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.

Stepping back in time

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!

Fun place to stay while experiencing historic Nauvoo.

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and fit our family of 6 well. Great yard and convenient to historic sites. Nancy was very friendly and stayed in touch via text, which was nice. The house had some unique historic features which just added to the experience of trying to think about how the people in the 1800s lived.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This home has been wonderfully restored. It is cared for down to the finest detail. The antique furnishings are beautiful. The owners were so kind. They brought us fresh vegetables from their garden and warm cookies. We wish we could have stayed longer. It really had a country feel, but close to all the Nauvoo sites. It's easiest if you get groceries before you go to the house, but we didn't and it was fine to drive out of nauvoo to get them. All around a wonderful stay. I would highly recommend staying in this home.
