Traveled the Blues Trail up from Louisiana. This is is the perfect place to stay to capture the feel of Delta Blues. My travel partner was thinking I was kidding when I pulled up to the "Lobby" to check in. She still was leery when we were checking in at the desk and asked the girl if the place was... More

I really like the place, but the restaurant is only open for dinner and only from wed on. There are only bands on Monday and on the weekend. I expected a lot more music/bands. Bring food. Plan day trips. Very relaxing place and could be the best place to stay, but mismanaged.

Our group had a great visit. If you enjoy listening to blues music this is a perfect weekend. The accommodations are unique, although we all agreed they could be cleaner, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The restaurant had wonderful food and it's convenient too.

Let's be clear, for blues-loving folks this is THE place to stay at in Clarksdale. It has its own "blues dome" which is very properly decorated where you can eat and listen to good music. The rooms are all in these little charming old-fashioned shacks scattered around the yard, full of music-related artefacts laying about. You get coffee, donuts and... More

I have traveled all over the world, stayed in great hotels, ancient castles, and cheaper hotels, but this place has more charm, excellent service, and sights to see than any other. I grew up in Northeast Ms. on a farm, where we had grain bins, silos, cattle, pigs, etc. To see this very well remodeled place, with so much to... More

Certainly not for everyone, but we enjoyed spending our anniversary here! The staff was friendly, the grounds well- kept, and the bed comfortable. A great place to relax. They capture the spirit of the Delta!

Fantastic place, excellent service and the place has so much history to tell! I am glad we had the chance to experience this! The area has so much blues history, the cabins had a lot of charm, and we got a lot of good advice by the super-friendly girl in the reception. We can safely recommend this to both families,... More

People come from all over to visit and/or stay at the Shack-Up Inn. Come get your fix of Americana and stay in an old, remodeled grain bin or a shanty shack (they truly are rescued sharecropper shacks from nearby towns, cottonfields, etc.). Each shack is fittingly named after something kitchy, bluesy or Delta-ish! The grounds themselves are a step back... More

Stayed as part of a Dixie road trip. This was a fantastic slice of vintage Americana. The shack was comfy, homely and authentically rustic. Sitting on a rocking chair on the porch in the heat of the early evening, amidst the cotton fields, and with the crickets chirruping was a special and unforgettable moment. The shonky shacks and hulks of... More
