Murder In Vermont

Imagine yourself an eccentric actress or a prestigious director, hobnobbing with some of the wealthiest and most powerful residents in town.  Keep an eye out for that shady character and keep an ear open when that town gossip begins to blab.
Names are dropped, rumors fly,
tension mounts and, all of the sudden, the person you were last seen with
drops dead!! 

Get ready for some fast talking as you attempt to wrangle your way out of becoming the prime suspect.  You've always wanted to find out "who dunnit", so come and find out.and be ready to point fingers!



Our Country Inn has eleven guest rooms, individually designed with antiques and hand-stenciled country furnishings. Most of the rooms have fireplaces to warm up those cool Vermont nights. Many have balconies facing the rising sun to welcome in another perfect day of healthy relaxation. 

The room types range from the romantically appointed Suite, King and Queen bedded rooms to the Family rooms with multiple beds. All eleven guest rooms have private baths.
