Wonderful hosts. Perfect location. Charming accommodations. Delicious breakfast. It's right on the edge of downtown, so you can walk everywhere, yet retreat for a peaceful night's rest. Wooster is a happening place and the Market Street Inn is the perfect place to stay.

Anniversary getaway

4.6 on September 12, 2013

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days celebrating our anniversary in April. We were actually only going to spend one night but we loved the place so much we ended up staying two. The hosts, Allan and Jayne, were extremely warm and friendly. The house, with all its Victorian charm, was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. We loved our room with the little balcony where we sat and enjoyed a glass of wine. The breakfasts were outstanding - Jayne makes the best scones around. I would highly recommend this B&B and we plan to return.
