Flagg Farmstead is one of the best B&B's that I've been too. The owners, Rose and Doug, have hospitality down pat. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfasts wonderful. Sitting on the front porch reminds me of my childhood farm. They graciously accommodate any special requests. Included in the room fee are tickets to The Lincoln Museum in Springfield. The... More

This is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed at. Came downstate for the state fair and my wife had found this place for a business trip. The family that runs it is nice as can be and their meals are delicous. Will only stay here for future trips to the Springfield area.

Our stay at Flagg Farmstead was perfect! The property was beautiful, it was close to the Illinois State Fair, we had a comfortable room with a full bath, and a delicious breakfast. We stayed in Sarah's room which was bright and cheery. We'll be back.

The Flagg Farmstead is the nicest bed and breakfast that we have stayed in the past four years we have been staying at bed and breakfasts. The home is exceptionally maintain for it's age, taste fully furnished, and very clean. Doug will spend a great deal of time explaining the history of the house & property, and the renovation. Mr....

This whole house was exceptionally clean. The host and hostess were very welcoming. Our room was quite stately. The breakfasts were delicious and served in sensible portions on an elegant dining room table. The Flagg Farmstead is located centrally among the Lincoln sites and the lesser known Edgar Lee Masters sites. We would stay at the Flagg Farmstead again.

We had the best time at this bed and breakfast. The hosts were fabulous. They really made us feel like part of the family. I suggest staying here when in the area. It was super clean and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back.

Perfect for families or a romantic get away. The accommodations were the best we've encountered. A beautiful historic home right on Lincoln's circuit, minutes from the fairground and very close to the Lincoln sites in Springfield. The breakfast was so good I'm hoping I can obtain the recipe (the egg casserole!). Plus, little Isabella was so sweet; she kept us... More

Our stay at the Flagg Farmstead was great. There are not enough superlatives to describe this delightful place and experience. The historic home is beautiful. One just wants to walk around it and admire the craftsmanship and reflect on its history. The setting is tranquil and peaceful. I enjoyed reading on the wrap around porch one early morning. The hospitality... More

A beautiful home, amazing host and a dog too! From the moment we drove in the driveway we were greeted by Doug, shown up to our room, given a tour of the house and some history on the house and family who owned it in the 1870's. Daily breakfast is delicious. Free tickets to the Lincoln history museum. Suggestions of... More

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.
