Basic, no luxuries.This place is all about atmosphere and quirkiness.One of the highlights of driving along the Great River Road was arriving at this place at sunset and having a beer on the porch of the Chicken Coop, still not quite believing the place is for real. Even if Clarksdale at the time was not at all the buzzing blues...

If we are ever in the area again this is the only place we would stay. Just off beat enough to be fun . Room was clean and comfortable. Lobby, gift shop, and bar were excellent. Staff was very helpful with information about Clarksdale, the Blues Museum is truly a MUST SEE!!!!

Shack Up Inn is a southern style B&B with historical roots in the cotton industry, blues music, and southern culture. The retired cotton plantation boasts comfy "shotgun shacks" that are super fun to stay in. They also have an amazing staff, food, and music. The area itself is rich in blues heritage. If you ever have the desire to see...

We stayed in the Clairemont in May 2014 and still smile every time I remember our stay. Definitely a fun place to stay with antique furnishings and comfortable beds, very friendly staff! We drove into town for dinner at Ground Zero, which had great food and live band.

and even though you know you aren't staying in original lodgings, it really does have a nice feel to it. The managers running the place are really friendly. Wish we had been there when someone was playing - I imagine that would be outstanding.

Around 60 of us went for the weekend. Cozy shacks and bins. Bill's house was larger and great for the group to enjoy appetizers, football, cards and a fire. Having a bar onsite allowed everyone to have a few beers and listen to live music without anyone driving. The restaurant was good - especially the catered breakfast. During the day...

This place isn't for everyone.... if your idea of accommodation is "The Ritz"... then you should pass!!! But, if you enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience...its a must. This place was a working plantation for many years & now consists of "sharecroppers" cottages. Each different & unique in its own way. They are clean & basic with fridge, micro & coffee pots....

Although we didn't stay here, this out of town venue looked a great place to stay with its cotton picker cottages with porches overlooking a central area of grass olde worlde outdoor decor (rusty old pick-up, old filling station signs, farm stuff and bottle decorated tree). When you enter the main venue you'll find your self in a country style...
