Passed with an A!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Davie School Inn for our one year anniversary. We were looking for something outside the box and this place was perfect. We were greeted right away by the owner Gary. He was a very pleasant and funny guy. He asked what we were planning on doing for the weekend and suggested some good places to go. He took our breakfast order for each day and we must say it was very delicious. He also gave us his personal phone number in case we needed him while we were out of the Inn. We stayed in the Blue room and it was very clean and spacious. The antique furniture and decorations were fun to look at and gave us insight into the historical elements of the school. We had such a great time and will definitely come back. Thanks for the good times Gary!

Great time

Gary was Great, told us places to go visit and mapped out our adventure. Breakfast was at the top of the scale. Very nice people!

7 couples, all cousins, loved the inn, the atmosphere, the rooms, and the wondeful breakfast. Would definitely recommend the inn and plan to return!

Relaxing honeymoon evening...

4.4 on May 03, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for one night during our honeymoon. The room was beautiful, clean, and the largest B&B room we have stayed in. Anna is a nice little town. We visited a local winery and had dinner at the Brick House Grill. We had a very relaxing evening at this inn and wrote out our wedding thank you cards the night we stayed there. Breakfast was perfect and gave us the energy we needed for a morning run before we headed to Ferne Clyffe Park to camp for a night. We will be back to The Davie School Inn. Robin & Bob Risky

A wonderful place to relax

My family has been staying at the Davie School Inn since 2007. Since that time, we have gone from a family of 2 to a family of 4 (now with a 1 year old and a 3 year old). It has become a God-send for us when we visit extended family in Southern Illinois. Gary is very thoughtful and tailors the experience to best fit our needs. The rooms are spacious and comfortable (we have stayed in nearly all of them at one point or another). The small kitchen area in the room comes in handy for snacks and the like. Breakfast is always quite satisfying, and I can't say we've ever gone hungry. I highly recommend the cookie plate and the cheese platter, too. After driving for 7 hours, it was wonderful to have something on which to munch as we unwound our legs. This year was a shorter stay for us than is typical, but it was just magic. It snowed the night we were there, and I will never forget my 3 year old pulling back the curtains to discover it. I am so thankful for this fabulous inn, truly a respite.
