Great home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this charming two bedroom home. No complaints, very cozy and clean. The neighborhood is great and yard is well-maintained. Definitely a great value and better than staying in a hotel.

Comfortable Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was as detailed in description.

Due to the inclement weather I liked that the grocery store and some shops were very close to the house.

We planned a picnic in the backyard the last day. The grandchildren loved it.

The Weller House

  • 5 of 5

The Weller House is such a cute, little bungalow. We just loved it! It was perfect for us to come "home" to after spending the day with family. Quiet except for the birds singing. Any questions or concerns we had were answered promptly. We had to leave a day early because I got sick. Mr. Horner was quick to let me know that he would refund us for the night we wouldn't be staying. We definitely enjoyed our stay!

Great location, neighborhood and value!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Springfield for a tour of MO State University which was located just a few minutes from the Weller House. The home is in a nice, well established, quiet neighborhood with easy access to all the things we were looking for, mainly the university and local eating establishments. The interior was cozy and quaint, the kitchen had everything you would need and the bathroom was nicely remodeled. Being winter we did not spend time in the nice backyard but could see how it would be a nice place to hang out. The owners were easy to communicate with and timely in their responses. We would choose The Weller House again should we have future trips to Springfield.
