murder mystery weekends

Spice things up with a weekend of murder, mystery and fun at the Gibson Inn.

Weekends kick-off on Friday night with cocktails and an entertaining "themed" murder mystery. Spend Saturday afternoon interviewing suspects and finding clues while exploring historic downtown Apalach, followed by a delicious dinner at the Franklin in the historic Gibson Inn.

The stakes are high! Once the murder mystery is solved, the winner is selected as Master Detective and awarded a free, future 2-night stay at The Gibson Inn. 

Cap off the weekend with a Southern-style Sunday breakfast, reliving highlights from the weekend among new friends and newly minted detectives. 

Come and join us at the Gibson Inn where the ambiance makes it the perfect venue for murder.
