I read about the Shack Up Inn years ago and though it sounded like the coolest thing ever, but never really anticipated a need to visit Clarksdale, MS. However, I decided to plan a little road trip and decided to throw Clarksdale and Shack Up Inn into the mix. We arrived on a Wednesday, right after 4PM, and check in... More

You don't go here for luxury or service. What you get is a unique setting (think post-Civil War indentured workers quarters), a funky room with newspaper clippings and concert fliers, light fixtures that may or may not work, and a Robert E. Lee lamp. So why stay? Because it has real atmosphere. And the view from my second floor room... More

We had read a piece somewhere about Shack Up Inn and had it on our list of maybes for our trip. Then we were chatting with a couple and they told us you have to go. And we did. Reservations seem to be a must. There is a two night minimum for Friday & Saturday. I’m not certain I’d want... More

My son stayed here for a Blues camp. He stayed in a cotton gin bin. It was so cool. Looked like a nice hotel on the inside. Spacious room with a refrigerator and coffee maker. Great air conditioning. Comfortable bed. Flat screen TV with cable. Even had a little balcony with two chairs. Very spacious. Neat Blues memorabilia hanging on... More

We stayed in the penthouse. There was no live music that night, which was too bad, but we had lots of fun walking around the peaceful surroundings and drinking good beer and eating good food. We will be back.

Great time, very unusual, a lot of fun! Love the setup. Having a blues club on site is fun also. We had twelve in out group, it was fun to see how every room was different. The people were wonderful to work with, so helpful. Beds were comfortable and clean.

In February a group of us were looking for a three day trip. It worked up that we would go to the Shack Up Inn for our 28th wedding anniversary. Seeing the pictures does not do the place justice. It is very quant and rustic. When we arrived latter in the evening and got to our shack the AC was... More

We spent 3 nights here. We absolutely loved it. It was exactly what we were expecting, a cosy, authentic shack, rickety and worn, but comfortable too. The air conditioning was a massive plus, as the heat reached 96 most days. We enjoyed sitting on the porch drinking a beer after sunset, looking over the fields and towards the old plantation....

What a fabulously unique place to stay. We found out about this place from friends who wanted to stay here but couldn't fit it into their schedule. I'm glad they told us about it as it's probably one of the most unique and different places I've ever stayed. The shacks are very well equiped (much more than I expected it... More
