This B&B was an authentic elementary school w/ original chalkboards, built in bookcases, etc) The receptionist was owner Lyle who is personable & welcoming. He was full of local recommendations for hiking & eating. The rooms are spacious & have big picture windows. There were games, movies, & fresh flowers. Safe neighborhood & fantastic lighted back patio outside a walking trail, pool, community baseball field.
Went to Anna for a sibling reunion and found the Davie School Inn to be a fabulous place to stay. Fantastic breakfast and wonderful Innkeepers Lyle and Tammy. Has the amenities of a nicer hotel, but the quaint feel of an old school. Highly recommend!
I looked for a nice place to stay close to where I was attending a meeting. The locals told me of the Davis School Inn. I reserved my stay sight unseen. When I arrived, I was greeted by the owners. I was shown my classroom where I would stay. All the elementary books, chalk board even the Duck, Duck, Goose circle on the old creaking wooden floor was a very pleasant change from the motel coldness. The breakfast that they brought me the next morning was delicious. I highly recommend the Davis School Inn for your next outing. This was the first time I didn't get into trouble for sleeping in class!!!
My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves on our biking vacation. The inn keepers were awesome, and the room was authentic looking with modern amenities such as a jacuzzi tub. The homemade full breakfast each morning made us smile and our appetite full. My wife and I would definitely stay here again if in the area.
On a previous trip to Anna we stayed at the Davie School Inn and had such a great experience it was a no brainer to stay there again. While being comfortable, spacious and clean you could not ask for better hosts. Lyle and Tammy go out of their way to make sure all of your needs are met. It is truly a unique experience to stay in a mid 19h Century elementary school that has been converted to a B&B. Memories and artifacts from another time abound in every corner of the facility. Every age group will enjoy the experience. We would not consider staying in any other place on future trips to Anna and surrounding cities.
The rooms were spacious, interesting and comfortable. Bathrooms were excellent and up to date. The hot breakfast was the best of all. Our group of 6 ate in the school hallway at a wooden table for great morning comradery and day planning. Please stay here, and shoot some baskets in the gym in your spare time. We took a great walk around the nearby fairgrounds park and the quaint main street. Gift/antique store, Annabelle Market, was as cute as any HGTV store! A gret place to stay when visiting the Shawnee Hills wine trail
We stayed at Davie School Inn and cannot wait to return. What a fun place! This time it was just two of us, but it would be a blast to go back with a large group. Everything was clean. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Some of the best we have ever had. Cooked to perfection, huge, fresh orange juice and coffee. They really take care of you. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They made time to give us tours of the rooms. Each room is decorated differently and is a treat to see and explore, especially if you are into antiques. Oh my, all the antiques. There is a cute deck to sit outside on and enjoy a refreshment in the evening. The Inn is within walking distance of the cute little downtown area which has some cute restaurants and bars. Easy drive to all the wineries on the Shawnee Forest Wine Trail. We highly recommend.…
You will find no place better in Southern Illinois! The inn is unique, extremely clean, well kept and the rooms are huge! Lyle and Tammy are amazing and kind innkeepers who are always onsite to help with any questions or concerns! Not to mention the unbelievable breakfast! Look no further than the Davie School Inn, you will not be disappointed!
We had such a wonderful stay at the inn! This was our first visit and our last get away before our baby arrives this month. Lyle was so friendly and the breakfast was great! The room was clean and so spacious. We will definitely be back!
Such a great getaway location with all of the modern conveniences and attention to detail without losing the historical and "school" charm! Unique, comfortable, clean, and inviting! Breakfasts were delicious, filling, and served to our room! We will be back!
