We had an amazing time at the Harry Packer Mansion doing the Murder Mystery weekend with 4 of our friends. There was a group of 12 of us all doing the Murder Mystery together, and it turned out to be a fun group! The mansion is absolutely beautiful and we had the chance to see a couple of the guest rooms (they were awesome!), however we stayed in the Carriage house, which was also really nice and we were more than comfortable there. The owners Bob and Patty and their son Taylor were gracious hosts who made us feel right at home. Patty made amazing breakfasts each morning and a dinner that was unbelievable. Everything in the town was within walking distance and we got to enjoy so many fun things within the town during our free time from the Murder Mystery. I would highly recommend staying at the Harry Packer Mansion. We will definitely be back!
