“Charles & Amy gave my husband and me a remarkably comfortable and relaxing weekend (we live local but it’s nice to get away sometimes) in the gorgeous Wren Cottage! They also hosted a Murder Mystery party for my friends and family which was epic! We chose The Murder on the Petulant Express, and everyone dressed up in their 1930s costumes while Charles led us through a fun & fascinating crime scene investigation!

In our group of 18 people, this murder mystery dinner was a first for all of us! We had a blast and are already planning our next themed party here! This weekend was more than worth the money, time, and effort we put into preparing for it! I highly recommend you reach out for your next getaway and/or Murder Mystery Party!”
