Amazing 11 room bed and breakfast created out of a former school.
Davie School Inn is a truly unique bed & breakfast. Created within the walls of an historical school 'recycled' by the owners, the B&B currently has 11 unusually large guest rooms, each with private bath. All the rooms have independent heat and air conditioning to allow for guest comfort, and several of the rooms which were fashioned out of classrooms retain features of the old school rooms, with blackboards, high ceilings, and walls of windows.
A bonus feature of Davie School Inn, because it was a school, is a full sized gymnasium which has been restored, painted, and has a new HVAC system. It still has a stage with curtains and the space where the school?s cafeteria kitchen was (which could be brought back again). The gym has served in the past as a venue for weddings and other public events. Of course, it also has baskets that can be lowered for a true game of basketball! Even the scoreboard works!
The B&B, which sits on 1.627 acres, backs up to a public park, has a side rec yard, and enjoys good parking. It is walking distance to downtown restaurants and shopping. Anna is near a multitude of recreational sites, parks, and activities including wineries, making this B&B a great destination and base for exploring all that southern Illinois has to offer.
Davie School Inn has been awarded the 'Best in the Midwest' by Midwest Living Magazine and is recognized as having the largest guest rooms of any B&B, maybe in the WORLD (well, you know, classrooms are pretty big)!
The business at Davie School Inn has been growing consistently, and today represents an excellent value. The opportunities for creative growth and specialized use (remember the gym?) are almost limitless.
