ABOUT OUR HISTORIC INN:  established 1994, Market Street Inn Bed & Breakfast, 220 East Market Street, Taylorville IL 62568. This premiere Victorian property is a George Franklin Barber design number 143, built in 1892, with 7,100 square feet on 3 levels with 8 guest rooms:  5 on second floor and 3 on third floor, all with private bathrooms and most with fireplaces.  First floor has 2 parlors, large dining room and foyer—all with original woodwork, pocket doors, 3 fireplaces and 10.5 feet ceilings.  In 1993 this property was acquired by Joe & Myrna Hauser when they returned to their hometown to create a bed & breakfast.  Extensive restoration and renovation now offers  modern features—four zones of central heating & cooling, private bathrooms with jetted tubs & showers, fiber optic wi-fi and numerous other amenities.  Come “Sit a spell” on the restored wrap-around front porch to savor the experience of small town living—walk 2 blocks to the historic town square to shop and dine.    

CARRIAGE HOUSE:  220 South Pawnee Street was acquired in 2003 to add 2 more suites to the B&B.   Again extensive restoration and renovation made possible 2 more high-end suites for guests to experience and enjoy a stay in what was once for the horses and carriage.   

HUNT CLUB suite in carriage house (pictured above) is one of our most popular suites—available year-round, two night minimum, private entrance with keyless entry, over 500 sq ft.  Amenities include king bed, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower & double jetted tub, kitchenette, 2 fireplaces (and central heat), private patio, off-street parking and other welcoming features.  Fiber optic Wi-fi and smart TV.

HELEN’S SUITE is ADA approved and has 450 sq ft of space in 2 rooms plus over-sized ADA approved bathroom.   A full KITCHEN was added in the spring of 2023.   Private entrance with keyless lock, patio with grill and assigned off-street parking makes this unit ideal for long term occupancy, especially traveling medical workers, e.g. nurses coming to area hospitals.   Book direct for weekly/monthly stays — 217-827-3435
