In today’s world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Enjoy the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get VIP admission to a murder-mystery dinner at the Lumber Baron (a $59.99 value). The VIP package includes:

  • One ticket to a murder-mystery dinner
  • One glass of beer or wine
  • A souvenir T-shirt, glass, or hat
  • VIP seating at front tables<p>

The Lumber Baron enlists an eclectic mix of performers to beguile crowds during comedic murder-mystery dinners hosted in the historic bed-and-breakfast mansion. On Friday and Saturday night, audiences enter in first floor parlors to clink cocktail glasses, meet the comedic cast of characters, before ascending to the mansion’s third floor ballroom to enjoy a three-course spread. After observing a feast including blueberry-walnut-spinach salad, peppercorn-rosemary chicken, and roast pork, actors reveal a murder mystery and prompt diners to solve the crime with provided evidence as well as aid from fellow diners and clue-sniffing busboys.

Paranormal investigators lead the Haunted House Hunt in October and first weekend in November, revealing secrets from one of Colorado’s most haunted mansions. Sleuths inspect clues from real ghost investigations while guides recount some of the house’s most intriguing ghost stories and check the dumb waiters for ghosts. Starting in November, guests begin the evening around the first floor parlor’s authentic blackjack and poker tables, antiques, and full bar for Casino Night Heist!, bantering with wry dealers and high rollers before the evening’s heist occurs. VIP attendees walk away from either show with their choice of a souvenir hat, T-shirt, or glass, which may be held as a keepsake and used as an alibi if accused of robbing a bank during the show.

Lumber Baron Mystery Mansion

Most people would agree that the Lumber Baron Inn looks like a mansion, but the significance of its cinnamon-colored exterior depends on whom you ask. The city of Denver would say that it's a historic landmark, Frommer's would add that it's a highly recommended bed-and-breakfast with four retro-posh suites, and its cast of actors would call it a stage for their talents.

Each weekend, their murder-mystery dinners entertain audiences with shows such as America's Got Murder! and Icing Bridezilla. Chef and innkeeper Julie Keller precedes each performance with a continually changing menu of eats; previous meals have included grilled chicken with pistachio sauce and sides of red-cabbage slaw and corn bread.

In addition to the murder-mystery dinners—which combine the Supreme Court's tradition of justice and chicken—Lumber Baron features an array of nightlife acts, including magicians, improv sketches, and movie screenings. Outside, the grounds' garden foliage wraps around events such as weddings and mixers.
