About the property

The Lafayette Mansion is perched atop a beautiful little hill in Willard MO, just 10 min Northwest of Springfield. The peaceful location is a perfect place to get away from all your troubles but conveniently located minutes away from the airport, shopping malls, hospitals and everything Springfield MO has to offer. Spanning over 13,000 square feet, this magnificent mansion has room for everyone and it’s a perfect place for family reunions, Ladies escape, Men’s retreat or even business trips. The grand entryway with a sweeping staircase draws you into a voluminous layout with three story windows with a breathtaking view of the natural spring creek. The kitchen is made for entertaining with 2 sinks, 2 stoves and 2 dishwashers to make clean up a breeze! The main level has a 2 story great room, a dining area with a gas fireplace, a hearth room with a flat screen TV, an office and 2 half baths. The bedrooms are all located on the second level and are all private suites. There is also a Game room with a Wii system for hours of fun. The divine master suite has a walk thru shower, Jacuzzi tub and a terrace to enjoy your morning coffee!

The lower level is where the fun begins!! It starts with a large living room with a walk out deck. You then walk back to a second full kitchen and bathroom. On one side of the kitchen is a wonderful movie room, perfect for the games and movies. Next to the Movie room is a billiards room with a gorgeous gas fireplace. There’s a kids bunk room that sleeps 6 and and additional bedroom on the lower level.

There is so much to do here you could stay hidden away from all your troubles for a week but if you choose to go out and have fun there is lots of running room outside.

Come and have fun or just relax with a movie marathon. We look forward to making your stay an exquisite time you will want to return to many times in the future.

About Brent & Stacie Johnson

We have been married for 21 years. We have 3 sons. We are a Sonic Drive In Franchisee and have been in the Sonic business for 25 years. Brent loves to golf and I love to remodel homes.

Brent & Stacie Johnson purchased this house in 2015

Why Brent & Stacie Johnson chose Willard

We purchased this home at an auction with the intent of flipping it. While remodeling, we lived in the home for a year and then put it on the market. While it was on the market, we didn't get much interest and we had already purchased another home and moved. We have used VRBO in the past for our personal travel and we decided to see if our home would be a place where others would enjoy.

What makes this house unique

With 13,000 square feet, there is room for families and friends to enjoy. There are 5 private suites, a study with sofa bed and a bunk room that will sleep 8. A great place for the family to all be together.

Many Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful home was wonderful. This house is as wonderful as the pictures. We were in town for a family reunion there was room for all. We had over 30 people in one day lots of room for all we even played a little basketball. Adults and kids all had a great time. We will rent this again if we are back in town.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. We had a group of 13 for a family reunion. It is very open with a ton of space and light. Bottom floor is a walk-out basement to a huge deck. The bunk room has no windows and was great to sleep in with it being dark. We used the media room a lot. The internet could have been a little better, but that may just be the location. Even though it's listed as a 6-bedroom it could be considered 8 (5 top floor, bunk room,additional bedroom in basement and the study). Beds were comfortable. Main master had it's own washer & dryer, wine frig and fireplace. The kitchen is huge with 2 ovens, two stoves, 2 islands & 2 dishwashers in addition to a huge TV. The dishwashers worked okay, although it may have been the dishes themselves that didn't seem to clean well. We had a card game tournament and the additional round tables throughout were perfect. Owner's communication was excellent. The mobile app worked well. We traveled to Fantastic Caverns, kayaking at Lake Springfield Boathouse and Lambert's Cafe. All were great! We had planned to hike but decided to just relax the last day. A few traveled 1 hour to Branson for a show. I highly recommend this home and it's owners. Thank you for sharing your home.

Great reunion space for 5 families

  • 5 of 5

This home worked wonderfully for our group. We had so much space we never needed to leave (or wait in line for a bathroom!).

Amazing house, amazing space

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion at this house last week. What a beautiful spacious home. Each couple had a room with their own bathroom which was very convenient . The cousins loved having a bunk room to share. It was so nice to have a place downstairs for the children to play while the adults could be on the main level relaxing, playing games and have conversation without feeling like the children were right under our feet. The movie theater room and concession stand was a big hit. We enjoyed some fun water games outside on the field and in the big driveway. We also had some games for the kids to play that we set up in the large garage. Stacie was wonderful work with always so responsive to all of our questions. We will defiantly be booking this house again.

Families are Forever❤️

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place for a family gathering! We had an absolute blast here and are so blessed that we found a place where our whole family could gather. Stacie is the bomb and a great host❤️ Thank You so much for everything. This house has everything you could dream of. The big hit was the concession stand and all the bedrooms with their private baths. We also cooked several meals here and had everything we needed. Book this place, you won’t be sorry!

When using GPS for this home, please use Springfield as the city instead of Willard, as GPS for Willard will take you to the wrong part of Farm Road 94. Farm Road 94 does not run all the way through. So if you use Willard for the GPS then you are on the west side of Farm Road 94.
