Walnut Street Inn is a twelve-room bed and breakfast inn conveniently tucked into the heart of Springfield, Missouri. The first Springfield Symphony's Designers' Showcase Home, every room in the Main House was decorated by a different innovative designer. Each of our distinctive guest rooms has a private bath, queen or king bed, two line telephone, and cable television with over 67 channels. 

Comfortable chairs and chaise lounges invite you to unwind with one of our many treasured antique books. Flickering fireplaces relax you to sleep in canopied beds warmed with down comforters or cozy quilts. Watch the fireflies play on the lawn or soak in the early morning sunlight from your private balcony. Sink into a big tub and feel your tension float away like bubbles.... Spend a few precious hours to retreat, rest, restore and rediscover the poetry in life. 

Main House Guest Rooms

The "Main House" as we call it, was built in 1894 and houses six B&B rooms, two parlors, our dining room, our kitchen and our largest outside deck and porches. If you enjoy the B&B experience and like talking to other guests or innkeepers, this is where you want to be. If you are traveling with other friends and family, the main house offers large parlors where you can converse away the hours and we can treat you to coffee, tea and any leftover muffins or cookies. With six rooms, it is often the perfect size to bring everyone and take over the house for family celebrations. Need more space? All 12 rooms of the Inn are often rented together for local graduations, weddings and special family anniversaries. Let the Walnut Street Inn be your private family Inn. All 6 rooms, plus the parlors and outside sitting areas and porches have free Wi-Fi access.

O'Neill Room--($179) Named for acclaimed artist Rose O'Neill, this enticing room of twilight blue features the best of a "social" location (off the second floor parlor) and a private sanctuary (with a private balcony entrance/exit). It has a four-poster iron canopy king bed draped with lace, two-person bubble jet tub, gas fireplace, stocked beverage bar, coffee maker, TV with DVD, WiFi access and a private bath with shower. Enjoy breakfast on the private balcony overlooking the south lawn and gardens or at your room's fireside breakfast table. 

McCann Room--($149) Originally the master bedroom, enjoy the beautiful bay windows in this sunny yellow alcove. This is the most photographed room in the house. Amenities include a four-poster, rice carved queen bed, gas fireplace with sitting area, stocked beverage bar, coffee maker, TV, WiFi access and a large bath with antique claw foot tub with a rainfall showerhead. You will not be able to put down the autobiography of Charles McCann, builder of the house. You may want to invite your friends and family to enjoy the semi-private second floor parlor with a fireplace just outside your door. 

Carver Room--($129) Named after George Washington Carver, this room is our only first floor room in the main house. The hand-painted library wall and the Missouri books and winged-back reading chair fireside, invite you to read in this room complete with a custom-designed queen bed, gas fireplace, stocked beverage bar, coffeemaker, TV, WiFi access and a private bath with a jetted tub/shower. This room is insulated from the street by our parlors and is one of our quietest rooms. Many guests of this room use our first floor parlor as their living room. Ask us about the authors and titles on the faux books in the wall mural, which boasts a history of the Inn. 

Rosen Room--($109) Named for the fourth owners of the home, the rich burgundy and hunter green of this Victorian room with four-poster queen bed make it a favorite. The private bath features the original porcelain fixtures and built-in cabinetry from 1910 when the plumbing came indoors! There is a coffeemaker, TV, WiFi access, and a wicker lounge, but you may want to enjoy the semi-private second floor parlor with a fireplace just outside your door. For folks traveling together, the Rosen, McCann and O'Neill rooms, all on the second floor, share a common parlor with a gas fireplace, couch, chairs and a game table. This floor is a great "private" home for your group.  

Wilder Room--($99) Quaint and cozy with a queen bed, this room is named for the well-loved Ozarks author Laura Ingalls Wilder and features a treetop balcony and an antique clawfoot tub/shower in the room at the foot of the bed. Relax into the soft embrace of the quilt-covered queen bed as you read about that "little house on the prairie." This third floor converted maid's quarters is ideal for single travelers or couples who want to "hide in the attic" at our lowest price. The private treetop balcony is best experienced at night (in your pajamas) where you can see the nighthawks circling in the evening sky. There is a TV, WiFi access and a stocked beverage bar just outside your door.

Benton Room--($149) This room showcases the works of Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton and features fifteen foot lofted ceilings and skylights. In our largest room, you will feel like a kid again, stealing away to Grandma's attic. There are two queen beds, a living room area (with a sofa), large TV, DVD player, WiFi access, coffeemaker, microwave, a private bath with an antique clawfoot tub/shower and a stocked beverage bar just outside your door. The Wilder Room (described above) and Benton Room are perfect rooms to share with family or friends. We have had ladies' prayer groups, bride and bridesmaids parties and sleepovers for preteens in these two rooms (Mom or Dad gets the Wilder Room!).


