The Weller House

  • 5 of 5

The Weller House is such a cute, little bungalow. We just loved it! It was perfect for us to come "home" to after spending the day with family. Quiet except for the birds singing. Any questions or concerns we had were answered promptly. We had to leave a day early because I got sick. Mr. Horner was quick to let me know that he would refund us for the night we wouldn't be staying. We definitely enjoyed our stay!

Great location, neighborhood and value!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Springfield for a tour of MO State University which was located just a few minutes from the Weller House. The home is in a nice, well established, quiet neighborhood with easy access to all the things we were looking for, mainly the university and local eating establishments. The interior was cozy and quaint, the kitchen had everything you would need and the bathroom was nicely remodeled. Being winter we did not spend time in the nice backyard but could see how it would be a nice place to hang out. The owners were easy to communicate with and timely in their responses. We would choose The Weller House again should we have future trips to Springfield.

Charming in a beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Charming Home and wonderful communication with the owners made our stay at the Weller House memorable for my daughters and me. Very safe neighborhood and many fun historical places to go, food options were plenty as well. We loved the home and I plan to bring my husband back next time. He's looking forward to The NRA Museum at the Bass Pro Shop. Sorry he review is so late, I completely forgot I hadn't posted one. Thank you for a memorable stay and sharing this wonderful home with us and others. Kathy

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was in the house. Home was very inviting. Only suggestion I would have is a king size bed, because that is what most of us old married people use. Would stay there again. Note: loved the big tree in the back yard. Larry Cook

Adorable house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Weller House for 4 days and absolutely loved it. It is very quaint and well equipped. We have family that live in Springfield and the backyard was a super place to be and allow the kids to run around the yard for their short visits. Beds were comfy, kitchen was good and the house was quiet. The location was convenient for us, too. We had a problem with the WIFI and John had it fixed quickly along with a couple other small issues. Great response and great demeanor while dealing with 3 women!

Everyone raved about the house and we would definitely stay again should the opportunity arise!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying in the Weller House. I grew up in Springfield, and I often return for visits. I previously stayed with friends or in hotels, but having a one-year-old daughter made me want our own space. It was perfect for us.

The house is small, but it doesn't feel cramped. The historic features are neat, but the modern updates were appreciated, too. The backyard was perfect to have a few friends over to visit on the patio, and I loved having morning coffee out there, too! The master bedroom was well-appointed, nice linens, comfy mattress. The bathroom is adorable, too.

The location is awesome! Close to the university and downtown, walking distance to a few places... I can't imagine staying anywhere else next time I'm in Springfield. John was great to work with, very quick to reply to my emails. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon such a great place!
