I have been here perhaps 5 to 6 times over the last 10-12 years, but not in the last couple. Just don't get back to this part of the US very often. As I was coming by, and wanted a few days (3) of just peace and quiet - I know this would be the place. This is a wonderful...

It was a privilege to host you once again, Wil! Even though The Mansion at Elfindale is located near the middle of Springfield and only a mile from both Bass Pro Shops HQ and (the soon-to-be-open) Wonders of Wildlife, it affords travelers like you with peace and quiet in its "tucked away" location. Please visit us again the next time...

This place was awesome! How often do you get to stay at a mansion! The free breakfast was delicious and the ladies were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the mansion. We stayed in the Flora Jane Room. Our friends stayed in the Veranda Room that actually has a veranda you can go out to and enjoy.

At over 22,00 sq. ft, The Mansion does offer quite a unique overnight experience, Julie. Thanks for your kind observations! Please come back and stay in another of the 13 different suites, maybe even The Tower. We're looking forward to welcoming you again!

We only live about a mile away from this bed and breakfast and hesitated trying it out because of a poor experience with a Victorian style hotel in eureka springs. We were pleasantly surprised with everything! The building is gorgeous! Our room was great and the staff were very kind and had great customer service! We are making this Bed...

We simply toured the mansion -- did not stay overnight. There are no organized tours -- just go for lunch (only open Wed-Fri, 11-2 pm) and you can walk around on your own or one of the staff will walk with you before/after you eat. Very interesting history and incredible craftsmanship. Now operates as a bed-and-breakfast with rooms all decorated...

Thanks you for the kind comments, TK! The excellent craftsmanship of the builders in 1892 and of the renovators in 1990 is definitely on display in The Mansion. Stop by again when you're in Springfield and stay with us overnight. We have delicious breakfasts!

Came for a family wedding at the Chapel attached to the B&B. Stayed in the Hunt Suite and loved the bed and furnishings. The staff and food are amazing! Accommodated us for a very late arrival. The only reason not a 5 is I never give full ratings.

I have past by here a number of time in the past 20 years and as much as the out side remains much the same as older classics should the inside is as my 10 year old son puts it "WOW" and the warm friendly just like family service is amazing. It's charm it's class it's classic. Always a pleasure.

Exceptional property. Cleanliness was exemplary throughout, staff courteous and accommodating. The architecture is amazing, with special thanks to Myra for showing us the chapel and rooms with stunning features, as well as sharing the history. SO glad we stayed, really looking to return with more time.