Carriage House Guest Rooms

The Carriage House was also built in 1894 and was a dirt floor stable until 1991, when it was converted to four lovely and secluded B&B rooms with private baths. Two large rooms on the first floor give easy access (the Jewell Room is handicap accessible) and have wonderful "built in" canopy beds with gas fireplaces and two-person whirlpool tubs, while the upstairs rooms offer gas fireplaces and lofty ceilings with skylights. Need four rooms for friends or family? Take all four and be as noisy as you want! All 4 rooms, plus the outside sitting areas have free Wi-Fi access.

Danzero Room--($179) An explorer's sense of discovery is conveyed in this room decorated with steamer trunks, maps, globes and antique cameras. You'll feel like you've reached a cabin in the mountains as you relax in rich shades of burgundy and forest green complemented by the dark woodwork of a canopied, four-poster queen bed. The Danzero Room also has a gas fireplace, two-person jetted tub, separate bathroom with shower, cable TV, DVD player, WiFi access, complimentary stocked beverage bar and coffeemaker.

Jewell Room--($179) Step back in time as you unwind in this sumptuous room of rich cream, peach and sage green. The vintage hats, shoes, gloves and decadent floral prints add a remarkable air of history. To complete the elegance -- A canopied, four-poster queen bed, gas fireplace, two-person jetted tub, separate bathroom with shower, cable TV, WiFi access, complimentary stocked beverage bar and coffeemaker. 

Maschino Room--($129) Skylights bathe this golden room with soft morning sunlight. Bird houses, potted plants, and a queen bed with trellis headboard add to the illusion of being in your very own secluded garden. Spread a throw on the "ground" by the fireplace and bask in the serenity. Tucked away you will find a complimentary stocked beverage bar, cable TV,  WiFi access, and coffeemaker. The private bathroom includes a shower.

Robertson Room--($129) This room is a textured salute to a colorful Scotsman and his music. Rough beams, exposed brick and stucco harmonize with brass, wind and string instruments. Sunlight, dappled by the leaves of a towering walnut tree, filters through the skylights onto the queen bed.  A gas fireplace, TV, WiFi access, stocked beverage bar and coffeemaker finish the picture.  The private bathroom includes a shower. 


Cottage Inn Guest Rooms

The Cottage Inn, two doors east of the Main House, offers even the most privacy and seclusion from other guests. It was manufactured in 1904 in Chicago and then shipped by train to Springfield. It is one of many Sears Catalogue homes on Walnut Street. The two rooms are on the second floor and, in a cottage style, are less Victorian than the main house. The Cottage Inn offers the privacy and unique features like a bubble jet tub and our only steam bath. Both rooms plus the outside sitting areas on the porch have free Wi-Fi access.


Finley Suite--($179)  Named after Springfield's Finley River, this large L-shaped suite is perfect for guests on a romantic getaway who want to be alone. Curl up together in an over-sized "cuddling chair" for two or sink into a high, four-poster queen feather* bed. Features include a gas fireplace and a two-person bubble jet tub (lit by a stained glass window salvaged from a house in London), a separate bathroom with a walk-in shower, TV, WiFi access and a stocked beverage bar and coffeemaker. The over-sized chair also folds out to a full sized twin bed for a third guest.

*feather mattress can be removed



Jordan Room--($149) Named after Jordan Creek that runs in the valley just north of the Inn, this room is richly decorated in sage greens, burgundy and dark oak. Enjoy your stay by curling up on the four-poster queen feather* bed or relaxing in the unique two-person steam shower. Features include a gas fireplace, TV, WiFi access and a stocked beverage bar and coffeemaker.

*feather mattress can be removed


Our most important amenity is the atmosphere you can experience. Here is what our guests say about us!

We stayed (in the Jordan room) to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. It was the best day I've ever had. Before we arrived here, Jeremy took me out all day, cooked for me, and catered the whole day around me. I thought that was wonderful enough, but I was completely blown away when I opened my eyes and was standing in the middle of this room. There was music, candles, rose petals, fireplace, champagne and strawberries. It was the sweetest, most romantic and thoughtful thing anyone has ever done for me. I can think of no one else I would have wanted to share this room with. I love you!

Diana, to her husband of two years, Jeremy, in the Jordan Room
