With a degree in Travel Industry Management focusing on Hospitality and my love for travel, I wanted to create a unique and comfortable place for people to stay while visiting my hometown. I have been traveling and using VRBO since I was 16 when I stayed in my first vacation rental by owner in Canada and I look forward to a wonderful journey of meeting so many new 'traveler friends' with my own vacation rental here in the heart of Springfield, MO.
Debra Baxter purchased this house in 2014
I chose this property because I knew it would the perfect cozy cottage and the location can't be beat. It is close to everything Springfield has to offer and only 45 minutes to Branson, MO. I have spent most of my life traveling with family thru VRBO and when I decided to start on this venture, I wanted to create a special place in my home town that I knew my guests would truly enjoy and want to return to.
You'll love the quiet of this peaceful cottage location. I found it to be the perfect getaway place right in the heart of the city. You're sure to love it as soon as you walk in the door, just as I did!
Our stay was during Valentine's Day. The owner had purchased a bottle of wine and chocolates for us and decorated the dining room table. It was a very thoughtful gesture and was appreciated. Pros: Quiet, nice clean linens, comfortable beds, updates thru out the house, plenty of supplies, with the exception of no bath soap for the shower. Clean bathroom. Nice TV,
Good heating and air unit. Fenced yard
Cons: some of the house needed a little more TLC in the cleaning Dept., dusting, frig wiped out. Kitchen counter wiped off. Also the lawn needed to be mowed or leaves raked, if you bring your pet. Our 2 small schnauzers brought quite a few leaves in the house, which got caught in their hair. We ran the sweeper a couple of times. We did have a pleasant stay and will recommend the property to others The owner was very nice when I visited with her on the phone.
home worked well for my visit
Well appointed and well maintained. Lovely oasis in the city of Springfield. Regret that we were only passing through as we would have liked to have been able to stay longer. Very comfortable beds and real coffee.
What a wonderful home away from home. The house was very clean. The beds were heavenly. The supplies were more than enough. Our stay was perfect. I would highly recommend this property to everyone. This home truly felt like home. Thank you, Debra for a truly wonderful stay. We will be back!!!
My husband and I enjoyed another great stay at your comfortable home. We really enjoy all the extra touches... Kourig coffee maker, basket with some goodies, all the comforts of home. Thank you!
Staying at 'The Gathering Place' was a great get-away. The property is the most clean and comfortable, pet-friendly or otherwise, place I've stayed. My dog loved the backyard and was very 'settled and relaxed' in the house, which is saying a lot. She's sometimes very apprehensive when she is in a different place. The true test came when she had to stay in her kennel when we went out to dinner. Upon returning, she acted just like she does at home, which was very pleasant! As for 'people' comfort', it checked all the boxes there, too! The Keurig coffee really hit the spot. The property has easy access from major roads and was close to downtown where there is a great hidden gem of a restaurant called Cafe Cusco. It's Peruvian fare allows for an adventure with another culture. Billy and Debra were very great to work with in setting up the stay. Thank You! I am looking forward to my next trip to Springfield and hope I will be able to stay here again. I would recommend staying at this property without any hesitation, unless it was when I wanted to stay there!!!
