I had my birthday dinner at the Lumber Baron and I must say it was the best time EVER!!! I absolutely loved it and I will recommend it and take any family and friends who are wanting an amazing night out in Denver! The cast was so wonderful and the story line was so funny! If you are on the cusp of a decision to go... just do it!!

My experience with the Lumber Baron was fantastic from start to finish! We held our company Christmas party there and had the pleasure of staying overnight. The house was beautifully restored and I loved my room (the Valentine)! It was spacious and comfortable and I enjoyed the over sized tub. The pre dinner gambling was a lot of fun and we got to interact with many of the actors that would be in the murder mystery. After gambling, we enjoyed a great dinner. The food was better than I expected. The show itself was hilarious and fun to watch and I really enjoyed the audience participation and improv. The next morning, we were served breakfast. Once again, the food was delicious and exceeded my expectations. Throughout our entire event, the service was top notch and really made my experience great! Overall, I had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go again!

Just terrible. The food was marginal, the show was... I don't even know how to describe it, but it was cliche, silly, and not at all enjoyable.

A group of us decided to take a vacation to Colorado. We didn't want to stay at the tradition modern hotel so we looked up some interesting places in the Denver area. We found this B&B called the Lumber Baron Mystery Mansion. What we got was more exciting than what we anticipated. Our first night their we got invited to the MURDER MYSTERY DINNER by our awesome host Walter Keller B&B owner. Some of Denver's best places to eat are within 5 minutes of the place not to mention the mountains are 20 minutes away. This location could not have been better. If you run into this place while looking for a stay be sure to ask for the group rates.

I applaud what the family is attempting here with this Mystery Theater / bed and breakfast. When we arrived we had to search for someone to check us in. The house itself is lovingly restored, clean, and care has been taken in the rooms and their amenities. It was obvious that the shower, bath, and toilet were awkwardly added when the house was converted into a B&B. The shower and toilet were the most “intimate” I’ve ever seen, however the limited space was used most efficiently. The bed was comfortable and warm on a cold night. The pre-dinner show gambling downstairs was very noisy, but since I was at the show, it didn’t bother me or keep me up all night. After the show was over and the audience left it was very quiet. The gambling was crowded and the tables filled up quickly. There were long lines for registration and the bar, despite exorbitant drink prices. The actor at my table was unable to deal effectively due to their costume and wasn’t all that knowledgeable about the rules. Of course this wasn’t for real money, just for fun. Actors mingled with the crowd during this time and the characters they played ranged from intimidating, disquieting, annoying, startling, and abrasive. Even though these were just the characters they played, it did make for awkward guest interaction. The dining room/theater was furnished with round tables. I got to sit front and center, unfortunately since the table was round, I was facing the opposite direction from the stage. Each table was given a turn to get up and go get their food, cafeteria style. The food was adequate. I won’t ruin the plot of the show, suffice it to say it seemed to rely heavily on improvisation. There was a lot of stepping on the fellow actors lines, a lot of silences, and definitely some chuckles. There was no “mystery” to solve to the silliness and the clues made no sense or even matter in the end. Several of the acts got long in the tooth. I’d say it wasn’t a great audience, but the fact that it was an off night was very palpable. I recognized that the show could have been a really fun time if we had had a more receptive crowd, if I had known what to expect, or if I brought a small fortune to invest in intoxication. A number of silences, flat jokes, and audience apathy generated an awkward compassion for the actors/staff. I really wished I could say I loved this place, but I was disappointed. What bed and breakfasts have over hotels is that personal touch. For a place that relies on word of mouth, you would think that someone would check on us, see how we're doing, or inquire about our stay. Instead I felt like a thief in the night, sneaking in and absconding in the morning. There is definitely great potential here. I think my experience might have been an off night, a fluke, or a coincidence, or a comedy of errors if you will. If you do choose the Lumber Baron, I hope your stay is everything you’d hope… odds are it might be.
