I have always wanted to see the Lizzie Borden house and am glad that I did it ONCE! The tour guide did a great job and was very knowledgeable about the history. But don’t expect anything great for a B&B. I realize that staying here is all about the show, but for the price (and yes, it is pricy), you would think that the innkeepers would care a little more about the guests’ comfort. We stayed in the Andrew and Emma Borden suite because that one has a private bath. The sink in the bathroom would not drain. The clawfoot tub was terrible. When you stepped into it, it wobbled and it was impossible to stand up and take a shower. There was no place to put your toilet articles in the shower. There was no hairdryer in the room, like most B&B’s. I asked the person working there about this. Instead of trying to accommodate me, the answer was, “Oh, they tend to disappear around here!” At breakfast, they tried to recreate the meal that was served the morning of the murders. I know that the original meal probably wasn’t all that great, but you would think that they would try to make it a little more palatable. The guy who served breakfast even admitted that the “Johnny cakes” were terrible and that it helped to sprinkle them with powdered sugar and cinnamon. We did not see any ghosts or have any unusual experiences, although some of the guests claimed that they did. It was nice that they had guest parking in the back.
