There are some pretty strange places that you can stay when you rent with VRBO or Airbnb. This particular one that I found might be one of the weirdest, and it's here in Minnesota.

This is an old 1800s jailhouse. And it actually has bars on one of the bedrooms. That particular bedroom has bunkbeds in it, so great for a family with a couple of kids- they can stay in the "jail".

There is another bed, that is outside of the jail so not everyone needs to stay with bars surrounding them. I'm thinking parents- stick your kids in the actual jail area. Kidding!  Kind of. Or, someone who wants that sort of experience can stay in that area as well.

The description says that it has one bedroom with three beds and one bathroom. So even though one area has bars, everyone is in the same room with one bathroom available.


This jailhouse is located in Wykoff, Minnesota. This is just south of Rochester near the Iowa border.

So if you want to take a short weekend getaway, and stay somewhere you probably wouldn't be able to any other way, unless you were actually arrested, this might be the right kind of weekend for you and maybe the family.

It would definitely be an experience. Stay in jail without really having to do anything wrong in order to get there. In fact, you actually pay to stay in jail instead of the other way around.

It's at least worth a look-see. Check out the full listing/description HERE.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
