Murder Mystery Weekends
Murder Mystery Weekends

The Murder Mystery at the Harry Packer Mansion is based on factual events with a creative twist. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to rub elbows with the elite? Now's your chance...

The characters in our scenario of murder and mayhem are Packers or intimate friends of the family. The plot revolves around the Packer fortune - literally millions amassed on the Lehigh Valley Railroad - and its hopeful heirs.

We offer the mystery each weekend for up to 11 couples. Midweek we offer Mysteries for larger groups: individual characters will be assigned to volunteers while others work in teams to solve the mystery. The nature of our mystery is such that we can work with groups large and small, and everyone can participate. Test your mettle and match wits in an exclusive mystery of the Victorian era, an age when the sleuth was king!

Price is per person and each room has 1 queen size bed and a private bath. Price includes lodging on Friday and Saturday nights, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, a formal dinner Saturday night and of course participation in a dastardly deed!

Weekday Team Building Murder Mysteries are $100 per person plus room cost if applicable.

We have a liquor license so no outside alcohol may be consumed in common areas. Coolers are not allowed in the buildings.

Please, no stiletto heels. No smoking in guest rooms.

A $100.00 non refundable deposit is required to make a reservation and we have a 30 day cancellation policy.

If you cancel within 30 days of your reservation the total cost of the room will be non-refundable.
