We enjoyed staying in the West-End Cottage for 2 nights in June 2014. The house is very cute, well-maintained and clean. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and it was very convenient to have a full kitchen with full-sized refrigerator, stove, microwave, all cookware and dishware, etc. There is also a firepit in the back of the house. It is... More

We stayed here recently for two nights. We chose it for a stop on our travels to explore the area of southern Illinois and liked the green commitment of this facility. The cottage is so charming! Love how the foot of the bed touches the window so you can wake to the woods. All of the construction is from local... More

Well worth the 6 hour drive. The proprietors Heather, Jason & Eric all went well out of their way to make us feel as if this was our own home. The breakfasts were unique and delicious while utilizing local ingredients. The rooms are lovely and decorated very tastefully, with the shower being a favorite! They were full of information for...

I cannot rave about the Makanda Inn enough! We wanteda mini vaca, a relaxing getaway, and some place close to the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Makanda Inn was perfect! What a hidden gem! I can't rave about it enough, honestly. We stayed in the Indigo cabin, which was actually much nicer than the photos appeared. The scent inside the cabin... More

My husband and I took an extended weekend retreat down to the inn. We were hoping for a relaxing experience and that is exactly what we got plus much more. The innkeepers are absolutely wonderful. The breakfast was life changing. The serene and peaceful wooded surroundings encapsulated us in a continual feeling of relaxation and joy. We stayed in the... More

Four old friends met for a "girls overnight" at the Makanda Inn to celebrate a special birthday. The hosts met us at the door with a gift bag of goodies for the birthday girl. After supper at the nearby Giant City Lodge, we spent the evening in the common area of the Inn overlooking beautiful gardens lit by twinkling lights.... More

We stayed at the Makanda Inn over Friday and Saturday night. While there we were able to experience all of the wineries on the Shawnee wine trail, and do some hiking and biking in Giant City State Park. The Inn was absolutely beautiful! The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

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
