Murder Mystery Weekends

1950s Carnival & Barn Dance Murder Mystery: October 28-30

After an April wedding that ended up with a murder, and the inn’s regular paranormal activity, Colby Hill is turning over its grounds on October 29th for a 1950s Carnival and Barn Dance theme party. With 30 key characters and up to 50 extra roles, including creepy clowns, locals with dark histories and secrets, and competitive carnival performers who are also involved in complicated romances, a mystery is sure to develop….and someone will end up a victim. Reserve now to participate in the fun and help solve the mystery! Lodging and Dining Packages per room based upon double occupancy for two nights for a flat rate of $569 — the first reservations have the choice of the best rooms in our 14-room inn. Locals may join us for the Mystery and great food on Saturday at $75 per individual! (add $15 to be a main character and join the Wine & Cheese on Friday). We will begin assigning characters as early as September 15th so guests are prepared with costumes to assume their role...and some may need to practice their juggling or other carnival acts!

Meet the other guests and main characters in a Welcome Wine & Cheese on Friday, October 28 at 5:30. Friday dinner is not included in the package, but we encourage you to make reservations for the Grazing Room’s Chef’s Menu. The Carnival opens on Saturday around 5:00 p.m. and a Barn Dance begins at 7:00 p.m. The murder will occur sometime later in the evening, bringing everyone together to ask “who did it?!”
