We were in town for a reunion. The room was quite comfortable. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied with our stay. They were very friendly. We would stay there again when we are in the area.

I grew up in this area, so I was familiar with the village, but this was my first experience with the Inn. Crossing the bridge really does place you in another world. The Inn itself is the real deal - authentic in its architecture and furnishings, but with all the modern comforts we've come to expect. It was one of the most comfortable and restful nights I've spent in a hotel/inn environment. We were in the front at street level, so I expected some noise, but I was pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, Scotch eggs, muffins and hot coffee. And I can't say enough about the hosts. They were welcoming and personable from our first telephone contact with them through our last goodbyes.

Our visit was very enjoyable. We were treated with friendliness and attention our entire stay. The room was great, the food was great and David went out of his way to inform us on the history of the Inn and village. The food was delicious. We had an outstanding stay.

Both the Corner George Inn and Maeystown take you back in time. While St. Louis is nearby, Maeystown and the Inn are a world away. If you visit, you will not be disappointed and you can learn how the Inn got its unusual name.

David and Marcia were delightful and we enjoyed our stay. Had to look 'elsewhere' for something to do in the evening as most places close at 4pm in Maeystown. The breakfast was outstanding Sunday morning as well as the conversations around the table with the Braswell's and other guests. Enjoyed the church service on Sunday morning.

Wonderful historic inn, with really great owners that obviously care about their place and its history. They went above and beyond for us and we will go back again!

David and Marcia treated us like family and made our two day stay very enjoyable. The breakfast both mornings was super.

We had an amazing time during a one night stay at the Corner George! I am looking forward to my next visit. It was a "surreal" experience...I almost forgot that I was missing the NCAA March Madness Tourney due to having such a great time ;-) The people were great and the room had everything we needed.
3.6 on March 11, 2014
The host and hostess were very informative about the local and county historic sites. The spacious dining area has scores of interesting historic and folklore books and dozens of board games if someone just wanted to spend the evening relaxing or having fun with fellow guests. The inn's 'old style' decor has been well preserved and enhanced by its owners.

A nice get away for the day. Friendly people, small town, accommodations were good and yummy breakfast.

I loved this Inn. The whole experience was like stepping back in time! The Innkeepers were lovely & warm w/lots of history & stories to tell. The food was very good w/plenty to eat. The rooms all very unique & beautiful. I will go back. This was already my second visit.

The rooms were spacious. The jacuzzi claw foot tub was incredible and luxurious! The detailed and personalized tour made the accommodations even more special! The friendliness of Mr. Braswell made us feel right at home.

A lovely restored inn. Owners generously shared the history of the inn, the town, and their restoration process. Wonderful breakfasts, more food than we could eat. Visited nearby shops and wineries. Everyone was very friendly. A quaint little town and close to St. Louis. It was great to have a room that slept 3.
5 on October 20, 2013
This was my first b and b experience and thanks to the Corner George Inn, it won't be my last. The service is amazing, It is the friendliest town I've ever been to, and there are so many things to see and do nearby. Everyone in Maeystown makes you feel like they've always known you. If you're looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle, Maeystown is the place to go.

Had a delightful stay over Oktoberfest in this charmingly restored old home. The hosts are quite knowledgeable about the surroundings and work hard to make your stay enjoyable and insightful.

My daughter and I were guests at the Corner George and it was a wonderful ezperience. Our room was nicely furnished, extremely clean and well cared for. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay at the Corner George. Also, the breakfast was OUTSTANDING!! Great host and hostess who were both very willing to help us out with suggestions for sight seeing in the area.
5 on October 01, 2013
Maeystown is a small, historic German town that both takes you back in time and welcomes you with an open heart. The Corner George Inn is the perfect place to unwind. There are so many room options, each with its own special characteristics. David and Marcia are not only your B&B hosts, they also make sure you see all the historic places in town. And the General Store has really cool stuff at very reasonable prices, including handmade Shaker boxes. This is one place you won't want to miss!
4.2 on September 09, 2013
My husband and I love the Corner George Inn. It is a romantic getaway. The owners make sure all of the comforts are met and take a sincere interest in all their visitors. We will be back again soon.
4.4 on August 21, 2013
Venture back to the time of simple Americana! You will encounter soothing creeks, lush green fields, quaint German shops and a bed and breakfast to take comfort. Great food, fabulous town, people and outstanding hosts. Loved it - truly relaxing.
5 on July 25, 2013
The minute you arrive in Maeystown everything slows down. Many buildings have been painstakingly restored. David and Marcia are very gracious hosts and attend to your every need. Corner George is steeped in history and David is well versed and loves haring with visitors. I felt like a fairy princess when my breakfast was served at a long table in the dining room. I had the entire place to myself! Food was superb, my room very comfortable complete with a claw foot tub which was a perfect way to relaxe after driving for 12 1/2 hrs. A great escape from the city and face paced life too many of us are in.
4.6 on July 16, 2013
Corner George Inn provided us with an exciting stay. The rooms were delightful and comfortable. The service was very good and the food was above average. A tour of the historical business area was interesting to say the least. We will certainly be back to experience one of the other rooms and attend one of the many festivals that are presented by the town.

