9 fun and funky vacation hotel stays
Take no prisoners (anymore)
Hotel: Jailer's Inn, Bardstown, Ky.
Description: For almost 200 years, this building functioned as the Nelson County Jail in Bardstown, Ky., now known as the "Bourbon Capital of the World." Today, Jailer's Inn graciously welcomes visitors with antique-decorated rooms. You also can opt to stay in "The Jail Cell," a black-and-white room with two stark bunks. But unlike a prisoner, you'll get a full breakfast (no, not gruel and moldy bread) and a private bath.
Rates: $80 to $145 per night depending on furnishings.
