THE PRECIOUS GOLDEN RING FOUND! GUEST RECEIVES FREE STAY FOR FIVE -- Entering through the round Hobbit doorway (similar to the one Bilbo Baggins left through) at Spring Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Manitou Springs, CO, Julie Musselwhite, 15, of Monument, Colorado began a "Journey of the Heart" in search of the precious gold ring. Along with 11 other girls & two sponsors attending a conference for teenage boys and girls, "True Love Waits," at a local youth center she alone discovered the golden ring. "You mean,no one else has been able to find the ring before me?" she exclaimed. She alone has found it. Congratulations! As promised in the "MY PRECIOUS! MY PRECIOUS!" February Valentine special, Ron and Judy Lancaster, owner/innkeepers, awarded the one who would find the "Golden Ring" a free stay. Because of her age, Julie was invited to bring her parents and a couple of girlfriends. Although, the group of teenage girls was too busy to watch one or all of the three Lord of the Ring videos as offered, they did enjoy a fun-filled breakfast together the next morning. They were then off to their local church to receive genuine gold rings to wear as a symbol of their commitment to remain chaste sexually until marriage. The ring may then be given to their spouse as they begin the true "Journey of the Heart." Dates: Offer ended February 28, 2005.

MURDER MYSTERY MAYHEM AT THE SUNDANCE TRAIL RANCH IN RED FEATHER -- There's been a murder... We will travel back to 1881, to the little town of Roadkill, Wyoming. A number of you will then join Judge Waylon Payne for a weekend at his country lodge, next to the courthouse in the middle of town. You must discover which of you should hang, and why! Or maybe we will go back in time to January of 1936, and Sundance Trail will become an English country lodge. Sir Roger Watersdown, the wealthy owner of Watersdown Beverages, Ltd., will host several of you for a weekend party here at the ranch. But the party ends when murder is discovered, and you must determine who among you committed the dastardly crime. Come join us for a weekend of mayhem and murder! The games are designed to be played in five rounds of investigation, one round with each meal, starting with Friday supper. The final round of accusations and resolution will happen at Sunday's breakfast. Bookings are limited to the first eight players or couples, and restricted to participants who are willing to take a whimsical view of blackmail, larceny, deceit, and murder.

Those of you who are offended by such high-jinks as shady dealings, sordid affairs, and deceptive conduct should not book reservations for these weekends! Plan to ride our horses each morning after breakfast! Dates: April 23rd - 8th -12th, 2005. Cost: $295.00/couple.
