Stayed 2 nights in the West-End Cottage, built a bon fire, listened to the frogs and owls. Also several trains went by but since there was no horn blowing was rather soothing sound. Don't miss breakfast in was awesome. Can't wait to go back

Two nights. Great breakfasts and friendly, knowledgable, hardworking hosts. Train tracks several 100 feet away; trains woke my wife, not I. Property needs some work but it's getting there (front steps slope, be careful!)

Eric and Heather are great Inn keepers. Very friendly and always willing to go above and beyond to make your stay a good one. Will be back for another stay. The cottages are great, clean and away from main Inn.

My wife and I spent four days relaxing in the Siena Cabin and exploring the trails of Giant City. We were rained in for two of them, and what an amazing place to be rained in! The cabin was cozy, homey, and beautiful, with views of a lovely wood and creek. The rooms are fully stocked and perfect for a... More

My son and I spent two nights at the Makanda Inn. It was a wonderful getaway from a busy schedule. It was clean and neat with a wonderful setting in the woods. Eric and Heather (the Inn Keepers) were friendly, helpful and informative. The breakfast was excellent. Make sure Heather fixes one of her smoothies for you for breakfast. :)... More

This bed and breakfast was terrific! It was a weekend that my gf and I will not forget. The hospitality from Eric and Heather was fantastic. The breakfast was something that I would consider seeing at a 4 star restaurant. Can't wait to return to see what it's like in the other seasons! The architecture of the cottages and Inn... More

We had a great experience all around. We loved the atmosphere, the Inn is relaxing and comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic. Room accommodations are what we wanted for a getaway weekend. Eric and Heather were great hosts. Proximity to the wine trail and being close enough to restaurants is a plus. Good balance of being away from it all but... More

This is a great B&B that makes use of green technology , is warm and inviting with lots of attention put into detail and amenities and top that off with perhaps the best B&B proprietors we have experienced. Read other reviews. The breakfast is incredible with fresh and healthy ingredients. We had a bonfire the last night and the staff... More

My boyfriend and I's first mini vacation together. We couldn't have asked for a better location, place, and people. It was serene and beautiful. Eric and Heather were great hosts, the food was amazing, the place was clean, the bed was perfect! :-)

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.
