The Purple Awning House is the perfect place to stay in Springfield. Whether you are traveling solo or as part of a group, the apartment's spacious bedrooms, comfortable couch and a large inflatable bed (if needed) ensures everyone will have a good night's rest.

This is a main floor apartment with a separate entrance from the upstairs apartment. There is no shared space or ventilation.

The space
The living room and dining room are both spacious and comfortable; with the large windows providing a view of scenic Lincoln Park. The kitchen offers all the tools necessary for preparing a romantic dinner for two, grilling burgers and hot dogs out back or simply relaxing under the dogwood tree with a fresh cup of coffee and the morning newspaper. The full bath has all the necessary linens and other must-haves, including a blow dryer.

Other amenities include TV, DVD player (TV is a smart TV), washer/dryer, WiFi, ROKU, an outdoor seating area, access to a gas grill and free parking.

We recognize that pets are family too and are open to guests with pets. We simply ask that you CLEAR IT WITH US FIRST, that they be kenneled when alone, KEPT OFF THE FURNITURE & BEDS and are picked up after. Other guests are allergic to pets and we have had to replace furniture due to irresponsible pet owners. The park across the street is a perfect place to exercise your dog.

We are two fun-loving people that work hard and try to bloom where we have been planted. A few of Jen's favorite past-times include collecting art, enjoying cold beer, eating brussel sprouts, listening to country music and feeling sand between her toes. Bill enjoys keeping bees, dogs, riding motorcycles, smoking various meat products and hoarding fishing equipment. We both enjoy impromptu road trips and love to get off the beaten path. The joy of travel is seeing new things, meeting new people and soaking up the local flavors. We recognize the effort that goes into planning a trip and work hard to make your stay both effortless and enjoyable. We both have extensive knowledge regarding the local sites and are more than willing to serve as a resource for your stay in Springfield. If you need anything, just ask.
