If you have any interest in crime, the macabre, or local history, the Lizzie Borden B & B is a must! I bring my Criminology students to visit every semester, and the trip never fails to make an impression. Parking can be tricky; I use this public garage down the street, which is reasonable.

A spur of the moment day trip out the the Lizzie Borden house was a great winter outing. Kat was a wonderful tour guide and the tour was the perfect amount of information as well as speculation on the murders. The house is beautiful and was very interesting. It was great to also be pointed to other points of Lizzie... More

Better than expected. The tour was long and detailed -- about an hour -- and offered many details about the grisly crime and the investigation and trial that followed. You get the story told to you as you move through the house where it actually happened, and there are some graphic photos in them, too. A memorable experience.

I grew up in RI and heard about the Lizzie Borden but was never into it. My wife and I decided to take a tour during the snow storm and it was absolutely fantastic. It is impossible not to be captivated by the story and the many interesting details. As a history buff, I loved seeing authentic architecture, photos and... More

My best friend and I (Both history buffs/ID channel enthusiasts) spent the day traveling from Long Island NY to the Lizzie Borden House and it way completely worth the drive (Not to mention the rain and getting lost halfway through RI). Between the gorgeous presence of the interior, filled with antique furniture and decorative period pieces from the time of... More

We toured the Lizzie Borden House on Halloween Weekend 2015. Our tour guide Danielle was fantastic. The house is in impeccable condition. Danielle and the artifacts make you feel like you were there at the time of the murders. You get an authentic feel for the family and can actually visualize the characters in the rooms. Such a wonderful place... More

My husband had never heard of her. But I am a true crime buff. So of course I had to see the Lizzie Borden house and grounds. It was a great tour, the young girls who greeted us and did the tour for us were welcoming and very knowledgeable. Danielle, our tour guide did a great job walking us through,... More

Me and a friend dropped by the Borden House on our way to the Cape and decided to take a tour. There are two tours, a half hour one and an hour one - we took the half hour option. Our tour guide, Danielle, was very nice, peppy, and informative. She took us through each room and was happy to... More

Attended the tour this past summer with a friend and my 16 year old daughter. My friend and I grew up knowing about the case but never visited. Finally put it on the list. It was interesting. The tour guide, Robin, was enthusiastic and informative. I was glad to learn new information. And I did walk away with a new... More

We visited on a dreary winter day which helped to set the mood as we entered this historic house. Having gone to high school in the area I had always wanted to visit but it was not open to the public back then. The restoration of this property is impressive, as I remember it there was a 60s era print... More
