We recently attended a murder mystery weekend at the Harry Packer Mansion and we had an awesome time.
Bob does a great job setting up the mystery and assigning roles to the guests.
We really enjoyed watching the story unfold as well as participating in the fun.
The mansion is lovely. We stayed in Harry's Suite which is a fantastic room.
The town is a short walk down the hill from the mansion and is a very cute old town.
The old library is a greta building.
Sadly I didn't figure out the mystery but that didn't dampen my time. We enjoyed both breakfasts and the dinner that was included in the mystery package.
This is a great way to spend a weekend, next time we will choose to come in the warmer weather so we can enjoy more outdoor activites.

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
