We spent one night at the Flagg Farmstead on our trip to see the Lincoln sites and I wish we would have booked a longer stay! Rose and Doug are amazing hosts! The home is beautiful, the rooms are so clean and the beds so comfy, and the breakfast was so delicious. They recommended some great restaurants, told us the... More

My wife and I booked an overnight stay at the Flagg Farmstead B&B as part of our trip itinerary of going to the 2016 IL State Fair. I had conversations with the owner, Doug, because we were going to arrive late. Doug did his best to accommodate our itinerary and made sure everything would be taken care of for our... More

We were warmly welcomed, our room was beautiful, Rose and Doug recommended a great restaurant in town, and the dog was perfect! I had to talk my wife out of dog-napping! The inclusion of Lincoln museum tickets was a terrific bonus. Oh, yes, the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We will certainly come back.

We spent 2 nights at the Flagg Farmstead. Doug and Rosalie were gracious hosts. Doug shared the history of the Flagg Farmstead and we found it very interesting. Rosalie shared stories as well and made wonderful breakfasts. They are very personable and we enjoyed spending time with them as they told us some good spots for dinner--we were not disappointed....

From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. The owners are so welcoming and make you feel like a friend rather than a 'customer'. We had booked a family room but Doug was considerate enough to put our son in another room of his own, at no extra cost. The house is beautiful and its history will blow... More

The whole atmosphere of Flagg Farmstead is absolutely beautiful. It exceeded our expectations. Our room was so comfortable and beautifully decorated with antiques. They have done a wonderful job of retaining the historic home. The food was delicious, and the hosts (Doug and Rosemary Polite) could not have been more gracious and friendly.

My partner and I stayed at Flagg Farmstead Bed & Breakfast recently on a weekend visit to Springfield. We were excited to see the sites (the capital, Lincoln Library, etc.) and did not know much about Springfield. We had a lovely stay at Flagg Farmstead Bed & Breakfast. Doug and Rose were gracious hosts and run a beautiful B &... More

My daughter and I were traveling cross country, and wanted a nice B & B instead of a motel along the highway (as we'd done before). We were pleased to finally arrive in Sherman, IL on a pretty Middle Western summer evening, and to find it was such a charming old place. The owner/hosts were very welcoming and helpful, suggesting... More

This is EASILY the best B&B we have ever tried. The house and grounds are so charming. The experience there was like stepping back in time. Doug and Rosalie create the most pleasant, relaxing environment while you are traveling and serve the most delicious, homemade breakfast. We plan on seeking this gem out again for another unforgettable experience.

From the moment we pulled into the driveway we knew this was going to be a perfect experience - and it truly was! Proprietor Doug was at our car immediately to help with luggage, show us around the grounds and explain the history of the lovely home. The Sarah Flagg room, where I stayed, was beautiful, comfortable bed, lovely linens... More
