Some people, when it comes to history, if any parts of that history are unpleasant, want to sweep it under the rug and pretend it never happened. The problem with that is, if one ignores history one cannot hope to learn from it. Was sharecropping a hard life? Were sharecroppers taken advantage of by rich landowners? Were a lot of... More

When do you ever get a chance to stay in an old sharecroppers shack, that is comfortable with good Wifi and plenty of room? When in Clarksdale I highly recommend this place as it is only about a 10 minute drive in to town and the staff and atmosphere is amazing. Bar has good craft beer and the restaurant open... More

Clarksdale is a treasure for blues lovers, and I'm glad there was comfortable, reasonably priced lodging just outside town. But I must say that I struggled with some questions: Is the Shack Up Inn an example of creative re-use of American vernacular architecture? Or is it ruin porn? I'm not sure I have an easy answer. The renovation of these... More

We enjoyed our stay in Clarksdale- It was a quiet Sunday night so there was no music in the Shack but we went for dinner in town at the Stone Pony and then tunes at Reds did not disappoint! Comfortable room and friendly people.. definitely recommend!

We stayed here 1 night after 2 nights at The Alluvian in Greenwood. We loved it! We stayed in the"Tinth" shack. It was small but very original. The only suggestion I have is they need better pillows. You get two very thin and well used pillows. The Alluvian can't be beat for comfort but the Shack up Inn can't be... More

On a road-trip through Mississippi in January 2015 from St. Louis to New Orleans between business conferences in each city and was recommended to check-out the 'Shack Up Inn'. Couldn't believe that the owner and manager (Megan) is from Chilliwack British Columbia... a fellow Canadian! I met her and her husband (he is from Mississippi). They were great hosts and... More

One of the best trips we ever took. Loved the Shack Up Inn!!!! Our room was probably the most comfortable we have ever stayed in. WE stayed in the Sky Shack and will be booking it again soon. The Rust Restaurant had great food as well. Overall..a weekend of the blues in Clarksdale and staying at the Shack Up should... More

A few years ago we had visited Clarksdale and drove out to the Shack Up Inn. It was cute! This was our tenth Anniversary and "Tin" is what you are suppose to give as a gift. What better to do is have a "Tin Roof" cabin. We decided to spend out Anniversary in Clarksdale and I made reservations at the... More

We stayed here for 1 night and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the electric blue shack, which has 2 bedrooms and was plenty big enough for the 3 of us. It has a shabby chic feel to it and felt like we had gone back in time, which was exactly what we were looking for on our Deep South... More

This is one of the most fun places we've ever stayed. We didn't really know what to expect but the write up was pretty quirky, so we pitched up. What a good decision. It's totally unique. We stayed in the Sky Shack, overlooking the restaurant, with our own balcony, kicked back with a beer and soaked up the atmosphere. The... More
