Arrington's Bed & Breakfast Journal's Inn Traveler - Winter 2003
The Rosberg House - Lindsborg, Kansas

In 1869, Lindsborg was established by a group of Swedish pioneers.  The community is located four miles off Interstate 135 and halfway between Salina and McPherson in central Kansas.

Rosberg House - Lindsborg, Kansas - Bed & Breakfast

Dining Room

David and Sabrina Spellman came to love this little community, nicknamed "Little Sweden," and more importantly fell in love with the house with a turret, right off Main Street.  Being the romantic type, the couple, with the help of Sabrina's parents and other family members, spent four-and-a-half years renovating and adding a personal touch to every detail of the Rosberg House Bed & Breakfast, turning it into an elegant and romantic getaway for lovers and newlyweds.
Visitors attracted to Lindsborg by the Swedish heritage and the many festivals that the community has each year are drawn to the beautiful three story Queen Anne home, which has been totally renovated and refurbished to offer both yesterday's charm with today's comfort.  The Rosberg House is vivid and inviting.  In season, beautiful flowers accent the wide inviting front porch.

Grand Entrance

Turret Suite

The home was built in 1885 for Swedish immigrant Carl Victor Rosberg and his family and remained their home until the early 1920's.  It is located along historic brick streets where you will find quaint shops, restaurants, art galleries and other attractions.  Inside, guests are treated to Victorian furnishings and elegant decor.
Owners/Innkeepers David and Sabrina Spellman have spared no effort in recreating the atmosphere of a century ago.  The bed and breakfast offers five guest rooms including two suites, each one attractively decorated with it's own theme.  All rooms and suites offer private baths, cable, TV/VCR's and private phone lines equipped with data ports for the business traveler.  Two suites offer whirlpools for two and gas fireplaces.  The Lincoln Room with its Civil War theme also has a whirlpool for two.  A delicious breakfast, served privately, is included with each overnight stay.  The couple will also pack a special picnic lunch for their guests to enjoy at one of Lindsborg's parks.  Guests can also tour the town on the inn's tandem bicycle.
Lindsborg is known for having many working artists who live in town and for various festivals in which the artists display their works.  As a visitor to Lindsborg you can enjoy the arts; especially Swedish Art.  Visitors can stroll downtown while viewing the herd of Wild Dala horses - Lindsborg's take on Chicago's cows on parade.  The dala horse is a Swedish folk art that the Lindsborg community adopted as their Swedish symbol; the wild ones are of the four-foot variety.  Most every home has the smaller version of the dala horse on the house or mailbox.  Visitors can enjoy Swedish or American food at the Swedish Crown Restaurant in downtown Lindsborg.
For history buffs, there is the Old Mill Museum, Bethany Lutheran Church, Sandzen Gallery and Bethany College where a statue of Carl Swensson, the College founder, stands.  Famous Swedish Artist Birger Sandzen was a professor at the college, and whose art gallery is on the college campus.  The Old Mill was a flourmill that ran in the late 1800's and early 1900's generating electricity off the river behind it.
Once the touring is complete, the Rosberg House offers a place to relax.  In the privately enclosed backyard you can spend the afternoon in the swimming pool or sipping your favorite drink among the flower gardens located in the patio courtyard.  For guests who want to enjoy Lindsborg's Main Street, there is a large front porch with a gazebo and porch swing.

Swimming Pool

Before they leave each morning, guests can enjoy a Rosberg House specialty - French Toast Sundae or Swedish Pancakes with Lingonberries.  The Spellman's make your breakfast special.  If you are staying in one of the suites you can have your breakfast served in your room.  Your stay at the Rosberg House, for whatever reason, will always be a memorable experience.
