So impressive! We know Lanesboro and the opportunities here, this is hands down ​our favorite thing offered in town in the winter. I’ve had to bring back multiple groups ​of friends, so they can discover the remarkable secrets of this house!

“Thank you so much for a fabulous experience! We loved visiting your beautiful home ​and exploring all the nooks and crannies to find the missing artwork. It far exceeded ​our expectations! (And we knew it would be really fun!)”

The script for the adventure is original and fun. As we tried to interpret our clues to ​discover where the artworks were hidden we were amazed at the clever wit and ​mechanics involved with creating the secret hideaways. We loved having our whole ​family involved and even our eldest son was super impressed!

Prepare for a fun event

The mystery itself is highly interactive, and you have opportunity to move throughout ​the house as the mystery progresses. If you are able and willing to crawl on your hands ​and knees for a few yards and are comfortable with, say, hiding in a closet for a few ​minutes, all the better. It’s not required, but it adds to the fun.

Dressing for the 1940s is optional, but keep in mind that mobility is important (e.g., no ​cumbersome clothing, no high heels).
