Market Street Inn Holiday Stay…12/27-28/13

5 on January 04, 2014

Stayed at the Market Street Inn during the Christmas holiday period.It was our second stay and was just enjoyable as the first. The Inn was meticulously decorated in the holiday spirit. Christmas trees in all guest rooms, garlands, etc. We stayed in the Chimney Room which was large, comfy, and well appointed. The gas fireplace brought both warmth and cheer. Breakfasts, were as expected, a joy with Myrna providing the culinary creations and Joe serving the yummies. Myna and Joe are ideal innkeepers and it continued to be obvious that the Inn is their pride and joy and the result on much TLC and hard work. A truly wonderful stay as Myrna and Joe are masters of making one feel at home in the Inn. Ralph and Clareen

Always a pleasure to be here!

A Wonderful Place to Stay

Myrna and Joe Hauser are really terrific innkeepers, knowledgeable about the history of the house and the community. Market Street Inn is well-appointed and maintained. The rooms have many special features, and the breakfasts are excellent. A definite slice of small-town America!

Quaint fall getaway!

Myrna and Joe felt like friends we had forever after staying 3 nights with them. We had wonderful breakfasts, shared recipes and got great recommendations for day trips! All the small towns around Taylorville had wonderful shopping and the Inn is close to wineries and super restaurants. Myrna immediately gave us a wonderful room upgrade when we got there. It was comfortable, quiet and centrally located. We WILL stay there again while visiting a dear friend at Blackburn College. Super hospitality and camaraderie! Linda and Jesse Parzero

4.0 on October 08, 2013

We were here on the last night of a very long road trip. Everything was fine. The owners were nice,. By the time we stayed there we had gotten harder to impress, so I am not sure my review is really fair.
