The Corner George Inn Bed & Breakfast consists of three restored historic buildings: an 1884 hotel and saloon, an 1890's summer kitchen, and an 1857 stone residence/tavern and saddle shop. The inn is located in a historic German village mainly settled by German immigrants from southwestern Germany in the 1850's. Today the village includes a museum, antique shop, coffee shop, general store, tavern and tea room. All are open on Saturdays and Sundays, with the exception of the tea room which is just open on Saturday....

Hard to believe that I grew up less than an hour away and never knew the place existed. Take a step back in time to dig up old memories when life was much simpler. Everything exceeded our expectations.

We knew nothing of this quiet little town before we booked our room at Corner George Inn for our Anniversary. We thought it would be neat to go somewhere totally different. What a great place. The owners are lovely. The room was fantastic. The food was divine. We loved our stay,and hope to come back next year.

My husband and I returned to the Corner George Inn after a 10-year hiatus and loved it every bit as much as we did the first time. David is a gracious, generous, and thoughtful host who loves his town and the people in it and Maeystown is a refreshingly calm nook in a sometimes overstimulating-ly busy world. The Inn was clean, neat, and quiet and breakfast was delicious. The next time we have need of a place to stay in the St Louis area, we'll definitely go back to the Corner George Inn!

Created out of the upper part of the 1860's Georgia Mae Green rock house, this 700 square foot loft features an impressive 14 feet high exposed stone wall, a queen size bed, spacious living room area and a full kitchen. What was once Georgia Mae's dollhouse is now the bathroom with an antique claw foot tub and shower.
This room is named after James McRoberts , the original settler of McRoberts Meadow, the land on which Maeystown is located. McRobert's son, Samuel, was the first native-born U.S. Senator from Illinois. The second floor room is decorated in coutry green and and has a double and single brass bed. Antique quilts add a finishing touch to this light and spacious room. The private bath includes a clawfoot tub with shower.
Named for an early Maeystown family, this first floor guest room features a walnut Victorian high-back double bed and a marble top dresser. The bedspread and lace curtains complement the champagne-colored wallpaper. The private bath includes a clawfoot tub and shower.
Summer Kitchen A separate guest cottage behind the main building, this brick and stone structure served as a smokehouse and kitchen for the early owners. Two of the original limestone walls have been restored. The room features a primitive atmosphere, lantern lighting, an extra-long double white iron bed and a large six foot clawfoot tub.
