Nice and quiet but close to all attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Nauvoo for a church history spring break outing with our kids. I was a bit nervous not knowing the area or what to expect. Our family was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our stay in this home. It is right on the Mississippi River so you can walk right out the back door and enjoy the view. When we ventured to town for the first time we thought it would be about a 15-20 minute drive but found it was only about 3-4 minutes to the visitor center. Very convenient and quiet home. It seems at first a little run down but actually quite nice once you get settled in. Our three kids stayed in the bedroom upstairs and had plenty of room. Great place to stay and would recommend for a family outing or a couples weekend retreat.

Lovely view, but unkempt and too much work

  • 1 of 5

My family and I take a little get-away after the holidays each year and chose this home by the river. The views were fantastic and the owner allowed us in a few hours early, both perks.

The home needs some upgrades - there were many issues with quality and the house needs a good, solid cleaning. The beds were uncomfortable and there was an outbreak of ladybugs during our stay - they were in our food and a nuisance.

Also, when I take a break and go on vacation I don't want to have to do laundry, dishes, etc. We rent homes often and are used to the typical cleaning, but doing dishes, putting away, doing laundry - I could have stayed home for that.

Very disappointed in this stay.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the constructive information found is this review. We look forward to using this review to better the future stays of our guests! Before checkout we do ask our guests to: start one load of laundry and switch it to the dryer, as well as make sure all dishes used are cleaned and put away. This helps accommodate the 3 PM check-in and 11 AM checkout times. We strive to help all our guests build lasting happy memories together during their stay. We will continue to improve the comfort of the Nauvoo Waterfront Home and the satisfaction of our guests.

Absolutely Dreamy

  • 5 of 5

It was so tranquil and peaceful. So close to Church History sites but yet removed for a peaceful time. Games, videos and toys were so helpful with the young kids. We had everything we needed. The owners even provided dish washer soap, laundry soap, etc. I wish we could've stayed LONGER! Plenty of room to sleep up to 10 people and very comfortable too.

Outstanding location, very close to historic Nauvoo and yet secluded to enjoy nature.

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful and quaint. The Mississippi is right out the back door and the sunsets are amazing. Great kitchen facilities and grill. The beds were comfortable. Plenty of room to enjoy a show, play games or put together a puzzle.

One of the bathrooms has a flush regulator on the toilet. This gets a little annoying as it does not have the force to flush ANYTHING that involves toilet tissue. The second bathroom does not have that restriction and functions well. For this reason and a minor cleanliness issue I give this home/experience a four.

The owner was fantastic and responsive. Comparing this location to a hotel at a comparable price, I would pick this place a thousand times over

Quaint home along the Mississippi river

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place. The home is quaint and sits just along the Mississippi river. The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous. We sat out on the deck each evening gazing at the sunset and watching the boats go by. We saw lots of wildlife. We visited the nearby historical sites during the day and enjoyed peaceful nights at the rental. Great place! Thanks!
