We fell in love with the pictures and booked this 'accommodation' straight away on our trip. And it surely wasn't a mistake. The Shack Up Inn is very unique. Built with abandoned shacks typical to the Southern States in the US. The shacks are renovated inside but looks shabby from the outside. Each Shack is unique and with lots of...

The Shacks are comfortable and the bed linen is fresh -the water is hot and there is air-con and a porch with rocking chair. What more could you want from a Shack ? We went to Clarksdale in search of music and were lucky enough to see Kingfish play in a little gallery-shop-bar. Amazing

My son and I were on a cross country adventure to Utah where he starts a new job. Our 1st stop was Clarksdale and the Shackup Inn. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Other Sky Shack. It was a unique experience! We had beer and barbecue in the juke joint chapel while listening to the blues and then mosied into...

We stayed here twice over the past ten days - once in the Sunflower Shack and once in a bin. Our friends stayed in the Big House. We are all die hard blues fans and we had just a fantastic time. The place is not for everyone - it's decorated with what many people would consider trash - but we...

The first time I went to Clarksdale, I stayed at Shack Up Inn, and I fell in love with the place. Laid back, focused on the Blues. I stayed there numerous times, but my experience in the Cadillac Shack, and it's scary bathroom and cobwebs, sent me away from staying there again. I did go visit the place recently, and...

Stayed in Shack Up Inn for 2 nights in Pinetop Shack. Accommodation was clean. Piano in our house was awesome. Much more better than a stay in a hotel. You just have to be a little bit courageous. Sat on our porch in our easy chairs and had a great and relaxed stay. Close to crossroads and Delta Blues Museum....

As they say, it ain't The Ritz, but you can get that anywhere. This place is unique, laid back and friendly. I've come from Australia and stayed there three times now - twice in the shacks and once in the bins, and will take people there whenever I can!

We only got to stay for one night. Wish we could have stayed another night. This is a fun place with live music at night. So many interesting things to see. Don't plan on watching any tv, but who would want to. Definitely plan to go back.

Stayed there for one night. We stayed in Dogtrot, one of the shacks. Dinner and live musique at night. It was a amazing experience on our roadtrip on route 61. I Can recommand to everyone. It is clean, lot of vintage. Sometimes totally worn out. A once in a lifetime experience. Something different than a boring hotel room.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in March. We spent one night in a bin (in the main building) and one night in the Pinetop shack. We changed rooms because the Pinetop shack was only available for one night. We really liked the Shack Up Inn and would definitely return. Both rooms were very nice. The bins...
