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 flame of passion with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay in a Gilcrease or Osage room with breakfast in bed (a $225.45 value), refreshments (chocolate, strawberries, and beverages; a $54.55 value), and a late checkout (a $20 value) at Kennedy Mansion Bed and Breakfast (a $300 total value).
The historic Kennedy Mansion, which was built in 1925, is nestled amid stately trees and a lush landscape spread out just northwest of downtown Tulsa. The mansion'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. Sumptuous bathrooms with antique-style fixtures and ornate wallpapers help guests freshen up with soaks in the tub or perk up with motivational speeches to the mirror. Both rooms boast views of scenic terraces through large windows and the entire worldwide web through wireless Internet access, and guests can dip into an outdoor pool set in a manicured lawn.
After settling in, toast the nearby sunset with refreshments, chocolate, and strawberries while lounging in luxurious privacy. Come morning, guests can choose $20 worth of breakfast room service from a menu of crepes and egg dishes prepared by French chef Françoise. Then, pack and plan at a leisurely pace with a late checkout. Kennedy Mansion's close proximity to downtown Tulsa, Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino, BOK Center, Performing Arts Center, Driller Park, Cain's Ballroom and several other attractions means you can continue your relaxing, carefree getaway within a handful of seconds. Guests can upgrade to the mansion's suites or the cottage for an additional $50, as well as add a one-hour massage ($50) or a couples massage ($100) to their stay.
