Fun Group Getaway
The Inn on Poplar Hill has been hosting Murder Mystery Weekends since 2002
A murder can be a perfect way to bring your group together. Imagine your friends and family working to solve the crime, with the theme of your choice.
Guests will assume a persona, don the appropriate attire, discover clues, uncover motives and finally crack the case. Played over a four course gourmet dinner, our Murder Mystery Dinners are so much fun they are almost criminal.
All that is required is a sense of humor and a willingness to take a light hearted attitude toward blackmail, sex, larceny, deceit and murder. The game is played over dinner. During a series of rounds your job is to solve the mystery, discover the murderer, and prove yourself innocent of the crime.
So much fun it is almost criminal. All of the players are capable of committing the crime, including you. Don't worry if you have limited experience solving a murder. You will be given suggestions and hints along the way. Most of our guest prefer to come dressed in character. Some of the most successful costumes emphasize the flavor of the character and the time period. Don't worry your character description will come complete with costume suggestions. And we always have few extra props on hand to help out.
We work with you to plan an event that is fun and hassle free. You just show up with your friends and we will take care of everything.
