4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Well worth the 6 hour drive. The proprietors Heather, Jason & Eric all went well out of their way to make us feel as if this was our own home. The breakfasts were unique and delicious while utilizing local ingredients. The rooms are lovely and decorated very tastefully, with the shower being a favorite! They were full of information for...

I cannot rave about the Makanda Inn enough! We wanteda mini vaca, a relaxing getaway, and some place close to the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Makanda Inn was perfect! What a hidden gem! I can't rave about it enough, honestly. We stayed in the Indigo cabin, which was actually much nicer than the photos appeared. The scent inside the cabin... More

My husband and I took an extended weekend retreat down to the inn. We were hoping for a relaxing experience and that is exactly what we got plus much more. The innkeepers are absolutely wonderful. The breakfast was life changing. The serene and peaceful wooded surroundings encapsulated us in a continual feeling of relaxation and joy. We stayed in the... More
