Though the candle of romance can cause third-degree burns, its gentle warmth is the best way to heat a pot of cuddle chowder. Tickle the passionate flame back into radiance with today's Groupon: for $189, you get a one-night stay in a Gilcrease or Osage room, a couples massage, and breakfast for two at the Kennedy Mansion Bed and Breakfast on West Fairview Street just east of the Tulsa Country Club (up to a $425.45 value).
The historic Kennedy Mansion, which was built in 1925, is nestled amid stately trees and a lush landscape spread out just north of downtown Tulsa. The manse's elegant Gilcrease and Osage rooms feature richly painted walls, colonial-style furniture, and queen-size beds at least three times bigger and seven times snugglier than the average monarch. Slick, spotless bathrooms made sumptuous with antique-style fixtures and ornate wallpaper provide guests with stylish spaces in which to freshen up with a soak in the tub or perk up with a motivational speech to the mirror. Both rooms boast large windows overlooking scenic terraces, as well as wireless Internet access and a surplus of other admirable amenities.
This deal also includes the nimble kneadings of a one-hour couples massage and breakfast room service for two prepared by French chef Françoise. Ravenous risers can wake up to the smell of bacon-and-cheese-filled crepes, vegetarian omelettes, french-pressed coffee, or birds chirping the Happy Days theme song. After breakfast, Kennedy Mansion's close proximity to downtown Tulsa's entertainment district, the Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino, and several other attractions enables guests to continue their relaxing revelry within a handful of seconds.
