Gateway Lodge Murder Mystery
August 25 - 27, 2017
The Gateway Lodge
The Gateway Lodge - elegance in the Cook Mountains, Cooksburg, PA
Gateway Lodge Murder Mystery Gateway Lodge and its blend of offerings provide the perfect setting for a weekend getaway, perhaps spiced with a little... murder!
In recent years the lodge added over 20 modern spacious suites, most featuring a private outdoor balcony with a forest view, plus an in-room Jacuzzi adjoining a gas fireplace.
Gateway Lodge maintains its original charm with eight historic lodging rooms, featuring antique decor and either separate or shared baths. Whichever room you select, your restful night’s sleep is followed with a wonderful B&B country breakfast served in the lodge’s hewn-log dining room. Relax in the lodge’s Great Room with its log beams, wood-burning hearth, intimate seating areas and outdoor deck surrounded by forest grandeur. Adding to your choices…if rustic forest cabins are your preference, choose from the lodge’s own unique grouping, each with a fireplace, kitchen and wooded setting.
Gateway Lodge…a place that lets you choose how you want to get away from it all.
But we're pretty sure that on this one weekend, it won't be quite the restful place it normally is because of a murder (or two, let's say three at the outside) will be committed in front of a roomful of witnesses!
The weekend of crime will follow one of Keith and Margo's Murder Mystery Weekend special plots starting Friday evening when you meet with your fellow sleuths, not all of whom are what they appear to be. Infiltrating the group are actors who will do their best to blend in, and sometimes, even work to incriminate you. The Friday reception is a good place and time to become familiar with the scheming, manipulative, deceitful and murderous people that you will be spending the next day and a half with. As opposed to the ones you meet every week back home.
The mystery begins on Friday evening and develops by the early afternoon on Saturday, but you'll still have some free time to take advantage of The Gateway Lodge's facilities before dinner. Dreadful events occur, and you may stumble over a dead body or two. In the best tradition of television and the movies, the chances are good that a kindly, perhaps somewhat dishevelled, local detective with a possibly warped sense of humor, will become involved to clarify the situation, guiding and cajoling you into thinking about the means, methods and motives of murder!
By dinner on Saturday night, you should have all the information you need to solve the murder but just when you think you've got it sussed, watch out for the final twist!
Sunday breakfast at The Gateway Lodge is when it all comes to an end! You'll be asked to write down your best hunch about who did what to whom, and why. (You already know how, because you'll have seen it with your own eyes.) While you enjoy breakfast with your fellow sleuths, mercifully free of herrings, red or otherwise,
our team will select the best submitted solution, along with some of the more
outlandish suggestions for the prize-giving ceremony.
Lots of laughs, lots of suspense too!
