Stayed here for one night during our Harley touring holiday of the Southern States and what a fun place it is, loved it! They are SHACKS but very very clean. It was a lovely experience and well worth staying if you are in the delta, plus the famous Crossroads are only down the road in Clarksdale. There are plenty of...

I can't say enough about the experience of being in the Delta and the people we met there in the short two days of our stay. I have to say, Clarksdale and area have the most friendly people of all the places we stopped at during our Blues tour. We stayed in the Other Sky Shack. All the modern gadgets...

Well...myself and two friends were traveling up through America and stumbled across this in the lonely planet while deciding where to stay that night. Luckily when we called they had a room. It did take us a little while to find as by then it was dark but once we did we got invited into the hall for drinks with...

Exceeded expectations. The shacks look as if a tornado had dumped them there, but in fact are insulated and air conditioned and have fridges, microwaves and wifi. The whole site is full of quirky artefacts such as bottle trees and salvaged farm machinery. This is the funkiest place you'll ever stay. If possible, try to stay on a night when...

There is not a lot of places to stay while visiting Clarksdale. The place has a lot of character. We stayed in one of the bins for three nights. We thought being a guest we would have gotten a discount on the cover charge to see the acts performing. I could have set on the porch and still enjoyed the...

We had a great experience at the Schack up inn. Great staff, good food at their restaurant Rust and a cool schack. With this being said, this hotel might not be for everyone, its truly genuine and something out of the ordinary, but if you`re into five star hotels with luxury this aint for you! We loved everything about the...

Stayed at Shack Up Inn several times. I highly recommend it. Shack Up is as advertised, not a fancy hotel, but a comfortable place to rest. Rust, a new addition, provides wonderful dinners. Delta donuts each morning are a local bonus.

We had a wonderful stay here: 10 of us in 5 shacks. After driving up from NOLA we had a great meal at the Rust restaurant by the shacks and a great night. We all wished we could have stayed longer, and most of our 6 teenage boys swore they'd be back. I recommend this highly, and advise allowing time...

Second time to stay, this time with my son. We booked for 2 nights 2 shacks, Pinetop and Robert Clay. Both have 1 double and 1 single bed. Both have a piano which is nice if you have a pianoplayer in your party. The Robert Clay has a seperate kitchen with bar. Both great. The stay was marvelous, get a...

The reason you go to a place like the Shack Up Inn is the Experience. Experience a little of what tenants lived like back in the day on the plantations. Experience the Blues! The Juke Joint Chapel is located in the RUST Restaurant and it's a great little place to see blues bands. The RUST Restaurant has amazing food. The...
