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.

We think you'll like the art and artifacts from our travels in this room in the former Lawrence County Jail and Sheriff's Residence in Bedford, 40 miles south of Bloomington and an hour from French Lick. There's a queen-sized bed and private bath.


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.

Rowena and her home are so warm and welcoming. The guest room had everything I needed from an extra blanket for a surprisingly cool summer night to refrigerator to stash snacks. But the breakfasts were the best treat of all-- fresh fruit, warm eggs, homemade muffins, and coffee.
