We spent a night in the "chicken coop" and enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to stay another night. As the chicken coop was booked for the second night, we had to move to another shack which ended up being a good thing as we got to experience the charms of a different, but equally interesting shack. The place... More

We stayed here on our way to NO and it was a very pleasant surprise. Very cool decorations in the rooms, on the property, and in the bar area. Lots of places on the property to explore and simply relax. Some local folk musicians came through the property playing for the guests. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would come... More

Don't stay here if you need wall-to-wall carpet, paved parking lots or a tiled lobby with concierge. This place is a very accommodating repurposed cotton mill and a bunch of sharecropper shacks dragged from "hither and yon" to serve as your accommodations. They have done a fabulous job improving the shacks to give you comfortable sleeping quarters, but don't expect... More

If you like rusty farm equipment and broke down barns and old gas memorabilia, this is the place for you! I stayed in the Gravy Shack. Clean and comfortable while also old fashioned. You get the combo of mismatched furniture and old Reader's Digests on the nightstand, with a perfectly functional fridge, coffee maker and bathroom. They are in the... More

Just stayed the weekend at the inn.....LOVED IT!!!!!!! We travel a lot and I like the different unique places like this. Not another one like this anywhere. Just what I expect from such a historic town. This place isn't the best place I've stayed.....but not the worst either. IT WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!! If you want the delta experience... More

It's enough of a destination without all the other stuff going on in Clarksdale and Clarksdale is awesome! We had a big group there this past weekend and everyone love it! Truly unique and laid-back and just plain fun. About 9000 photo ops, too.

The Shack Up Inn is one of my top ten stays! This combination of adaptive reuse and preservation of history is indescribably charming. The staff was efficient, friendly and skilled. We opted for the bins.... priced so reasonably at $75 per night I suspected that they would not be up to snuff. Was I wrong! Decor is not overdone, and... More

I loved the idea of this place but was a bit disappointed with it when we got there. Yes, it was really unique and had a great atmosphere as expected. But our shack was a bit smelly and not that clean which spoilt the experience. I was glad I was only staying one night and didn't want to spend too... More

Once again, our visit was top-notch. It's so laid back, that it's impossible to stay stressed out. I have a sigh of relief as soon as I cross the tracks and pull into the gravel driveway. We love staying in a different shack each time and exploring all of the neat things to see in each little hideaway. Can't wait... More

This is one of those places that you will either love or you won't understand. If its the latter, then don't go. There are plenty of people that do understand and absolutely love that place and all that it entails. We were one of those. We spent the afternoon wandering around the property and our cabin, enjoying the unique ideas... More
