The grounds, the accomodations, the food and the hosts were all outstanding.Doug & Rosalie warmly welcomed us upon our arrival; they answered questions, suggested restaurants to eat at, and guided us as to things to see and do in Springfield.

The couple who own this B&B are wonderful people! The house is clean and beautiful!!!! Very easy access to downtown and other historic sites. Beautiful front porch to sit and relax! Breakfast was lovely!! You sit and get served- fresh fruit, cornmeal blueberry pancakes, homemade granola, etc. We spent 3 nights there. The owners also made some wonderful restaurant recommendations,...

Rosalie and Doug are pitch-perfect in setting exactly the right tone for this beautiful, historic B&B. Every room in this home is tastefully and elegantly decorated and is immaculately clean. The atmosphere is warm, hospitable and relaxed -- the opposite of stuffy. The attention to detail is remarkable. Our stay was enhanced by many small kindnesses -- iced tea on...

Doug & Rosealie were fantastic hosts for this awesome surprise birthday present! I have driven by this gorgeous & wonderfully maintained home for years and had always wanted to spend the night there.

We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Flagg Farmstead Bed and Breakfast. Both Doug and Rosalie were very friendly. They enjoyed sharing about the history of the house, which was quite enjoyable for us. They also had homemade cookies waiting for us upon arrival which were quite delicious. We enjoyed using the porch swing and porch furniture to relax, watch...

We would highly recommend staying at the the Flagg Farmstead B&B. Super clean and nicely decorated and you could tell the hosts love running this place. The breakfast was delicious and the free tickets to the museum definitely made this a most affordable experience. If we ever come down to Springfield again, we're definitely coming back to FF B&B

We stayed in the New Salem Room. The room was SO clean and tastefully decorated. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed the tour and history of the house. The weather was perfect when we stayed and were able to sit on the front porch and enjoy some wine. The granola bars (which were gluten free) were very good. We...

Dawn O. My second stay at the Flagg Farmstead was just as fantastic as the first. Everyone asks Rose for her recipes--the French toast--out of this world! The entire experience is so relaxing.
