Great place to stay. The host was amazing and his cooking skills are beyond fantastic. I'd recommend to anyone! The rooms are gorgeous. The water temperature is a little wonky but it's still worth every penny! Five stars.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Makanda Inn. Our cottage was beautiful, the price was right, and the inn keeper was very pleasant and helpful! We look forward to going back when we can stay even longer!

This was our fourth time staying here. We live in the area, great for weekend getaways. Inn keepers are friendly and wonderful cooks, beds are comfy and rooms are clean. Close to downtown Makanda and the Southern Illinios wine trail.

The Makanda Inn was so much more than we even anticipated! My boyfriend and I were looking for some respite from the holiday shuffle, and wanted to head to southern Illinois for a few days. As you may or may not know, there aren't many options in So IL. It took several hours of searching, but we finally found this... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Makanda Inn! Before checking in we explored the mini-strip and met Dave, a local coppersmith, as well as visited the other few stores in the area where eclecticaly-themed souvenirs are in abundance. A few miles down the road is Giant City State Park, which was beautiful, even in the rain and 40 degree... More

My daughter Emma and I were looking for a quiet and lovely place with good food & in range of the wonderful hiking spots of Southern Illinois for a Thanksgiving getaway. We found all that at Makanda Inn, and such a warm, relaxed welcome from Eric and Heather. Her breakfasts were both substantial and delicious, easily carried us through a... More

Had a fine stay in Sienna cabin. Quiet, restful, and beautiful surroundings. Eric and Heather were pleasant and helpful hosts, who made me feel at home right from the start. Close to an amazingly beautiful Giant City State Park, plus a network of wineries and great antique shops in the area. Enjoy!

While looking for a place fairly close to the Tunnel Hill bike trail, I happened upon Makanda Inn. All of the reviews were fantastic and their website drew me in even more. We definitely were not disappointed. We stayed in Sienna Cottage -- with a king-sized bed facing a large window framing the woods, a luxurious bathroom with fluffy towels... More

Everything about Makanda Inn was perfect!! My husband and I wanted a quiet honeymoon where we could relax and enjoy a part of the country we had never experienced before. The staff was top notch, the breakfast was out of this world and the Inn as a whole is one in which we can't stop raving! We are already planning... More
