We still have a few spots left for our November 4/5th Mystery Weekend
Come to The Captain's Quarters Inn and have a fun weekend while trying to solve a mystery.
Friday evening will start by having some hors d'oeuvres while the guests gather in the parlor. The story will then begin with the introduction of the suspects and, of course, the victim.
Saturday morning will start with coffee service outside your door, followed by a full, hot breakfast in the dining room.
After breakfast, you will receive your first clue that will then lead you on to the many other clues within walking distance of the Inn.
Spend the afternoon on the porch or in the parlor with clues and try to solve the mystery.
At 7 o’clock, dinner will be served in the dining room. The menu is a three-course, gourmet meal that starts with a seafood course, followed by an entrĂ©e, and concludes with dessert. There will be just enough time left in the evening to put finishing touches on your conclusion to the story. Who will come closest to solving the crime, and whose solution will be the most creative?
The next morning, you will have coffee service waiting outside your door at 7 am, followed by breakfast in the dining room.
After breakfast, stories will be read, and the mystery will be revealed!
