Murder Mystery Night on April 17 -- "Merriment and Mayhem" at the Blue Shutters

Folks are beginning to line up for the next special event here at the Blue Shutters -- a Murder Mystery Night on April 17. We did this last fall, and our guests had a lot of fun. Once again, we'll have our murder mystery expert on hand to organize the evening -- all you have to do is play along. There'll be refreshments for everyone -- along with many laughs. And to extend your fun throughout the weekend, we're offering a special discount – book one night and get the second for half price. There are still spots available -- call or email us if you have questions...or if you want to go ahead and sign on for the "merriment and mayhem" that's sure to happen that night.

Sun and Fun, Chocolate and Wine This Saturday

The weather channel tells us it's going to be a spectacular weekend -- a preview of a summer at the beach. And if that's not enough to convince you to come visit, there's our Chocolate Lover's Wine Tasting. Our wine tasting events are always great, but we're making this one very special -- a bit of chocolate, a sip of wine, a walk along the beach in the sun. It doesn't get ny better.

Delicious Details for our March 20 Chocolate Lover's Wine Tasting

Plans are starting to come together for our March 20 Chocolate Lover's Wine Tasting, and we thought folks would be interested in some of these details -- and hopefully this will convince you to join us. Chef Mark Sapienza tells us he's pretty certain he'll be accompanied by the Langham's pastry chef, Jed Hackney, who's responsible for the hotel's chocolate bar buffet -- which features over 125 chocolate desserts every Saturday through June. We won't have 125 items, but Mark and Jed have already mentioned a few that they're planning:

Pistachio Dacquoise with Salted Caramel Mousse

Blood Orange Pate de Fruit

They've also been working with Kathy on the wines:

Argentina 2007 Cielo Torrentes to start
Argentina 2008 Bailando Malbec from the Mendoza region
California 2007 Tria Syrah
California 2005 Glassmoon Rising Cabernet Sauvignon
Italy Moscato d'Asti

We'll try to share more details with you as we get closer -- if you have any questions or if you want to sign up for this, just call or email us.

Blue Shutters in the Off-Season -- See What Our Guests Have to Say

The warm weather has folks thinking about summer, but there are still some fun off-season months ahead. Wondering about Blue Shutters in the off-season? See what our guests have to say -- awhile back, we started using this blog to share some notes from the guest book in our main room, and here are some snapshots from late 2008 and early 2009:

"After five days and six nights at the Blue Shutters we really felt at home. I will never forget this beautiful little piece of earth and the natural and friendly people."

"We were treated better than family! We will be back!"
The Vassars

"What a wonderful place to watch the beautiful sunrise."
The Trelors

"A wonderful weekend -- warm and cozy"

"Thanks for letting us check in early and enjoy the 6-hour nap!"
Ambra and Frankie

"Thank you for the most relaxing two days."

"Thanks for two great, cozy nights. We had a Happy Easter."
Jim, Diane and Molly

Chocolate Lover's Wine Tasting, Murder Mystery Night and more!

Just a few weeks to go before our Chocolate Lover's Wine Tasting, and we can't wait to see what our chefs from the Langham Hotel and our wine consultant have in story. If you're interested in this March 20 event, call or email us -- there's still plenty of room. If this date doesn't work for you, consider our April 17 event -- we're recreating our Murder Mystery Night. When we did this in the fall, our guests had a blast (the four innkeepers had a great time too). If you're interested in hearing more, call or email -- or better yet, come by for a visit. Today is a particularly beautiful day here at Good Harbor Beach. Spring-like weather makes the beach even more appealing -- tons of beachwalkers out this weekend. Come and see for yourself!
