Within the rolling hills of Green Country lie beautiful and romantic getaways for all lovers to enjoy. Oklahoma offers the best of both worlds; scenic vistas while luxuriating at an out-of-the way bed and breakfast or a champagne toast amongst city lights.
Tulsa and the surrounding area offer a wide array of city or country hideaways for a quick weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Here are my top picks:
The Mayo Hotel
Located in historic downtown Tulsa on Fifth St., the Mayo offers the most luxurious rooms available in the metropolitan area. Not only do they offer room service, their sophisticated suites are outfitted with full kitchens and magnificent views of the Tulsa skyline. The beds are impeccably soft and this refurbished boutique hotel offers a fantastic penthouse bar as well.
Skelly Lodge in Catoosa is a sight to behold because not only does this rustic oil-baron lodge sit high upon stone bluffs overlooking the Verdigris River valley; it is reminiscent of early Oklahoma. Built by oil tycoon Bill Skelly, the stone and mortar lodge features lovely guest rooms, yet the real beauty lies in the scenery surrounding it. Past guests include American presidents as well as William Churchill.
Eureka Springs, AR
A short drive of two and a half hours from Tulsa, Eureka Springs is romance heaven. Nestled in the winding hills of the Ozark Mountains, this tiny community is a mixture of delights. The town was a mecca for those in ill health who wanted to bathe in the restorative waters of the area’s natural springs. Although many of the springs are still operative, the main attractions are the quaint cabins and historic hotels.
Cedar Rock Inn
Located just west of Tulsa, the inn sits on the lavish expanse of 55 acres of Redberry Farm. This 1890 inn is the former home of Tecumseh Perryman. The charming B and B offers beautiful suites that adhere to the heritage of Oklahoma as well as the person who built it. Scenic venues and a sense of peace await you.
The Ambassador Hotel
The Ambassador is another beautiful and historic boutique hotel in the heart of Tulsa that features opulence and elegance. Not only do they provide complimentary airport transport to and from the hotel, your pets are welcome and enjoy extra treats along with their human companions. Dine at Chalkboard restaurant and indulge yourself at Omni Oasis Spa.
The Tulsa area has much to offer for those who desire their getaways geared to soaking up nature or living the high life. Our Okie hospitality makes your visit even better.
