|This is where it all began some 25 years ago with incredibly good food and gorgeous surroundings.
The Villa was exceptional as a mystery site. During our "troublesome guest" phase they played host to the best Sherlock Holmes I've
ever encountered short of Jeremy Brett. It has as much atmosphere as any location we've worked and you can't make better friends on
earth than the folks who run the Villa. If you're ever in southern Michigan stop in! Their 7-course champagne dinner will linger in
your memory for years! And be sure to take a look at our
Victorian Villa Gallery!

|You probably know that Cape May is my favorite place on the planet . . .
and the Carroll Villa Hotel is our Mystery Headquarters in Cape May. That about says it all. In fact, the only
reason Shadow Stalkers are stalking again is because Mark Kulkowitz, the hotel's owner, dragged me out of mystery
retirement and has been, overall, a very bad influence on me! Plus the hotel's restaurant, the Mad Batter, has absolutely
irresistible crab cakes and desserts. Their bourbon is very good too! You can check out all their other amenities below.

|The Bedford Inn signed up with the Carroll Villa Hotel and has
hosted a number of mysteries, usually fielding their own team for the weekend adventure. If Victorian
is your style, you have to see the Bedford! Archie Kirk, the owner, has not been a bad influence on
Denham but hey, nobody's perfect!