Great breakfasts, comfortable beds, nice town.
4.2 on June 05, 2013
Very much enjoyed our stay. Two suggestions are: 1. The bathroom shower needs a soap dish, or some type of device to place toiletries as a shower is being taken. Had to reach out of the shower to the sink to retrieve soap, shampoo, etc. Also, the sleeping room could use some type of small table or cart to put small personal items on. Otherwise, everything was clean and comfortable.

plan to come back and attend one of the weekend festivals

My boyfriend and I spent a Friday night at the Corner George Inn, and we absolutely loved it. We had dinner at a lovely German restaurant that was just 15 minutes away (and Waterloo is just up the road as well), so we found the Corner George to be conveniently located near town, but far enough off the beaten path to enjoy some relaxing seclusion. We stayed in the Roever Room, quite small but just enough room for the two of us! The owners were very sweet and welcoming, and breakfast was lovely. We really enjoyed getting to know the other couple staying in the inn, as well as the owners. We will certainly be back to the Corner George Inn!
4.4 on November 02, 2012
The innkeepers were extemely nice, the breakfast served both morning we stayed was glorious. the town was small and quaint. We stayed in the summer house and having the bathroom facilities in the main sleeping room was a little awkward. and the fans and heat needed to be updated as they were very loud. But the innkeepers friendliness and cleanliness will have us going back, but maybe visiting another room
4.6 on October 28, 2012
In October 2012, we stayed one night at the Corner George Inn, located in a tiny but idyllic community nestled in the hills of Illinois. Stepping into the inn--which houses a general store and a ballroom--was truly like stepping back into time; the inn has the look and feel of an 1800s hotel. The innkeepers are passionate about both the inn and the community and their respective histories. Our room was very comfortable, and the ballroom provided a great space for just relaxing; I enjoyed playing the piano and the pump organ located in the ballroom. On the afternoon of our arrival, the innkeepers pointed us in the direction of area attractions, and we particularly enjoyed exploring the partially reconstructed Fort de Chartres. The next morning, the innkeepers served us a hearty and delicious breakfast in the ballroom. I wish we had had more time to stay because the inn is so charming and comfortable, the innkeepers are so interesting and dedicated to historic preservation, and there are so many other historic sites to see near by. We plan to come back and bring friends.

