A stay at a historical getaway allows patrons to get close to history without sporting wooden dentures or sleeping on a pile of Indian-head pennies. Relive the past with today's Groupon to the French Country Inn in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Choose from the following options:
Up to two additional adults may stay for a charge of $10 per adult, with no extra charge for up to two children.
The French Country Inn's historic grounds host cozy rooms that open to balconies or patios overlooking the cobalt waters of Lake Como less than 20 feet from the boutique hotel. Innkeepers un-parch throats with complimentary afternoon tea and sherry in the parlor, after which guests retire to classically adorned rooms outfitted with either two queen beds or a king bed. There, travelers warm up beside a crackling fireplace or in-room dragon or dip toes into a steamy whirlpool bath before wandering to the lakeside dining room for complimentary breakfasts the next day. Lake Como's tranquil waters impart serenity, whereas downtown Lake Geneva bustles with shoppers a short drive from the inn.
Transported by rail from Chicago after being featured as the Danish Pavilion during the 1893 Columbian Exhibition, the French Country Inn's buildings, which served as a resort in the 1900s, are inundated with history. The secluded locale and a tight-lipped innkeeper made the spot a favored getaway of famous gangsters such as George "Bugs" Moran, Baby Face Nelson, and members of the John Dillinger gang; during Prohibition, bootlegged sips flowed in the hotel's basement, which served a speakeasy, gambling hotspot, and refuge for hardened jaywalkers. To this day, the restored hotel's new restaurant, Wakefield's, proffers a speakeasy menu alongside its dining menu of European cuisine. Though not included with this Groupon, guests can also purchase a new book about the French Country Inn that includes history of gangsters at the inn.
