The warm hospitality and accommodations were some of the best we have encountered over the years of visiting many bed and breakfast inns. The room was very clean and neat. Also, the breakfast was delicious.

This was the 5th occasion I have had to stay with Doug and Rose at Flagg Farmstead. As has always been the case, the accomodations, food, and company met and exceeded my expectations. Doug and Rose run a top notch B&B and I would not dream of staying elswhere when my work or vacation plans take me to the area.

Spent a long weekend seeing the sites in Springfield and every night we came back to the Lincoln Room at the Flagg Farmstead. The perfect ending to the day. I must say, our hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable and at home...tea and homemade cookies on arrival, making dinner reservations for us, give a little history... More

We stayed here one night and were pleased. The Sarah Flagg room was so pretty. Neat place to walk around and lots of history. The grounds surrounding the house are beautiful to explore. And of course, the breakfast was great. Very nice innkeepers as well.

While in Springfield, IL to tour the Lincoln historical sites, my wife and I just spent two wonderful nights at The Flagg Farmstead. From the moment that we arrived until the moment that we left, we were treated as members of the proprietors' family. The Farmstead itself was beautiful and the guest rooms were incredible. Breakfast each morning was outstanding... More

We stayed here two nights, June 18-19, as a wedding anniversary trip to Springfield's Lincoln Museum. The house is gorgeous and very well maintained and architecturally interesting, and the owners are delightful to engage in conversation about the history of the farm and early Springfield area history. The breakfasts were top notch and overall this was one of the best... More

WOW what a wonderful time. Are hosts were great. From treats on the table when we arrived back later in the evening, to checking with any problem that either one may have with what is being severed the next morning. Being a type 1diabetic this is so kind and thoughtful. The Flaff's even have sugar free syrup for the French... More

Originally we had hoped to stay closer to the historic Springfield activities; however this B&B is worth the short drive and we highly recommend it. Our room was spotless, the private bathroom recently remodeled, and the entire home tastefully decorated. Doug and Rosalie maintain a great balance of being available without hovering. They do have a small, friendly dog -... More

I traveled to Springfield, IL with my husband to visit the Abraham Lincoln Museum and Library. We needed a place to stay overnight and decided not to go with the typical hotel. We located this beautiful bed and breakfast which is located near Springfield and all the sights that we wanted to see. The B&B is spotless and very reasonable!... More

I have been to many bed and breakfast places and this one tops the list. It was quaint, filled with history, and owned by two of the best people we have ever met. Everything you want in a bed and breakfast is here. Breakfast was awesome! We are already planning to visit again soon. Mary W.
