We had such a great stay here. the staff was cool, it was close to downtown and it was a great deal coming in a $50/person for the weekend. Dinner at the adjoining restaurant was delicious - the catfish in particular was amazing (grilled not fried which is a rare find) and served with some kind of sour cream grits... More

Everything about the Shack Up Inn was wonderful. Friendly staff, fantastic atmosphere and history oozing out of its very pores. The Juke Joint Chapel/Rust Restaurant is one-of-a-kind. The wife and I can't wait to come back! (We DID have to move the headboard off of the bed for a night...we put it back though...and I won't say anything else about... More

Stayed here over night on the drive from memphis to new orleans. Accommodation is hillbilly but comfortable with a shack for each person / couple. The place itself has a great sense of style as you can see from the photos, would recommend to anyone on the music trail and blues bands play in the evening. Staff friendly and helpful... More

This place is really amazing, a definite must see, specially for music lovers. I was really excited to to stay there. Unfortunately, at the end of the day, what matters most is a good nights sleep. The mattress was and sagging and the pillows we're flat as pancakes. I'm not fussy, I don't mind going without amenities but waking up... More

When my family was flooded out of our Mississippi River Duck camp, we chose to stay in the Shack Up Inn shacks. They were perfect! We stayed in the Chikin Coop, Tinth Shack, Cotton Shack, and Rich House. Staff was great - plenty of room for all our family and gear.

We were here for 2015-2016 new year eve. A perfect blues experience. In Clarksdale you are in the cracker of blues, and in the Shack Up you are in the middle of the real thing. When you arrive, they give you the key-room and a guitar. Stage, music, beers, nice and frendly people. Hope to comeback soon.

Stopped in Clarksdale on our way to Memphis. My friends found this hotel while planning our trip. The pictures online looked awesome and the real thing didn't disappoint. Large rooms, good looking grounds and friendly staff. We are in Clarksdale but came back to Shack Up for a beer. I had one of the best nights sleep that I've had... More

This was the gem that we found on net. For some reason this never showed up instantly on Google. We were not sure if they would allow 18 year and below to stay as on the website they say they don't. So called up Patty and she agreed as long we had one parent to monitor the kid and at... More

We stayed in the Tinth shack for one night while on a road trip through the south and LOVED it! The grounds are great for walking around and taking photos. The shacks have everything a hotel room would has plus more! TV, Bathrooms/Showers, Coffee maker (with coffee), Fridge, AC, Stereo, Dishes, Books, Board Games along with endless nicknacks to look...

These shacks are a fun place to stay, but definitely not for those looking for luxury. Fun and history, though, this place has it. These are old sharecropper shacks that have been "rejuvenated". Each shack has its own personality and decoration. And yes, it's in cotton field territory. Place was an old gin mill and they do have an inn... More
