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

We arrived late at night and the owners were still awake to greet us. They have a sweet little dog. The property is lovely, clean rooms, safe parking, hot shower. The walls were thick and rooms dark so we slept soundly. The owners had great recommendations of where to visit in Springfield. When you take into account the delicious homemade... More

We stayed here for a weekend in Springfield to see all of the Lincoln sites. Our hosts were very pleasant and helpful, but not too talkative as we've found at other B&Bs. The rooms were lovely-although our room was fairly dark-with antique furniture to match the historic house. It was very quiet - we never heard the hosts or other... More

My husband and I met up with 2 other couples for a weekend in Springfield. We were lucky enough to find this beautiful B&B which is run by a very gracious couple. The historical background of the B&B provided by Doug was appreciated as well as the delicious food prepared by Rosalie. We have stayed at various B&Bs over the... More

I've stayed on several B&Bs and found this one a great experience. The couple who own it love the property and are wonderful hosts. The bed is comfortable. There are nice touches throughout. Breakfast is delicious. Sherman is not far from Springfield downtown. It is very easy to get around. As I was here for work, I was little hesitant... More

The house is beautifully preserved and so elegant on the inside. The couple were friendly and happy to share info about the house's history, plus they have a cute little dog named Izzy! My sister and I shared the Sarah Flagg room, and it felt very much like I was having my own Downton abbey moment. Breakfast was yummy waffles... More
