About Debra Baxter

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

Why Debra Baxter chose Doling

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

The Gathering Place felt like home!

  • 4 of 5

Debra and Billy couldn't have been nicer. The Gathering Place was stocked with little extras, i.e., k-cup coffee/tea bar, extra toiletries and had an ambiance that made you feel right at home. On top of that, a special birthday present had been left for 1 of us. Debra also made sure to send by 2 cats and a squirrel for our Cockapoo Indy's enjoyment. He loved playing with his tennis balls in the fenced-in backyard. We had a slight problem with the tv and Debra was over in less than 45 minutes to fix it. Most caring

VRBO owners we've ever experienced in 6 year's of these rentals. 😁 Would have given it 5 stars if there had been a king bed in the master but probably would not fit. We knew upon renting there wasn't a King so that's on us.

Cute, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to all the great reviews of this home and location we decided to book this house while visiting our daughter at MSU. All of the pictures of the house are accurate representation of house. The house was extremely clean and everything was in working order. Enjoyed the way the backyard felt so private. Would stay here again - so much better than a hotel room if you have more than a one night stay.
