Located in southwest Illinois just 35 miles south of St. Louis, the inn was originally built as a hotel and saloon in 1884 by George Jacob and Sibilla Hoffmann. After the turn of the century the hotel became a residence and the saloon found new life as the village general store. In 1989 after 18 months of restoration David and Marcia Braswell reopened the former hotel as a bed & breakfast. The inn consists of three buildings: the original inn, the summer kitchen and the 1859 rock house. There are a total of six guest rooms each with a private bath.

This was a gem of a place that I didn't even know existed until recently. We stayed in the Summer Kitchen and it was detached from the main B&B. The room was very clean and we had no problem using the WIFI. Marcia and David were extremely friendly and they provided several ideas of what to do in the area. Breakfast was served in a large, Victorian style dining area and it was delicious. I look forward to returning some day!

Several rooms available. Each unique. Highly knowledgable, invested owner. Maeystown is a small town but if you are going there or the nearby fort or on a cycling weekend I highly Recommend this B&B. It's in southern Illinois.

This is like going into a way back machine to the late 1800s , all original building with old furniture right for the era , if you want the Hilton just keep on driving , this is old , old fashioned. Wonderful owners make wonderful breakfasts , it's like going to grandmas house . Owners tell you about the town , history , events just like being with old neighbors except you just met them an hour ago. Cute antique store on the first floor with a nice owner . My wife loves old homes and didn't want to leave , original , quaint , cozy , historic , relaxing ,and peaceful , will be back for sure...

This was the getaway we needed. Spotless room, delicious breakfast, and amazing hospitality. The sausage wrapped eggs were so yummy. David and Marsha are so kind. Highly recommend. Second trip to this spot.

The owners, Marcia and David, are kind and wonderful folks. This beautiful and lovingly restored building from 1884 was cozy and comfortable, and even had central air. David was a wealth of knowledge about the history of the building and the surrounding village. Breakfast was plenteous and delicious with consideration for any dietary restrictions. Though the owners aren't coffee drinkers, they had coffee available for those who needed it. In addition to the welcoming atmosphere of the B&B, the surrounding village has a warmth and welcome to it as well. Marcia and David offered several suggestions of places to visit for food or fun that were within 20 minutes or less driving distance. There were plenty of options for staying busy or just relaxing and strolling around the quaint German village that is Maeystown. The old style skeleton keys and ice cream shop next door were sweet bonuses. We look forward to returning for a quiet get away in the future.
