The actual murder mystery portion of the evening seemed very low effort.... It's essentially a play that you read out once the host assigns you a character. There is no actual solving of anything going on, since the murderer is revealed after all the pre planned dialogue is completed.It was also fairly obvious that the hosts just found the plays from a free website and printed the cards out. Also this seems petty since I realize the event takes place at a historic funeral home, but the furniture in our room still had the Good Will stickers applied and the mattress was very uncomfortable (it also had a distinct "old" smell). I'm all for saving money with second hand items but they should at least be functional. There isn't a good reason for the beds at a bed and breakfast to be uncomfortable. I would have given this 1 star, but the hosts have a "party" of sorts at the end of the night with Karaoke and it was much more fun than the murder mystery + dinner itself. I did really enjoy that part of the evening. The host's daughter is also a monster on the bongos.

We chose to come here for something different to do for the weekend, as a couple. We loved it! We stayed at the Sister house next to the main house and it was nice. I loved the antiques and decorations and Jodi is an amazing host! From everything to dinner, karaoke and breakfast...she is wonderful!

We went with a group of friends and really had a great time. Jodi & family are great hosts and very accommodating! They really make this a fun outing. Jodi was very generous with snacks, drinks and meals. The murder mystery is played exclusively by the guests and it was really fun!

Everything was very well planned and extremely fun! The food was delicious. Jody and her family were extremely welcoming and completely made the experience. If you get a chance to visit the Periwinkle house, do it!
