Autumn in Vermont with a twist of mystery: The Wilburton Mansion, where scenic views and thrilling whodunits collide!

The Scene of the Crime

Nestled atop a rolling hill with far-sweeping views of the valley beyond, The Wilburton Mansion isn't just your average lodging spot. With its rich history and architecture reminiscent of a 1902 Clue board, this luxe manor is straight out of an Agatha Christie novel. Whether you're soaking in the ambiance of its romantic guest rooms or sharing laughs with friends in the spacious, dog-friendly vacation homes, every corner whispers tales from the past, while enjoying all the modern conveniences and amenities befitting such a gorgeous locale.

A Weekend to Remember

Kick off your weekend by rubbing elbows with the "suspects" at a wine and cheese reception. Will the wine help loosen some secretive lips? Or perhaps the morning’s country inn breakfast, featuring divine pancakes and, of course, authentic VT maple syrup, will energize your detective senses.

Decadent attire, mischievous smiles, and libations in hand; could these elegant guests hold the secrets to the mystery? Amidst the clinking glasses and laughter, remember: every whisper could be a clue.

If the mansion's allure doesn’t make you want to explore every hidden nook and cranny, then the guided sculpture tour at The Museum of the Creative Process certainly will. And as the sun sets, get ready for the main event – The Case of the Bridesmaid’s Revenge dinner party. While indulging in a sumptuous feast, piece together clues, navigate through interpersonal intricacies, and see if you can crack the case wide open!

The Mystery Behind the Murder

The narrative is inspired by the real-life escapades of daring debutante, Louise Gilbert. Louise, tired of the monotony, yearns for a life less ordinary. But with a looming wedding, a groom gone AWOL, and possible bootleggers or pirates (yes, pirates!) in the mix, there's much more to the story than meets the eye. Will you uncover the truth?

Dress to Impress

Now, this isn’t just about playing detective. It’s also about doing it with style! Whether you're channeling your inner Hercule Poirot, dapper flapper, swashbuckling pirate, or wedding guest, make sure you're dressed to kill (pun intended). A professional photographer will be on the scene, capturing your most sleuth-y moments. And if you really nail your look, you might just snag a prize for best-dressed guest or group!

Sherlock would approve: style and suspicion go hand in hand.
