Welcome to a little taste of Provence in the heart of Springfield, Missouri. Our historical home is nestled in the original Midtown area conveniently located within minutes to both midtown & downtown parks, shopping, theaters, restaurants, bars, breweries, and even Springfield Cardinal’s baseball. Historic Commercial St. is only a 2 minute walk away offering unique shopping and activities at some of Springfield's originals. Take a tour of a world-renowned chocolate factory, or grab a beer and enjoy live music at Springfield's oldest tavern from the 1870s. Feel free to stroll down the red brick sidewalks of our neighborhood offering hints of days past to find access to public parks, swimming pools, train bridges, and outdoor music venues.
Maybe you just opt for picking up a pizza at Springfield's oldest Pizzaria for a night in with a movie. We provide our guests with 2 Flat Screen Televisions and access to both Netflix and a 100+ disc video library that is sure to please adults & little ones alike. Additionally Springfield's top festivals and holiday activities are centered in the Midtown and Downtown areas so if you happen to coincide your stay with some of these fantastic events you couldn't be in a better location. Our home is comfortable to anyone looking for a unique, convenient and cozy place to stay, whether it is for an executive stay, family event, or short term rental.
The home sleeps 6 comfortably with 2 bedrooms (1 King bed, 2 Twin beds), 2 bathrooms, and 1 sleeper sofa. The bedrooms are located on the second story with a full bathroom containing a clawfoot soaking tub. Downstairs, just off the living room is a full size sleeper sofa with easy access to the second main floor full bathroom that contains a large walk-in shower. Next to the bathroom is a laundry room complete with iron & ironing board. There is a fenced in backyard with a brick patio and grill to enjoy all the seasons Missouri has to offer.
We hope you will consider our little provencial house as your home away from home for your stay in Springfield, MO. Bienvenue!
I love to mix a little bit of old and modern which can be seen in the decor of my home. I have a love for the outdoors and the beauty this world has to offer. I hope that opening up my home to guest stays can help me to fund my aspirations for worldly travel.
Krystal Drysdale purchased this house in 2001
I bought this historical home while I was in college as a little bit of an art project. It was built in 1892 and at the time was in desperate need of some TLC and someone to rescue it from its current state. I worked hard over the course of 5 years to remodel and make improvements with the help of my mother, a local interior designer. My parents now manage rental properties and have kindly agreed to manage my home while I am away. I take pride in making it 'new' again while still maintaining the original charm of the home that first drew me to it. I hope you do too.
The house was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Plenty of towels, ironing board, coffee...
My husband, Mark, and I from Michigan and my sister, Terri, from Texas, flew into Springfield to visit our son, NIck and his wife, Kim, and their dog, Marvin for a long weekend. They live in a studio apartment so this house was the perfect place for us all to stay and be together. The fenced in back yard was perfect for Marvin and the front porch and back yard patio area were perfect for sitting outside to enjoy the warm days and cool evenings. The house itself had everything we needed. The décor is fun and warm, the bed in the main bedroom was huge and soooo comfortable! Commercial Street is just blocks away with very eclectic shops and pubs. We loved White River Brewery and Lindburghs and Moon City Pub and the great shops. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for a great stay! Our family of 4 enjoyed it.. We loved walking to Commercial Street for the best coffee, chocolate, and macrons!!!
Neighborhood was very quiet - only a dog barking once in awhile. Beds were comfy and my daughters enjoyed soaking in the big tub after their basketball games. The kitchen had everything we needed. Only downside was we couldn't get CBS and there was no cable to watch the start of March Madness basketball.
Loved the claw foot tub in the upstairs bathroom and the large shower downstairs. House was roomy enough to host my family Christmas party.
My family had a great time staying here for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Great location - the neighborhood was nice and quiet; and the property is just a few minutes away from Springfield's many downtown attractions.
For an older house, it seems to be well insulated - it kept our thin Texas blood warm.
The kitchen, washer & dryer, and downstairs shower have all been updated.
Plus, the house was well stocked with cookware and a movie library for all ages.
Most importantly, the owner was super-responsive and helpful.
We would stay here again!
