The Rippon-Kinsella House es una victoriana de ladrillo 1871 situados en una finca de media hectárea en un tranquilo barrio arbolado en el lado norte de Springfield. Estamos a poca distancia a pie del cementerio de Oak Ridge y la tumba de Lincoln, y estamos a sólo diez minutos del centro y otros sitios históricos, como la casa de Lincoln, el Museo Presidencial Abraham Lincoln y de Frank Lloyd Wright Dana-Thomas House. Relájese junto a la chimenea en la sala con una copa de vino. Disfrute de una tarde tranquila en el porche o montar una de nuestras bicicletas a través de Oak Ridge Cemetery o cerca de Lincoln Park.

Unfortunately, we were only able to spend one night at the Rippon-Kinsella House. We traveled from Florida to Quincy for a wedding, so we booked the Rippon-Kinsella House for Sunday night as our flight back to Florida was on Monday. Roger greeted us and showed around the property, and then showed us to our room-we stayed in the Captain's room. The interior is tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques, and the outdoors is beautifully landscaped. Roger recommended the Westwoods Lodge & Pub for dinner. Excellent recommendation, it's charmingly rustic, with lots of character and great food. After dinner we spent the rest of the evening on the front porch, laughing and exchanging stories with Roger and David. They even shared their kitchen with us so that we could keep our beverages cold. Roger served us a breakfast to die for on the front porch in the morning. If your in the Springfield area, I highly recommend spending at least a couple of nights at The Rippon-Kinsella House. Wishing Roger and David continued success, and hope to see them again in our future travels.

My husband and I are driving Route 66 from Chicsgo to our home in California. We called Roger the day prior to our arrival to reserve the Maids Room. We got to Springfield about an hour later than we expected, which was 4 hours after normal check in (we called to say that we would be late). Roger greeted us and showed us around the house. He also graciously upgraded us to the Captains Quarters. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. I did not observe any issues with the sink draining, unlike some of the prior reviews noted. Roger was friendly. He made us a very nice breakfast and chatted with us as we were finishing it. Afterwards we checked out, but Roger let us leave our car in the parking area while we walked a few blocks to ser the Lincoln Tomb. We then followed his recommendation and toured the Lincoln Libraty and Home site. The libraty was very well done. We had a nice day and a nice stay with Roger and Dave. Recommend for those who like staying in historical structures rather than the standard hotel room.

We had a wonderful time! Hosts were so fun - great conversation. Breakfasts were good and plenty. Location is perfect for seeing so many of the sites. We recommend!

We had only one night to stay, but found it an exceptional experience in so many ways ... a prompt and warm, good humored greeting (even though we had arrived a bit later than ideal); a round-the-clock offer to address any needs that we might have; a very intriguing collection of antique photos, furniture, ships, radios, etc.; a team who obviously cared about their community and could suggest many places; and they were open to talking about our interests in politics, culture, etc.; a fun puppy and kitty kept outdoors but available for petting; a spacious garden yard, comfy bed; refreshing shower; helpful internet access; yummy after-hours snack and a scrumptious breakfast. Some Lincoln historic sites were in easy walking distance, and many others were a short drive away. Hosts provided us tips on navigating the area too. If we are back in Springfield, we know where we'd like to stay!

My wife and I stayed for three nights and were so very impressed with the hospitality. Roger is a wonderful host and we enjoyed chatting with him and David on the porch and over breakfast. The house and grounds are beautiful and we both loved the calm, serene and peaceful neighborhood. I sat on the porch for hours listening to the birds and enjoying the fresh air (I actually fell asleep on the porch twice!) Breakfast was very tasty and plentiful and Roger made sure I always had coffee! Roger's baked goods are exceptional! This was a very friendly, comfortable and relaxing visit. Roger and David went above and beyond to make our visit wonderful!
