We have family in Anna and have never been happy with our stays in the hotels/motels in town. I read about The Davie School Inn somewhere and thought we'd give it a try. From now on, we will not stay anywhere else! The rooms are enormous and spotless, the Inn provides everything you could possible need and the staff is... More

We travel a lot! We have only ever stayed in hotels and this popped up on trip advisor. We make this trip every year on our way to St. Louis for Thanksgiving with family! We might make this a new tradition!

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay here in October. Gary's breakfasts were excellent and the room was very spacious and homey. Gary was great to work with and recommended places to visit in the area. Thanks for a great stay during our first fall vacation in southern Illinois. I will recommend this to everyone, including families with children.

The 1910 Anna, Illinois school house is now a great Bed and Breakfast. The old classrooms have been turned into individual suites. Each suite still has the original blackboards and book shelves. A fun place in Illinois vine country!

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... More

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... More

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... More
