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.
We have comfortable beds.

You won't have this experience anywhere else. Enough of the old cells has been left for authenticity but the bed is comfortable and it was amazingly (Website hidden by Airbnb) is located near Cape Dorchester so you can combine the stay with a trip to see the amazing sandpipers. T…
