I and eight of my very closest friends had the unrivaled pleasure of staying in Cynthia's one-of-kind Connecticut estate last weekend. You would have had to legally evict us and/or pry us out with large crowbars (we loved it that much), but Cynthia was so nice and responsive that we wouldn't have wanted to make her life more difficult. Have you ever wanted to star in your own murder mystery, minus the murder? Cynthia's house is the perfect place for you to live out your real-life game of Clue dreams. Set on a beautiful lake, complete with paddle boats, each room of this house is more fantastic than the last. The entire weekend felt like one big treasure hunt, and the constant refrain was, "Oh my god. Come check out this _______," as we discovered mind-bending surprises at every turn. I thoroughly recommend a stay at this house for anyone who is a boring person - simply spending time here will make you interesting by default.
