We stayed in the Lincoln room for 1 night. The room was perfect, the bed very comfortable, hosts very friendly and not intrusive at all. There is a reason why this place has only great reviews! The house is very clean and well maintained, the grounds are well taken care of. Doug and his wife are fantastic hosts. Their recommendations... More

We stayed a night in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. We visited the Lincoln Museum with tickets provided by the owners. The rooms were very well decorated and inviting. The bathroom in the Lincoln Room had been recently updated. We sat out on the wonderful big front porch and had our wine. Rose cooked us a wonderful breakfast served with... More

My wife and I just spent three nights at the Flagg Farmstead. We joined 2 other couples that we meet up with every year. It was our first B&B experience and what a fabulous first date! Rosalie and Doug are the most wonderful owners, making us feel at home and cared for! We were treated to the Lincoln Presidential Museum... More

Just spend two nights at this bed and breakfast. Can not say enough good things. We have stayed in many b&b's both in the US and Europe and this one rates in our top 5. Rooms were light filled and comfortable. Breakfast was a delight. The hosts, Doug and Rosalie, were informative and made us feel very welcome. This house... More

We made a one night stop to see the Lincoln museum, and booked a room here. The home itself and the grounds are lovely and quiet. The hosts were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The Sarah Flagg room was large and comfortable with an updated bathroom and big windows. Be aware, there is no TV if that matters to... More

We chose this B&B after reading the many positive reviews here on tripadvisor. We stayed three nights and were able to fully enjoy walks on the well-kept grounds, delicious breakfasts, our guest room, tourist and restaurant recommendations, and a quiet morning of reading and reflecting on the beautiful porch swing. Doug and Rose are wonderful hosts. They were able to... More

My husband and I spent the past weekend here. It is absolutely beautiful. Our room was light and airy and quiet. The hosts - Doug and Rosalie Polite - were very gracious and welcoming. The breakfasts were scrumptious. Enjoyed talking with them about the history of the B&B. Doug suggested a restaurant for dinner on Saturday and offered and made... More

There really is not much more to add to the reviews already written. We stayed for just one night but honestly could have stayed a week. These are seriously nice people with the sort of welcome you dream of after a long drive up route 66. The house is beautifully decorated, immaculate and the ambience just perfect. Thank you so...

We stayed at Flagg Farmstead the last weekend in April while in Sherman to celebrate a beautiful lady's 90th birthday. The B & B is beautiful, but what makes this such a wonderful place to stay is the B & B's owners, Doug and Rosalie Polite. Rosalie not only prepared delicious breakfasts, but both her and Doug went above and... More

On April 26, we arrived at the Flag home to start our weekend. Rose and Doug are the most personable, organized and friendliest people. They catered to our every request. We had a huge birthday party on the front lawn, delicious breakfasts in the mornings, lots of great coffee and rooms we didn't want to leave. I would recommend this... More
