What a fun experience. We stayed at the Inn for two days in October and had a great time. Gary the Inn keeper is a terrific host and handles check-in quickly for you. We even got his cell phone number if we needed anything. He was quick to offer a number of suggestions about what to do and see in...

Do not pass up staying here at The Davie School. It was such a wonderful experience from easy booking to adjusting our arrival time since we stopped for dinner and it took much longer than expected. The rooms are decorated so tastefully and everything you need and want is included. From waters and drinks and snacks and coffee, it was...

You might ask yourself how a location could get this many 5-star reviews. It has because it really is that good! Housed in a beautifully restored 1910 school building, the Davie School Inn is one of the most unique and relaxing getaways. I don't know that the proprietor, Gary, wrote the book on hospitality, but he certainly wrote a few...

Don't cheat yourself and stay elsewhere - get the whole unique atmosphere, area package, and stay at The Davie School Inn!! It is WELL worth it!! Communication was a little slim leading up to our arrival, so I was a little skeptical, but once you get there, they think of EVERYTHING and want nothing more than to ensure you do...

If you are heading to Southern Illinois, stay HERE! My room was a wonderful surprise: roomy, clean (newly renovated) and very comfortable (overslept the first night because the bed was so comfortable). The amenities are superb: bathrobes, slippers, fireplace, outside deck, refrigerator and closets. Breakfast was hearty and delicious. I stayed at the Inn during my business travel and Gary...

I have visited here with friends every September for the last twelve years, and I cannot say enough good things about this Inn. We always are welcomed at the door, offered help with the luggage, and treated like old friends. The rooms are huge, nicely furnished with comfy beds, lots of places to sit, basic mini kitchen, tv, and large...

The best place to stay, Wonderful host and the best breakfast in the USA. This was our 12th year and we are already booked for next year. You can't go wrong staying with Gary at Davies School Inn. We will keep coming. Book early. Word is out and he books up quickly.

Obviously I haven't stayed in every B&B, hotel in southern Illinois but I doubt anyone can find a better place to stay than the Davie School Inn. Besides the history behind the Inn, it was an elementary school, Gary will be your personal chef every morning at a time you tell him. I was there for four days and had...

The owner of the Davie School Inn has done a fantastic public service to Anna, Illinois, and to the exploring public by saving and converting the old Davie Elementary School into a remarkable inn. All those years in elementary school, yet I never spent the night in one. Well, we have now corrected that oversight. Anna is a small town...
