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

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.

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!
