The hosts were friendly, but we clearly do not share my political beliefs, lol, which was clear from our morning conversations over breakfast. The downstairs was very nice, as was our room. My two criticisms were that the bed creaked pretty loudly whenever we moved on it, and breakfast was kind of luke warm our second morning, but I enjoyed... More

This is the fourth B&B I have stayed at. What a beautiful home with lots of character. When you walk in the doors you can't help but wonder who has stayed there before and the history of the home. It is nicely decorated and the dinning room is beautiful from the lead glass windows to the builtin cupboards. The inn... More

Roger and Dave were so nice and helpful in picking us up at Amtrak and then also taking us to Hertz to pick up a rental car. The breakfasts we were served were delicious and the accommodations were good. Thanks Roger and Dave!

Only bad thing i have to say is the bed, it was extremely uncomfortable i ended up sleeping on the couch both... More

First, Roger and Dave are very welcoming hosts and the historic house is a gorgeous structure with a beautiful front porch. They are eager to share their stories and opinions, which made for some very lively moments of conversation. The house is filled with curiosities and artifacts (I couldn't imagine trying to keep it dusted! What a job!) You can... More

All items leading up to this stay made me very un-easy. There was no official reservation confirmation. Just a one sentence e-mail response, to my e-mail requesting some reservation confirmation. Phone conversations were brief and hurried. With that said, once we arrived the owner was very accommodating and cordial. The room was nice and the breakfast good, with an excellent... More

My 2 daughters and I plus my 9 mo. old granddaughter stayed here and had a wonderful time. Roger was very congenial and funny. We all enjoyed talking with him as well as the other guests. We booked the connecting rooms and were pleased with them. The house is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. The garden is a work in progress... More

Had a great visit to the B&B. 1871 with wonderful decor and period design. Each bedroom can house two people. Innkeeper Roger is very hospitable and makes a great breakfast. Sat on the veranda and enjoyed the peace and tranquility. Say yes to staying here. I will be back.

I have known the proprietors of Rippon-Kinsella since they owned the Henry Mischler House and have come back several times to stay with them. That should tell you a lot right there! Of all the B&B's I have ever stayed at, Roger and David put the most effort into making everyone feel welcome. Roger cooks a terrific breakfast; not too... More

Our stay at the Rippon Kinsella B&B was the icing on the cake for a wonderful weekend getaway in Springfield IL. The B&B itself was beautifully decorated and cared for by its owner the historical mementos as well as the personal touch in décor added a sense of home to the atmosphere that is often lost in more commercial establishments....
