Pasfield House Inn
Ranked #2 of 4 Springfield B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Our first time ever staying in a Bed and Breakfast. The home feeling along with a very pleasant staff created an atmosphere that made us feel like family. I like the fact that breakfast was prepared for us so that we could eat at our convenience. I would recommend the suite with the sitting room. Plenty of space to just relax and also provides two levels of privacy if needed. This will be the place I stay when I return to Springfield. No more hotels for us in this area. Now hooked on this place.

Room Tip: 3rd level suite with sitting room.

Nothing's overlooked in this best B&B we've ever experienced, from essentials of cleanliness and location to the smallest details. We'd planned on one night and extended to three. Best-quality furnishings from jaccusi to ceiling fans, excellent breakfast ... Delivered right to your room. Staff attentive but not imposing. And if you're here for Abe Lincoln sites you MUST stay here. In sum: like the Ritz Carlton at half the cost.

Just got back from two days in Springfield. Found the Pasfield House Inn on the internet. Absolutely wonderful experience! A very welcoming reception when we arrived. Staff knowledgeable of area and very helpful with answering questions. The tour of the inn and it's history was great. Rooms are very comfortable, decorated nicely, updated, wonderful whirlpool tub. Breakfast was very tasty. We didn't know Springfield well so ended up driving to sites but one could walk to many of the sites from this location. Proprietor, Tony, was a wealth of information about the history of Springfield. If you like history, plan to spend some time at the inn taking in the story of this home. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. The location is great - easy walking distance to the Lincoln sites and the Dana Thomas House. Many good restaurants are also close. The Inn itself is very comfortable, with clean rooms, good WiFi, a jacuzzi in every room, and hundreds of DVDs to watch. We enjoyed having breakfast to eat when we wanted it. Tony was very helpful and knowledgeable about restaurants and attractions. We would definitely come here again because there is a lot to explore in downtown Springfield.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Pasfield House. It's a charming, character rich, and nicely-kept historic inn that is well located in downtown Springfield. We easily walked to all of the major attractions.

We had the third floor suite, we later learned that the third floor had been the ballroom of the home and has been converted into two very nice living suites. There was a living room, dinette area, large bedroom and nice bathroom. It very much had a feeling that it was separated from the rest of the house. One evening, there was a large dinner engagement on the first floor and you couldn't hear a thing on the third.

One thing I was pleasantly surprised by was that there was excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water on the third floor. I've had different experiences on the upper floors of other old restored homes.

But, the absolute best part of our stay we're the interesting stories, local tips and jolly innkeeper hospitality of the owner Tony Leone and his lovely wife. Their personalities, attention to detail and local flair is what is, for me anyway, the big difference between a warm and interesting inn, and a sterile hotel experience. Tony is a great raconteur, full of fascinating local stories and inside information. Be sure to ask him for a look at the DVD that PBS did about the home.


I highly recommend Pasfield House.

Enjoyed our visit to Springfield very much and our stay at the Pasfield House in particular. Historical house has been beautifully restored and there is much to like there. Very conveniently located near all the major attractions, shops, and restaurants.

Room Tip: Choose a room with lots of space.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Pasfield House Inn! The historical home was beautifully restored and we enjoyed learning the history of it. Very conveniently located near downtown Springfield, and we were close to all of the Lincoln places we wanted to visit, and many other shops and restaurants.

We LOVED the room itself! We had a separate sitting room, kitchenette, bedroom & private bath. It was Frank Lloyd Wright inspired decor, which we love. Minimal, but nice and tasteful. Cool attic space with slanted ceilings and a lot of interest in the structure.

I will say that you need to be fairly laid back if you are going to stay here, as it is not what I consider to be a traditional B&B, or even a country inn, for that matter. It is unconventional, but that doesn't mean that it's bad - just know that it is not typical. Here are some reasons that I say that:
~ There is not an online reservation system in the traditional sense. You send them the dates you want to be there, and then get a personal email to tell you if there is room for you or not. I think they decide on what room you will be in when you get there. You to go online and choose your breakfast items and drinks that you want put in your fridge.
~ There is not a group breakfast. You order what you want online and it is brought to your room the day before. You heat up a homemade egg strata (if that's what you ordered) in your own kitchenette, or have cereal, fruit, bagels, yogurt, etc. It's good food, but not over the top, and very little variety if you are there for a few days.
~ There is not a staff person on the premises at all times - they come and go during the day and are not there at night. Many times we were the only people in the house. So if you need an extra towel or blanket, you many not get it right when you want it. You have a key to the building though, come and go as you please, and you pay upfront as soon as you get there.

We had a few issues with some things that didn't work well (the jacuzzi & one of the AC's), but our overall weekend in Springfield was so enjoyable, that it wasn't a big deal. Tony graciously shared some free tickets with us for an event, and we enjoyed a little private tour of the property. It's a mix of personal moments with the staff, but not being overwhelmed with people, learning their system of doing things, and a little lack of organization at times.

However, as I said at the beginning of this review, if you are laid back and don't compare this with your typical B&Bs, it's a very nice place to stay! The price is very reasonable as well.
