Take your pick at this 20-acre inn and farm in the Mount Snow Valley: a murder mystery weekend on November 7 and 8 or a leisurely stay for two between November 28 and March 31.

The Destination
Southern Vermont's Mount Snow Valley is lively all year round, but it really earns its moniker in the winter. Not only is the Mount Snow ski resort just a short drive from New England's major cities, it's also home to one of the largest terrain parks on the East Coast. There's plenty of entertainment off the mountain, too, starting with the quaint restaurants and antiques shops that line the streets of small towns like Wilmington and Dover.

The Digs
Once a dairy farm in West Dover, The Inn at Sawmill Farm was converted to a B&B in 1967 and hasn't looked back since then. Rooms in the main house are adorned with elegant floral décor and offer flat-screen TVs, private baths, plush robes, and perfumed soaps.

The 20-acre property is fertile ground for outdoor fun. In the warmer months, anglers will be in hog heaven at the two trout ponds, where catch-and-release fishing is allowed. Those who prefer to stay indoors can read or play games in the upstairs library, or relax with an in-room massage. At dinnertime, check out on-site Nonna's Restaurant, serving Italian dishes like shrimp scampi and veal piccata.

The Diversions
Should you choose to partake in the murder mystery weekend, you'll be treated to a suspense- and fun-filled Saturday evening—complete with costumes—in which guests assume the roles of suspects, murderers, and victims. After a dessert reception on Friday evening, you'll be free to spend the rest of the night and Saturday morning as you please.

On Saturday evening, during a wine-and-cheese reception, you'll begin acting out your roles and digging up secrets on the other guests. Before anyone "dies," you'll enjoy a sumptuous four-course dinner, during which you'll be in character, attempting to reveal clues about the murderer and his or her motive. After much finger-pointing and framing, the evening ends with secret balloting on who committed the crime and why.

  • "Full of character and charm, this inn in a converted barn has common rooms elegantly accented with English chintzes, antiques, and Oriental rugs."
