The JailHouse Inn is the Old Fillmore County Jail built in the Italianate architectural style in 1869. The interior of the Inn has painstakingly been restored to its original Victorian splendor. Many aspects of the interior space have been left as they may have been, including the original curved walnut banister at the front entrance of the Inn. Some of the original seven foot paneled white doors remain from when the purpose of the building was the Fillmore County Jail. Today, the JailHouse Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information about the complete history of the Inn, please check out our History Page.

Great place to stay!

4.6 on August 20, 2013

Our room was clean and comfortable and we had our own door to the porch where rocking chairs invited us to sit. Refreshments were available whenever we desired. The breakfast was tasty and the hosts were lovely! All this and the price was fantastic!
