What You'll Get
Lovers often stop and admire the sky turning red at sunset, which is the happy side effect of the sun burning out at dusk and being reignited at dawn. Celebrate two celestial cycles with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a two-night wine-and-dine getaway at Manhattan Beach Lodge in Crosslake, valid Sunday through Thursday (up to a $418 value, depending on spring or summer rates, or whether staying on a weekend or weekday).
Manhattan Beach Lodge hosts 18 sunset-view rooms and fine dining, its cozy quarters nestled alongside the scenic Big Trout Lake. For two nights, guests will find repose in a standard single (up to a $298 value) or standard double room (up to a $318 value), each chamber possessing lavish accommodations, an in-room bottle of wine, a $100 gift certificate to Manhattan's Restaurant, and complimentary jester. A continental breakfast hops into the yawning mouths of guests before they adjourn to hike, lounge by the lake, or sink into the spa room, complete with sauna and hot tub.
Manhattan's Restaurant, located on-site, exudes rustic charm and presents a classic menu. The lodge walleye is served alongside salad, soup, and a grizzled fisherman to tell the walleye's life story ($23). Meanwhile, guests are also free to dig into an eight-ounce Manhattan fillet, either by the restaurant's fireside or on the patio ($29).
Though Manhattan Beach Lodge sometimes offers special packages online, this Groupon offers the best deal available for standard and standard double rooms.
