Doug and Rosalie have hosted our summer family visit to Springfield for many years. Their hospitality in incomparable and is a wonderful complement to this special and historic place just north of Springfield. They maintain the Cornelius Flagg homestead and grounds in meticulous condition. Breakfasts are superb. A great summer getaway location.

We stayed early January after the busy holiday rush for a birthday getaway. The hosts were very cordial and made us feel welcome and relaxed, and gave us the full treatment even though we were the only guests that night. They served an excellent breakfast and even took the extra step to put a birthday candle on my wife's breakfast.... More

For us, this is the epitome of a gracious B&B in an elegant, lovingly restored historic mansion. Away from the touristy stuff and only 15 minutes from the Lincoln attractions Flagg Farmstead is situated on beautifully landscaped grounds. It's quiet, too. Rooms are decorated with antiques. Bathrooms are modern and well-appointed. Unobstrusive AC. Doug and Rosalie are delightful, attentive proprietors... More

Doug and Rosalie were perfect hosts. Although we only stayed for one night, Doug greeted us warmly and told us the history of the house while Rosalie organised dinner for us (at Chesapeake Seafood House, Springfield) and gave us directions for getting there. The historic home and its location are beautiful and very convenient for a visit to Springfield. The... More

My husband and I stayed here July 4th weekend. This was our first time staying at a B&B. We had a wonderful experience. Doug and Rosalee were great hosts. They were welcoming and helpful. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated. The house is very quiet. We did not hear our neighbors coming or going. The breakfasts were homemade and... More

My husband and I often stay at b&bs, and we were very happy with this choice. It is a lovely, historic home, well furnished, extremely clean, and with very congenial hosts. Breakfast was very good, and the area is just beautiful. We stayed in the Cornelius Flagg room, which was spacious, and it had a good mattress and well planned... More

This cozy and peaceful B&B made our trip very pleasant. The proprietors, Doug and Rosalee, are welcoming and helpful, and they got us tickets to the Lincoln Museum (included in price of B&B). The B&B is about 15 minutes from the Museum, even though you are out in the country. Also the breakfast is very good and they were kind... More

We stayed here on our first night out of Chigaco on our Route 66 holiday. The house is truly beautiful, painstakingly restored and sympathetically furnished and Doug took us on a tour whilst explaining the farmstead's history. All the bedrooms are lovely, we were upgraded to the Sarah Flagg room because it was closer to the air conditioning system than... More

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
