My husband and I adore your home and how well you have kept it. Breakfast was outstanding and we enjoyed our conversation with you regarding your knowledge of the home and town. We hope to visit again! We highly recommend your inn to everyone passing through Illinois!

The building is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Rooms were nice and I enjoyed the private bath in the room. Breakfast was good. I will stay there again.

We stayed in the Lilac room and it was very nice. The whirlpool tub is large enough for two. The electric fireplace was nice. If you want a romantic getaway, then I would definitely go there. I loved social hour and breakfast was absolutely delicious. We will be trying to stay in another room soon.

This little town is full of beautiful old homes. It was a treat to stay in one. The woodwork, furnishings and hosts are warm and inviting.

We planned to visit our son and his family in Taylorville, and because it is a small town, thought we would have to stay in nearby Springfield or Decatur, approx. 30 min away. Our daughter-in-law told us of the Market Street Inn. We liked the pictures we saw online and decided to make a reservation. It didn't take long, after we arrived to know we were in for a treat! Joe and Myrna made us feel right at home and encouraged us to look around. Our room was beautiful....relaxing and peaceful. And the common areas were inviting and very comfortable. In fact, we invited our son and his family to see the Inn and spent the night visiting in the "parlor" (with Joe and Myrna's blessing). Myrna even provided home made cookies for our "guests". We were only there overnight, but we are already looking forward to another visit. Thank you, Joe and Myrna for being such wonderful hosts!

Eileen and I loved the Inn, and the town, and especially the bike-riding and stargazing that were so close to the Inn. We have finally found a place to get away from the craziness of big and small cities. We intend to make the Inn our home away from home.

Gorgeous Victorian home. Comfortable bed. Very friendly staff. Reminded me of hotels I've stayed in in England. When I return to Taylorville, I will stay here.

I was in town for business and had been advised I would need to drive to Springfield for lodging. A friend recommened the Market Street Inn. The breakfast was superb (fluffiest eggs ever) and Joe and Myrna are just great. I will definitely return to the Market Street Inn!!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We feel that the Market Street Inn, regardless of how we have tried over the last 20 years, is Taylorville's Best Kept Secret. Thank you for choosing to stay and we hope to see you again. Myrna is thrilled about the "Fluffiest Eggs Ever" compliment.
