About Cheryl Day

Cheryl has lived in Springfield for several years and is a nurse at Mercy Hospital here in town. Originally from Iowa, Cheryl moved to Missouri in 1983 and lived in the Ozark countryside until 2006 when she moved to the 'city' to be closer to her grandkids.

Cheryl Day purchased this house in 2007

Why Cheryl Day chose Springfield

Cheryl purchased this property after renting it for a year and falling in love with it. Since she bought the home she has spent years on fixing it up to it's current loving condition. She also added a loft apartment that is very modern in the upstairs space, with a separate entrance.

What makes this house unique

This home was built in 1939 by a well known area builder named Carl Bissman who constructed many of the larger homes on Historic Walnut Street one block south. This year the original hardwood floors were refinished to bring back the shine and feel. The arched front door is a feature not seen on many homes, and also features an archway between the dining and living room. The whole house was recently updated with a new electrical system, high efficient HVAC and water heater, all new lighting, new appliances, and fresh warm paint colors throughout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was perfect for our week-long trip to Springfield! We are co-workers in town for a training course. This gave us some extra elbow room as well as a meeting spot for others in the training to study & hang out. Not to mention it was SOOO much more comfortable than a hotel.

Thank you for opening your home- it is lovely!

Clean, cute, great value , attention to detail evident

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, hardwood floors nicely framed artwork and dark wood furniture , very comfy beds with nice sheets, easy to get in with code, perfect location for Evangel university graduation, stocked with extras like shampoo, great value for the six of us to stay, and I would stay here again if I came to town for sure. Also George's restaurant with great $3 breakfasts is right next door. Highly recommend to others. Things that would have been helpful - a full length mirror and muffin pan for making breakfast.

Overall fantastic experience and very cozy!

Never got the address

  • 1 of 5

Booked my stay last minute while waiting for the birth of my new grandchild. 2 days before occupancy was due I wrote and asked her what time check in was. They were inducing my daughter the afternoon my rental time was starting and an early check in would work better for me. I waited 2 days and hearing nothing cancelled my reservation at 3:30 the day of, on our way to the hospital. 3 days later I get an email from her stating that it didnt look like I was staying there. Little hard to do that when you dont have an address or any other information to check in...still waiting for my refund..

My bank will be handling the next step.

Fyi beautiful 8 lb grand daughter

Comfortable Cottage

  • 3 of 5

Overall, had a good stay once I got into the house. The house was clean, welcoming, and located close enough to Missouri State campus. The reason for the less than stellar review is that I had a situation trying to get in the house the first night. I learned a lesson and thought I would share it here. Here's what took place. On 08/26/2016, I received a text that my reservation has been accepted and it provided a link to the rental. The information listed the procedures to get into the house and other pertinent information. Therefore, I did not feel the need to follow-up prior to my arrival. I ended up arriving very late to the rental, followed the procedures and could not get in the door. Needless to say I was extremely upset. I called and texted the contact, however, it was too late and did not get a response. Since it was late/early the next morning and I didn't know what else to do, I just slept in my car. About 7:30 am, I received a communication from the owner regarding the procedures to get in. Apparently, the entry procedures have changed and the owner did not know the old ones were out there. After this was straightened out, all was good. However, lesson learned. From now on, I will double check with the owner of any rental for correct entry procedures. I will not assume I have the correct ones. The owner gave me credit for that first night.

Owner's Response: You are always welcome back to our rental to stay! Your situation did show me a flaw in the automatic communication that I had forgotten was there. I have since changed the verbiage of the auto response communication about entry. I sincerely apologize for you're having to sleep in your car. I would have been very upset, too! This should never happen again.

Springfield, MO is a great place to live, or visit. There is so much going on here including events, festivals, theatre, parks, trails, shopping, and a quick drive to many rivers, lakes, and of course we're a 45 min drive to Branson MO with their many shows and attractions. Check out Bass Pro Shops, The Simon Mall, or many of the shops downtown or on Historic C-Street for shopping. The Ozark Greenway Trails give you many miles of bicycling, running, or walking opportunities and connect to many parks. Check out the Japanese Stroll Garden located near the Springfield Botanical Center. During Baseball Season head over to Hammons Field to watch a Springfield Cardinals minor league game. Next to that is Jordan Valley Park, and the Mediacom Ice Skate Center where you could watch a hockey game, or go skating yourself. Like to eat out? There a literally HUNDREDS of restaurants around Springfield from any food category that you could think of, and many of the best ones are downtown less than 2 miles away.
