My entire family gathered here for a small wedding and it was absolutely, unbelievably great! It is so quiet and beautiful and the whole place is built sustainably and eco-friendly. Our hosts - Heather, Eric, and Jason - are really what made the stay memorable. They greeted us with local coffee, went out of their way to cater to us... More

Down from st Charles Illinois for a weekend event at siu fantastic stay, we did hiking trails at giant city state park, wine tasting at the many wineries in the area, and grilled out right at the lodge one night.

My husband and I were visiting relatives in the area and stayed three nights over the July 4th weekend. The small town country setting is quiet and beautiful with lots of common space both inside and out. Breakfast was delicious and gave us the opportunity to get to know other guests - not required; but we consider that part of... More

This place is beautiful! My wife and I stayed for 2 nights during the week and had the place to ourselves. Eric and Heather, the innkeepers, were very friendly and made us feel very welcome like we were staying with friends. The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. Heather made us two delicious breakfasts. When we got... More

The Makanda Inn was absolutely wonderful. Our room in the lodge was perfectly appointed and had loads of charm, the setting of the Inn is exceptionally charming and the proximity to the Makanda Boardwalk and Giant City was perfect. Jeff was a great host, we really appreciated his flexibility and attention to dietary restrictions in his impressive breakfasts. I would... More

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
