Everyone turns friendly when they stay in the shacks. Its what the Delta's all about! Never meet a stranger. Relaxing and enjoyable is how I see it. The staff is fine. This is not your normal staff so understand this but with the exception of Guy's pissy (needs a vacation) attitude at times they are fine! I will stay there...

My husband and I got married at the Shack Up Inn on valentine's day this year and it could not have been more perfect for us! If you are looking for a laid back atmosphere and great blues music this will be right up your alley. If you want to be pampered and waited on hand & foot then go...

We attempted a stay here a year ago, but they flat out told us that unless we were from New York or LA, they would not reserve anything for us (It was NOT a festival weekend); They would, however, accommodate guests if there happens to be a vacancy that night. They offered no other explanation as to why. We were...

This was a long overdue bucket list trip for me. I wanted to feel and experience the birthplace of the blues. Staying at the Shakeup Inn is a must for any blues lover wanting to get a real feeling of the Delta. Relaxing and listening to good blues while kicked back on the porch was a perfect end to a...

Great set up. To sit in a rocking chair with a good beer and a good book on your veranda is hard to beat. Other guests all happy to be here as well. Good value for 80$ for your own shack with en suite shower room/toilet. You feel transported to a genuine Blues experience.

I stumbled upon this "hotel" while researching our drive from Memphis to New Orleans and after looking up their website thought it might be interesting. The rooms are surprisingly clean considering their outward appearance but the staff could take a little more care to details. Our bathroom sink needed soap scum removed. All of the "shacks" apparently have kitchens with...

This is a must for any Blues fan visiting the Delta. Our trip was centred around the stay at the Shack Up and it did not disappoint. Totally unique, the shacks (we stayed in Cadillac) are all individual and are grouped around the reception/performance area. We didn't stop smiling from the moment we arrived and would have changed our plans...

great time, great vibe, one of a kind place that keeps getting better w/ ea. return visit. In this era of globalized saminess where food, clothing, hotel rooms are increasingly similar anywhere in the world, I say yes to the shacks! it's a great spot to explore this fascinating area from.

The Shack Up Inn was the highlight of my trip through the delta. It's the perfect setting for the blues trail - peaceful and atmospheric. Staff were really friendly, lots of beer on sale and my shack (Cadillac) was clean, comfortable and full of interesting objects. Beware mosquitoes- got over 60 bites in one night! The Inn is only a...

If you are on a Blues pilgramage the Shack Up Inn is the only place you should consider staying. It's fabulous - the shacks are clustered round a green outside the main building and there is plenty of space so they are quite private. The decor is such fun; we stayed in the Crossroads which is quite large and there...
