Lock Yourself Up for the Night in a Converted Jailhouse

Don your stripes, turn yourself in at the local “Big House,” and live your best criminal life for a night in a jailhouse hotel.

  • Location: The Historic Wykoff Jail Haus is a two-hour drive south of Minneapolis, MN, in the tiny town of Wykoff. The converted jail house is the primary attraction. The town has minimal restaurants, but nearby Preston offers a multiplicity of dining options.
  • Amenities: Microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, picnic table, fire pit.
  • Tripsy Gypsy’s Musings: Wykoff is a town of just 450 people. It’s close to bike trails, trout fishing, Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park, and is especially popular for cave exploration. While limited for dining options right in town, a 15-minute drive to Preston offers a supper club, cafe, pastry shop, sandwich shop, brewing company, bowling alley, and boutique shopping. The jail house is very cozy, nostalgic, and charming. There is a queen bed in the primary living quarters, and bunk beds in the jail cell. The bunk beds are rather narrow, but as a grown adult I was very comfortable sleeping there. An added bonus is that it’s pet-friendly, so my parents brought their four-legged love bug. There is an outdoor patio area with a firepit, and a playground within view of the jailhouse.
  • Cost: $.
