One of my happy places in life is Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. If you’ve never been, I urge you to go. Newport is an amazing town to visit—it combines beaches and mansions with historic pubs and the best Dark & Stormy you’ve ever tasted—but I digress. Back to Castle Hill. This hotel is perched on a hill overlooking the ocean and takes advantage of the phenomenal views by scattering its greener-than-green lawn with Adirondack chairs, where you can park yourself for hours, watching cruise liners and sail boats speed by while drinking delicious cocktails (did I mention there is all-day cocktail service on the lawn?!). It was here that I fell in love with Newport. And Adirondack chairs.
When I lived in the city, outdoor space was a rare commodity and as a result, outdoor furniture was never on my radar. But then the ’burbs happened and with it came lots of grass and patio. And I couldn’t wait to get a pair of Adirondack chairs for the front lawn and maybe four or more to encircle a fire pit in the backyard. So, I went shopping—and quickly discovered that these stately chairs actually cost a pretty penny. Like, well over $100 each.
Which is why I took note of Hayneedle’s current sale on the Coral Coast Big Daddy Reclining Adirondack Chair. Typically $329, the Big Daddy is now on sale for $71.99 (with the code “PATIO10”)—that’s 78-percent off, people! The chair comes in a dark finish and has a built-in retractable ottoman—meaning you can pull it out when you’re ready to take a nap and tuck it away when the kiddos are running around and you don’t want anyone to trip. It also has super spacious arm rests—where I plan to rest my cocktail, close my eyes and pretend I’m watching the sailboats speed by.
In case you’re not sold on the Big Daddy and want to see some more options, we’ve rounded up five similar chairs at a variety of prices—none, however, are as cheap as the Hayneedle deal. Buy soon, though, a similar lighter version of the chair already sold out!
