I stayed here during a weekend round on the Bourbon Trail. The room I stayed in was HUGE but severely lacked amenities for the price. The Jail was interesting, but SERIOUSLY needs attention. It was a bit embarassing for us as we talked it up to our friends. The bathroom in our suite was pieced together with painted, unsanded 2x4s,... More

My husband and I love to visit Bardstown...many interesting people and places. We stayed at the Jailer's Inn this time. Dissappointed is the word I use to describe. Bed & Breakfasts you expect to be old but this place is just delapidated......especially the mattress! There are antiques and then there is just old furntiure that is faded and used. Also... More

My husband and I stopped at this fun little inn in beautiful Bardstown en route to a family holiday in Nashville. The renovation on this old place is remarkable in having preserved interesting elements of its historic structure, while turning it into a really cozy and welcoming place for overnight travelers. No ghostie experiences to speak of - nothing really... More

stayed in the jail cell and was very cozy. Small but 2 people can get around just fine. The water bed was a big surprise !! oddly I felt very safe in there :) The tavern next door had a really great menu

We had talked about visiting bardstown for a couple of years now, and finally had the opportunity. We stumbled on the Jailers Inn while doing an internet search on places to stay. Then I checked trip advisor, and decided it was a definite destination. First let me say the entire area is breathtaking, and full of entertainment possibilities. And luckily... More

My husband and I stayed in the cell room by the courtyard. I had gone into the room early in the day to get something and was by myself, I heard what I could only describe as a moaning sound. I thought that maybe it was a car driving by outside. I didn't say anything to my husband or our... More

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
