Are you looking for something that is incredibly fun and unique to do on your next weekend getaway? Or are you searching for a way to celebrate an upcoming special event in an unusual way? If so, Sundance Trail Guest Ranch’s Murder Mystery Weekends just might be the place for you.
Country Inn Murder Mystery weekends!
What do Pepi Roni (the pizza magnate), Judge Waylin Payne (of Roadkill, Colorado) and the science fiction author H. G. Wells have in common? Why, they’ve all been murdered right here at our Colorado bed and breakfast – dude ranch!
One of our favorite winter time activities at the ranch is Murder Mystery game weekends. Once a month or so, when we have 8 to 12 willing suspects, we find a poor murder victim sprawled out nearby – “deader than a doornail.” Murdered, and often with the first clue nearby.
Our guests then spend the weekend, between meals and horseback riding, untangling each other’s half-truths, evasions and high jinks. The games are designed for participants who are willing to take a whimsical view of blackmail, larceny, deceit, and murder.
Those of you who are offended by such high-jinks as shady dealings, sordid affairs, and deceptive conduct should not book reservations for these weekends! If you do book, plan on some laughter!
We love hosting these games. Imagine, people come to spend the week-end with us. They exercise our dude ranch horses, they make us laugh like crazy for the weekend, and then they pay us money! What a life!
We can also schedule a game for any time that you might have 8 – 12 people who want to spend the week-end together and play (before dude ranch season begins in mid-May) –perhaps a birthday party or maybe just get away with some friends!
Contact Sundance Trail Guest Ranch for more detail about the Bed and Breakfast Murder Mystery Package
All Country Inn Murder Mystery packages include lodging, meals, a murder to solve and daily horseback ride (weather permitting).
We are also planning a December 31st New Year’s Eve Murder Mystery Party!
This will be an “all evening” affair – the game will start with appetizers and then supper and the case will be solved before midnight.
Champagne Toast at midnight
Morning or early afternoon horseback ride.
Do you have a group of friends that would enjoy a Country Inn Murder Mystery weekend together?
Do you have a birthday, anniversary, or other special event that you would like to celebrate with a unique twist?
We can schedule a Murder Mystery at any time that you would enjoy – just round up a group of friends (for a total of either six or eight players or more), book two nights together, and we will take care of the rest!
The games are designed to be played in 3 to 5 rounds of investigation, one round with each meal, starting with Friday supper.
Bookings are limited to the first eight players, and restricted to participants who are willing to take a whimsical view of blackmail, larceny, deceit, and murder.
Those of you who are offended by such high-jinks as shady
dealings, sordid affairs, and deceptive conduct should not book reservations
for these weekends!
And if you love horseback riding plan on riding our horses each morning after breakfast!
How much does it all cost?
Participating in a Murder Mystery requires a two night stay. We are only willing to stay up to midnight on New Year’s Eve!
Current Country Inn Rates: Consider two nights’ lodging, five meals, two horseback rides, the Murder Mystery event, and just enough free time to enjoy other activities or do nothing at all!
