I love this place. We stayed in the Red House. Lots to see and lots of great pictures. Drove into Clarksdale and visited Ground Zero. Another place you don't want to miss. I'm planning a trip back very soon!!

Planned to stay at the Ground Zero Blues club but it looked a bit dodgy and somebody previously had mentioned the Shack Up Inn so we went there! It's a bit out of town but what a surprise! We loved the quirkiness of the place. Blues playing in the bar, but disappointed they only served beer! We are 60, not... More

GREAT idea, very friendly staff, room basically clean (it's intentionally rustic-- part of it's charm). We arrived a little late, nearly 8pm, for our check-in to the Cadillac Shack. Our check-in experience was delightful-- super-friendly and informative, letting us know exactly where we could catch some live music that night. They even loaned my husband a guitar for the night...

We only had one night here for our second wedding anniversary and I wish we could have stayed for longer. Definitely unique, an anniversary I will always remember! If youre going to stay anywhere in Clarksdale, stay here, doubt you'd regret it!

This is an arty, funky, shabby-chic kind of place, fun and different, not your average Holiday Inn. It's clean and provides comfortable beds and linens, a good amount of space, friendly people, a bar-restaurant, a place to do laundry, and brings to life the old Hopson Plantation. It's the perfect place to stay as far as I'm concerned. Would not... More

I suppose if I were to try and rate this as one would a typical hotel my rating would be different. But listen....this is designed to be a unique, quirky and funky lodgeing experience. If thats not what your looking for, leave the room available for others that are. This place has no problem booking its rooms. We stayed in... More

This was our base for a Delta blues pilgrimage. Out in the country, pretty quiet. The restored "sharecropper shacks" are different, memorable, and fun. Imaginative decor, great porches, no TV. Kitchenette included a stove, not just a microwave. Three nights came in under $300, so not exorbitant. The internet worked well, but only intermittently. The bed was a little smaller... More

This place looked amazing. Shacks all over and old pickup trucks rusting and scattered around. Each shack was almost like a work of art and inside it just got better. It's not the most luxurious place but it has so much character. The staff are so friendly too. During check in the lady was really approachable and at the bar... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights in the Crossroads shack at Shack Up Inn. The shack was comfortable even in the near 100 degree heat! Decent shower pressure and comfortable bed. The staff is wonderful. Wish we could have been there for music in Rust, but will plan our next stay when we can.

Our shack was very comfortable and the staff was friendly. Fascinating area especially if you're interested in the origin of the blues. Mondays and Tuesdays are kind of quiet, so try to go on a Wednesday or later. We'd love to come back.
