I have stayed in Legends shack twice now. The shacks are real sharecropper's homes that were moved to this property and renovated enough to make them comfortable. They are heated and air conditioned and the beds are comfortable, but I wouldn't want to cook in the kitchen. There is a stereo for listening to the blues. There has been a...

In absolute truth I was disappointed with The Shack Up Inn but that had nothing to do with the place. What the hell am I talking about then and why five stars? Well I was disappointed as we checked in one day after a festival and had to move on one day before the start of another one. So they...

This place is the BEST place where you can sleep and remain. We had a reservation for only one night, but when we arrived we decided to remain another day. That's an incredible place where you can feel the deepest south ever.

We stayed in one of the bins in the old cotton gin for one night. Loved the Shack Up Inn! Clean, comfortable bed, and balcony overlooking the plantation. Arrived in the evening, got some friendly advice about where to go in Clarksdale for dinner and then sat out on our balcony stargazing before getting to enjoy some great live music...

...exept for the hard part! This place has a story to tell and make sure to only come here, if you want to listen to it! If you let the story sneak up on you, you might catch a whimpse of those days gone by, where the music you came here for, was created. We went to the King Bisquit...

This was our second stay in the Fullilove shack at the Shack Up Inn, and it was even better than the first. If you are touring the Mississippi Blues Trail or in Clarkdale to take in some blues, this is a “must stay” place. It has a great atmosphere, wonderful staff and good music in the bar in the evening....

Stayed for two nights the first in the legends cabin and the second in a grain bin. The cabin is the kind of place you may not think of staying but I urge you to, looks shabby and old and that's the best thing. Inside is perfectly clean and comfortable. Has everything you need for that get away, feel like...

Step into a time machine and take yourself back to the Delta during the birth of the blues. That is the Shackup Inn. It is literally a collection of shacks that have been retrofitted to be liveable as well as the conversion of silos into multiple rooms. The grounds is a collection of junk and memorabilia from that by-gone era....

We stayed in the Cadillac Shack for one night and couldn't be more happy with it. The atmosphere is laid back, the place is filled with so much cool stuff it is almost crazy, and the staff is very friendly. This is not a brand new fancy hotel and that is exactly what made us come here. It is charming...

Loved the experience. To paraphrase the Shack Up Web site, "This Ain't the Ritz." Don't come here for amenities or thread count - come for good food, music and a leisurely trip back in time. We will definitely be back.

Thank greatdane2016
