These were small share cropper shacks that have been turned into renal cabins. Its like going back in time, except with all the necessities you need. We had a great time and will definitely be going back.

Fantastic . Amazingly themed shacks. As soon as you pull into the parking area you know the fun begins. The only down side was no choice of snacks at the bar. Our entire party thought it was a hoot and we shall return.

I love this place. A bunch of old sharecropper shacks, some rescued, some remade. The innards and outwards are period so don't get all flustered and embrace these rusty old sinks, moaning shower heads and creaking beds! What a homey pleasure it was. I was sad I only booked one night. I'll definitely be back and next time I'll bring...

Stayed in the Cadillac Shack! This is such a cool place to stay. One of a kind experience and we will certainly be back again! Great service, and we even got to borrow a guitar from the lobby to play on the porch of the shack!

This is a really special place, love it. Have been here twice , and hope to come back again. All the cabins are special, everything is old, but it is clean, and the beds are good. Good music in the chapel. Surrounded with cotton fields, feels like stepping back in time, and we just loved it.

This place seems to be getting better - they've added a few more shacks but not changed the super-cool vibe. We were in Sky Shack 2 this time - and that worked really well. How quickly can we get back?

I've wanted to explore the Delta for some time now. So when I finally made the decision to go I wanted to stay on a plantation. I found the Shack Up and decided this was where I was going to stay. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this place. I rented the Gunny Shack on...

Well we have a large group of friends that are really into the blues - and go here often so they invited us to bring in the New Year here in Clarksdale. I researched it - and thought oh Lord what have we gotten into- but it was the best time ever- like they say on the site "The ritz...

The Sky Shack was amazing! A huge space complete with a big leather sofa and our own balcony overlooking the Juke Joint Chapel. Fantastic photos, art, books, music and memorabilia....truly something for everyone. The owners arranged for "Whitney" to pick us up in a 1985 Cadillac limo to take us out on the town for some live blues music that...

Stay in one of the Shack which is appropriately named. If you are wishing to spend a day or more living the life of a poor southerner in the 40s this is your place. The rooms are adored with very old furnishings and poor bedding. The place isnt very clean inside or out. The shampoo offered was leftover from the...
