Welcome to The Dickey House Bed and Breakfast!
Operating as a B&B for the past 27 years, our bed & breakfast near Springfield, Missouri is a 108-year-old unique and gracious Greek Revival mansion that sits on an acre of gardens. The mansion was built at the turn of the 20th century by Samuel N. Dickey, the poor son of a farmer father and school teacher mother. Self-taught, Mr. Dickey later became a prominent prosecuting attorney in Marshfield and Webster county. The Mansion remained in the family until 1970 when the daughter, Ms. Ella, passed away.
As a Springfield area bed and breakfast, this majestic home invites you to step back in time while enjoying all the amenities of modern life. From the first glimpse of this massive mansion, with its four, three-foot-diameter handmade columns, Widow’s Walk and new beveled glass front entrance, you feel that you have touched an era that has long since passed. The mansion has been renovated and updated in 2000 and again in 2014 and has an upscale look and feel with a blend of the old and new.
After you arrive and are settled, you may enjoy the outside lawns and gardens, studded with trees of many types; majestic Oaks, Walnut, Hickory and more, or choose to sit and enjoy the view of our koi pond and the soothing sound of its waterfall, or just enjoy nature and read a book in your room or suite. There are seven guestrooms, each with a private bath. You’ll step into rooms tastefully filled with antiques and reproduction furnishings. Your comfortable bedroom and modern bathroom offer a variety of distinctive touches that let you know you are indeed a special guest, and each room comes equipped with a TV, VCR and DVD player.
While in the area, be certain to visit The Marshfield Town Square, Hidden Waters Park, The Callaway Cabin which is the oldest preserved cabin in Webster County, The Hubble Telescope Replica on the Square, Antique stores and the nearby Buena Vista Exotic Animal Park, Fantastic Caverns and of course, the Flagship Bass Pro Shop in Springfield.
