About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Close To Restaurants, Shopping, And Downtown Springfield

You are sure to enjoy this 78yr old charming home, built by our relatives in 1937. The original detail of its character is still in tact. It provides easy access to restaurants, shopping and car rentals. We hope to provide our guests with comfortable living and warm ambiance. We are in walking distance to Avis car rental or Enterprise, Ozarks founded Mexican Villa since 1951, and Bass Pro Shops a few blocks down the road.

About Johnny Lively

I am a devoted husband and father to three children, three and under. I love to travel and spend time in the outdoors. That's why i enjoy living in the Ozarks, it's breathtakingly beautiful! My family and I are currently living in Springfield and plan to raise our children here. It's safe, grounded, and secure. Thanks for reading. We hope to get to know our guests a little more through personal contact.

Johnny Lively purchased this house in 2011

Why Johnny Lively chose Springfield

My family built and have owned this doll house since 1937, and now we would like to share it with you. Hardwood floors are throughout the home, with carpet in the bedrooms for extra comfort. It boasts a unique stained glass window in the kitchen, and depression glass chandelier in the dining room, original to the home. The downstairs was hand dug and fully finished allowing a lot more space to better accommodate. Come and enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Avis car rental is right next door for easy access if needed, Bass Pro is just a couple blocks east, restaurants in walking distance, and Springfield Cardinals stadium minutes away, along with Missouri State University and downtown Springfield.

Very attentive owner. Quaint decor with all the amenities you need. I love staying at rental properties because each has its own character and charm but they have to be clean which is what you will get here. Thank you Mr. Lively.

Nice, clean, homey feel.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house. With 5 people we didn't feel cramped or confined like in a hotel room. It is a dated house and the stove top and oven reminded me of when I was little but my youngest daughter was fascinated with them. Everything was clean and comfy. We found everything in the kitchen that we needed. We liked the location and didn't hear any traffic or outside noise. We have already told several people about the house, location and recommended it to them for a stay if they go down to Springfield.

This home is immaculate and there is no cleaning fee that is charged! You can even stay just for 1 night.

The owner was very quick to respond and accommodating. The check out time is not until 1:00 pm. This really helped us as we had things planned in the SGF area and did not get in until late. There is a Perkins restaurant nearby that stays open late.

Why stay in a room when you can rent a whole home for the price of a room or less? Yes, this is an older home, but that is part of the fun.

We would not hesitate to stay here again!

Thank you Mr. Lively!

Location is good!

  • 4 of 5

The place worked out nicely. The house is very dated, but if you're just looking for a clean bed/bathroom, it's a good fit. Conveniently located near a convenient store which is where we had breakfast each day.
