This was one of our favorite things about Nauvoo! It is a cute little home with all the amenities. Nancy is really good about getting back to you with any concerns that you have. We would gladly stay here again!

Thanksgiving vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to enjoy a family get away. We have six kids under the age of 14 and this house accommodated us perfectly. The master bed is so comfortable and the bedding extremely beautiful for that time period. The kids loved asking questions about all the antiques. Nancy was very prompt in answering our questions and even sending stuff back to us that we accidentally forgot. We hope to return again next year.

Fabulous re-finished pioneer home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfy, with great hosts. Nancy & Lon we’re very helpful and good communicators during our stay. The home was perfect. Be aware WiFi is contingent on signal quality reaching the host home, which can be very spotty.

We LOVED staying here. Super comfortable beds, old home that is fully updated, minutes to old nauvoo and even chocolate chip cookies on our front porch! Highly recommend this property!
