Market Street Inn is a lovely respite for rest and relaxation in a beautifully restored Victorian house. Each room is tastefully decorated, amenities are wonderful and the Inn Keeper friendly and helpful. We were served a delicious breakfast and then spent the morning by the fireplace reading as the weather was bad. Market Street Inn is great value and lots of fun.
Thank you for sharing your impressions of our property. We feel we have worked hard over the years to create and maintain a high level of quality and beauty in our Inn and by maintaining high standards for food quality and cleanliness. We hope you choose to visit us again.

Overall Joe & Myrna made the trip what it was. They kept the home gorgeously kept, with great accommodations, and wine to go with any request. The food was delicious, and the conversations had were better than most you will have with your family.

We stayed at Market Street Inn over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were in town to visit family and really just wanted a nice clean place to stay. We knew it would be good, but we were really impressed and everything exceeded our expectations. The hospitality was outstanding and the antique decor in the main house was wonderful!!!!!

My husband and I had never been to a Bed and Breakfast before and wanted to find a place to get away and reconnect. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. Myrna and Joe (whom I called Alan Alda due to the uncanny resemblance) were the epitome of hospitality and sparkling conversation, both of which are often neglected in this fast-paced world. The room was perfection, the breakfast superb, and the obvious care of the hosts for the comfort of their guests was outstanding. This is THE B&B to visit if you are looking for a romantic getaway, relaxing weekend, or want to reconnect with what makes the midwest so special: our wonderful people. Thanks, Joe and Myrna, for the amazing memories! Lindsey and Aaron

We met friends from Tennessee half-way between their house and our Iowa residence. The center point was Taylorville, Illinois. We'd never heard of Market Street Inn previously but were happy to discover it. We may visit there again.
