Relax and enjoy the casual country living that Water Valley Inn has to offer. The farmhouse accommodates up to 12 guests. If you are looking for a perfect place for your group traveling the wine trails, girlfriend get-away or small family reunion, we are your place.
We are located on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail with 5 of the local wineries within 6 miles of our driveway. An easy drive to Carbondale, Marion, Cape Girardeau and Paducah.
A stay close to 'home' will get you a peaceful drive through the countryside or enjoy visiting local wineries that offer award-wining wines, live music, antique shopping, fresh fruits and veggies from the local orchards or hiking and biking at Giant City State Park or Tunnel Hill.

What a great place tucked away in the heart of the wine trail! Such a quaint home with fun furnishings! Owner goes WAY beyond expectations to make sure the stay is everything and more than you would expect. She supplied everything that you need and more. Food items, toiletries, firewood, you name it. Don't hesitate to stay here!!
