Family trip to Nauvoo

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a 4 night stay in Nauvoo with my wife, daughter and 3 grandkids ages 22 months, 3 and 5. It was a great place to stay, close to all the sites in Nauvoo, large enough for all six of us and good air conditioning, which was important because we were there during a record setting heat wave at the end of May.

The house had everything we needed for our stay, the only complaint was the kitchen knives could have been sharper. The wood work in the house and hardware on the doors are like my grandma's house, so calling it grandma's cottage was a good fit for me.

Fun little place to stay right in Nauvoo

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute little home right in Nauvoo. It is close to a small general store, bakery, and fun gift shops on the Main street in town. Close to the Nauvoo temple and not far from all the sites that you are going to love to see. Pots and pans, blender, general kitchen stuff is included. The couch that made out to a bed was ok, my daughter and I slept on in so the Grandmas with us could have the comfy beds. We had a little issue due to the manager that is in town had just barely switched. As soon as we notified them of the issue it was taken care of. We thought it could use a little more spare bedding (a few of the grandmas were cool in our April visit, and we filled all the beds and the 2 couch beds.) It was a fun place to see church history and make fun memories. Close enough to the sites to feel like we could run back to the house for lunch, but our time there was so short that we took it with us to the sites to save time. We would have liked a toaster and maybe a little more in the kitchen. As far as food goes there is a salt canister and a pepper shaker. Mentioned to the new local manager that maybe no stick spray, press and seal or tinfoil at least would be nice. We bought a lot of frozen, pre-made things in Keokuk (about 20 min away) and then warmed them in the microwave or oven.

Nauvoo is an historic town established by the Mormons in 1839. It grew to be the largest town in Illinois, along with Chicago, with a population of 15,000 - 20,000 people. After the martyrdom of the founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith, in 1844, Brigham Young led the Saints from Nauvoo to the Great Salt Lake over the Mormon Trail. Only about 1100 people remained in Nauvoo after the exodus of the Latter-day Saints. In the 1960's a descendant of one of the Nauvoo pioneers purchased his ancestor's home and began restoration. Nauvoo Restoration Inc. was established and since then over thirty historic homes and businesses have been restored or reconstructed, and are available for free tours. The Nauvoo Pageant is held every summer with thousands of visitors to the city to watch the performance of song and dance relating the Mormon history in Nauvoo. In addition, the Nauvoo Temple was restored in 2002, and is modeled after the original temple which was destroyed by arson in the late 1840's, and later by tornado in the 1850's. Visitors to Nauvoo enjoy the free tours and entertainment, where there is fun and education for the entire family! It is an extra treat to 'make your home away from home in Nauvoo!
