We just spent a much needed unplugged weekend/reunion with old friends. WiFi is available but didn't use it. Eric and Heather made us all feel so welcome and lucky for us the owners were there too, the hospitality these four provided was 5 star all the way!!' The breakfast was amazing, the beds and sheets are the best I ever... More

Makanda Inn, centrally located to wineries and great hiking. Service from Eric and Heather was outstanding. We were greeted warmly and encouraged to make this place our home away from home. We stayed in one of the cabins which was adjacent to another. We didn't expect that but we still felt like we had our privacy. Simple but we had... More

We took 4 days to get away from it all. We stayed in Suite 3 and loved the view, the porch, the bed, and the river rock shower. The breakfasts were phenomenal and could only be beat by the friendliness and hospitality of the Inn Keepers, Eric & Heather. They told us to make the Inn our home while we... More

We stayed at the little Indigo Cottage. It's a nice way to step away from the reality of a busy life and just live the simple life for a couple days. We didn't have cell phone or wifii service and to be honest...it was nice to know the world didn't know where we were for a couple days and to... More

We stayed in the East End cabin for the weekend. It was cozy and clean. The fire pit got much use, and the couch was perfect for napping. Easy access to Shawnee National Forest and wine trail. We traveled with our high school aged kids. This location would be difficult for kids under age 12.

The Sienna Cottage at the Makanda Inn is one of the best ways to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We celebrated our one year anniversary with this trip. Two days with no cell phone reception and not wanting to watch TV, this was absolutely what we needed and the Makanda Inn provided this in spades! We... More

Went for a weekend getaway with the hubby to visit the wine trails and Giant City park and found this wonderful inn online for the area. We never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and this was the perfect place to stay right in the middle of everything. It is green eco friendly made with straw bales and a... More

We stayed at Makanda Inn for 3 nights in August. My husband and I went there for my birthday weekend. The location of the Inn is so convenient to all the wineries. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was most comfortable and the decor was elegant. Heather and Eric were so friendly. Heather made me a special birthday... More

We enjoyed staying in the West-End Cottage for 2 nights in June 2014. The house is very cute, well-maintained and clean. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and it was very convenient to have a full kitchen with full-sized refrigerator, stove, microwave, all cookware and dishware, etc. There is also a firepit in the back of the house. It is... More

We stayed here recently for two nights. We chose it for a stop on our travels to explore the area of southern Illinois and liked the green commitment of this facility. The cottage is so charming! Love how the foot of the bed touches the window so you can wake to the woods. All of the construction is from local... More
