FALL RIVER, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The “Amityville Horror” house could kill as a bed and breakfast inn – if it’s done right.

The famous house where Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his family in 1974 is for sale and Lee-ann Wilber, who co-owns the spooky Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River, Massachusetts, sees it as prime property for a campy inn.

But she thinks potential innkeepers would have to go all out, just as she’s done with her own successful B&B.

The Lizzie Borden B&B is located in the very house of the Lizzie Borden murders of 1892, and Wilber doesn’t let guests forget.

It’s been recreated to look exactly as it did on the day of the murders – minus the blood – and even offers lodgers the same breakfast of jonny cakes, sugar cookies, and fruit that the victims ate right before their deaths.

Wilber suggests an Amityville B&B do something similar and duplicate the look from the era of the murders, including bad ’70s shag carpeting if that’s what the DeFeos had inside.
