Chase away the winter doldrums with a fun, romantic weekend getaway filled with intrigue and possibly sampling of some of Northeast Ohio's finest wines when you attend the Vintage Murders Murder Mystery Weekend event at the Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake from Friday, January 31 - Sunday, February 2.

Vintage Murders Weekend Package Located along the shores of Lake Erie in the heart of Northeast Ohio wine country, The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake is playing host to a multi-day, interactive murder mystery event filled with good food, a chance to sample some good wine and even a grand Winter Ball where some unfortunate character will meet his or her untimely demise.

After check-in on Friday, guests will attend a reception (with hors d'oeuvres) where they will meet the characters in the murder mystery event (presented by a professional theater company). On Saturday morning after breakfast at Horizons Restaurant at the Lodge, guests will board the Lodge's two wine shuttles and visit some of the local wineries (about an hour at each winery) where they can collect clues to the dastardly deed. Wine tasting is not included in the package but guests will have time to partake of some wine tasting at each winery visited for a small fee.

After returning to the Lodge, guests will attend a grand Winter Ball in the Lodge's ballroom where they will submit their guesses as to who committed the heinous crime. Dinner is included at the Winter Ball. The menu consists of grilled chicken breast with Corn Fondue and Tomato Concasse, carved sirloin with horseradish sauce and herb au jus, a mixed greens salad (with choice of dressing), garlic mashed potatoes, pasta primavera, a vegetable medley and a chef's selection of lavish desserts.

Sunday morning, guests will enjoy a brunch and it is there that the killer will be revealed. Prizes will be awarded for the best guesses.

The package includes two nights accommodations at the Lodge, all wine shuttle transportation and the meals mentioned. Cost of the Vintage Murders Package starts at $469 plus tax per couple (depending on room type).
