Congrats to Makanda Inn for the third year in a row receiving an Excellence Rating from Trip Advisor! We are  absolutely thrilled our guests have spoken and rated us with the highest honors. Please continue to leave us feedback after your stay at the Inn. We love to read the personal stories and memories of our guests time spent in Southern Illinois while staying at Makanda Inn.

We are very excited to announce the opening of our highly anticipated straw bale cottages this August! The cottages will offer an eco friendly alternative to a typical cabin/cottage. Similar, but even more sustainable than the inn the cottages feature living roofs, straw bale walls, earth and plaster floor, reclaimed wood, recycled glass bottle wall features and much more. Please come for a tour while staying at the inn or passing through Makanda- even better book now by calling 618.697.7929.

Finally and what is our most exciting news is the addition of Celeste Longbocco to the Makanda Inn Family. Celeste is our new innkeeper at the property and she is an SIU alumni. She is going to make an awesome addition to the inn and we are very happy to have her here. Celeste enjoys spending time with her brother and sister in Southern Illinois and rooting on her nephews local baseball team.  She has some great breakfast dishes up her sleeve so be sure to check them out!

Have a safe summer!
