I surprised my husband with a stay in the jail house for his birthday. We really enjoyed the history of the place not to mention the comfort and cleanliness. The innkeepers have thought of every single detail that made our stay awesome. We were also surprised by the town of Vermillion, what a cute place. We had dinner at the... More

If you are in the area (or even close by) I would highly recommend a stay here. Marla and Markos are fantastic, and the place is absolutely divine! They took excellent care of us, even hand delivering a movie (Shawshank Redemption) so we could watch it before heading to the movie site the next day. The attention to detail here... More

The jailhouse is stunning. Every aspect of the stay is covered by the owners. Not only is it a gorgeous place to stay but extremely romantic. We stayed for New Year's Eve and my now husband used the perfect opportunity to propose! Perfect place for a perfect night! Definitely worth the trip any time of year. Snow on the lake... More

We brought my parents here for their 58th wedding anniversary. They stayed in the main room which is very beautiful. We had the 2 jail cells. They are very unique and also very pretty. We loved everything about The Old Jailhouse B&B. I'm always looking for something different and unusual, and this was perfect. The owners are wonderful people. We... More

A beautiful transformation of the old jailhouse in Vermilion, Ohio. Very well done! The atmosphere is great. Very cool how the ironwork was left in place. The shower is one of the best I have ever used. The whole dwelling is tastefully decorated. I enjoyed my stay here very much!

The Old Jailhouse B&B in Vermilion, OH is a delight! When we pulled in, we didn't know what to expect and when the owners opened the door, what a surprise! Just beautiful but still maintaining the uniqueness of a jailhouse. No amenity was spared! It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, loaded with special touches. We can't recommend this B&B enough and... More
