Friends of ours rented out the Berry Patch last night for a 50th birthday party....a Murder Mystery! We started the afternoon with some wine and cheese and getting into our characters. Conveniently, the current staff were trained in theater and have done murder mysteries before. Randy, the officiator, had even written additional characters for the mystery. We then continued on to one of the suites that was staged as where the "murder" took place and collected evidence. By the time we got back, dinner was served. After Q&A time, it was time to solve the mystery! This party was a lot of fun and I would highly recommend it.
The grounds and Inn are beautiful. Not a place I would take a younger child because there are many, many breakables around. The porch and outside patio were a warm welcome as we enjoyed them often. Everything was very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Now on to the complaints, although they may seem a little petty or minor. As you see I did give 4 stars because I was more than pleased. When we first arrived, Bunny made a poor impression by throwing a bit of a fit about where we parked our coolers (which were outside per her request). After that, we barely saw her for the rest of the night which was great because the 2 staff taking care of us were so warm and friendly! Our dinner was a delicious chicken with gravy. Really some of the best I've ever had. But it was served with instant mashed potatoes...thumbs down to that.
We stayed in the Alexandria suite. Bed was comfortable but my husband and I are used to sleeping in a very dark room. The room had no shades and was pretty bright.
We parked our car next to a huge pile of fertilizer. Incidentally, that is what they mulched with around the property. But it really didn't smell.
Overall, we had a great experience!
