The Sheriff's House was constructed in 1904 in a dramatic renovation of the old 1850's Lawrence County Jail, using massive blocks of local Dark Hollow limestone.Weather permitting, you can enjoy your delicious breakfast out on the porch.

Our "castle" is the former Lawrence County Jail and Sheriff's Residence in Bedford, about 40 miles south of Bloomington and an hour from French Lick. The Tower Room has a comfortable queen-sized bed, private bath, and interesting original art.


Please note that we are located in Bedford, about forty minutes south of Bloomington and an hour northeast of French Lick. The former Lawrence County Jail and Sheriff's Residence is a very unusual historic landmark--in addition to the Victorian residence you see from the front, in back is a big old jail. The place oozes with local history and a somewhat spooky presence after dark.

Gästers åtkomst

Your second floor room, the first floor common areas (living and dining rooms and the porch), and the yard and rear parking lot will all be accessible. Please ask if you would like to use the kitchen. The top floor of the house is our private family space, but we will show you the view from the tower if you would like to see it.

I am always interested in talking to visitors, so I will interact as much or as little as you want, and time permits. I would also be glad to take you through the old jail if you're interested in seeing it.

Staying at the Sherriff’s House B&B was an absolute delight! Rowena was a delightful and engaging hostess. Her breakfasts were amazing! The room was spotless and the private bathroom was a plus. The tour of the old jail behind the house was a great end to a relaxing weekend getaway. We would definitely stay with Rowena again!

Rowena was awesome! Room was great! Breakfast great! We were in town for a wedding and this was the best lodging in town! We loved touring the jail and hearing all the stories! Rowena has a passion for history and travel. She was a great source of information on the surrounding area and gave us wonderful ideas on things to do! She is the hostess with the mostest!

Rowena is a such a delightful host!! She cooked us the most amazing and extravagant breakfast! We felt so spoiled. We are both gluten free and I am lactose intolerant and she went out of her way to bake us gluten free/dairy free muffins. So sweet!

Really a joy to stay here. Respectful and personal. Architecture very interesting and comfortable. Loved the breakfasts, a different experience each morning. However Rowena and Reza will accomodate whatever your taste. If you have time, recommend getting to know your hosts. Very welcoming, interesting, and enlightening conversation. Already, booked another stay. Highly recommend.

This was my second stay. I felt like I was coming back to visit a friend. Rowena gave me a tour of the old jail which was so interesting. She goes the extra mile to make her guest feel welcome. Thank you so much.

I am a retired Foreign Service Officer. During my career I served in Germany, three countries in Africa, Georgia (the former Soviet republic, not the state), and Washington, D.C. I live with my husband Reza and our cat, Mr. Fuzz, in the former Lawrence County Jail and Sheriff's House, a really cool 1904 limestone landmark one block from the courthouse square in the quiet town of Bedford, Indiana. My husband and I work constantly to maintain, restore and renovate this crazy old castle, but it is still more quirky than elegant, full of reminders of the travels, tastes and talents of ourselves, our family and our friends.

I volunteer a lot of time to local organizations, particularly the Lawrence County Museum, which I will encourage you to visit while you're here, and the Bedford Rotary Club.
