About Bernie Carver
Although we both have lived in other parts of the world for extended periods, we have deep roots in Springfield. We recently left for Massachusetts to be close to children and grandchildren. We hope others will enjoy being at Purple Awning House as much as we do.
Bernie Carver purchased this house in 1988
Why Bernie Carver chose Springfield
Sally purchased the house as a single mom thinking that it would be a good place to raise her two children. Her strategy worked because they both became wonderful, successful adults. We have our many fond memories of our old house and love the neighborhood.
What makes this house unique
Purple Awning House combines the advantages of being in a city and open space. Lincoln Park is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors, yet you can get grocery stores and restaurants with a short walk.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you both for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful stay, and most definitely would want to stay there again when we return to Springfield. The Lincoln museum was spectacular and I need to return to catch all of what I did not have time to see. Doug was great at getting us in and seeing us off. I think our dog will miss the place most of all. She was spoiled by numerous walks at the beautiful park across the street. All in all, we had a great time, just too short. hopefully a longer stay next time. Thank You again for your hospitality!!
