My husband and I found this looking for a last minute place with availability for Valentine's Day. The only room available was the Cell Block, so we decided to try it. It is literally 4 jail cells combined to make a very spacious suite. I never expected it would be so large. It was really cozy! With multiple beds in... More

We enjoyed very much our weekend getaway. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is excellent and there is plenty of it. The innkeepers are friendly and provide excellent service. We love this place!

This is a very cool place. A former county jail, it is set out along that theme, which is fun, but the best part is how nice both the rooms and the common areas are. We stayed in the Detention Room, which has a semi-private balcony (share with one, possibly two other rooms) that we really enjoyed. We also really... More

This place is just the most awesome place we have stayed. Owners were more than awesome and great to chat with. No phone in the room nor a TV unless you ask for it. We had a real fireplace and a great hot tub. The bed was more than comfortable. The breakfast area was great and the food too. Lots... More

we came upon this place totally by accident. Our intention was to stay at a B & B in Lanesboro Mn.All the places we had called in Lanesboro were full! One of the innkeepers in Lanesboro had suggested that we try the Jailhouse Inn in Preston. Boy are we glad that we did. The inn is absolutely gorgeous, and the... More

Wonderful bed and breakfast. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. We were there on a girl trip and all had different rooms which were unique. The beds are super comfy and the breakfast was delicious and the presentation was beautiful.

My stay at the Jailhouse Inn was absolutely wonderful! The coffee and breakfast were great! Fresh fruit, muffin and an omelette with a beautiful presentation. But the bed was out of this world and I have a tempur pedic at home. What a great night's sleep and our host & hostess were fun and professional! This calls for a repeat... More

This was our first stay at the Jailhouse Inn and we loved it! We really enjoyed the drive from Milwaukee, and found the country-side to be extremely scenic and lush. Our room was hilarious and had a giant old-fashioned jail-house style key for the door and the bathroom had a vintage clawfoot bathtub (very rustic). The room itself was extremely... More
