Reasonably close to Springfield, this property is in the rolling countryside. A beautiful and large building, rooms were well-appointed, as well as generous common spaces. The hospitality and breakfast were certainly in the upper tier of similar properties. We were only there one night-wish I could have explored the grounds/immediate area more. This place is highly recommended as a veteran bed and breakfast traveler.
Another fabulous quilt retreat at Blackberry Creek. Mark and Dixie are the ultimate hosts, go beyond and above to make sure everything is ok with you. Mark makes the most amazing breakfasts each morning. He has the room set up to your liking. The beds are wonderful and it is so peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this for a retreat or just a place for r and r. Once there you will return.
We have used Blackberry Retreat for a women’s gathering for the past 3 years. The venue locations, venue itself, rooms and food are all amazing. Mark & Dixie are the kindest most hospitable hosts and our visits here never disappoint. The food served is beyond belief in taste and presentation. This is one of Springfield’s best gems and I highly recommend it to all.
I can’t brag on this place enough! As a group of quilters who meet here annually for a week of fun, laughing and yes a little sewing! Inn keepers are magnificent and spoil us rotten! If you pass this place by, you’ll be sorry! We love you Mark and Dixie!
This was our second occasion to stay with Mark and Dixie at the Blackberry Creek Retreat. Our first was seven years ago and from that time on we have been looking for another opportunity to enjoy their hospitality. Every detail of our stay was cared about from the pre-stay menu choices to Mark meeting us at the door to help carry in our luggage. This B&B should be on everyone's list. Come as a guest and leave as friends.
