The second we pulled into the driveway we were greeted warmly by Doug who is one of the owners. He welcomed us right in and gave us some history on their beautiful home. We went to Springfield that night and despite our late return Doug still greeted us as he did when we first arrived. Our rooms were nice and...

A very relaxing place to stay when traveling Route 66. Easy to get to and in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful surroundings. The rooms are homey and very clean with a private bath. The breakfast was outstanding!! Would love to stay again!

From the moment we walked through the door upon arrival to the time of our departure, we were treated with warmth and congenial hospitality. We wanted for nothing. The food was delicious. The bed comfortable, and the surroundings were picturesque. We especially enjoyed hearing of the house's history and the hosts' ability to keep it in such outstanding condition.

As we drove in on the driveway, we were welcomed by Doug, the owner. Our room was spacious. The house is immaculate. Breakfast was deliciously prepared by Rosalie, also the owner. We were made to feel very welcomed and comfortable, like we were family. We cannot wait to go back and visit with Doug and Rose. Can't say enough about...

My wife and I stayed the night here on a somewhat impromptu trip to Springfield. Our choices were between Flagg Farmstead and another BnB, but the fact that this particular place did not have a website where you could book a room was very interesting to me. It may not seem like much, but having to call the place and...

Travelled cross country in August 2016 and spent two nights at this property during our travels and had a great stay. It is a beautiful, spacious, clean, historic property that is convenient to all the various historic sites located in the area. Our hosts were terrific and could not have been more helpful in helping us plan our days. The...

We stayed at the Flagg Farmstead over the Thanksgiving weekend. It was a wonderful historic B&B (on the National Register of Historic Homes) and our hosts (Doug and Rosalie) were so helpful in highlighting places to see on our Lincoln trip. The home is so comfortable and our room was beautiful. They provide free tickets to visit the Lincoln Presidential...

This weekend, my husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at The Flagg Farmstead. It was a totally wonderful experience. The home was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was wonderful too. What made it so outstanding though were the innkeepers, Doug and Rosalie Polite, along with the perfect little fluffy white pooch, Isabella. If you are ever looking for...
