For years, Barbara Spencer had dreams of opening a combination bed and breakfast and photo studio. Now she's the proprietor of her own Victorian Country Inn, a quaint B&B with everything from a Victorian tea room to an Old Tyme photo studio, where patrons dress in costumes for Western, Civil War, and Roaring '20s photos.
The photo shoots aren't the only reason for guests to get into character. Patrons also dress in costumes to play characters for the famed mystery dinners without needing to memorize any lines. The events embody a slew of themes, such as Public Enemy #1 with 1930s Historical Criminals, Roaring '20s in the Sarsparilla Speakeasy, and Clue Mystery, where folks try to work out if the butler did it in the conservatory with a bottle of shoe polish. Meanwhile, wardrobed guests dine on similarly-themed BYOB gourmet meals, made with local produce whenever possible.
After the night's activities, patrons head up to bed in the Garden Spa suite to cozy up next to the fireplace. They might also explore the Starlight Theater suite, a special vintage room that allows folks to go full Sherlock Holmes with a hidden passage to the inn's theater room, where folks enjoy old movies.
