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.
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
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!
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.
The house was clean and well represented by pictures. The cable was out the days we were there though, as was the washing machine.
Six of us stayed in this lovely, centrally located home. We loved the place! It is a lovely, older home, nicely decorated, cozy, comfortable, clean, and perfect for all of us. Thank you, Johnny, for sharing your wonderful family home We will check again as we travel back through.
First I would like to compliment the owners. They were very accomadating with our early checkin. Entry is by electronic lock and couldn't have been more convenient. No hassle with keys or having to meet with someone to checkin or out. Now the house was perfect for my needs, 3 bedrooms. Living room had a nice flat screen TV, and the wifi was automatic and strong. Kitchen was functional, and amenities were great, plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies etc. I would stay here again.
This home was absolutely lovely and charming. A perfect home for my needs. Older home with wonderful decor. The owners were amazing, very polite, and quick to respond. I visit Springfield twice a year and I will definitely stay in this house again!
My family and I spent a week in Springfield, and had a great time at the Lively Cottage. You can be anywhere in about 15 minutes, and the owner is very kind and helpful.
