Welcome to the Dorchester Jail BnB, an 1875 Provincial Jail that’s now my home. We have more than one listing for individual cells or the whole jail package. Close to Sackville, Moncton, and Hopewell Rocks, you’re welcome to spend a night in Jail.
But remember it’s an old Jail with “history”. A very unique and comfortable sleep in a real Jail. You get the run of the place when you stay..
This is for Cell # 1 - as seen on CBC news. double bed, two people.
