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

Just saw a review in the newspaper about JailHouse Inn and wanted to add that we enjoyed it so very much in our stay a while back. The accommodations were fun, the owners were very accommodating and the food wonderful. All the others we met were so pleasant to talk to and share our trips. Thanks and hope we can... More

When we arrived there was no-one home. The door was open so we went in and called out but no-one came. Eventually we found a note left for us directing us to our room. They have only 12 rooms, in an historic converted jail. The rooms were only 1/2 occupied when we were there. Our room was large. We had... More

The Jailhouse Inn is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. We spent a wonderful long weekend and wish we could have stayed longer. The Innkeepers are delightful. The breakfasts each morning were superb. We stayed in the Detention Room which has an attached deck area with rocking chairs, etc. The Inn, itself, has so much character, history, and personality, that one could... More

My second visit. Once with family and once with husban Both times were better than we expected. Food is excellent and included a stash of homemade cookies. The lock up room is a hoot! Owners are very accommodating. Nearby Dining choices were limited, it would be nice to have a selection of menus available to review.

My husbands comment was that everything was done well here, and I agree! Quality and attention to detail were evident from the flowers surrounding the building to the beautiful presentation of our breakfast (waffles with fruit and whipping cream, fried potatoes, and a fruit cup). The Oriental Room on the third floor was quiet (we never heard another guest and... More

An ideal B&B. Good beds, great breakfasts and gracious hosts. The Court Room, where we stayed, was spacious, quiet and had direct access to a patio with chairs and tables. It is a great place to read, lounge or dine outdoors, I would add a third b for biking. The Jailhouse Inn Is a few blocks from a well maintained... More

Superb hospitality, quiet, clean rooms, fabulous breakfast (they cater to food allergies) and lovely neighborhood. We visited during the Bluff County art show which is well worth the time and drive; lots of talented artists. Will definitly go back.

My cousin and I spent a weekend here. We wanted a place that was near the attractions of Lanesboro but without the hustle and bustle that come with a place like that. We found it at the Jailhouse! Our highlight of the weekend was not having to cook our own meals. Our days got started with a deliciously filling breakfast... More
