Storyteller, Mindie Burgoyne Entertains Over Dinner

Join us for an evening of magical storytelling, tales that chill yet entertain and food fit for a final meal.

Up until the launch of Mindie’s latest book The Haunted Mid-Shore, The Robert Morris Inn successfully hid its haunting credentials for years, after all … who really wants to knowingly stay in a  haunted bedroom? That all changed after Mindie read the accounts of one of our fleeing guests and stayed in one of our two haunted bedrooms herself.

DINNER, STORYTELLING AND A FREE BOOK

Enjoy a scarily good three-course dinner and be entertained by Mindie between courses. The evening includes the dinner, Mindie’s entertaining tales and a complimentary copy of the latest book featuring The Robert Morris Inn, with Foreword  by one of the owners, Ian Fleming.

$68 per person for the evening. Does not include beverages, tax or gratuity.

My Scary Night at the Robert Morris Inn in Oxford

The Robert Morris Inn in Oxford, MD

The Innkeepers at the Robert Morris Inn shared a letter with me that was written by a guest who left in a hurry without breakfast … and breakfast is a BIG perk at the Robert Morris Inn. A portion of the letter is shown below. Here’s what the lady wrote: Continue reading Robert Morris Inn – Guest Flees in the Night
