This was my second time to the Lizzie Borden house and it was great! I took my daughter who was a scaredy cat but she loved it too. From the moment you want into the gift shop to buy your tour ticket, it was enjoyable. The staff was welcoming and chatty. Our tour was led by Danielle Cabral. She was... More

We booked 2 nights at Lizzie Borden nearly a year ago. It was well worth the wait. I have never been so creeped out and frightened in my life! We slept both nights with the lights on. The tour given by Sue Vickery was fantastic. So much history and so entertaining. I would highly recommend for anyone with an interest... More

I had been to the Borden house before, but a young relative had not and wanted to do so, thus we travelled to Fall River from Newport, RI to visit the house. First, and most importantly, there is free parking behind the house on the grounds, which seems sensible given it is a bed and breakfast. Given the dreadful parking... More

The tour guide Rick was AWESOME. He kept us entertained from the time we entered the gift shop, til the end of our tour. He was extremely informative, and enlightened us on a couple of alternative scenarios that could have happened. We had such a good time, we're going to come back for the overnight stay. A+

I was two blocks away working at the Travelers building, so I had to stop. It was interesting and the items sold in the store were very humorous. When in Fall River, MA, stop by the gift shop at least. They also had a Bed and Breakfast which we did not tour.

My 12 year-old son and I had an amazing time on our tour. Our tour guide Robin was very informative and entertaining. My son was especially excited when she picked him to be the "dead body " of Mrs. Borden. We highly recommend it.

We arrived for the first tour on a Wednesday during school vacation. We were the only ones that had arrived. Our tour was jam packed with information. Our guide was excellent taking time to explain everything in a way that my 8 year old could understand! This tour was far more than I expected. I need to plan another trip... More

We have all sang the song about Lizzie Borden. This house walks you through the experience. Spooky! I understand they have overnight stays? Not for the faint of heart
