My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in March. We spent one night in a bin (in the main building) and one night in the Pinetop shack. We changed rooms because the Pinetop shack was only available for one night. We really liked the Shack Up Inn and would definitely return. Both rooms were very nice. The bins... More

The Shack Up Inn is exactly what they advertise. The coolest place to stay if you are in Clarksdale. The entire City is welcoming and accommodating. If we are ever anywhere close, we will stay here again. The staff was pleasant and the atmosphere can't be beat! The food at The Rust was top notch. And the entertainment was great!

This was our lodging for the "Juke Joint Festival" and it couldn't have been a been a better choice. A real Shack but neat and clean and fun, even our dog Brigid liked it. Our 1st night they had a storm come through that had me worried for a bit but the place was solid & now we know what... More

Shack up was everything and more that it said it would be. Travelling solo I had no fears staying, parking my car etc. Make sure you eat at Rust. The food is phenomenal. I can't wait to come back! I guess I'm a few characters short to submit. This is why you're enjoying this waste of time sentence! Bon Voyage!

Spent a couple of nights at Shack Up during the 2015 Juke Joint Festival. Due to my delay in securing a reservation, we were able to stay in the Legends house one night and the Other Sky Shack the second night. Nice Restaurant and jamming bar on location. Clean, neat facilities but the houses are old sharecropper houses so don't... More

Traveling for 2 weeks from Chicago towards Louisiana, and this has been our favorite spot. Shack is clean and tidy, bed was comfortable, and sitting on the porch drinking wine is a once in a lifetime experience. A short drive into town for amazing music. Don't miss this spot.

Shack up inn is a great concept and good for Clarkesdale. I struggle with this review. Let me start by saying, we had fun, it was a special experience. However there is a point where the theme is OTT (over the top) and possibly an excuse for going to the lowest possible standards. We after aĺl, still paying customers. Let... More

Like others I kept an eye on the reviews, in the months leading up to our visit, so I can't really add nothing new, that hasn't already been said. So I thought I'd speak about out accommodation "Sky Shack". The apartment (lol) is very big, with an integral bar/dining/living room/kitchen. Then there is the bedroom, with en suite. I must...

The shack is the best place to stay in Clarksdale ! We stayed in a shack two years ago and had a blast. This year we stayed in a bin. Very neat and clean ! They have food now which they didn't have the last time we stayed. The food and service is very good !!!

Took my friend on a birthday trip to Clarkesdale to hear music at Ground Zero Blues Club. So glad I chose the Shack Up Inn--not only because it is charming in its own rustic way but because of the staff. They made us feel so welcome coming and going.
