Joe and Myrna are wonderful hosts. They spoiled us in every way-kindness, stories, breakfast and WINE! This is a must when near Taylorville, IL!

The Market Street Inn is a restful and charming oasis in Central Illinois. The house itself is a gem; its elegant architectural detail, both exterior and interior, has a fascinating history, well told in a notebook compiled by the hosts--it was built from a kit sold by Sears & Roebuck in the 1890's! The owners' long connection to the local area plus their friendly personalities, enable them to provide any helpful guidance the visitor may request--and the breakfast menu is artfully and deliciously presented, with fresh-cut flowers from their garden adorning the breakfast table.
We always enjoy a guest taking the time to say kind and complimentary things about our fine inn and their stay. We take this as a sure sign that you enjoyed your time here and hope you will return sometime. Thank you, Joe

We return year after year to the Market Street Inn as our go-to place for family gatherings. This wonderfully decorated historical home is comfortable, yet elegant and the wrap around porch is perfect for reminiscing day or night! Myrna and Joe are wonderful hosts, very personal, attentive and always serve the most delicious breakfasts. It is such a cozy atmosphere - you could not ask for more. Will definitely keep coming back!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We hope to continue serving you and your family well into the future. All the best to you. Joe & Myrna

Chickie and I have stayed at the MSI several times and always come away feeling that Joe and Myrna have treated us like family. What a comfortable place to spend a few days back in Taylorville; great accommodations, fantastic breakfasts and, oh boy, that porch! We just wish we could join the crowd some day when the wine tasting fun gets under way……….//Skip//

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

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!

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

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.

Myrna and Joe have created such a beautiful home for all of us to cherish and enjoy. Remarkable restoration combined with all of the modern amenties!!! Myrna prepares a delicious, eye-catching, multi-course breakfast lovingly served. We were blessed to share breakfast with some wonderful conversationalists. Cherished every moment with all of them. Near downtown Taylorville, beautiful gardens, lovely wrapped porch. Myrna says they have Christmas Walks every other year. I cannot imagine her home becoming anymore beautiful than it is already. Refreshing, delightful. Yes, I have to try her receipt myself. D and D. S.
