My husband and I are history buffs and planned a long weekend of exploring history in Springfield, IL. We were fortunate to find the Flagg Farmstead Bed and Breakfast for our accommodations. What a treat!! The owners were most welcoming and gracious. They were delighted to share the history of the home with us, including a scrapbook of photos and... More

I visited the b&b with my mom. It was our first time at a b&b. She had an amazing time. I could barely drag her out of there. The house is beautiful and the owners are very hospitable. We will definitely be back.

If you ever travel to Springfield-for whatever reason: to visit the many historic sites, on business, or just passing-thru-you must stay at the Flagg Farmstead B & B! Over 100 years old, the house is in marvellous condtion: a real piece of Civil War Era Americana. Our hosts were most gracious and informative, giving a quick history lesson of the... More

The Flagg Farmstead is an amazing place. Close to Route 66. A well preserved comfortable building run by a great couple. I only wish I had more time to learn of its history. Close to anything a traveller would want. We are looking for an excuse to go back.

Spent the weekend here with friends. Halfway point for the four of us to meet. Great b&b. Gracious folks, good breakfasts. Cute pup Izzy! We plan on making this an annual rendezvous!! Proximity to Springfield a plus. We would recommend the b&b to any of our friends/family.

This was an excellent choice for us as a b+b. We have stayed in many and the hospitality was outstanding. A delicious breakfast, comfortable bed, the best sheets, immaculate housekeeping, fascinating historical home all helped make this a perfect place to visit. The one thing that I did notice was that there was no window shade to block out the... More

My wife Susan and I spent two nights at the Flagg Farmstead near Sherman, Illinois recently when we drove to Springfield to visit the Lincoln sites in that city. Staying at this country bed & breakfast was one of the chief highlights of our visit, as it is well-restored brick Italianate farmhouse owned and operated by Doug and Rosalie Polite.... More

the Flagg Farmstead Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful experience. Rosalie and Doug Polite were great hosts, the house was beautifully appointed, full of light and the comfortable feeling of a period home. Such a welcoming place!!

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
