We don't normally offer Escapes to dangerous locations, and really, Vermont is one of the safest places in the country (it's ranked 43rd out of 50 in murders per capita), but we can guarantee that at least someone from your group will meet their maker on this Escape to the Big Bears Lodge.

This quaint New England retreat in West Dover, Vermont, is offering a murder-mystery package fit for your inner-Sherlock. Pack a weekender bag and call up your fellow Watson for a two-night stay for two on October 26 to 28, November 30 to December 2, or December 7 to 9 ($299).

Your stay begins with a Friday night dessert reception to meet your fellow victims and presumed suspects. Also included with your retreat: daily breakfast, a wine-and-cheese reception on Saturday evening, and a four-course dinner for two later that night.

With 24 bedrooms, a quiet lounge, a TV lounge, a bar lounge, a dining room, a game room, an indoor hot tub, and a children's play area and treehouse, this spacious lodge in the foothills of the Green Mountain range is a dream setting for fans of murder mysteries.

Besides assuming the role given to you in your character packet, and playing detective throughout your stay, the hours of your day can be spent exploring outside the killing grounds. Mount Snow is only a five-minute drive away and offers some of the finest skiing in the Northeast, not to mention Carinthia's status as "the promised land" for free skiers and riders and terrain park junkies, says the Boston Globe.

For those more likely to tumble than gracefully glide down the mountain, head ten minutes south to Wilmington, a charming mountain village where you can grab lunch and leisurely browse antiques and boutiques.

The chance to be murdered in the mountains and live to tell about it makes this Escape one heck of a killer deal.

  • "We found the Big Bears Lodge to be a great place ro stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast was great, with so much to choose from."