Enjoyed our stay- unfortunatly we were in the area for a funeral and could not spend the time we would have liked
5 on September 11, 2012
We felt like we took a step back in time. The B&B is in an old German town away from it all. We enjoyed the local wineries and restaurants. The room and breakfast was great!
4.6 on August 14, 2012
My husband and I stayed one night at the Corner George and we loved every minute! The inn has a rich history and David and Marcia are very knowledgable and love to share the stories. They are both extremely friendly and you couldn't ask for better hosts. The house is charming. We didn't see the loft rooms or the summer kitchen, but the inn itself is full of character, and restored beautifully. We would love to return some day!
5 on June 13, 2012
Wonderful Host, Very Friendly, and Knowledgeable. Will say again.
5 on April 30, 2012
My wife and I had a great stay at the Corner George Inn. Very neat history of the Inn and town, and all of the restoration work is excellent! There are many fine antiques in the Inn as well. David and Marsha are very friendly with a lot of interesting stories to share. They truly are proud of all that they've accomplished and it shows. Good for them! We're already planning another visit.
5 on April 26, 2012
I stayed with a friend in the loft room across the street from the main Inn. It was beautifully decorated and very, very clean. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful and the old town was enjoyable. Don't miss having coffee at the Red Roaster (Arnie's). It was the best coffee I have ever had.. Eileen, Pittstown, NJ
5 on April 09, 2012
Arrived late Friday evening, immediately offered something to eat. Asked how our trip was and what time we would like to have breakfast in the morning. Showed us the other available rooms, where some of the things to see were and then to our own room. He offered a book of local place to eat and gave some recommendations. Saturday and Sunday we had a full course breakfast full of flavor and nutrition. They organized a carriage ride for us, introduced us to store owners in the town and told us of the history of the town. All in all an excellent stay and would like to bring the whole family next time, maybe Christmas.
5 on April 09, 2012
Great retreat for family and friends as well. Very peaceful & quiet, room had lots of charm the old 18 ct stone wall & clawfoot tub a little old with the new. Very knowledgeable innkeepers. breakfast each morning was fantastic. Thank you David & Marcia. Hope to stay with you all in the future.
4.8 on March 25, 2012
We stumbled on this gem online and are so glad we did! Maeystown is a peaceful hamlet retreat around 10 minutes from a larger town and about 30 min from St. Louis. We enjoyed the innkeepers' company and the coffee shop across the street that roasts its own beans. Great town history, charming B&B... What more do you need?
5 on November 19, 2011
The Corner George Inn is truly one of the loveliest B&Bs you'll ever find. David and Marcia create an experience that extends far beyond the typical bed and breakfast. This is a very small town, but there are so many cute places to visit and shop. We loved the General Store (check out the Shaker boxes!), Coffee Shop and Historical Museum. David helped us plan our day with trips to French Forts and hiking trails. Our rooms were very comfortable and the dining room makes you feel like you are visiting in the grandest of style! We will definitely be back!
4.4 on November 09, 2011
My husband and I recently were able to get away for 2 nights and stayed at this lovely B&B. The owners and people in this town make it a class act and a place we will return.
5 on October 24, 2011
Great place to stay. With wonderful room, history all around and the breakfast to die for.

