It’s great. Period! If you haven’t been, you should go. The tour with basement was about 1:15ish. I loved it. Fascinating possible scenarios of who could’ve done it. Amazing place to go. Our house was fantastic too.

We did the Ghost Hunt and we were very disappointed in how the place is being ran. There were to many people and it was crowded. The woman running the Ghost Hunt was nice but she did not talk about the the history of the house or the tragic events that occurred there. She showed us a box of paranormal equipment that she really didn't know how to give instructions on how to use and when she was done she split us into groups and sent us on our way. There was a very loud group that was laughing and making lots of noise and we made mention of it to her and she didn't ask them to lower there voices out of respect for the other people who had paid to be there as well.

The house is worth seeing but, if you are a paranormal investigator or are big into ghost hunting then this is not going to be worth the money. We found it to be very disrespectful to not talk about the people that were brutally murdered in that house and to allow people to mock the history of the location. Taunting and laughing saying they were pissing of the ghost of Mr. Borden. We ended up leaving before the end because we just could not take the excessive noise and disrespect that was happening. There needs to be some clear instructions before starting letting people know to keep there voices at a minimum and to not taunt the spirits that reside there.

Basically do not waste your money on the ghost hunt if you truly want to investigate the house!!! The owners are running the place as a CASH COW and it is apparent they do not care about the history at all!!!!

Our Paranormal Group stopped by since we were in town to take part in the Night Paranormal Investigation. The location is absolutely beautiful, and full of history. Unfortunately the Investigation was a bust! We expected a tiny bit of back story to the location. We were given a few minutes in each room which was great. However a few of the other groups were very loud and disruptive. They were never asked by the host to keep it down, so we were unable to get any evidence by recordings or video due to background noise. We will definitely have to go back and rent the whole location to ourselves. I'm sure it will be much more pleasurable. ~xoxox #ghostgirlz_dallas

We toured the entire house this weekend. It has beautifully restored and our tour guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. He really made the story come alive. He was extremely patient and answered all our questions. My only complaint is there were about 15 people in our group. I think it would be better at 10-12 because we had to stand in most of the rooms and sometime not all 15 fit. Also, as we moved from room to room I wish we had a little more time to explore some of the pictures and artifacts. The tour guide made the tour so interesting we didn’t want to miss anything he had to say. We really enjoyed this tour and would love to do it again.
