Unique, fun, hospitable, well-appointed, and remarkably comfortable. This converted jailhouse has been made over with finesse and good taste. The location is convenient walking distance to many restaurants... Breakfast was great. Convenient parking. Very comfortable bed. Free WiFi.

We went for our anniversary and it was a beautiful place to stay. All the details the owners put into this place made it a very comfortable stay. It was very unique and definitely much nicer than we expected. I would recommend staying here and enjoying everything about this jail. It was a wonderful experience.

My husband and I had so much during our stay which was a wedding gift from all our neighbors. You can tell the owners, Marla & Marcos take pride in what they do for their customers. If you're looking for something truly unique this place is it!

Very fun, restored old small town jailhouse . Owners go the extra mile to provide comfort and satisfaction!! Marla and Marcos thought of everything . Fresh cut roses greeted us. Many items are original and restored.- toilets, jailhouse beds, cell bars and doors. Many stain glassed windows, hand painted walls and floors. The bathroom is one of the cells. Toiletries... More

What a wonderful, creative, cool, and clean bed and breakfast. It was such a wonderful unique experience. The owner was very helpful and gave us a full orientation of the place before he left us. I loved everything about the place. The shower with the two overhead shower heads as well as four on the wall was fantastic. The breakfast... More

This very unique B & B has so many superlatives beginning with the proprietors, Markos & Marla. They not only great arriving guests, but take the time to thoroughly explain every detail of the Old Jail. The place is scrupulously clean and supplied to the hilt with an abundance of clean towels, every toiletry known to man, a variety of... More

This place is MAGICAL!! My wife and I stayed here a few days ago for our anniversary. We travel extensively yet live nearby, once hearing about this place on our local news channels and later from my sister who lives in Florida (who also saw it on her local news channels) we knew we had to stay.

My girlfriend brought me here for my birthday. As it was a surprise, I would have never dreamed such a place existed. The proprieters met us there and gave us the grand tour. Everything and anything that you could ask for is provided. The rooms were cleaner than any hotel that I have ever stayed in. Very comfortable bed. Excellent... More

Markos and Marla run the cleanest B&B (and perhaps hotel) we have ever encountered. We are not B&B folks in the truest sense as we prefer a secluded cottage rather than sharing hallways or common areas with other guests. When we get away we wish to spend time with each other rather than be bothered with other guests. The Jail... More