We did not wake up in time for breakfast but the cottage was great and the bed was very comfotable. I would stay here again!
5 on October 15, 2011
My husband and I stayed at the Corner George Inn for our 24th Anniversary weekend. We fell in love with the Inn and Maeystown. We will definitely go back again. David & Marcia exceeded all of our expectations of staying in a bed and breakfast (our first B&B stay). There was another couple there the first night, but the other two nights we had the Inn to ourselves. We felt so at home during our stay and never left the breakfast table hungry. Breakfast was amazing each morning! Late afternoon snack with homemade breads and spiced tea hit the spot and were so appreciated. I kept forgetting that we were guests and kept offering to help clear the dishes or help with coffee in the morning. We can't say enough nice things about the Corner George Inn. The decor is completely Victorian and they did a wonderful job restoring the building. They were also very knowledgeable about the area and we had quite a few adventures at their suggestion. David took us to the coffee shop across the street and to the antique store. Later he gave a tour at the Mayestown Museum. We loved shopping at the general store attached to the Inn and I think of the Inn each time I burn the candles I purchased there. Mayestown and the Corner George Inn are going to be our home away from home! Thanks for making us feel so welcome the whole time!
5 on July 26, 2011
Lovely bed and breakfast. Quaint town. Good dining in the area. Very accommodating hosts/innkeepers. Will go back again.
5 on July 12, 2011
We were completely thrilled with our stay at the Corner George Inn. We were given a free room upgrade simply because it was available, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, the food was fantastic, and Dave and Marcia were great hosts. They were informative about the history of Maeystown and the building and they even helped us to reserve a carriage ride and dinner in the next town over for our anniversary. We would go again and highly recommend anyone to visit!
5 on June 22, 2011
I joined four friends for a two night rendezvous at the Corner George and what a fabulous getaway it was! I came away amazed at what the innkeepers, David and Marcia Braswell, have done to preserve this historic German village. (By the way, the whole village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places!) Their own complex of four restored buildings includes not only the inn but a general store, a sweet shop, an antique store, and a gourmet coffee shop. And to their credit, they are restorationists of the highest quality. The inn has the look and feel of an 1880's hotel which in fact it was. There are period antiques in every guest room as well as the common areas. Yet, they have seen to it that their guests have the creature comforts of the 21st century----central air, private baths with fine Italian toiletries (Poggesi), and WiFi. And the breakfasts were simply delightful! David and Marcia have operated the B & B for over twenty years and it shows. They are wonderful, gracious hosts who have honed their skills to the peak of perfection!!! If you are looking for a getaway to a quiet historic location (a short and easy drive from St. Louis) then this is your destination! Treat yourself soon!!!
5 on June 10, 2011
This is our second stay at the Corner George Inn and an equally delightful stay it was. Maeystown and the inn itself are like taking a step back in time. Wrought with history and unique antiques there is something to look at and learn about everywhere you look. Our hosts David and Marsha were delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed all our breakfasts. If you are looking for a unique getaway this is the place to come.
5 on June 10, 2011
Picture this… A horse and rider ascend Main Street as you leave a gourmet coffee shop, where beans are roasted and grinded before your eyes. Many of the surrounding buildings are made of stone, and a saloon across the way has a wooden bar reminiscent of the Wild West serving O’Fallon dark beer from a nearby micro-brewery. These are some sites we saw upon our arrival to Maeystown, Illinois. Only minutes from St. Louis, this 160 year old German town features buildings lovingly restored to their original splendor, and one is the Corner George Inn. We can’t say enough about our hosts David and Marcia Braswell, the gentle and generous innkeepers who operate this lovely B&B. We had our own suite, which is actually an entire apartment. An exposed stone wall with deep set windows was wonderful to gaze out from our antique iron bed, and in the bath was a claw foot, oh-so-deep, antique tub! David Braswell spent the whole first evening with us explaining the history of the town (he is a German language and cultural scholar), setting up a golf outing and tours for the following day, and then recommending area restaurants. We enjoyed Gallaghers, the Dreamland Palace, and Frederico’s, all near to Maeystown. Breakfast is served in a gorgeous ballroom filled with antique furnishings, and combines a delicious array of fresh fruits, gourmet delicacies, and beverages. For one needing extra rest and a long lie-in, breakfast was delivered to my room, which was a service above and beyond! If you need rest, relaxation, and a visit to the simplicity and elegance of the 19th century, check out the Corner George Inn.
4.4 on May 25, 2011
The stay a the Corner George Inn was a wonderful experience, one I will do again. The little town of Maeystown is like being in a small, quaint Germany town and the people there could not be more accommadating and friendly. The Inn and the Inn Keepers David and Marsha are outstanding host. Lovely!

Loved everything, including the Inn Keepers, who were Extremely nice!! Breakfast was great, such a beautiful town.

Maeystown, Illinois, is nestled into a sloping, timbered bluff above the Mississippi River flood plain, a short distance south of St. Louis, Missouri. Originally settled by German immigrants during the mid-1800’s, the town maintains many of the original structures, one of which is the painstakingly restored building that now houses the Corner George Inn at the town’s center. Innkeepers David and Marcia Braswell make you feel welcomed and right at home upon arrival. Our accommodations were very spacious (in the Loft) and quite comfortable with a quiet serenity helped by the thick limestone, outside walls. Breakfast at the Inn is served to your tastes and it was delicious. For lunch and dinner, a restaurant serving several tasty offerings is just a stone’s throw away. First impressions include the town’s size (less than 200 residents), its architecture, and surprising solitude given its proximity to a major metropolitan area. If you are seeking a quiet get-a-way that’s rich in early Illinois history while enjoying excellent accommodations and food, the Corner George Inn in Maeystown is for you.
5 on May 10, 2011
We stayed with the Corner George Inn on our wedding night, so we got in very late, but the owner stayed up until midnight just to let us in! The room was wonderful; clean and lovely. The breakfast was hearty and delicious! We could not have asked for more. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to everybody for all occasions!
5 on March 20, 2011
The Corner George Inn in quaint historic Maeystown Illinois was a magnificent experience. The Inn was cozy and comfortable and sits in a quiet village in rural Illinois. The Inn is beautifully restored with great attention to detail of the period, and despite this it is very reasonable priced at less than 100 dollars. The breakfast rivaled that of the Ritz Carlton, which consisted of a beautifully arranged fruit plate, artichoke frittata, coffee cake and fresh squeezed orange juice. Maeystown sits about 1 hour outside of Saint Louis and was the perfect stay for my wife and I on our wedding night, The Braswell's beautiful inn did not disappoint. Thank you!

