“This is so cool!” – just about everybody

These have been fun!  The Scandinavian Inn offers MYSTERY NIGHTS, held in a B&B specially designed to host them!  Our mysteries are unique because they involve the entire house — throughout the evening, participants move about the house, with clues evolving as the evening progresses.

Mystery Night Scandinavian Inn

You’ve got to be kidding

“I thoroughly enjoyed getting into character while experiencing a creative and delightful evening exploring a captivating and ingenious house!”
– RB, 2018

Think Agatha Christie.  Think of a time in history where telephones were the peak of technology, when paper was the common medium of communication.  Characters gather with a common interest, but perhaps have secrets of their own.  Think of a how-did-it-happen puzzle to solve, without the murder.

Participants both play a role in and help solve a puzzle.   Mysteries typically last 2 to 2-1/2 hours.  We can accommodate as few as one person.  Six people is a good maximum.

Thinking about doing a Mystery but don’t want the overnight?  The Scandinavian Inn is also offering Mysteries on afternoons or evenings for $35 per person.  Please call for arrangements.

Still interested?  Please read on….  Below is an example of one of our Mystery scenarios:

Uncle Vincent

In 1940, your wealthy French Uncle Vincent foresaw the German invasion of France.  An avid art collector, he quickly hid away his valuable are collection and left his home to take a “holiday”.  As he was leaving, he sent of identical letters to each of his nephews and nieces.  He survived the war, but died unexpectedly before he was able to return to his home.

The year is 1946.  As his heirs, you, his nephews and nieces, have gathered at his home to attempt to locate his priceless artwork collection while the clock is ticking.

Emails may be sent out ahead of time to each participant, providing information about the characters.  If you are able and willing to crawl a few yards or hide in a closet for a few minutes, all the better!

Participants are on their own for dinner.

Please call to reserve.  We hope to hear from you!    – Peter and Vicki

“Thank you so much for a fabulous experience! We loved visiting your beautiful home and exploring all the nooks and crannies to find the missing artwork. It far exceeded our expectations! (And we knew it would be really fun!)”  – AB, Oronoco, MN
