About John Horner

We are native residents of Springfield and have close friend and family ties to the beautiful and fairly historic Rountree neighborhood. We live within one mile of the property in a late 19th century historic home. We recently acquired the Kickapoo House because of its simple yet attractive characteristics and spacious shaded yard. John is a self employed civil engineer and Pat is an active grandmother.

John Horner purchased this house in 2014

Why John Horner chose Rountree

This house is situated in one of Springfield's established Rountree neighborhood with friendly neighbors and single family residences. The area has tree lined streets and carefully maintained homes with a mixture of ranch, bungalow, colonial, and other traditional style homes.

What makes this house unique

We are a family friendly operation and prefer guests in the spirit of families, married couples, and responsible singles.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Horner has a lovely home in a central location. The house is charming and well-equipped. It was perfect for our family stay there. We have stayed at one of Mr. Horner's properties for several years and we've never been disappointed.

Fantastic home - very warm and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights in The Kickapoo Place and we will definitely stay again. The fenced back yard was perfect for the grandbabies to play. We grilled one night and truly enjoyed the space the home afforded, but it was also warm and inviting. Great neighborhood. The parking is a bit of an issue as you can only park on the street "freely" on Sundays, and the other days if you have more cars than fit in the driveway, or guests who come to visit, they need to have a permit to park on the street. We didn't have any issues but I could see where that could potentially be an issue. We'll definitely stay again. p.s. literally the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in and we're old LOL :) Thank you to the Horners for a beautiful weekend with our family.

Excellent experience

Stayed at Kickapoo Place during our son's wedding. The house was well-maintained, tastefully decorated and comfortable. It's location is close to the MSU campus and a vibrant downtown scene. Would definitely use again if the need arises.

Charming home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Kickapoo Place! The house was well maintained and very charming. The beds are extremely comfortable and there is a large fenced back yard for the kids to play in. It was nice to have a place to call home for the weekend while visiting our daughters. Thank you!

The home is furnished nicely and has what is needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed being so close to MSU for the functions we were attending...even walked a couple of times!
