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. Saturday 2nd April 2016
Evening starts at 7pm.

I knew the Robert Morris Inn was haunted, but I never expected to have my own ghostly experience there. Out of the 140 + ghost stories I’ve collected on the Eastern Shore, I’ve only had a handful of personal experiences at these sites. The Robert Morris Inn is one of those places.
The Robert Morris Inn in Oxford, Maryland has been an anchor for the town since 1710 when it was built – and Oxford was one of the largest ports in Maryland. The building was always an inn or tavern, and was there long before Robert Morris ever set foot in the place. It only took on his name once the wealthy developer moved into it.
