Second Visit Did Not Disappoint

5 on August 28, 2016

We returned to the Cornerstone Inn a second time on our way home home from a 2 week all B&B vacation because we loved it so much the first time. This year we stayed in the Garden of Eden room. It was beautiful and so comfortable! We really enjoyed the double jacuzzi after a day of driving. Christine, the innkeeper, suggested a great place for dinner and was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast in their restaurant was included, and made to order.. We will stay here again, and recommend it to everyone.

Nice location Beautiful historic room and bathroom. Noisy air conditioner. Breakfast menu was American style, Continental choice would have been appreciated.

Historic building with all the amenities

I had a wonderful room in this charming B&B and a great breakfast in what used to be a bank until the early 30's.

Great time at Cornerstone Inn

Very nice B&B on Washington Square. Our St Louis group had a fun weekend! Rooms were very spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. We had Gods World, Garden of Eden, and the Presidents rooms. Breakfast and the C-Note Pub food was way too good! As well as the drinks!! We also enjoyed the Mackinaw winery. Thanks Christine and Jerry for a great time! Highly recommend!

Great B & B

Spent the night on 7/18 as a treat for our anniversary. The room, service and meals were excellent. They also had live music on the square.

Very nice bed and breakfast

This was my husband and I first stay in a bed and breakfast. It was such a nice experience. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. I was recommended this bed and breakfast from a co-worker and I would recommend it to anybody who just wants to get away for a short weekend.

Spectacular Use of a Very Unique Space

5 on June 12, 2013

This is an amazing building that used to be a bank that has been lovingly restored into a super unique space. The whole property is amazing. Rooms are huge and have all kinds of eye candy to look at. The common space is great for gathering and chatting. Breakfast was great and best part of all was our innkeeper Christine who did everything she could to make us feel comfortable. We can't wait to return.
