Obviously I haven't stayed in every B&B, hotel in southern Illinois but I doubt anyone can find a better place to stay than the Davie School Inn. Besides the history behind the Inn, it was an elementary school, Gary will be your personal chef every morning at a time you tell him. I was there for four days and had... More

The owner of the Davie School Inn has done a fantastic public service to Anna, Illinois, and to the exploring public by saving and converting the old Davie Elementary School into a remarkable inn. All those years in elementary school, yet I never spent the night in one. Well, we have now corrected that oversight. Anna is a small town... More

Our room was just as described! It was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were so nice and worked around our schedule for breakfast. Our meal was served at the time that we had set up with them, and it was amazing!! We had so much food and it was homemade and delicious! Parking is easy and close... More

What a terrific time we had at this hidden jewel in Anna IL. This was the first time we stayed at a BB and if other BB's are as enjoyable as the Davie School Inn we will definitely seek them out. We stayed in the Black room which was very spacious and decorated superbly. Our host were very accommodating and... More

For our annual girls trip, my sisters, mother, and I booked the Green room for the weekend. We would highly recommend this place! The room was very clean and comfortable! The beds were comfortable and waking up to a very delicious breakfast was a great bonus! It was an easy drive into Carbondale for shopping and dinner!

As a school teacher, I am always fascinated with history, especially of the academic kind. The Davie School Inn is a fantastic chance to fill that love of history, education and comfort all at the same time. My husband and I stayed in the blue room and loved the simple but wonderful decorations. We laughed at the comments on the... More

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
