Where do I begin? From the beautiful lodge, to the quiet simplicity of the cottages, to the location...the Makanda Inn is the perfect place to stay if you plan on touring the Shawnee Wine Trail. It's located perfectly to be able to do a lot of wineries in any given day, and it's so quiet and serene for that relaxation... More

If you're planning a trip to the Shawnee Forest and the Wine Trail in Southern Illinois you must check this place out. What a great value! Very Nice! It was a great place to stay and the breakfast was outstanding... thanks Heather.

We got married at Makanda Inn at the end of May and it was, hands down, the most beautiful wedding I've ever attended. If you're looking for an intimate, unique experience, the Inn is the perfect location.

Love this little spot! So cozy, comfy, and serene, and the innkeepers are so thoughtful and accommodating! Breakfast was amazing! The location is perfect if you want to do the wine tour, or check out the local breweries!

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
