Enjoy your stay at the Makanda Inn.  We are only 8 miles from Southern Illinois University, so this is a great place for parent visits.
The Masonry Heater is the most energy efficient type of fireplace.  It is located on the lower level of the main lodge where guest can relax.The Makanda Inn welcomes you to Southern Illinois.  Our inn is extremely comfortable and built to be in-sync with the local environment with many forms of natural building exhibited.
Relax in our lounge area.  Enjoy a glass of wine after touring the Southern Illinois countryside or touring the local wineries, shops or great state parks.Enjoy the backyard area, gardens and nature as the Makanda Inn is right in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest. Giant City State Park borders the inn on three sides.
Each room features a very comfortable bed, TV/DVD player, desk/chair and the strawbale sofa bench you see in this photo.A desk for writing (or work - ugh) and a sofa bench for relaxing.  You can also go outside your patio door to enjoy the birds and other goings-on in the woods.
