I went with a group of a dozen friends and was the organizer of the event. Having never stayed there prior, naturally I was worried about everything. The moment I arrived, my worries were alleviated. The mansion itself is stunning and the view of the town is just breathtaking. The team running the mansion (and the murder mystery in our case) did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable and welcome. Libations Lounge was a great treat with an excellent selection of beer, wine and liquor. The meals included in our package were very tasty and the Murder Mystery story itself is highly entertaining.
I stayed in Harry's Suite, which was spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. I'd highly recommend nabbing one of the suites!!!

Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more less
