My husband, my sister and I stayed during Labor Day weekend and we absolutely loved it!!! Jim is such a character and Katy is such a sweetheart and they make the perfect couple!! You can tell that they care about each and every guest. After reading some of the reviews online we expected a totally rustic cabin, which is what... More

The idea of staying in a restored historic cabin seemed rustic and adventurous. However, rustic shouldn't equate to dirty and poorly maintained. Insects are to be expected in rural areas, especially in old buildings; however, brown recluse spiders in the bathroom and beds are not what one expects at a B&B. Providing some minor cleaning supplies (broom, etc) and insect... More

We heartily encourage & endorse including the Olde Squat Inn in your southern illinois plans! It is unlike any place we have ever stayed. Unique isnt adequate to explain the innovation, preservation, hospitality, location and atmosphere provided by Jim & Katie. Off the beaten path but a short drive to everything the area has to offer. Katie's years working in... More

I wanted a cabin within walking distance of St. Louis, which also allowed pets. This "inn" is exactly what we were looking for! Cozy, rustic, and secluded were all things we wanted, and exactly what we got (we stayed in the Lake Cabin). We were surprised to find the real wood burning stove already going when we arrived (which my... More

We read many reviews of the Old Squat Inn before reserving. As with most previews, we took each with a grain of salt. We tend to like those with one star for "too secluded" or "not very kid friendly". I was entertained by one for the Old Squat Inn (a collection of reconstructed log homes from the 1800s) that said...

We were looking for a pet friendly b & b for our trip to Southern Illinois. The Olde Squat Inn definitely fit the bill. Our dog was welcomed by the owners, Jim and Katy as well as their three well behaved dogs: Buster, Lady and Earl. The cabin we stayed in was reasonably priced, roomy, comfortable and full of amenities... More

I am New York City born and bred, currently living in the hectic lifestyle that is Southern California but my wife's family is from Southern Illinois. We recently went to Illinois and stayed at the Inn. We could not have been any happier! Yes, it is not the Ritz Carlton. Anyone expecting such should go elsewhere. Without a doubt it... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Old Squat Inn and we were very disappointed. The rates are way too high for what you get. Our cabin was supposed to have an upstairs with two twin beds and it was locked and filled with storage. The bathroom did not even have cold water in the sink only hot. The bed... More

If you're looking for resort glitz, you probably need to bypass Olde Squat. But, if you're looking for a slow and quiet, relaxed atmosphere with porch swings and walks around the lake, then this is the place. There's just something special about a log cabin that was lived in 150 years ago. The floors might not be perfectly level and... More

We recently stayed at the Olde Squat Inn. One review we had read said something like "with a name like Olde Squat we didn't expect luxury and neither should you." That was the most helpful reveiw we found - when we read it, we knew we'd found the place we wanted to visit. Yes, there are cobwebs. Yes, there are... More
