Interesting area to explore! The shacks are definitely an experience, and comfortable enough for two days. Pros: interesting area, fun atmosphere in the bar, helpful staff to tell you where to find live music around town. Cons: the key didn't work on one of the locks and there was a dog tied up outside in the yard next door that...

We wanted to stay at an "authentic" place so we found this one to be the perfect accomodation. It has the soirit of the delta, next to the cottonfields, gorgeous blue skies and calmness. This is not a Ritz but very clean, great location and only 6 minutes from Clarksdale by car. There is a great bar with great beer...

Don't stay here if you insist in being doted upon like a rich preteen girl. Most of the bad reviews are snobby people expecting the Ritz Carlton inside a shack. Come on. Quit being ridiculous. This place is awesome, fun and laid back. Also no kids which is a huge bonus. The staff is super friendly and the shacks are...

Found this place on-line. Thought it was closer to Clarksdale, but it's several miles out. The cabins are probably even less fancy than you might envision. We stayed at Gunny, which is located very nicely near the Rust and the Office, and the bed was quite comfortable, but the furnishing were pretty sparse. You have a coffeemaker, but that's it....

My wife and I spent a couple of nights here in early November for our anniversary. We loved every minute of it. The Pinetop Perkins Shack was perfect. We saw live music on site and ate a great meal at Rust as well. We will be back - with a bunch a friends joining us!

This place may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's pretty clear from their site what it's about and it is as it says on the tin.To us, from England and retired, it lived up to its promise and we loved it - we can't imagine anyone not ...unless it's pink tablecloths, sterilised lavatory seats and obsequious service you...

Spent 3 nights in the Sunflower shack. Really nice accommodation. The Good: Front and back porches, Comfortable/well decorated shack with kitchen, good wifi, good AC, near Clarksdale, they lend you guitars!! The Bad: Well, nothing I can say is really bad about this place. Only thing is that the website made it feel like an authentically rustic experience but at...

Loved our stay. Clarksdale area was cool. Unfortunately, we chose a night without live music at the Inn, but staff directed us to town for some. Clean and comfortable. Allowed us to really relax on the porch and watch the sunset. Hope to return again.
