast and wine-and-cheese reception.
A charmingly restored, historic Tudor mansion surrounded by English gardens and overlooking downtown Hartford, the Westphal Mansion Inn commingles the Old World trappings of French country decor with hearty hospitality. Each of the four plush, distinctive suites included in this Groupon boast triple-sheeted, queen-size beds enveloped in cozy goose-down comforters, as well as attached private baths. Both little women and 50-foot contortionists can tuck into the Louisa May Alcott, an antique-ornamented abode with rain-shower spa bath and French chandelier. The F. Scott Fitzgerald exudes a more contemporary Old World vibe with an oak-mantel fireplace, a restored 1917 fountain, and a downtown view. The Margaret Mitchell gives lodgers an opulent entrance into the gilded ambience of provincial France, with silk artwork, crystal chandeliers, and french doors opening to a voluptuous double soak tub, making the room the perfect weekend getaway, romantic getaway, or getaway to watch the Charlie Sheen movie The Getaway. The cottage-style, warmth-infused Ernest Hemingway suite encloses a vintage 1800s iron bed under vaulted ceilings along with a day bed, french doors, dormered coves, and a claw-foot soak tub.
Westphal can tailor the included four-course breakfast to dietary needs ranging from vegan to gluten free; simply mention specifications when booking your stay. In addition to specialty dessert and a wine-and-cheese reception, guests are welcome to sip complimentary bottled water and soft drinks and take advantage of high-speed wireless Internet, turndown service, and a full concierge. Summer visitors can saunter through English Gardens, and a fireplace in the living room beckons sojourners during shiver-inducing weather to hunker down with a book or board game, or venture their best chess-piece juggling strategies. Felicitously nestled in the hub of downtown Hartford, Westphal Mansion Inn sits minutes away from a panoply of attractions, such as a theater, museum, art center, and parks and trails overstuffed with ambrosial outdoor filling.
Though Westphal Mansion Inn sometimes features booking specials online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
