Experience Gourmet Food and Ghost Cats at Historic Mile High Grill and Inn

The restaurant at the Mile High Grill and Inn seats seventy, is intimate enough for a party of two yet roomy enough for your bachelorette party of twelve. The Mile High Inn, located upstairs from the Mile High Grill is quaint and infused with Victorian high ceilings, original oil paintings and most importantly, cozy and comfortable beds. The Mile High Grill and Inn truly complement each other. With live entertainment every weekend, the Grill is a great place to enjoy the local atmosphere. If your goal is a romantic getaway, the seven room Bed and Breakfast is the place for you.

Built in 1899, the Clinkscale Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Jerome Historic District, 66000196.) These walls have seen it all. Undertakers, madams, a candy store and even a ghost kitty have all resided here at one point or another. Some still do. Our invisible residents have been known to play a few pranks on guests and staff alike, often moving towels and pillows. If your bedding appears ruffled or ‘dented’ in one specific spot or you feel something rubbing against your legs, don’t be alarmed, it’s only Sipps, the resident ghost kitty. You can try to pet him, but then you would just look silly. If you want to hear more about the ghosts of Jerome, jump on a haunted Tour of Jerome.

Owner Liz Gale has been in Jerome in one form or another since 1968. Her passion isn’t just the Mile High Grill, her passion is Jerome. Seriously. It really is Jerome. In all of its copper mining, ghost haunting, motorcycle riding, crazy, hippie, openly liberal, closeted republican, artist, intelligent, informed, dog loving, beer chugging, gay friendly, wine sipping, story-telling, book reading, the local drinking on the steps watching the tourists, you never know if you’re talking to a best-selling author, rock star or guy living in a tent on the hill glory, she can’t imagine being anywhere else.
