  • Great tour with super informative guides. Very interesting stories etc. as well. The majority of the house looks as it would have back in the day.

  • We arrived at the bed and breakfast for a 11:30 tour. Our tour guide, Jay, was very attentive to our needs in the gift shop, pointing out the bathroom and gifts for sale. He walked us through the house pointing out all the historical areas and explained very plainly about the crime scene, the people involved in the investigation and the trial of Lizzie. He explained where the final resting place of the entire Borden family was located and explained how to get to the grave site. He was very professional and knowledgeable about the history of the house, location and town! Very happy with the tour! Stayed the night in the Lizzie and Emma suite. Not a Fan of the shared bathroom, but I understand the building having limited space and the owners trying to keep it as true to the original as possible. Enjoyed the free range of the first floor. Everyone was very respectful and friendly and it was quiet after quiet hours. Our light kept going off on its own and at one point in the middle of the night, around 3:00 am I awoke to our main door opening even though I was sure I bolted it shut, and the door to Emma’s room was closed when it had been open when we went to bed. Other then that it was a restful night!!
  • This was our first trip to the Lizzie Borden house. We found parking no problem and our tour was right on time. Our tour guide was very sweet, very knowledgeable but a little too animated for my taste. She gave us plenty of time to check out every room and take all the pictures we wanted and gladly answered our questions. We were not rushed at all. It was very interesting and fun to hear all the history and added facts we never knew. We did pay extra for the basement tour and unfortunately I think that was a waste of money. We were brought down to a very small basement that was half blocked off. The only thing that we got to see in the basement was a wall that has an eerie picture that resembles Lizzie Borden. Lizzie Borden House is definitely worth it if you want something fun and interesting to do.
