Eco-Friendly Notes

Shacksdale Motel is helping to preserve this rich history by capturing the essence of a sharecropper shack. We take pride in re-using and re-purposing the pieces of the Delta architecture that would be lost to the elements. We have removed the cypress boards from collapsing shacks, pulled the nails, washed and used these planks for our interiors. We have salvaged bead-board and tin, kitchen sinks and claw-foot bathtubs, down to genuine house-blocks supporting our foundations.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The Mississippi Delta, the people, the culture, the way of life that is the blues. A series of connections brought the Shacksdale Motel group together, and our dream to make Shacksdale a reality bonded us together. We each have Mississippi roots, and building Shacksdale is a homecoming celebration of our heritage and an opportunity to preserve a slice of our inheritance.

Pet Friendly Notes

We accept pets. There is pet fee of $15 per night.
