The thing my wife and I most love about ABB is that in this time of under performance in most everything we buy, eat, and experience. We can generally count on getting back what is being offered by a host. Myrna and Joe went so far and above in their attention to us and our experience, while staying with them. This Incredible 100 year old house has been lovingly restored, and yet the amenities were modern while not taking away from the architectural integrity that flooded your senses. We were a block off the town square, and took in a clock tower tour, and walked through a farmers market being held. The B&B is only 30 minutes from Springfield, and the President Lincoln everything. Do not miss this experience!

Response from Myrna & Joe:
We are happy that you chose our fine property for your stay while in the are for a family wedding and all the events surrounding it. As a Bed & Breakfast Hotel since 1994 we have had few guests whom we would not want to return. We are looking forward for you to have a reason to come back. The Parr's are nice folks, engaging conversationalists, who appreciate quality surroundings and treatment and other lodging providers would enjoy having them as guests.

Myrna & Joe User Profile

Myrna is a retired high school classroom teacher of 28 years and Joe is retired from having a specialty spray painting business for 20 years. This is a second career for both of us. We moved back home to watch over aging parents and did this on a whim in 1993 and it has become a smashing success.

We like to travel and have good assistants which allows us to get away from time to time.

Reviews show that our guests have enjoyed their stay in our property since 1994. We are friendly, attentive to our guests and strive to provide the finest of lodging and lodging experience for our guests given what we have to work with.
