About Us

At first I was unsure as to what was expected, but John put everyone at ease and made the event a lot of fun!

For years now, people from all over North America have been coming to Murder Mystery Weekends hosted by John Bailey aka Deadly Fun Events- most recently at the Austin Hill Inn in West Dover, Vt. Guests from as far away as Texas, Louisiana, Florida and California have ventured forth to experience the suspenseful and fun-filled weekends.

John owned and operated the Austin Hill Inn for almost 15 years and hosted murder mystery weekends for 14 of those – averaging 20 weekends per year.

At first it seemed a great way to fill the rooms during the slow times in the Spring and November, but, despite the hard work, John fell absolutely head over heels with the weekends and the mystery weekends soon became the main focus of the inn. The people who attend murder mystery weekends, it was discovered, jump into their roles enthusiastically and want to do nothing more than have fun and escape reality for a weekend.

Along with their successes, word spread and soon some interesting sidelines occurred, such as:

  • When the toy giant Hasbro launched a recent version of their software game “Clue” with a national on-line publicity contest, what did they offer as the Grand Prize? A Murder Mystery Weekend at the Austin Hill Inn, of course!
  • When the town of Brattleboro wanted to develop a day long scavenger hunt based on their local author Archer Mayer and his acclaimed mystery novels, who did they consult with? John Bailey. And what was their Grand Prize? A Murder Mystery Weekend at the Austin Hill Inn – hosted by John, of course!

Now that he has moved on from the inn, John has teamed up with some special venues to continue to host the mystery weekends (He just can’t get enough!).
So come find out what over 5000 people have already discovered ~ Death can be hilarious!

And the Murder Mystery Weekends hosted by Deadly Fun Events are simply
TO DIE FOR!
