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...

Our room was just as described! It was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were so nice and worked around our schedule for breakfast. Our meal was served at the time that we had set up with them, and it was amazing!! We had so much food and it was homemade and delicious! Parking is easy and close...

What a terrific time we had at this hidden jewel in Anna IL. This was the first time we stayed at a BB and if other BB's are as enjoyable as the Davie School Inn we will definitely seek them out. We stayed in the Black room which was very spacious and decorated superbly. Our host were very accommodating and...

For our annual girls trip, my sisters, mother, and I booked the Green room for the weekend. We would highly recommend this place! The room was very clean and comfortable! The beds were comfortable and waking up to a very delicious breakfast was a great bonus! It was an easy drive into Carbondale for shopping and dinner!

As a school teacher, I am always fascinated with history, especially of the academic kind. The Davie School Inn is a fantastic chance to fill that love of history, education and comfort all at the same time. My husband and I stayed in the blue room and loved the simple but wonderful decorations. We laughed at the comments on the...
