Our Suites

The Makanda Inn provides lodging as a bed & breakfast in southern Illinois. Additionally, the Inn features four suites, each designed for your privacy and comfort.

In particular, all four suites incorporate the same layout and floor space with varying color schemes.

In the same way, all are lovely, giving every guest a great lodging option in the center of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Giant City State Park is literally across the road, and SIU Carbondale, IL is only eight miles away.

As you enter your suite, you will notice our truth window. The framed window exposes the straw bale wall behind the plaster. 

The guest rooms are suitable for two adult guests. Our suites provide the perfect environment for a romantic getaway. The floor-to-ceiling drapes block out the early morning light allowing for a long restful sleep.

The heavenly king-size pillow top beds with 600-thread-count linens and luxurious bath towels top off the well-planned appointments.
