    Solid Stay at the Makanda Inn

    Lorraine was easy to communicate with to set up my check in time. She was entertaining another guests family who lived locally in the house for dinner when I arrived. The house was immaculate, built with natural building materials and sustainable building practices. The house was very clean and the room was adequate. I enjoyed sitting on the porch reading my book. The house is immersed in a nature setting with butterflies and wildlife all around. The breakfast in the morning was good and the hosts were nice. Overall I would recommend this place.

    The Makanda Inn was wonderful. We were visiting SIU on a reminiscing vacation, and the Inn was our home away from home. The surrounding woods were very peaceful. And the Inn, beautiful.

    My room was really beautiful. The host Lorraine is very kind & hospitable. There is a breakfast served in the morning and I had a nice balcony. Be warned, u are truly in the middle of nowhere. WiFi is almost non existent. Take a pic of the directions for wherever ur headed before u leave the room. At some point u will find urself driving w/out WiFi, therefore having no navigation.

    Treat yourself

    Wonderful place. Nice bar, great drinks, engaging hosts. Cottage had super comfy bed and pillows, very nice shower, high end linens, and fresh coffee beans from a local roaster for the in-room grinder. Just superb service all around -- we enjoyed our stay immensely. So relaxing and serene.

    Quiet get-away

    This unique inn and cottages deep in the quiet woods offer many pleasant surprises, from ecologically sound construction to delicious home-cooked breakfasts. The innkeepers are marvelous.

    The inn is in a beautiful, quiet setting and has many unique features, including river stone showers and fresh-ground coffee for your suite upon check-in. Hosts Lorraine and Malcolm are very charming and make you feel at home, but provide plenty of space and privacy. They also cook a delicious breakfast with locally-sourced food. While the location is serene, it’s very close to all of the wineries on the Shawnee Wine Trail, state parks and the Shawnee National Forest, and delicious dining. A restaurant will be opening on the lower level of the inn within a few months - excited to try it!

    We were so fortunate to book last minute here, they were so warm and inviting, the food was great and they had a nice beer list too, which was a great respite from the day of wine tasting. 😁

    The whole experience was unique and is designed to be..but not “odd or awkwardly “ unique...it’s a wonderful place that seems out of the way but is just minutes from major highways. Hosts are welcoming and engaging.

    What a wonderful place to stay! We were not there long enough to enjoy it all. We stayed in the Indigo Cabin. It was very cozy and had all the amenities one would need. The area around the cabin was beautiful and we would have enjoyed walking around more, but it was rainy. The owners were very friendly and accommodated us needing to get the key at an earlier time than the normal check in time. The lodge was beautiful and very inviting. We will definitely stay again when back in the area.
