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.

Wonderful B and B

We enjoyed our two night stay with Marcia and David. The Inn is beautiful, in a peaceful setting. Their is one local tavern and a coffee shop a crossed the street. A little German town with lots of character.

Awesome people, Beautiful little town

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.

Lovely and charming!

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!

Beautiful B and B!
