I tried to make reservations here but Paul was booked, he said stop by when we were in town and he would show us the place. We stayed at another B&B that I was disappointed in but I did not rate that place because it's up for sale. Paul was very pleasant and took the time to show us around... More

We spent two nights here as a family and had a lot of fun. The Inn is located within walking distance to all of down town. We rented two rooms the first night putting our teenagers in the cell and taking a room to ourselves. That was great! All four of us stayed in the cell for the second night.... More

We stayed for 2 nights. It is very clean, staff very very nice and helpful. We stayed in family suite, no ghost activity but the girls just got a kick over the history and the thought of ghosts. Talking and meeting the other guests in the morning during a wonderful breakfast was great. The only down side, isn't with b&b,... More

My group and I really enjoyed our recent stay at this B&B. We had two rooms: The Victorian and The 1812 -- both were beautifully furnished and immaculate. The beds were super-comfy and we were all able to get a good night's sleep after spending the day touring local distilleries. Breakfast was served in the courtyard and was quite good:... More

I have been to many B&Bs and would rate this one as average. When we arrived we waited 15 minutes for hostess to show up. Hand written note said she was giving a "tour". She was in such a hurry to get back to her one tour customer that we received a quick walk to our room to unlock the... More

We first found the Jailer's Inn on the internet and couldn't wait to visit. It was a favorite hiding place of Jessie James and is steeped in history. We slept in the jail cell. It's far from glamorous - but it was a lot of fun. More then just a place to stay the night, the Jailer's Inn is an... More

We stopped in as a family and had two rooms the "jail" room for the kids and the colonial room. The jail cell is rustic but it is a jail cell. The kids liked the uniqueness of it. We stayed in the colonial. It was not modern but nice enough. The bathroom has a jacuzzi/shower combo which was a little... More

We stopped and did the tour. A very nice, quick and informative historical tour with lots of artifacts to look at. They've got shanks and chains, poetry written by the inmates on the walls and lots of articles. All the original building is still there in the back so you really get a feel for how the space was back... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Garden Room as a surprise anniversary for my wife June 26-27. Paul and Amanda go above and beyond to show what southern hospitality is all about. As for my experience during our stay, I asked Joshua if he would like to play on our last night there and did he ever. At 2am I... More

What a unique experience to stay in a B&B that was housed in an 1880's built jail. It housed prisoners until the mid-1980's. Rooms were well maintained, the innkeeper "Paul" was a delightful host and morning chef. We ate out in the garden surrounded by the original wall. Paul was extremely helpful with local lore, suggestions, and yes even discussion... More
