  • About the Inn

    Corner George Inn Bed & Breakfast, plate of food

    Today the Inn consists of four buildings: the original inn, the summer kitchen and two rock houses. There are a total of six guest rooms, each with a private bath. In the original inn there are sitting rooms on both floors, a wine cellar, a "ping pong mezanine" and a 600-square-foot ballroom.

    The ballroom serves as a commons area for guests and as a dining area for breakfast. It also lends itself to larger group activities. The entire building is furnished with antiques and is fully air-conditioned. Out-buildings are still present on the grounds.

    David, Marcia, and their staff invite you to join them for breakfast in the ballroom and then for a walk through the quiet and serene village as you take a step back in time. Horse-drawn carriage rides in the country are available upon request. Please inquire about arrangements when making reservations.

    From I-255, you can find us by taking Illinois 3 (exit 6) to Columbia and continuing to Waterloo. Then, turn right at Illinois 156 and then left on Lakeview Drive 8 miles to Maeystown.

  • The Village of Maeystown

    Corner George Inn Bed & Breakfast, Maeystown bridge

    The 165 year old German settlement of Maeystown is just one of a handful of villages in the state of Illinois listed on the National Register of Historic Places in its entirety. Some 60 stone, wood and brick structures remain from the 1800's.

    Today the bed and breakfast, general store, sweet shop, restaurant, museum and visitors' center, numerous residences and the 1867 church have been restored. The one lane stone arched bridge leading into town stands as the centerpiece of the village.
