Keep the Romance Alive

Check-in any time after 3:00pm and enter your luxurious room to find the mood for love already set. Because you selected the “Keep Romance Alive” room embellishment (only $75), you are greeting by a split of Buhl Mansion Wine, a Buhl Mansion Keepsake Chocolates, soft music & candles, fireplace lit (in season), the bed turned back, robes and slippers waiting, a turn-down tray, and silk rose petals sprinkled on the bed. This calls for a quiet evening in to connect with your love and let them know how special they are.
