A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was in the house. Home was very inviting. Only suggestion I would have is a king size bed, because that is what most of us old married people use. Would stay there again. Note: loved the big tree in the back yard. Larry Cook

Adorable house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Weller House for 4 days and absolutely loved it. It is very quaint and well equipped. We have family that live in Springfield and the backyard was a super place to be and allow the kids to run around the yard for their short visits. Beds were comfy, kitchen was good and the house was quiet. The location was convenient for us, too. We had a problem with the WIFI and John had it fixed quickly along with a couple other small issues. Great response and great demeanor while dealing with 3 women!

Everyone raved about the house and we would definitely stay again should the opportunity arise!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying in the Weller House. I grew up in Springfield, and I often return for visits. I previously stayed with friends or in hotels, but having a one-year-old daughter made me want our own space. It was perfect for us.

The house is small, but it doesn't feel cramped. The historic features are neat, but the modern updates were appreciated, too. The backyard was perfect to have a few friends over to visit on the patio, and I loved having morning coffee out there, too! The master bedroom was well-appointed, nice linens, comfy mattress. The bathroom is adorable, too.

The location is awesome! Close to the university and downtown, walking distance to a few places... I can't imagine staying anywhere else next time I'm in Springfield. John was great to work with, very quick to reply to my emails. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon such a great place!

We stayed in John and Pat's house during Sprong Break, March 2016. The house is so quaint and decorated with taste and class. It's a beautiful home in a great old

Neighborhood. We would recommend this property to anyone and is we're in Springfield again we hope it will be in this lovely house!

Wonderful period house in historic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovingly maintained by the owners, who were so helpful during our stay. It has everything you could want and more and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is exceptionally clean and well organized. The house is within easy distance of downtown shops and restaurants and is a great neighborhood to walk in. We loved the historic character of the house and the owners have maintained original features of the house which is really great to see. The house is not huge but a nice size and the backyard and outdoor patio lovely (although it was a bit too cold to sit out there during our stay). The kitchen is really well equipped with everything you could want. If you are used to a king sized bed you will find the master bed a bit small. Overall a stand out experience and we will definitely stay here again if in town.
