We wanted to stay in Springfield to see the historic sites. Specifically looked for a bed and breakfast but most were really mom and pop places. I didn't want to stay in a room that looked like my mom's spare room! Fell in love with the pictures and history online for the Pasfield House. My husband was very nervous about a bed and breakfast since he had never stayed in one and he has nothing but good things to say!!
The room was beautiful and a decent size. We love the kitchenette and lovely bathroom! I was relieved that the breakfast was in our room to heat up at our leisure as I really didn't want to have breakfast with a bunch of strangers, plus I didn't want to get dressed!! We had a private breakfast, hot coffee, and didn't have to wash the dishes!!
This was very close to all the sites. We chose to drive but most could walk it. Parking everywhere was ample and cheap or free.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to avoid a hotel. It is pricier than some other bed and breakfast places, but it is all new with a flat screen TV, private bath, computer access and beautiful architecture! I love the history of the house and the laid back ambiance of the establishment.
We are making plans to return with our children (larger suite) so they can see the Land of Lincoln too.
