Murder Mystery Weekend 2020

Truly, A Weekend to Kill For!!


Keith O'Leary and Margo Morrison have masterminded a unique and unforgettable weekend that will put you smack dab in the middle of a homicide investigation. Heralded by the media as a phenomenon and new form of audience participation theater, Keith & Margo's MURDER MYSTERY WEEKENDS offer a chilling opportunity for ordinary people with a passion for cold blooded murder... slippery red herrings... diabolical clues... and ingenious detective work to indulge themselves in one of the most unusual, exhilarating, and spine tingling experiences they've ever had! Who hasn't dreamed of beating Columbo to the punch or who hasn't wanted to be Jessica Fletcher or Hercule Poirot for a weekend? Well, now's your chance. Come match wits with our detectives, and to boot you'll enjoy the cuisine of the Apple Farm Restaurant.

The Murder Mystery Weekend Includes:

  • Two nights’ accommodations checking in 10/30/20 checking out 11/1/20.
  • 3 day murder mystery adventure.
  • Friday night cocktail party (cash bar) with heavy hors d’oeuvres.
  • Saturday breakfast, lunch, cocktail party (cash bar) and dinner.
  • Sunday morning breakfast
  • All taxes and gratuities
  • Is this a special occasion? If it is, a birthday, anniversary or special occasion for someone, bring along a business card or picture, (something they don’t necessarily need back that will ID that person, and without them knowing about it), and slip it to the host at the first cocktail reception.  It will end up on a victim at some point over the weekend and that person will have a lot of explaining to do when the cops show up!

Weekend Itinerary


AFTERNOON– ARRIVAL AND CHECKIN: Meet your Murder Mystery Host at the cocktail reception after check-in where you will be given a suspect list and other material.  Do not trust anyone at the hotel, including the person you came with.  (You never know, anyone could be involved!)

7:00 PM – RECEPTION: This is where it all gets started.  We highly recommend you get to know your fellow guests as soon as possible.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions and start narrowing down your suspect list.  Everyone is fair game.  Something is bound to happen here.  Take a head count.  Someone is going to leave at some point during the evening-- ten toes up.


9:00 AM – BREAKFAST: The mystery will be well under way at this point.  For the early risers this will be a good time for some important updates.


– LUNCH: You’re not going to want to miss this.  Be prepared for some twists and turns.

Free-time.  You're on your own. Go shopping, visit the historic sites, or follow your favorite suspects around town!

– RECEPTION: Things will probably turn a little nasty right about now—and we’re not talking about the weather!

– DINNER: Just when you think you’ve got this whole thing figured out—things change.

till…? Free time or-- this is a period of great introspection, deep thought and playing hunches.


10:00 AM – BRUNCH: When you enter the dining room for the denouement you will be expected to hand in your final solution.

This is where it all comes together.  Were you right?  Did that one little slip of the tongue by your favorite suspect pay off?

The final scene is dramatic and very rewarding.  The Grand Prize is awarded to the sleuth with the best answer and “boobie prizes” to the most hilarious answers.

PLEASE NOTE:  Itinerary and locations are subject to change-- In other words, just about anything can happen!
