Buhl Mansion Guesthouse & Spa, one of America’s Top Ten Most Romantic Inns and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is celebrating 20 years of providing first-rate service to guests. With 10 well-appointed guestrooms and a full-service spa, it is perfect for romantic getaways, indulgent spa escapes, exclusive executive retreats, and castle weddings. Steeped in history, built and maintained on love, the Buhl Mansion promises grand memories of a lifetime.
The mansion was built by Frank H. Buhl, founder of Sharon Steel Corporation. Construction of the Richardsonian Romanesque “castle” started in 1890 and was completed in 1896 by Charles Owsley, a Youngstown, OH architect for $60,000. Frank and Julia Buhl did not have any children, and after they passed, the home fell into disrepair.
In 1996, local entrepreneurs Jim and Donna Winner, who in 1986 completed a successful restoration of Tara – A Country Inn, saw the potential of the “Castle” as a bed and breakfast and restored the home to its former grandeur with a multi-million-dollar renovation. The Bed and Breakfast opened on December 31, 1997.
Each of the 10 rooms has individual heating and cooling, a gas fireplace, television, DVD and CD player, telephone, and either a king- or queen-sized bed. All bathrooms include Jacuzzis for two, separate showers, hairdryers, deluxe bathrobes, slippers, and upscale amenities. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the mansion. All guests receive a complimentary glass of champagne.
In addition to the opulent guest rooms, they also offer a world-class spa. The spa offers individual and couples facial skin care, body treatments, massage therapy, hand and foot treatments, and spa parties.
Buhl Mansion Guesthouse & Spa is also an ideal location for intimate, personalized events. Event space options include the gardens, tented courtyard, greenhouse, and carriage house. For more intimate gatherings, the parlour, sunroom, and formal dining rooms are also available.
For the entire month of January 2018, they are offering Buy One Get One “BOGO” 50% off as an anniversary special.
