“Lincoln inspiration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This b and b, on the old coach road that Lincoln rode on, is relaxing and stimulating. Stimulating due to the historic nature of the building and nearby Springfield with so many places to learn of Lincoln. Relaxing because of the way one is treated. The hosts, Doug and Rosalie go out of their way to make one feel comfortable and well fed. I'd recommend it to anyone.

We liked the country setting. The host Doug and Rosalie go out of there way to make you feel at home. Breakfast was really good both days we stayed there.Conversations around the breakfast table with the other guest was a delight.Would stay there again when we go back to Springfield.

This is a perfect spot. The owners have thought of everything you might want or need. Each room is a Delight. We look forward to our stops here on our way to or from Wisconsin. The Breakfast is always one you want more of and to linger over another cup of coffee or tea. Great food. The other guests are very interesting to talk to and exchange visits to the Lincoln sights and museum. The area is quiet and beautiful. The B&B is very welcoming with its wrap around porch. We have stayed here 4 times just this year, and look forward to more visits. The interior of this historical home are perfection.
The gardens and yard are just beautiful.
A lot of love has gone into making this B&B a *Want to stop again* retreat.

This was our second visit to this lovely bed & breakfast. Doug and Rosalie ensure that their guests feel right at home and go to great lengths to make delicious breakfasts in their beautifully appointed dining room. Our first visit was last year the same weekend. We enjoyed it so much that we made plans last year to visit again this past weekend. We stayed in the Cornelius room which was just as exquisite as the other room.

Room Tip: Plan ahead, as their rooms fill up quickly on the weekends.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Flagg Farmstead at the end of September for
2 nights. It is a lovely historic home – beautiful, impeccably clean, elegantly decorated and very accommodating. The setting is lovely and quiet.
The owners, Doug & Rosalie are very gracious and friendly hosts...very knowledgeable of the home’s history/stories, which they love to share with the guests. Also they are very knowledgeable of the area/Springfield – historical sites, back roads to take, etc. Our room was very comfortable (stayed in the Lincoln room), charming and spotless. Each morning we had a delicious breakfast, which is served in a very lovely dining room. For early risers, morning coffee is available prior to breakfast service as well. Being only a 10-15 min drive to Springfield
makes it a great location! Tickets were included with our stay for the Lincoln Presidential Museum (A must to visit!). We truly enjoyed our stay at the Flagg Farmstead and highly recommend it – Enjoy! (AND thanks to Doug and Rosalie for making our stay so enjoyable!!)

We 'happened' upon this wonderful B & B via Trip Advisor as we were booking reservations on a recent trip to Missouri. It's a perfectly glorious historic site and Doug and Rosalie were warm and wonderful as they shared the history of the house/property. The room was clean and warmly decorated, the decor within the house was in the period of the architecture yet included their own family photos which gives the guests a feeling of being "a part of the family". Additionally, they provided complimentary tickets to the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, so they are marketers of the history that Springfield provides. We loved the breakfast and the relaxing conversation we shared with them. We hope to return!

Room Tip: One needs to be able to climb stairs.........although we didn't even think to ask if an elevator...

We usually stay at B & B's because we like the "homey" feel and talking to other guests. This historic property was beautiful. Loved sitting on the front porch and watching the sun set. The rooms were cozy and beautifully decorated. And the breakfast was super! The owners are gracious in sharing the history of the property and making recommendations. You can sit and read or enjoy the nearby Lincoln history attractions. This is worth the stay. Would certainly recommend especially if you love history and old houses.
