Although my husband and I visited the Inn alone, I can see how this would make a perfect place for a women's retreat or a small family reunion. The rooms are spacious and quiet. With the provided in-room sink, microwave, coffeemaker and small frig, it would be possible to use the large common central areas on each floor to gather... More

We traveled in the late evening, arriving later than expected, and were greeted with friendly, professional service. Our room was very charming, comfortable, and fully equipped to accommodate our fun loving party of 4 ladies. The sheets were the BEST...very soft and cozy! The cleanliness of the room was superior! Gary, the inn keeper, was beyond wonderful! He delivered our... More

Thank you for staying with us! We usually cringe when there is a Bachelorette Party staying but you gals were really great! Nice Friendly. You all acted as adults should and did not bother the other guests. Thank you so much and I am so glad you had a great time. More

Amazing girls weekend. I am a clean freak and really can't say enough about the cleanliness of the inn. The owner, went way above and beyond to make our visit one of the best! I can't wait to come back.

Stayed for a bachelorette weekend getaway doing the Southern Illinois wine trails and can not say enough about the hospitality we were shown by the Inn owners! Gary (owner) even went and got us lunch!!! Rooms were clean and super cute! Great atmosphere and even better breakfast (in bed no less!). The sheets were very soft too :) can not... More

I attend the quilt show in Paducah, KY every year with family and every year we stay at the Davie School Inn, and this was our tenth year! We look forward to our stay there as much as the quilt show. The old classrooms and cloakrooms have been turned into suites while still keeping many of the original classroom amenities.... More

Since we are business travelers, we work. So we normally stay at a chain hotel geared for business travelers. We chose The Davie School Inn because there were no chain hotels close enough to our venue. Let me tell you, it was sooooo hard to concentrate on work when Anna begs to be walked, the wineries cry out for tours,... More

If you're visiting the Anna-Jonesboro, Illinois area for business or pleasure, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Davie School Inn. I was just there on business and found this place to be much more convenient than staying at a chain hotel in Carbondale, Cape Girardeau, or Marion. The owner was incredibly nice and the breakfast was amazing! Did I mention... More

We stayed in The Blue Suite the Saturday after Christmas. As a teacher, I was intrigued by the concept of this Bed & Breakfast but wasn't sure what to expect. This former school building has been beautifully renovated! It is the perfect combination of historical charm and modern comfort. We could not believe how spacious and comfortable our room was....

Situated on a quiet street in picturesque Anna, Illinois, this Inn provides a very unique and wonderful experience. My school room had so much space with super high ceilings, a full wall of nearly floor to ceiling windows, a two room bathroom and kitchen and dining area. You feel as if you have stepped back in time because the school... More
