I wanted an alternative to the standard, chain hotels, so started looking for B&Bs along my route for this driving trip, and found this place. We chose the Red Room with the king and twin beds, in case my adult daughter or I (not used to sleeping in the same bed) wanted to use the twin. I loved the history... More

My teacher friends and I decided this would be a great place for us to stay as we take in the Shawnee Wine Trail and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the red room which is good for 3 people since it has a king size bed to share and a twin bed. Honestly, the person who decided to... More

Every detail was attended to, price was more than fair and Gary makes a great breakfast. We had never been to the area and he was very helpful. He made us feel like we had a friend we could call if we got lost or needed ideas for what to do. Everyone in the Anna/Jonesboro area was like that. Great... More

From booking to check out, they made everything so easy! The building and rooms are beautiful!! We stayed in the black suite, on the top floor, with huge windows, a comfortable king bed, comfy leather couch, dinette, tv, and large bathroom. Take the time to explore the common areas where you'll find antique school treasures. Gary gave us his cell... More

The Davie School Inn is a unique way to do lodging for a trip. The Brown room held my three friends and I very comfortably, and gave us plenty of space for living and hanging out during our trip downtimes. The made-to-order breakfast, delivered to the dinner table IN OUR ROOM (I cannot stress this enough) was very very awesome... More

This is a unique b&b with luxurious accommodations and hospitality that knocks your socks off. Breakfast is a treat. I think this is my all time favorite place to stay in southern Illinois. We have been here numerous times. It is a great home base for hiking in the Shawnee National Forest.

My room was large, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The historic school theme is a nice touch; I actually found one of my grade school reading textbooks in the bookcase in my room. Revisiting those stories and pictures really took me back. I loved paging through the 1970 National Geographic that was in my room too. Breakfast the next morning was... More

What a magnificent place. We felt very much at home as soon as we walked in the doors. Something like walking into childhood memories. I did not attend this school as a child but lots of us grew up in small grade schools just like this one. Every thing was perfect. Such a refreshing side step from huge corporate run... More
