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.

Set in a beautifully maintained large garden this historic 19th century house overlooks miles of prairie. The bedrooms and the rest of the house are very comfortable and furnished in keeping with its history. The hosts could not have done more to make us feel welcome and booked restaurants for us and a visit to the Presidential Museum which they... More

From the moment we pulled up - Doug met us in the driveway and began by telling us the farmstead's history - until our last delicious breakfast before heading home, the Flagg Farmstead exceeded our expectations. The home is immaculate, the bedrooms are charming - we stayed in the Cornelius Flagg room, but the other rooms were lovely as well.... More

This is one of the nicest B&Bs we have stayed at in the US or Europe. The pace was immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and Doug and Rosalie are excellent hosts. They had all the tips for great places to eat, and the local attractions. The Flagg Farmstead is only 15 minutes or less from the Lincoln Sites... More

We stayed here on a Sunday evening while on a Memorial Day weekend road trip. It was our first time at a B&B and the experience at Flagg Farmstead was so pleasant and memorable, I'm hoping the bar has not been set too high for more B&B visits. The historic, antique-filled home was spacious and immaculate, as was our room... More

I can't say enough about our stay at Flagg Farmstead. We spent three nights over Mothers Day weekend - Doug and Rosalie are perfect hosts. We felt so at home. The house is beautiful, historic and well loved and cared for. And breakfasts were delicious! I highly recommend staying here while visiting Springfield or just for a quiet get away.

Very personable owners. The B&B was immaculate with decorating that was very tasteful. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely return again and highly recommend The Flagg Farmstead. We had a relaxing evening talking with the owner while swinging on the porch swing. He shared his vast knowledge of the history of the area which made it even more special.

Three siblings and our spouses stayed 3 nights in Sherman, Illinois because we were attending the 150th Lincoln funeral memorial celebrations in nearby Springfield. We were so glad we chose the Flagg Farm B & B. The rooms were all beautifully decorated with books and period wallhangings. Doug & Rosa Lea made us feel so at home in their gorgeous... More
