Are you looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your adult children and/or your adult grandchildren? Buy them the gift that pays for itself and never quits giving. Make the down payment on the purchase of our fine inn and put them into a profitable business which will pay for itself and keep them from being unemployed. Form a partnership w/ family or friends. Many people will spend much more on their loved ones for Christmas and give them something which provides little or no return and is soon worn out and unused. The gift of a successful inn will provide many happy times over the years and your loved ones will be ever grateful. Down payment idea: convert your IRA to a self-directed IRA. Form a partnership w/ family or friends. Come pay us a visit and ask Myrna to tell you all about our inn, its success over the past 18 years, the ROI, the wonderful guests we meet and host from all over the world, 38 countries to be exact and how the guests continue to return time after time. Rent the remaining rooms for Christmas week, have your Christmas around our tree and make the presentation a surprise to the recipient(s). Or possibly an early Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend.
We have two optional properties which could provide homes for two or more families who could share the duties of operating a profitable inn as well as the innkeeper quarters in the main house. One of these is the Carriage House which is shown on our website (includes a 2 bedroom loft apartment upstairs, not shown on website) and the other is a Mission Style home across the street from the main inn.
Small towns are great because many folks know and trust and love one another and really have fun getting together and making a party for almost any reason.

Have you ever heard of Bagna Cauda? It is
Fall is a fun time here in the middle of the US and the very middle of Illinois. The leaves turn yellow, gold and red, there is the smell of smoke from the fireplace in the air and that wonderful aromatic soup called “chilli” sounds like a bone and body warmer this time of year. Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14 are the dates for the 27th annual Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce “Chillifest” which is held on the Historic Taylorville Square. Compete as a chili or salsa cook, dine on Award Winning Chilli, participate in the events and enjoy the music on the stages. Two days of homey fun and frolic. Visit the Chillifest webpage http://www.chillifest.info/content/?id=2012 and see all of the official activities and then go to http://www.marketstreetinn.com/events.html and check out what else is happening this weekend too. If you are staying with us this is also the 2nd Saturday of the month and that means that at 2 PM the Market Street Inn Bed and Breakfast BYO Taste and Share Wine Event happens. Most folks also bring a snack to share with the others who attend. If you are staying at the inn we supply your wine. Of course, consumers of other beverages also attend and enjoy.
Flash, one of the founders of this event just won the International Chili Society 1st prize for Green Chili or Chili Verde.

Many years ago it was a tradition to Parade in one’s Easter finery along the Avenue and meet and greet and see and be seen by one and all. Several inspired young ladies of fashion in Taylorville are recreating this tradition on Saturday, April 23 at 1:30 PM around the National Historic Registry Taylorville Square.
Note!!! This is not only for ladies of fashion but gentlemen as well. Ladies, wear your Easter Bonnet and your finery and gentleman, wear your chapeau and fine suitings as well. Don’t have a chapeau or a bonnet? Go online and Google Easter Bonnet and Easter Parade and create your own. What we want is participation.
The Taylorville Square is on the National Registry of Historic Places and has buildings dating back to the late 1800″s. What a great place to meet and greet friends, both old and new.
Here are a couple of young ladies who have been hunting Easter Eggs in their beautiful attire. Did I mention Easter Egg Hunt? Yes, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt on the green of the Courthouse Square sponsored by the Taylorville Kiwanis Club. Eggs will contain various stuffings for the pleasure of the lucky who find them. You might even expect a visit from the Easter Bunny.
Beginning at 1:30 PM is the Easter Promenade and remember, “This is not all about the girls!” Men, come out and show your manhood by dressing up and parading with a finely dressed lady. Or, perhaps, “Man’s Best Friend.”
Of course, well behaved dogs are welcome, especially when attired in the finest of fashion.
After the Promenade, beginning at 2:30PM, there will be a wine tasting in the Shumway Room at One East Market Restaurant and Jazz Lounge. Please come and enjoy. Make a dinner reservation, go home and change and come back in your dancing shoes to enjoy the sounds of The Big Shake Daddies. You will be glad you did.
Easter is the Celebration of the Rebirth of Christ and what a great to do this. Of course, folks from Miles Around and other well known cities are invited to join in and make this celebration the success it should be. Happy Easter from the Market Street Inn Bed and Breakfast.
The Williams Family, who traveled from all over the US and from Spain and Scotland to spend an early Christmas with each other at
our Central Illinois Inn. What fun to have 23 fun folks gathering in our commons areas to reacquaint with one another, tell stories of happenings since seeing each other last, telling the patriarch that he is going to be a grandfather once again and playing with and loving on the little children. Patriarch Williams will be 89 in January 2011 and is sharp and spry as is Matriarch Williams.
As innkeepers, we found it much fun to watch, listen and attempt to anticipate the wants and needs of the various members of all ages. At breakfast on Saturday, one of the sisters-in-law gave one of our innkeepers a test on the names of everyone at the table. He passed the test.
Every Saturday morning, the Clock Keeper of our Courthouse Clock will take anyone who is waiting about 8 AM at the South Door of the Christian County Courthouse up into the clocktower while he winds the 7 Day Clock which faces the 4 points of the compass. The Clock Keeper is also very intimate with the engineering and architecture of the Christian County Courthouse and the changes which have been made in the past couple of years. He tells folks about the restoration of the art glass dome, the false ceiling which was removed to expose it once again to view from below and the removal of the second floor center to provide a view from the first floor all the way up.
The Clock Keeper also tells folks about the restored Tern and Bittern fountain on the Southwest Lawn and the 4 year old, bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln and the “pig story” on the Northwest Lawn. The entire Williams Family enjoyed the small town hospitality which happens here in Taylorville in Central Illinois.
We hope you come back someday, Williams Family.
