We were very grateful for the comfortable and beautiful place to stay while in Springfield and for the kind hospitality we received while staying there. The breakfasts and cookies were very delicious. Thank you Doug and Rosalie.

Four couples spent the weekend (Thursday - Sunday) at the Flagg Farmstead. Although the weather was cold, windy, raining, we all had a wonderful time. Doug and Rosie were superb hosts; the breakfasts were quite tasty and elegantly served! We spent an evening in the living room playing piano duets and singing. The piano wasn't the greatest, but we all... More

We wanted to visit Springfield since we have lived in IL for years and never seen the capital or any of the historical Lincoln sites. We knew we wanted to stay somewhere outside of the busy city area. What a great decision we made when we picked the Flagg Farmstead which is just a few minutes outside of Springfield. This... More

We chose the Flagg Farmstead B&B for the night before our daughter's wedding - for a private night in the country with our family and all the bridesmaids. What a historic treasure! The rooms were all beautifully decorated and comfortable, and the hosts made us all feel at home and warmly welcomed. The house and grounds provided some beautiful backdrops... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Flagg Bed and Breakfast and our visit was enchanting. The house is a beautifully maintained treasure located in one of the most historic areas of the country. This vacation was to be our “Abraham Lincoln Immersion Tour,” and it far exceeded our expectations. During our visit, our charming hosts, Rosalie and... More

The room was spacious, bed comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. You cannot beat the taste of "home-cooking"! Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable for the two days we visited...

The grounds are impeccable, the home is so enchanting outside and inside, the owners are adorable and incredibly hospitable, and the food is magnificent! What a perfect stay. Everything is clean, fresh, and welcoming, even down to the special make-up removing washcloth. They haven't forgotten a thing. The owners graciously welcomed us and immediately made us feel at home. They... More

We stayed at Flagg Hill B&B for two nights. We were close to the Lincoln historical areas. It's not at all far, and the drive is pleasant and easy. Our hosts were amazingly cordial, knowledgeable and gracious. And the breakfasts are delicious. The grounds are lovely, and fun to explore around. It's rather quiet there, sort of in the country....

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
