Your looking at the shack up inn; goes without saying your seeking an authentic Deep South blues trail experience, right? Well you've found it folks! Shack up inn is exactly what it says it is, but words hardly do justice to the feelings of history you feel when you step inside your shack! To top it off, you find remnants (the good kinds- letters, cards, receipts, etc.) of the shacks many previous guests, so you are drawn into what can only be described as a kindred circle of lucky individuals whom you share this experience with!
Being from a small town in what you might call the Deep-er South (Texas), we found the shack to be reminiscent of country cabins, hideaways, etc.
The key is on their website--- it is not the Ritz-- but that in itself is a bit of a misnomer-- your towels will be mismatched- coffee is in a mason jar- etc., etc. but look closely enough and I think you'll share the opinion that shack up inn is more than comfortable, guests are catered to with impeccable service; and in truth the property itself is more well built foundations covered appropriately with later upon layer of authentic blues/shack/deep south items, memorabilia, and fixins'.
Go! Stay! Enjoy!!!
