Spend a Night in This Haunted ‘Murder Room’…If You Dare
If you're looking for a weird and wild overnight excursion, have I got a killer idea for you!
The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast is currently auctioning off a stay in one of its most notorious rooms for the 125th anniversary of the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden.
The winner gets a one-night stay for two in the John Morse Room on the evening of Friday, August 4, 2017. This is the room where Abby Borden's body was found, brutally murdered, back on August 4, 1892. Because there is such demand for this room on the anniversary of the murders, the management at the Lizzie Borden B&B began offering the room through an annual eBay auction a few years back.
You can bid on this year's stay by clicking here. The auction ends Sunday afternoon, just after 5 p.m. EST.
The package includes an extended tour of the house with the complete history of the Borden case, as well as some of the history of Fall River, prior to getting to sleep in the Morse Room. A full hot breakfast will be served in the morning, which the listing says is "reminiscent of the last meal served to the Bordens on the day of the murders (with the omission of the three-day-old mutton broth)."
The winner will also get two "I Survived the Night at the Lizzie Borden B&B" t-shirts, two Lizzie Borden coffee mugs and two highly-sought Lizzie Borden bobblehead dolls.
What you do during the night is up to you. Will you actually try to sleep in the same room where Abby was murdered? Or will you stay up all night, hoping to contact the spirits that haunt the Borden house? Heck, if you choose the latter, I could even come by with some of my ghost-hunting gear and help you investigate.
That is, if you're willing to take a "whack" at it.
