The Historic Jailhouse Inn Hotel Review

: This inn is located in the old Fillmore County Jail that was built in the Italianate style in 1869. The interior has been painstakingly restored to its original Victorian splendor, including a curved walnut banister at the front entrance. Some of the original seven-foot paneled white doors also remain. Today the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Perhaps the inn’s most interesting rooms are the Cell Block where guests may choose to sleep behind bars, or the sheriff’s former personal bedroom. The Court Room, Bridal Suite and Cell Block each have two-person whirlpools in which to luxuriate after a day of biking, hiking or fishing. Wood-burning fireplaces crackle in many of the bedrooms, as well as the parlor and dining room. If the walls could talk, you might hear many an interesting tale, such as the story of the prisoners who chiseled their way to freedom with their dinner spoons.
