About Krystal Drysdale

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

Why Krystal Drysdale chose Springfield

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.

We loved this house filled with character!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Quiet, comfortable, and close to where we needed to be

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much! You were a great guest and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. C St as we call Commercial is loads of fun. As for cable - it should be working! So sorry to hear that was a problem, any future stays please contact me via phone or text and I will do my best to fix a problem in the house. We will send maintenance ASAP and make sure this is corrected for our next scheduled guest.

Loved the claw foot tub in the upstairs bathroom and the large shower downstairs. House was roomy enough to host my family Christmas party.

Great Stay in Springfield

  • 5 of 5

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!
