It's time for a real getaway, the kind where you can escape everyday stress and replace it with serenity.

Our next Smart Shopper "Deal of the Day" will take you to The Butterfly Garden Inn located in the heart of Oak Creek Canyon.

They have 28 acres and 19 cabins, ranging in size from one bedroom to three bedrooms with full kitchens.

The owner and operator, Frank Garrison, told us that you'll find painted butterflies all over the property because of what they signify.

"It's that transformation from one form to the other, that disconnection from modern life to going back to a day where you play games with your family and actually communicate," said Frank.

There are no TVs and limited cell phone service and plenty of ways to enjoy the solitude of nature.

When you're a guest, you get to enjoy 10 acres of private access to the creek! That means you don't have to fight the traffic and parking at Slide Rock.

Rates range from $175 to $275, but with our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day, you won't pay full price! Book online by Sunday at 5 p.m., and you'll score 40% off two nights. Use this promo code: SMARTSHOPPER18

You'll need to complete your stay by August 31st, and there is a two-night minimum. Also, there is no cancellations.

While you're there, ask the owner about the history of the property. Frank told us a woman named Ida Davis built some of the cabins on site in the late 1800s, and some of the original structures are still standing. Those cabins were originally for miners working in Jerome. They would stay, sometimes fish, and then take food back home. Also, ask about the names of the butterflies!
