CELL BLOCK

The real thing…”sleeping behind bars” in our circa 1906 four jail-cell “cell block” suite. Sleeping for two, three, four or five friendly inmates in two queen-size beds and one twin bed in semi private jail cells provide a real sense of incarceration. Two wing back chairs and a color television with jail related videos help set the tone for a “slumbering in the slammer” experience. A bathroom with some original equipment and additional amenities such as a two-person whirlpool and step-thru shower keep you from wanting to “escape.”
