Welcome to Galloway Cottage located in Southeast Springfield! The Galloway area is home to Galloway Creek Greenway which consists of miles of walking, running, hiking and biking trails. The trail runs through Sequiota Park and connects to the Springfield Conservation Nature Center. You will not only be surrounded by this awesome urban trail but local restaurants, coffee shops, bike shops and vast shopping (many within walking distance). The new Farmers Park area located just a few short miles away is home to local eateries and unique shops and has the only indoor/outdoor farmers market year round. Springfield is also home to Route 66, Springfield Cardinals baseball, Bass Pro and the Ozark Fairgrounds which hosts various events throughout the year. Just a short 15 minute drive south is Ozark , Missouri which is home to some of the regions best antique shops and flea markets.
Galloway Cottage has recently been renovated and consists of light wood ceilings, barn doors, original hardwood flooring and simplicity throughout reflecting the 1940's with all the touches of modern day conveniences. The house offers 700 square feet, two bedrooms, one bath (tub/shower), full sized kitchen, living area and laundry. The living room consists of a TV/DVD player and various books and games. You will also find a TV/DVD player in the second bedroom. WiFi is provided. The kitchen consists of full sized appliances, granite countertops and is stocked with all cooking utensils and supplies you may need. French doors open from the master bedroom to a relaxing porch furnished with patio furniture, BBQ grill and plenty of green space where you can relax and have your morning tea and/or coffee.
Amy, you have created a lovely little nest for folks like my husband and me to find rest between exploring, shopping and eating. We enjoyed the set up very much and want to return when we can use the beautiful little deck. We found the kitchen well equipped, the bedrooms warm and comfortable (in fact the back bedroom has the coziest bed I've ever experienced away from home), the bathroom towels soft and plentiful, the throws clean, soft and inviting.
Some things to consider: the coffee carafe doesn't fit the coffee maker and needs to be replaced. It would be better to use travel size soap, lotion and shampoos rather than family size. The TVs are placed strangely and we couldn't get comfortable watching either one. The newness of the place made for a sort of varnishy smell that took some getting used to. But these things didn't detract much from the lovely atmosphere.
We WILL be back! We're thankful to have found a place just a couple miles from Springfield's main shopping areas, and close to a wonderful walking and recreation area, nestled in an up and coming boutique neighborhood. Thanks for a great experience! Rob and Julie
We absolutely loved this place and will definitely come back! My mom, sister, myself and our kiddos were in town to visit my mom's family just for the weekend. Given the number of us and having young kids, this worked out so much better than a hotel where we would have been tripping over each other and washing bottles in the bathroom sink. At this house, however, we had plenty of space, and a full kitchen to wash bottles and store milk in the refrigerator! Not to mention, it is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! It really felt like home away from home!
My only note would be that the little steps leading up to the door didn't have a railing, and then the support for the little gable overhead comes down in your head space where you have to make sure to duck around it. So having a fairly feeble mother and a young daughter, it made us a bit nervous for them to go up and down those steps. Definitely not a big deal, and would not stop us from coming back, just something to be careful of. Having DVD movies there was awesome to keep the kids occupied, and we loved playing card games at the table. It was also great to have a bit of a yard for the kids to run around in. All in all, it was a great trip and we would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking for something more homey than a hotel (and arguably less expensive). :)
We chose this quaint home and were not disappointed as the owners have shown great care and creativity in providing a uniquely renovated and decorated home providing quiet, clean and comfortable lodging in a great location. The house layout accommodates privacy but also areas to relax and visit inside or out on the back deck. We enjoyed preparing and sharing meals together when not out exploring the Springfield, Ozark or Branson area. Loved the easy access to the walking trail or restaurant. Also nice to have only a short drive to South Springfield shopping areas. So glad we chose this home over a hotel chain accommodation option.
