Loved it!

Wonderful atmosphere and comfortable room. Very clean. Dave was so welcoming and went out of his way to show us the area. Breakfast was amazing and we just cannot say enough about how great we think this B & B is. Great value! Go!

Peace, quiet, and good conversation

We visited the corner George inn for our anniversary. The rooms were neatly decorated and very clean. Dave and Marsha are wonderful hosts and the entire town is very welcoming. We enjoyed the shops and peacefulness of this old German town. The inn is located near several places of interest including a couple of wineries. Breakfast was delicious and filled with lots of good conversation from other guests as well as the hosts. It really felt like we were a part of their family...that's how welcoming it was!

A wonderfully quaint lodging

My wife and I spent two nights at the Corner George, and found it to be a delightful experience. The old hotel building has been restored and filled with interesting and quaint objects and furnishings. Alyissa, our hostess (the Braswells were out of town during the time we stayed there) made us feel welcome, provided a full tour of the premises, and cooked a delicious breakfast for us each morning. The community of Maeystown is tiny (350 residents) and basically a "time capsule" of 19th Century German architecture and life. Unfortunately, we were there on a Monday and Tuesday, when the Museum, local tavern, etc. were closed...most visitors to the area come late in the week or on weekends. We would certainly stay at the Corner George again when in that area.

Quiet and cozy

This was our first time at The Corner George. David was very personable and an excellent host. He had information on nearby restaurants that was very detailed and helpful. Some B&B 0wners can be pretentious but he was not one of those. We felt comfortable staying there. The bed was comfortable. The room had many antiques. Despite being on Main Street, it was quiet at night. Breakfast was healthy and tasty. The atmosphere was laid back. I recommend it for anyone wanting a relaxing stay,

We had a blast at the Corner George Inn! The owners were phenomenal! We got treated like royalty and had so much fun. We even signed ourselves up to help with the town's apple butter festival next year! Totally going back!

Lovely stay in the summer kitchen

Very Sweet & Charming BNB

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.

Lovely Stay in Maeystown

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.
