Known now as the Jail Hill Inn, this once jailhouse located in Galena, Illinois is now one of the best-rated B&Bs to stay at in the state. We all know how fantastic Galena is for a quick getaway for the weekend or a girl's trip, but to stay at a jailhouse inn is like the topping on a cake.

The building was built in 1878 as a new jail for the county whose other jail had burnt down due to a fire, it cost $16,000 to build. After closing in '77, the building sat vacant for over 25-years after many attempts to bring the building back to life with restorations that failed. Until 2015 when the current owner took over the building and turned it into a beautiful B&B. It really is luxury at its finest.

Guests to Jail Hill Inn will find themselves surrounded by some of the most bespoke property & room amenities you can find. Each of our guest rooms features custom-made king-size beds with hypoallergenic pillows and fine Comphy Sheets.™

Sign me up! Ya know Valentine's Day is just around the corner I am sure a weekend getaway at the B&B will be the perfect VDay weekend. Nothing was left
