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

Gary made great recommendations on places to hike and wineries that matched our taste. Rooms was nicely decorated with nice amenities. Only downside was a couple minimally outdated appliances. Certainly a unique place to stay with great and personal service.

No really we want to know. When we first began this journey the Suites had nothing but furniture in them. 1st came... More

We were just passing through and stayed one night in the green room. I think we may have been the only guests that night as it was a weekday and well off-season. Gary welcomed us at the front door and showed us directly to the room. He took our breakfast order and then suggested a place to eat dinner. He... More

The Davie School Inn was an amazing experience. I loved the old school look in the building and the renovations that were made to make it a top notch bed and breakfast. We stayed in the gold room which was over the top. Gary, the owner, was a friendly host and chef. He makes delicious breakfast. He was also very... More

I had stayedvat The Davie School Inn last May on my motorcyle ride to the midwest and was thoroughly impressed. There was no question about where zi would stay again. The rooms ( Purple Suite) was double the size of most hotels I have stayed at. The complementary robe and house slippers was unexpected. Gary was the perfect host. The... More

Frankly I don't like Bed and Breakfasts and don't often stay but this one was very nice. We went to Anna, IL to babysit our 2 month old grandson. Our daughter and son-in-law went to a wedding there and our daughter found this place online. She wanted a bigger room so she made the reservation for them and a room... More

This place is amazing. It's beautiful inside and out! My husband and I went to tour all the wineries for a long weekend. We decided to stay here, as the place looked great! And it was! The owners will greet you and let you know what close by, have maps for you to use, and just very knowledgeable about the... More
