On lockdown: A safe and secure sleep is promised at the Ohio- based jailhouse

Located in Vermillion, Ohio- around 45 minutes from Cleveland - the quirky B&B can hold up to four people per night.

The privately owned inn can be found in the town's historic harbour district. Built in 1910, in its first guise the property was a library and then was converted into the town's jailhouse.

It has recreated with interior details fashioned in the style of a 'mythical dream castle based in an ancient European-style'. 

The B&B is described on its website as 'perfect for a romantic evening, family vacation, girls or guys night out.' 

Groups can privately hire the inn and spend the night in one of three jail cells including a shower and a master suite.
