If you like to immerse yourself in a good murder mystery, you can place yourself at the scene of the crime next weekend. Chatham Bars Inn in Chatham, Massachusetts is holding another Murder Mystery Weekend from November 21 to November 23.

On Friday evening, guests get to meet other participants. The suspense builds at breakfast the next day when everyone begins to speculate about the first murder. Then the plot thickens even more by the time they’re at the Saturday night reception and dinner, where they discover all the missing pieces they need to crack the case. The fun weekend comes to a close when the mystery is solved at breakfast on Sunday morning.

About Chatham Bars Inn

Originally a luxury hunting lodge for wealthy Bostonians, the full-service resort has been transformed after a $100 million top-to-bottom renovation. Only a short stroll from the picturesque Cape Cod village of Chatham, Massachusetts, the Inn is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and a recipient of the Forbes Four Star rating.

If you miss the murder mystery weekend, the resort (which is now celebrating its centennial years) has other off-season holiday festivities scheduled from Thanksgiving to Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

    Oh gosh, I’ve always wanted to attend one of these, Irene! I checked out some pics of the hotel and it looks like a nice setting. And old lodge deep in the desolate woods would be even better! 🙂
