Murder Mystery by my sister-in-law

 

Murder Mystery

Murder mystery. Good news to share with our guests. Suzie’s sister, Rena, has just had a book published! I’ve read it and it’s really entertaining and charming. It’s called Murder Beach and is a murder mystery with a ghost, set in California near San Francisco. Rena has moved to Cape May County from the San Francisco area and is now working on the sequel to Murder Beach.murder mystery Cape May b&b

You can buy the book in paperback or as an e-book on Amazon at

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Murder+Brach+Rena+Leith

Another good idea; buy the book and read it lying on the sand in Cape May during your next visit to Leith Hall. www.leithhall.com

Hope to see you soon,

The Creepy has Started

Creepy has Started

Halloween is here and the Creepy has started already. The first installment is the Phantom Ball at Congress Hall, this Friday October 30th. A $25 ticket will get you a specialty cocktail, a full desert and candy bar and admission to the after party in the Boiler Room.

More Creepy

That same evening, psychic Craig McManus will lead Midnight at the Physick Estate – talking about his ghostlycreepy discoveries and perhaps rousing a spirit or two. Two tours; Phantoms of the Physick Estate, which is a scary drama enacted in the house, and the Ghosts of Cape May trolley tour, which is a tour of town pointing out the many haunted houses of Cape May, will also be available for Friday October 30th and for weekends afterward.
There are lots of other, less spooky, but no less wonderful things to do on that weekend. Willow Creek winery has fire-pit Fridays, where you gather around the fire in a gorgeous setting with food and drink. Cape May stage is presenting Trying, a great play that Suzie and I saw a couple of weeks ago.

Beach Plum Farm will have a sweet, low-key harvest festival. Darin MacDonald will be appearing at the Brown Room at Congress Hall; and the Washington Street Mall will be all prepared for your early Christmas Shopping to begin.

Come stay with us at Leith Hall for this Fall weekend and enjoy all that Cape May has to offer.creepy

Cape May’s annual Spring Festival

Spring Festival

Cape May’s annual Spring Festival is next week – and this year there are lots of spectacular activities. There will be the Spring Festival Crafts and Collectibles show, as well as several tours like Cape May After Dark, Chocolate Tasting Tour, and Historic Haunts Combo Tour.

The Self-guided Winery and Brewery Tour and the Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery Tour, and the Winery Cellar Tour and Tasting may all sound like the same thing, but are really three very distinct experiences – at different wineries and with different presentations. You can link to the Mid-Atlantic Center’s website to get details and sign up for activities.

My favorite part of this year’s Spring Festival is an exhibit of paintings by Alice Steer Wilson, who was a great painter who lived in Cape May. Her watercolors were extraordinary and in the same league as Winslow Homer’s or John Singer Sargent’s.

 

Come visit us at Leith Hall and take advantage of the dozens of things to do on a Spring afternoon in Cape May.

Scary Cape May – the ultimate return guests

Scary Cape May, right here at Leith Hall

Last weekend, our wonderful returning guests, Jeromy and Vonessa, stayed at Leith Hall. Jeromy is a photographer and he posted a photo he took in our Iris Room on our facebook page. It shows themScary Cape May as ghosts, haunting Leith Hall – the ultimate in repeat guests. Check out our facebook page. Send us your photos, even the scary ones.

Did you know that Cape May also has lots of ghost related events all through the year. There are two different kinds of para-normal investigations that MAC sponsors. One group features Craig McManus, Cape May’s spirit medium. You can stay up through the night at the Physick Estate with him and hope for a visitation. Another group of investigators are Ghost One, who use lots of “high tech” instruments to record para-normal activity. (Think of it as Ghostbusters without the humor.) We also have ghost trolley rides (especially around the Haloween season.) and there’s Elaine’s Haunted Mansion – which is a dinner theater with a fun/scary interactive play. My guests have always had a good time there and praised the food.

Even better, make a reservation, come stay with us and check it out in person!

Most Haunted City

Cape May is the most Haunted City in America

Some say the Cape May is the most haunted city in America. Some just run screamingmost haunted city from the room. You decide. This year there will be trolley rides with Craig McManus, a.k.a. “the ghostwriter” when he’ll tell you about all of the spirits he’s discovered in the Victorian houses of Cape May. If you have the nerves for it, you can spend “Midnight at the Physick Estate” and listen for the presence of Aunt Belle – shut up in the attic. The house will be decorated for the season for weeks and available on the Phantoms of the Physick Estate tour.

Another frightful alternative are the Monsters, Mystery and Mayhem available at Elaine’s Dinner Theater. This year’s offering features Dr. Frankenstein and a series of most haunted citybaffling murders at the castle. As each of the characters you suspect is murdered, you don’t know who to fear most. At least you can depend upon the food.

Consider visiting us at Leith Hall during this haunted season. Call or go on line to make a reservation (Incidentally, we’ve been certified as “ghost free” by Craig McManus himself!)
