We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Makanda Inn. Words can not truly describe how impressed I was with this place and with our host, Heather. The multiple textures used on the interior have a MidCentury Modern feel so this is not your Grandma's Doilies kind of B&B. We found the location to be perfect for the wine trail and... More

We stayed at the Makanda Inn between 6/17-6/21, and we had a great time! We stayed in the Indigo cottage, which was very nice, met a number of nice people, and had wonderful breakfasts prepared by Heather each morning. Breakfast costs extra if you stay in a cottage, but it's worth every penny. Heather is great, too. Very helpful, very... More

I so enjoyed the Makanda Inn. The cabin was so peaceful and beautiful with many lovely details reflecting the work of local artists and businesses. Even down to the keychain which I'm pretty sure was made by the Rainmaker. Everything about this place leaves you feeling like you've gotten away from it all. Heather (the Innkeeper) was super helpful and... More

Makanda Inn was awesome! Heather took excellent care of us. The breakfast was delicious. The grounds are beautiful, so scenic and serene. This would be an excellent place for a get-a-way during ANY season!

My boyfriend brought me to my hometown of Makanda for my birthday (we now live in St. Louis) and it was the best gift ever! Being in the amazing, quiet, clean air made all of my day to day stress just melt away. The rooms are incredibly clean and comfortable - every little detail is perfect. Heather's breakfasts blew me... More

Wow! I was surprised. A bit off the beaten path and well worth it. Secluded and quiet. A touch of class in the woods. Heather is welcoming and accommodating. And the breakfast, off the charts great. I will be back.

The Makanda Inn is constructed using straw bales - very energy efficient and a good sound barrier. So the walls have a quite unique look. We really enjoyed staying in such a beautiful facility. The lobby and stairs are spectacular. We were there for a family wedding so we did not have the typical experience and really look forward to... More

A friend from work had recommended the Makanda Inn for a getaway. My guy and myself stayed there in one of the 3 cottages and luv'd it!!! The Makanda Inn is a small quaint establishment and priced very reasonable.They have only 3 cottages and just 2 suites in the main lodge. I know that we'll definitely be back again.
