Tried a few different methods and kept returning to the clone tool in various blend modes. Just wasn't pleased with anything else. I think it is the graduation of brightness within the stained area making it hard to replace with a quick fix. Hopefully someone else will do better.

I think Tommy is right. The "stain" really didn't discolor the image much, if at all though. I did bring it into ACR and ran a white balance on it and it helped the over all image, but I think it will be pains-taking cloning, healing and borrowing to fix the image. Very fixable, I think, but it will take time.

To give you an idea of what a little bit of cloning can do, I've done a very quick job on your picture, obviously with more time and a bigger image you should be able to get a better result.
