My Mother and I decided to take a weekend trip to Springfield and wanted more than the typical hotel experience. We hit the jackpot in choosing 'The Flagg Farmstead'. The House is s short distance from downtown Springfield, historically significant and beautifully restored and maintained. The real treat is the genuine warmth and hospitality of the hosts and owners, Rosalie... More

Wonderful Breakfast of Fresh Fruit with Bacon and the most delicious Cornmeal Blueberry Panckes you'll ever have. If only I'd eaten more! The rooms are lovely, beautifully appointed, true to the era, wonderful walnut antiques. Immaculate rooms with comfortable beds, quality linens and good lamps for reading. The hosts are most generous with their recomendations and will help make your... More

THis place is immaculate and the rooms are large and bright. The hosts are perfectly suited to the B&B business. They are gracious, friendly, and happy to tell you about their lovely home. They consider themselves "caretakers", not owners. It's about 15 minutes from Springfield and a welcome respite after spending the day touring the Lincoln sites. The porch is... More

and outstanding! I usually go kicking & screaming with my husband when he decides to take in another Presidential Historic Site, but staying here made the trip well worth it! Looking at the pictures again tonight made me long to be back on that front porch gazing at the gorgeous sunset, or relaxing in our gorgeous "New Salem" bedroom. The... More

We had our annual cousins' reunion there and couldn't have found a better place for it! I was in charge of hosting this year and from the moment I spoke to them on the phone, I knew it would be the right place. Rosalie and Doug were so wonderful...made us feel right at home, fixed delicious breakfasts, accomodated us in... More

i couldn't ask for a better stay at this charming, well-run, quaint B&B. The owners are absolutely wonderful, warm, knowledgeable about the history, and accommodating. Our room was perfect -- the linens crisp and clean, all the things you want from a stay away. i would go back in a heartbeat!

http://flaggfarmsteadbandb.com/ I have been to B&B where the reviews made the place sound amazing only to find an incredible disappoinment was waiting. It is quite possible that those people had just not been to enough to realize what a crappy place they had just stayed at. Much to the contrary the Flagg Farmstead was fantastic. The owners were engageing but... More

My husband, myself and our teenage granddaughter had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Flagg Farmstead. The host was so kind and gracious to us in spite of the fact we just "dropped in". We arrived late, but the host called a really nice restaurant and made reservations for us. Our rooms were so perfect! The breakfast the next morning... More

We've stayed in enough inns and hotels in the Springfield area to know that this will be our first choice in all future trips to the state capitol. It made our anniversary celebration even more memorable. The 140-year-old mansion has modern conveniences, yet retains every bit of its charm. Our room (named for Cornelius Flagg) was very comfortable and spotlessly... More

Genial hosts, excellent food and a great restored 1870s farmstead with lots of antiques. If we go back to the Springfield area, we will certainly stay there.