We stayed in one of the "hotel rooms", which would out well. They have rooms in the old hotel as well as rooms in separate buildings just across the street. Very well satisfied with the stay. David is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and provided good suggestions for dinner, etc. The only restaurant "in town" closed, so expect to drive for food other than breakfast. Good to very good options within 15 - 40 minute drive.

We stayed a night over this past weekend. There is no cell phone service in town, which I didn't know ahead of time, but it was nice to get away from it all. The room was exactly as it appeared in the pictures. The only thing I did not realize ahead of time was that the bed, toilet and tub are all one big room, with only little privacy screens. Other than that, it was great. The staff was all super friendly. Breakfast was very delicious!
4.8 on November 03, 2010
Maeystown is so peaceful. My husband and I will be back. The people are very nice and put your needs first. They have the best breakfast so far then any other place we have been.
3.6 on October 12, 2010
The inn itself exceeded our expectations, clean and very nicely decorated. The only disappointment was the breakfast. It was a rice casserole and was very bland and way too much rice. Also, do not like being told a time for breakfast without a small window. We were last to table and everyone was waiting to be served until we sat down. Very embarrassing.
4.4 on April 27, 2010
David was a gracious host and a great travel guide. His recommendations to historic sites in the area, other activities and restaurants in the area were great. His history of the Inn and the town of Maeystown were very interesting. The Corner George Inn is a wonderful place to visit and the breakfast is excellent.
5 on March 21, 2010
We recently stayed at the Corner George Inn with a group of friends. The Dave and Marcia were most kind and helpful. They offered many suggestions on places to visit and how to find them. Dave also gave us a tour of the town. He was very interesting and knowledgeable. The town is wonderfully quaint and quiet...a step back in time. Be sure to stop and listen to the babbling creek. The rooms at the Inn were all well done with antiques and romance. We played games in the ballroom and had an absolutely great time! Breakfast was also outstanding, delicious...and plenty of it!! The Inn and the town were definitely a passion for our hosts and they sure did it justice!
4.4 on February 22, 2010
David and Marcia have ran this Inn for 20 years and it so obvious as to why they are successful! This quaint inn is beautiful, clean and is the hub of the village of Maeystown. They are gracious and giving hosts who know how to spoil their guests.

The Corner George Inn is a wonderful place to stay to get away from it all. The rooms are beautifully arranged, the breakfasts are exquisite, and the owner is the epitome of graciousness.
5 on November 11, 2008
14 years ago we went to Corner George Inn to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Coming back to the same great host and hostess, the Braswells, was an extra treat, especially when we were able to enjoy the 'left' they had restored to make a most desirable getaway for us, with no TVs or telephones and the impressive room with gourmet breakfast delivered to our room, we were sad to leave. The town was indeed Shangrila tucked away in a gulley- a real treat!
5 on September 30, 2008
Clean and comfortable. Well-maintained with attention to detail. Personable host. Guest company is consistently friendly in fun conversation over a Connoisseur's breakfast that is sensitive to individual likes and needs. A nice retreat while visiting other local interests as Forte de Chartres near Prairie du Rocher with its annual events

Very relaxing, a lot to do or do nothing. The bluffs overlooking the Mississippi river, antique store located not to far, very rich in history. We had a wonderful picnic under the trees where 2 streams come together provided by our host. The breakfast was one of the best we've had at any B&B. We will go back.
4.4 on June 30, 2008
The inn was a wonderful find. A beautiful old inn in a quintessential quiet, tiny midwest town. The innkeepers were very knowledgeable, gracious and took the time to make you feel welcome. The inn itself was a wonderful restoration. The tiny town of Maeystown was a wonder...if you want a quiet retreat to a slower paced world, this is it. As someone who has been to so many B&B and been disappointed in so many lately...this one was great

The owners, Dave and Marcia Braswell, have done an excellent job of restoring the Inn to its original splendor. The rooms were delightful, the food delicious, and Dave's knowledge regarding the Inn and the town of Maeysville was fascinating. Can't wait to return.
