Most People Don’t Know You Can Spend The Night In Jail In Ohio For Fun
Here in Ohio, we have plenty of
historic inns and unique places to stay. There’s nothing quite like The Old Vermilion Jailhouse Bed and Breakfast, though. It’s the only place in Ohio where you can find out what it’s like to sleep inside a jail cell overnight—without actually being locked up in jail. Most people surprisingly don’t know about this hidden gem.
Take a look:
Take a day trip to the lovely city of Vermilion in northeast Ohio and explore the Historic Harbor Town District before staying overnight in The Old Vermilion Jailhouse Bed and Breakfast.
You'll find it at 691 Grand St., Vermilion, OH 44089.
Complete with authentic sliding, iron jail bar doors, this historic inn is decked out in an ancient European style meant to remind you of a castle.
Originally built in 1910, it's been impressively restored to give visitors a one-of-a-kind getaway experience.
The Master Suite will make you temporarily forget that you're actually sleeping in an old jailhouse.
It features a queen size bed, television, continental breakfast, wifi and other amenities that you wouldn't find in your average jailhouse.
You'll even find a large shower cell that will make you feel like a king/queen during your stay.
(Note: Check-in is at 4 p.m. and check-out is 12 p.m.)
In spite of the renovations and luxurious decor, much of the jailhouse structure has been retained.
With two twin beds and a queen-sized bed, this private bed and breakfast can accommodate up to 4 guests total.
If you have more than two people in your party and you really want to feel like you're sleeping in a jailhouse, you can sleep in one of two cells across the hall.
Pictured above is the Paradise Breakout Cell.
The Wine Cell features wine barrels suspended above the twin-sized bed and the Greek god of wine.
Each cell even features its own lavatory.
After you've spent your night behind bars (or pampered in the Master Suite), you can sit out back and enjoy your breakfast before leaving.
Reservations for this private getaway are highly recommended. For rates, terms and other information, click
