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!

Very cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I stayed here twice as we travelled to and from Phoenix to visit my brother. The home itself was very clean and cozy and the neighborhood was quiet.

This is the first time we've ever rented a house while traveling and the whole experience was very easy. It was much better than staying in a hotel, especially when travelling with pets.

The owner was also very accommodating, answered all of my questions and quickly fixed my mistake when I initially booked the wrong date.

All in all, it was a very positive experience and I would recommend this home to anyone staying in the area.

Comfortable, cozy cottage near great food.

  • 4 of 5

This home is well furnished and decorated for our family of 4. Beds were so comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked well. The home is occupied in the attic space by the owner but the time we were there was quiet and restful.

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

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.
