Staying at The Corner George Inn is like stepping back in time, but with all the modern conveniences! The rooms are very sweet and cozy. The owners are helpful and accommodating. We also enjoyed walking through the General Store beside the BNB. There is a Sweet Shop and a Coffee Shop nearby as well. We had a fun and relaxing time throughout our stay at the historic Corner George Inn in picturesque Maeystown, IL.

Want a quiet evening in a lovely space? Visit the Corner George Inn. Easy to find at the center of Maeystown, this BnB has several nice options for lodging. We had a tour of the available rooms, and all looked warm and inviting. The summer kitchen stands alone behind the main building, and it's a very cozy space. I'd definitely like to stay there in the future. We ended up staying in The Loft, and it was spacious and comfortable. If you'd like the option of a fridge, microwave, or coffee definitely pick the Loft. It has a beautiful stone wall, ample seating and a good bed. Breakfast the next morning was great. There was ample tasty food, endless coffee and lots of pleasant conversation with the innkeepers. I highly recommend the Corner George Inn for a great weekend getaway.

The inn was recommended by my daughter's date for his homecoming dance. It was great! We will definitely be staying again. There was not a room available with enough beds for all three of us, so the innkeeper allowed us to bring an air mattress for our daughter to sleep on. Received information about places in town to help us plan our day.

We usually go to Ste Gen for the weekend but the group decided to try something new. We were glad we did! The rooms, hospitality and food were excellent. We look forward to visiting again.

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.
