Iron bars on windows, 30 inch thick stone walls, and a heavy steel door slamming behind you may not sound like the typical tourist accommodation and Jailer¿s Inn is anything but typical. The historic Jailer¿s Inn, circa 1819, offers a unique and luxurious way to "do time." On spring and summer mornings, as you sip hot coffee and chat with other guests over a full breakfast in the courtyard, it¿s difficult to imagine all of the previous uses of the courtyard¿as a work yard for prisoners crushing limestone, a place to visit forlorn relatives, or even the centralized location of the Nelson County gallows.
