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

Based on the online reviews, we stopped over at the Makanda Inn for a couple of days on our way from northeast Missouri to northern Alabama for a family Thanksgiving gathering. We stayed in the Indigo cottage. We were the only guests. Eric was extremely helpful and friendly; we didn't get to meet Heather (this time). The cottage is about... More

We stayed in the Sienna cottage for two nights. It was such a nice place with beautiful woodwork and comfortable surroundings. The main inn was beautiful and cozy. Eric and Heather were wonderful hosts who were very helpful on restaurant recommendations and things to do. They were also very good cooks! We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. We also enjoyed the...

We visited the Makanda Inn during the turning of leaves this fall. It was absolutely beautiful! We stayed in the Indigo Cottage. It was very cozy and had everything we needed for a very relaxing weekend. The breakfast at the lodge was awesome, and the hospitality was unmatched. We will definitely be back to visit. We highly recommend a weekend... More

By all means I would definitely return to the Makanda Inn. Although a little out of the way, I thought the setting was fabulous. Very quiet, the train was an added bonus. The breakfasts were amazing. Heather is an excellent chef and she was great at sharing local eateries. The bed in our room was outstanding. A couple of issues;... More

The Lodge and cabins are fabulous! The lodge owners Eric and Heather wonderful, I love to frequent B & B 's and I have stayed in many. I must say this one really has it all for a Midwest B & B, (cabin, lodge). The bed (super comfy) and the breakfast (so tasty and filling) were both beyond expectations. The... More

We loved the hospitality that Eric and Heather provided; personable and gracious. The property is georgeous and next time I'm bringing my bike back so I can ride those windy, back roads. The rooms were wonderful and exceptionally quiet. We loved the fire in the morning in the great room and chatting with Heather and Eric. Lovely lovely place with... More
