  • Murder Mystery Nights

    Price from: $35

      Book for one night at the base rate and arrive ready to have great fun. Our Murder Mysteries are offered in two packages and around a two week notice is best:

      • Invite your group or friends to join you in this memorable night. Requires 8-10 people depending on which Murder Mystery game you choose out of the four we offer.
      • Sign up for a Murder Mystery for a future date. You will be given notice as to when the next game will take place, call the inn. You are the actors in the play.

      You will be sent a short description of the murder and the characters in advance. The Murder Mystery includes your own script to follow, and clues. Costumes are encouraged. The mystery takes about three hours with breaks in between. The goal is for the players to determine the murderer.

      The night of the event, enjoy dinner beginning around 6:30 p.m. Non-alcoholic beverages will be served but you may bring your own wine if you desire.

      The cost is $35.00/person plus your room rate which includes breakfast the following morning. If you want your friends to join in the Murder Mystery only, the cost is still $35.00/person.

      You may request a Murder Mystery night any time by booking a room and inviting 6 to 10 friends. Better yet, book all three rooms and receive a 10% discount on the rooms.
