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!

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.

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.
