Nauvoo Mansion On the Hill-You Get the Whole House:

Nauvoo Mansion On the Hill is one of the nicest properties any where, but we feel it is by far the nicest in all of the Nauvoo Area. This is a rare oportunity to bring you whole family on a vacation of a life time. The house will sleep 14 and one infant in a crib. The house is located on 2 acres overlooking the Mississippi River. 14 minutes to the nauvoo temple, 40 minutes to Carthage, 2 hours to Springfield Illinois(Abraham Lincoln lived in this area for over 30 years, his home and furnishings are still awaiting you. The new Presidential Lincoln Library is an absolute must.) Nauvoo has been restored to it's orginal 1830's era, take a free horse drawn wagon ride to see all the old homes, the printing press, the black smith shop where they will make you a free prairie diamond ring, the old brick kiln where you will see them make brick, and they will give you one made right from the kiln.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and in an incredible location. It is spacious and very clean and comfortable. We are so grateful to the owners for allowing our family to experience Nauvoo in a way that would not have been possible otherwise. The sunsets and the fireflies were our favorites.

Great location, lots of room, affordable

  • 4 of 5

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc.? Yes. There are six bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, two living rooms, two dining rooms, 3-car garage, and a huge partially finished basement. The home faces the Mississippi River (great view). Unfortunately it rained each day during our stay, and while the (outdated) tube TVs have Roku with Netflix, there was no over-the-air TV.

Was the property clean and well-maintained? It was acceptable, but a house of this size requires a lot of labor to clean and maintain well. The bedrooms and bathrooms were cleaned well. There is some black mold in one of the second floor bedroom closets. The bucket underneath indicates that the owners are aware of the issue, but it must be dealt with correctly and immediately to eliminate a larger problem. While it is important to address the mold, it is also in a corner of a walk-in closet and does not interfere with living space. The exterior of the home needs some TLC, mostly as a result of using wood trim instead of PVC. Overall, however, it is a wonderful and large home for a family get-together.

Did the owner provide good customer service? It was acceptable, but effort was required to book the home. It would help if inquiries were responded to faster. The owner did a great job of providing information about the home and the area.

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives? Absolutely without hesitation. It is a great place to gather with family. We hope to come back again, and we will definitely refer others to stay at this home and visit Nauvoo. There were fourteen of us (seven adults, seven children), and we had plenty of room to spread out. The layout of the home is a good mix of open space and private space. The value is incredible.

What activities, attractions, and restaurants did you like or dislike near by? Nauvoo is a great place to visit with family. The historical LDS buildings and activities are free and delightful for all ages, providing entertainment for at least one full day. There is a Hy-Vee and Wal-Mart in Keokuk (five miles away) for groceries, and a variety of places to eat.
