Jailers Inn has long been on my bucket list so we planned a girls weekend at this historic B&B. It did not disappoint. We stayed in the Garden Room which was brightly furnished and had a lovely sitting area where we could tell ghost stories and sip bourbon. Alas, the spirit that has been said to haunt the room did not make an appearance. But the tour of the jail cells will definitely raise the hair on the back of your neck. We can't wait to return in the summer when we can enjoy the beautiful courtyard.
Paul, the owner is super nice and Lisa gave a fantastic tour of the jail! It's a very neat place to stay, but understand that it is 200 years old. If you're looking for something that's without imperfections this isn't for you. I, personally, LOVE old homes and buildings so this was right up my ally! We stayed in the Colonial room...very charming with beautiful antique furniture. The bathroom was a little interesting though. Clearly, they have had to add it on when turning the jail into a B&B as we suspect from the door hardware/locks being on the bedroom side of the door and the old concrete/stone slab that transitions from the bedroom to the bath, and the space heater thing in the wall to heat the room. The tub was jetted, but was a shower combo...without a door or curtain, which was a little odd, but not a big deal for us. Not sure how they would be able to pull that off with such a large tub anyway. Breakfast both days of our stay was DELICIOUS! Paul goes out of his way to make sure you have enough to eat and really takes care of you...so bring an appetite. We really recommend taking the jail tour. It's very interesting. And just a side note, none of the ghosts bothered us during our stay ;) The staff is very informative on what to do, where to go, and where to eat in town & we appreciated their recommendations.…
We stopped here after having lunch next door. We didn’t take a tour or stay at the inn—simply wanted to see the jail. A woman lead us to the jail, explained a few things & left us to visit on our own. A few other people cane in to visit the jail while we were there. I was expecting more but it IS a historic jail and they claim it’s haunted, for what it’s worth. There isn’t much to look at other than three jail cells, one which has a mannequin in prison garb, & several framed newspaper clippings on the walls about the James Brothers & the supposedly “haunted” cell. We also walked upstairs to check out the bed and breakfast and to look at the rooms and decor and we enjoyed that.
My wife, her brother, his wife and I stayed at Jailer’s Inn for four nights. I had screwed up our reservations and Paul and Lisa were very nice to work with us. I can’t say enough great things about them. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and Paul and Lisa were very helpful with other places to to eat and visit. The tour of the old jail was unique and very interesting and yes it is haunted. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend Jailer’s Inn.
We LOVED this B and B! Great location and accommodations. Paul, the Innkeeper, is top notch...and an excellent source for information on the area. Daily breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Highly recommend the Garden Room and/or the Family Suite! Each has two beds. We found the Family Suite living room area to be perfect for our group to congregate and watch our Astros in the ALCS.. lots of restaurants and shopping nearby as well. The B and B is well furnished and clean. Only regret is weather was a little too nippy to have breakfast outside. Lots of history associated w the Inn and surrounding buildings. We headquartered here and took day trips to Lexington, Williamstown (Ark Encounter) , Frankfort, and Harrodsburg. Lots to see and do within 90 miles.
