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!

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.

If you are planning to stay in the area you must stay here; it is an unforgettable experience. It is a former cotton plantation whose buildings have been converted into rustic lodgings. We stayed in one of the former sharecropping shacks. Furnished with reclaimed furniture and southern curios, it is basic but comfortable and clean. All shacks had screened off... More

It looks rusty and beat up from the outside but our 'bin' was spacious and comfortable with a great bed and all the facilities you'd expect in a modern midrange hotel. And it has soul, and a short easy drive into town past The Crossroads where we stopped at Abe's - great, great food.

If you want to try something different, the Shack Up Inn may be your cup of tea. A fellow guest likened it to summer camp and that's an apt comparison. Our shack, 482 had a porch which looked out onto a central area. You actually mingle with other guests either in the bar area (good beer) or at breakfast over... More
