Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
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. In the morning we will treat you to a big breakfast tailored to your individual tastes. Vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, no problem for us--we love our guests and we love to cook!

The space
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.

Where you’ll be

Bedford, Indiana, United States

Our house is a block from the Bedford courthouse square, in a mixed residential/commercial neighborhood. Bedford is a quiet little town with some fun things to see and do both within walking distance, such as the new Milwaukee Trail and the nearly 100-year-old Lawrence County Museum, and farther afield, like Blue Springs Caverns, Spring Mill State Park, the West Baden Springs Hotel, and more.

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.

During your stay

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.
