One of our favorite places

4.8 on November 15, 2012

My husband and I have been staying at the inn for over 10 years...we are making our way through all of the jacuzzi rooms. We have always found the inn to be a wonderful place to stay from the fireplaces, to the jacuzzi's, to the porches and cookies. We have found that the TV's can be unreliable and it's touch and go if you'll have a working remote control, but if you're not going for that (or if you're prepared) you wouldn't even notice this. It's amazing how much the inn has changed over the years and is continuing to evolve. We hope to continue being able to have our secret get-aways here, and love how every room is different. The bell house suites are two of my favorite, and the Rose suite? Honeymoon worthy. Each room has it's own particular charm.

Very beautiful place located near almost all the attractions of Springfield. The staff were extreamly friendly, couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay and our room was quiet. Loved the wine/cheese set up each night and the good breakfast in the moning. Highly recommend. Rev. ROB, Michigan

Very nice, Historic Inn

My new husband and I stayed here the night after our wedding. The room was beautiful, with a private balcony and whirlpool tub in the room. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and the staff was so friendly. We would definitely go back again for another stay.

A Needed Relaxing Getaway

5 on February 12, 2010

Thank you to the Inn at 835 for giving me and my husband a relaxing and romantic retreat. I was completely surprised by my husband planning this getaway for us. The lady at the front desk checking us in was so very helpful with dinner reservations, we eat a great meal at Maldaner. After dinner our room was dressed for romance, our bed was turned down, we had champagne, strawberries and yummy cookies waiting for us. To top it off, a jazz CD was playing in the player. I couldn't wait to get into the Jacuzzi and pop the top on the champagne. Our stay could not be more perfect. Thank you to our new friends at the Inn at 835. We will be back, I hope soon. Can't wait.

My husband and I were married at the Inn. It was great! All of our family and friends had a wonderful. The employees were nice and friendly. Food was excellent! We stayed in the Wisteria Suite. The room was very warm. The bathroom very spacious. Front desk was helpful and very friendly.


4.8 on March 03, 2009

My husband and I stayed here the day after our wedding as our honeymoon was a couple months away but we still wanted a couple days to ourselves. This was my second stay at a bed & breakfast and while I looked at the website I really wasn't sure what to expect. I am in love with this place. It was amazing. We had the Wisteria room. Everything was spectacularly clean and just beautiful. Everyone we came into contact with was very nice and wanted to make sure everything was just right. There was a wonderful bed, fireplace and a giant jacuzzi that was like a pool. There was also a seperate shower. Nice amenities too. At night there are fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! Who else does that?! I didn't know it but my husband set up the add on of a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and they were nicely laid out when we got back from dinner. There is wine and cheese and crackers set out at 5 o'clock and that was fun and then the coffee and different syrups and cream the next morning was great too! Breakfast was amazing! I really don't understand why I've been staying in these horrible hotels all my life when I could have been staying at places like this for cheaper!! The only complaint I've ever heard is that if you stay on a Sat night the property may be hosting a wedding. I also heard that they are opening up a new parlor for the guests that are not part of said wedding. From what I understand the wedding party can be quite rude to their "uninvited guests" and this way you can avoid that. We were there on a Sunday so we didn't have to deal with it but just a forewarning.

rude at front desk

2.6 on October 19, 2008

It was a tough decision because the inn looks beautiful and the rooms are to, however the woman at the front desk was icy and very rude. My friend who had made the reservation tried to get the money refunded and could not.

If you wish to feel like Abraham Lincoln must have living in a large home then this place is for you. We stayed in the Rose Room this time and it is very much like staying in one of the White House bedrooms, except the Rose room has a balcony, which we have done a long time ago. The staff are there but you never see them unless you want to have them around. The breakfast is very well done and as we required only cereal and a fruit cup they chef was very eager to fix those for us special. The parking lot is very well lit and the front door to the building requires a key so you do not have to worry about strangers wandering in. Also they have made available a very large parlor that all guests may enjoy up on the third floor. This room is very palatial and very relaxing for tea or just watching tv. The building is very close to the State Capital building which was very convienient for me. If you are going to Springfiled, forget the hotels and stay here. You will not regret it.
