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.

I visited Corner George this past weekend with my boyfriend for a brief getaway from St. Louis. We found it after searching for good B&B's in the St. Louis area. We had never heard of Maeystown before but found the town to be very cute. Definitely tiny! You can walk the entire town pretty quickly. However, the town has some nice historic architecture, and the setting in hilly woods with a creek is lovely. We took a walk Friday night and visited The Tavern, the local bar/eatery, for some standard bar food and a few beers. Just a heads up that in our suite we didn't have phone service or wi-fi. They may have wi-fi in the common area if you need it. I'd ask if that's something you would like. The owners were very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the buildings that comprised their Inn. Saturday we spent the day cruising around the area checking out local landmarks. Just enough to do to occupy a beautiful spring Saturday in St. Louis.

Since 1884 the Corner George Inn has been welcoming visitors to sleep and eat in the charming old (1852) German town of Maeystown Illinois. Intrepid owners David and Marcia Braswell have operated the Corner George as a Bed and Breakfast since 1989. The Business has grown several ways by expanding into three additional historic buildings, treating visitors to an old-fashioned General Store, an Antique Store, Sweet Shoppe (ice cream, anyone?) and Kaffeehaus. The local Tavern serves alcohol and offers casual meals. All this about 35 miles South of St. Louis! We were thrilled with our 'Loft Room' with its expansive stone walls, old clawfoot tub, large closets, full kitchen and dining area. Wake up early and walk the streets of Maeystown. Trace the paths of original stone gutters up the hill to the striking St. John UCC Church where you breath the clean air and take in the view. Afterwards join the Braswells in the second Floor Ballroom of the Corner George Inn for a delicious home-crafted breakfast and stimulating conversation. We met people from all over the Mid-West at that table who had been looking for what we found...something wonderful, historic and different.

Beautiful little place in a quaint town. The owner showed us each of the rooms when we arrived. They were each nicer than the next. The furniture and decorations are all beautiful. The owners are a very nice husband and wife who know the area well. We stayed two nights and had a delicious breakfast each morning complete with main dish, fruit, muffin, and pastry. The prices are fair and the rooms are much nicer than they look on the website.

This B&B/merchantile is like walking back in time but with modern conveniences. The building has been totally rehabbed by the owners with love and attention to detail. The bedrooms are beautiful with private bathrooms. Each room has its own unique look. One bedroom room is in the old summer kitchen behind the B&B. Imagine sleeping where locals once baked bread and smoked meat. We were able to wander about this building and the building across the street also owned by these owners. The workmanship is outstanding. The merchantile is filled with treasures. There are items which I remember from my childhood like a wax angel from Christmases past but there are also new items like a solar collector top for a canning jar. I loved that! There is something affordable for everyone from the Dachshund lover to the the quirky jewelry person. This is a fun place to visit even if one does not have the time to spend the night.

Lost on a maze of farm roads and marooned in a time long past, Maeystown itself is a most wonderful time capsule populated by people who treasure the towns rich history. The inn was selected as I was looking for unique lodging options to write about, and we needed a quiet break after an intense week of presentations, meetings and travel. Lovingly restored, the inn is an absolute gem, as close to time travel as is possible. Enhancing the entire stay were the proprietors, a delightful breakfast, and fascinating conversation. I had but one complaint and that was dining options. However, as it turned out, upon the proprietors recommendation we enjoyed a wonderful dinner in Waterloo, about nine miles east.
