About the property

New Listing! We are offering a wonderful opportunity to stay in this two story Victorian era home, complete with wrap front and side porch for your Springfield visit! This home is located on the north side of Springfield with great access to major highways and our wonderful downtown and historic Commercial St area. The colleges and Springfield Cardinals ball field are close as well. Take a tour of a world renowned chocolate factory, or enjoy live music at Springfield's oldest tavern from the 1870's. Experience the new Wonders of Wildlife museum and Aquarium! There is something for everyone. Additionally Springfield's top festivals and holiday activities are centered in midtown and downtown areas.

It is truly a charmer with original woodwork throughout, double staircase, outside gardens and enough room to really spread out. Beautiful décor, quality beds and linens, fully stocked kitchen, we have tried to think of everything!

The layout:

The house has three bedrooms upstairs - all spacious and with closets. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed (with a feather bed topper - just like you remember at grandmas!), bedroom 2 has a queen bed, and bedroom 3 has 2 full beds and a sleeper sofa. Bedroom 3 also has a TV. One bathroom is located upstairs with a claw foot soaking tub. Downstairs you have a living room and a family room with large screen TV, formal dining room and a breakfast nook, a fully furnished kitchen, a downstairs bathroom with a shower, and a laundry room. We provide internet, Wi-Fi, cable TV and Netflix.

The house has three entry/exits - front door, side door and back door to the fenced in patio area.

The front yard is also fenced in. There is a large garage in back of the house, but you do not have access to that. You are however, welcome to make use of the additional yard space in back of the garage for outdoor activities. It is fairly private and would make a great area set up for special events. We have a long driveway for parking. The house sits next to a lovely church that has a nice parking lot, but obviously it is their parking lot and we ask that you are considerate of that especially on Sundays and Wednesdays. They have a very small congregation and typically only a few cars are there but we want to be good neighbors!

We offer discounts on full week stays and long term rentals. Whether its business or pleasure you will not be disappointed!

About Carla Drysdale

I am a retired boutique store owner. My husband continues to work in the Insurance industry. In our later years we have had the pleasure and opportunity to travel to many wonderful places and many times opt for a VRBO rental in lieu of a hotel. We enjoy the flexibility and space they provide. We also have friends and family who visit Springfield often. Owning a extra VRBO home seemed like a perfect fit for us!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with friends and we both have babies. The house has everything you need and was in the perfect location for us. The kitchen seriously has everything!! The front yard is so cute and was great place to sit and let the kids run around. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was so quaint. It made us feel like we were "at home". Resorts are very nice , but this home feel was a welcome change. We had 7 people in our family and we were all quite comfortable. It was also nice how well equipt the kitchen was with utensils, salt, pepper, and spices etc. When trying to prepare food for the family it was quite helpful. The location was very good also, as were close to the highway when we needed to get to Branson. The location was also great to get to everything Springfield has to offer. We had a great stay.

Great place for a group. Close to the city attractions.

  • 4 of 5

We booked the house for a group of friends that were in town for a wedding. The house had ample room for our group of six. It was also a short Uber to the wedding which was at the Savoy Ballroom. The things my group pointed out were minor inconveniences that didn't hamper our stay; (a) Upstairs gets slightly warmer but that's due to the home being older. And there was only one shower. None of the guys wanted to use the bath tub upstairs.

Beyond that, the charm of the home added to the experience. Large kitchen. Laundry machines on site. Tv and internet was available. Would book again.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so glad the house met your needs. You are correct that the upstairs and downstairs temperature varies a bit especially in the middle of summer. We do have an upstairs window air conditioner to help alleviate this issue. The entire house is of course central heat and air and we have ceiling fans in most rooms to circulate the air as well. And as you point out, the location and space of the house are wonderful features. We welcome you back any time!

It was very enjoyable long weekend with our family of 10 staying at the Southern Charmer..

  • 5 of 5

The Southern Charmer was very clean and well stocked for our family of 10. It is a very neat house with character and plenty of space for fun and quiet time for children. Our whole family loved it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We also think it has a great floor plan, it is easy for 3 or even 4 groups of people to be enjoying a separate activity without being on top of each other. You had a very nice family and I am glad I had the opportunity to meet you! We hope to see you next year!

A charming home with character.

  • 5 of 5

The only problem we had was that when the shower was in use, water pressure was low everywhere else. But it is a great location and a nice home.

Owner's Response: Your ladies group were so lovely! I appreciate your taking the time to write a review. I am not sure what the issue was with the water pressure, I haven't had anyone else mention this. I will definitely have someone take a look and see if we can alleviate this problem.
