Other Things to Note
When booking through airbnb, many of the properties are neither licensed nor inspected. Rest assured that we are fully legal to do business and up to date on building codes and safety features. Our building is fully sprinklered and emergency lighting and exit signs are strategically placed.
CHILDREN: Due to the historic nature and proximity of other guest rooms, we do not host children under 12 years of age! Our inn is meant to be a respite from the daily pressures of everyday life!
SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED INSIDE, due to the historic nature of the building. Smoking IS allowed OUTSIDE. There will be a $100 FINE imposed upon guests that choose to break this rule, no questions asked.
CANDLES ARE NOT ALLOWED inside the B&B. They pose a fire hazard and spilled wax is extremely difficult to clean up! Charge for damage from candles will be $50-$100, depending on severity!
No Pets allowed.
This was the cutest B&B ever! We stayed here for the Louisville half marathon weekend, and was pleasantly surprised how close we were to Louisville but still had the tranquility of a small town. The host and her husband were the nicest people. They even made me breakfast when we got back after the race because he thought I should eat:) We stayed at in the Rose Room, which was adorable but the closest door to the foyer and heard everyone coming in and out. It was a gorgeous room but poor placement. I would recommend staying on the second or third floors. Overall I can't say enough great things, good food, great hosts and beautiful century mansion! Great find.
The Market Street Inn was wonderful. Carol was very inviting and welcoming. I instantly felt right at home. The rooms were very clean and the amenities were great. I would stay there time and time again to visit Louisville!
We really enjoyed our overnight stay at the Market Street Inn! Jeffersonville is conveniently located across the river from Lousiville and has a ton of charm itself. Our hosts were accommodating, nice, and informative. The house has an incredible history and our breakfast was great. We will definitely stay here again!
They made me feel welcomed by explaining things about the home and what was around . They have a lot of local places around one 1mile away off of Spring Street- a lot of local places too. One block away from the walking bridge that connects IN to Louisville. Our breakfast was amazing!
We loved our time at Market Street Inn. The location and accommodations were exactly as we anticipated. We actually were surprised at how lovely the suite was as the photos do not do it justice! The food was so lovely and service and friendly hospitality of the hosts were so welcome.
Lovely Bed and Breakfast that made for a comfortable stay while were in town for Forecastle Music Festival. I would highly recommend staying here when visiting Louisville...while it is located in Indiana, Market Street Inn is just a short walk across the walking bridge that spills into Riverfront Park. The staff were friendly, courteous, and went out of their way to assure we had a pleasant stay. We will surely be back soon!
