About Gordon Fidler

Gordon and Tammy are originally from the Peoria area, but have lived near Springfield since getting married in 1991. Gordon retired from a career in law enforcement in 2010, and in 2012 they bought their first rental property in Chatham. They have four children, three of whom were adopted and are still at home.

Gordon Fidler purchased this house in 2012

Why Gordon Fidler chose Springfield

This house was selected due to its close proximity to their residence, the quality of the school district, and the fact that it reminds them of their home growing up, and their grandparent's home. The layout of the house as well as the era both bring back great memories. For two years, the house had been unfurnished and rented out on an annual basis. In February of 2015 it was transitioned into a fully furnished home for rent by visitors to the area. It's not quite a bed and breakfast, but they still get to provide warm hospitality for their guests.

What makes this house unique

They love the peaceful feel when they walk into the house. There are times when they will take time to go to the house to sit and read, and Gordon has confessed he has taken a nap or two there as well. The kitchen is spacious, as are the bedrooms and living room. It's a comfortable place to relax.

Cozy and charming! My extended family really enjoyed their stay here.

  • 5 of 5

It was so easy dealing with Gordon. We had to update the arrival time and he was very flexible. The house was adorable and my family members loved how comfortable the beds were. I was a little concerned about the train tracks being close by but it did not bother them at all. I plan to reserve here again. Thanks Gordon and family!!

House is nicely decorated. Plenty of room for a group. The kitchen is spacious.

Just spent a girlfriend weekend at "Fiddler's on the Roof." We had a great time. The kitchen is spacious. Living room furniture is comfy. The location was great for us for shopping at the mall. Tammy was there to greet us when we arrived. She showed us the house and gave us tips for restaurants. I'm sure we will stay there again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and the house fit our needs very well. We found everything clean and well kept. We had lots of hot water for showers and when you have 5 ladies in the house, that is a must. I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I think this is the first time we've been complimented on our hot water, but we'll take it! Thanks for staying with us and come back again the next time the quilt show is in town!

Couldn't have been any better.

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 3 siblings and their mates. Beds included twins, queen and king. The living room, kitchen and dining area were good size and comfortable. Wifi and cable made it seem just like home. The owners were very accommodating when I had to change the dates within the allotted time frame. I would definitely stay there again.
