The Deal

Within The Stone Lion Inn’s stately 1907 Victorian home, guests participate in murder-mystery dinners for 20–40 guests that span entire evenings. Before the event, sleuths receive specific character details via email complete with a bio, suggestions for dress, and news stories about the events of the era—usually the 1920s, ’30s, or ’40s. Guests dressed in retro garb gab over cocktails as the evening begins, interrogating friends, strangers, and overly patient wait staff. As the investigation heats up, participants sit down to a seven-course dinner that unfolds amid flickering candlelight. After the feast, snoopers finally close the case, discovering the murderer to be the sweet old lady, the maniacally cackling butler, or a fellow character.

As an added perk, Groupon holders who stay the night receive $20 off the price of a guest room.

The Stone Lion Inn

The flicker of gas lanterns. The flounce of petticoats. Weekends at country mansions. The spirit of the Victorian era lives on in the imagination and across the grounds of The Stone Lion Inn. Here, leaded glass still lines the bookcases and some tubs have claw feet. Built in 1907, the secluded mansion's corridors seem like something out of a mayhem, murder mystery—and they frequently are during its regular whodunits.

For all its Victorian-style trappings, guests are still free to eat breakfast at the 200-year-old French table. French-press coffee pairs with a different quiche each day and fresh berries in rum cream. From there, guests might spend the day reading in the library, practicing their pageant walk down the sweeping staircase, or gazebing in the gazebo until they're plum gazebed out.
