About John Horner

John and Pat spent several years in the restoration of main house, little house, and gardens. But the children are gone and we now have a lot of space to spare. John grew up in the home as did his mother, grandmother, and Gr Grandmother.

Why John Horner chose Springfield

This little house is owned by John and Pat Horner who are residents in the main house. John is a 5th generation owner/occupant of this historic home built by Dr. & Mrs. Walter Camp in 1886. The Little House was the servant's residence. John also has his consulting engineering business in the home.

What makes this cottage unique

We are a family friendly operation and prefer guests in the spirit of married couples and responsible single persons.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at "The Little House." The cottage is well cared for and the yard was beautiful. We had many activities to keep us busy during the day, so we did not mind the size of the cottage. We road the Frisco Highline Trail from Springfield to Bolivar and looked forward to returning each evening to the cottage. Although the cottage is compact, we were able to store our bikes overnight inside as well. We enjoyed our mini adventure and hope to return soon.

This was one of our favorite stays! We really enjoyed the bed, very soft and comfortable. The location was wonderful and was easy to get in and out of. We definitely will keep this on our return soon list!

What a cute, homey place! Not for the very tall or very large, but very comfortable and quiet. I loved it.

Couples getaway

  • 4 of 5

What cute little place. It was perfect for our visit to Springfield. I was able to attend my teacher conference at a near by hotel and my husband was able to relax. It was nice at the end of the day to have a quiet place to come home to. The owners had thought of everything and packed it all into the place.

A Little Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the comfortable and thoughtfully appointed Little House. As other reviewers have mentioned we were graciously greeted by the owners. John was very helpful in suggesting sites to see and places to eat. We were out most of the time, but when we returned from our days travels this was an ideal place to unwind.
