The Makanda Inn is located in southern Illinois close to Carbondale. We stayed in one of the rooms in the Inn, they also have beautiful little cottages if you want a bit more privacy. Our room was very comfortable and clean, beautifully decorated, and filled with thoughtful amenities. Plenty of common space inside and out to sit and visit, or... More

We made a trip (our second) with another couple this weekend to the inn with the purpose of enjoying the wine trails. Unfortunately, the Carbondale area was hit with ice and 12" of snow and we were completely snowed in at the inn. What could have been a disaster wound up being a delightful adventure, as Karen and Ron took... More

We spent a fantastic weekend retreat at the Makanda Inn in September. Our room was beautifully decorated with lots of thoughtful and interesting details, and extremely comfortable to boot. The innkeepers, Karen and Ron, are excellent and experienced hosts. From the delicious (and big) breakfasts, to offering us wine in the evening, to building a fire for us on the... More

I stayed two nights in one of the rooms in the inn. My room was wonderfully comfortable and immaculate. The grounds are a great combination of manicured lawns and flower beds surrounded by the beauty of the woods. There are lots of place, both inside the inn and out, where one can read, relax, sip a glass of wine and... More

This was my second time staying at Makanda Inn and it was fantastic! Especially under the new inn keepers. They are so nice, welcoming, accommodating, and a lot of fun! They have also done a lot to spruce up the grounds with colorful flowers. Also, the afternoon sangria was a pleasant surprise! This year we stayed at the cottages and... More

My wife and I just spent Memorial Day weekend in southern Illinois staying two nights at the Makanda Inn. When we arrived it was a little crazy as there was a wedding in progress but the innkeepers Ron and Karen made sure we had a place to park, checked us in, and escorted us the Indigo Cottage which we really...

Our overall experience was great! The only thing that kept me from giving an excellent rating was, on our first night there was a wedding scheduled and the music (mostly the DJ with the microphone) was rather loud for a "peacefull getaway." It would have been nice to know about in advance but, that is the only complaint. Looking past... More

We stayed in the west end cottage with another couple. Two ensuite bedrooms with very comfortable beds and nice archttectural pieces. There are seperate entrances into the cabin from each of the bedrooms. The kitchen came complete with coffee grinder and coffee beans, an especially nice touch. We opted to have breakfast at the lodge (for an extra fee) and... More

Girlfriend and I recently enjoyed a long weekend at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The inn is a beautiful secluded retreat which includes the main lodge and individual cabins. We stayed in the Sienna Cabin. The cabin was a perfect size for a couple trying to enjoy time away from home and also away from the general public. The uniqueness... More
