I am so glad that we found the Willard Richards Inn! It made all the difference for our Nauvoo experience. Being right there in the historic part of town gave us a sense of what it would have been like in Old Nauvoo. We had a large group with several teenagers, and the Kesters made us feel right at home.... More

I've stayed here a few times, and there is NOWHERE else like it. This property oozes with history and charm. Property is close to everything and located in the heart of Nauvoo. Great keepers who will give you an extra special tour of the home. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I finally got back to Nauvoo this fall, found this Inn on line and it could not have worked out better. The Kesters are excellent hosts, the attic room we had was just right for us and we were very close to the sites in old Nauvoo. When/if we get back to Nauvoo, we'll stay here.

Only complaint is that the check out time was a little early. The overall experience was historic and I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to anyone. The history lesson was amazing. It was fun to see all the people fall into their place in history, especially Willard Richards and Mr. Riendholt. If you are driving to Nauvoo make sure to... More

We found this on line and what a gem! We arrived late but the inn keeper had made arrangements with instructions and a basket of food. The beds were wonderful, the room was spacious and clean and it was like stepping back in time with all the decorations, i.e., pictures, fabrics, etc. It was so reasonable and every morning there...

We had a great time staying here--they were very nice to my wife, 5 month old son, and I. The home was lovely, breakfast was filling, and the tour of the home was wonderful. Great location too! And definitely, take the beach bikes for a spin around town, that's probably the best way to see Nauvoo. If you're picky about... More

We spent three nights in September and loved it. The owners were fantastic and made us feel at home. The room was very comfortable and we will absolutely stay here when we return to Nauvoo. Learning about the history of this home helped us enjoy the rest of Nauvoo and the surrounding area even more.

Really nice place. Quiet. The two rooms we stayed in both had in-suite bathrooms. Very historic. The inn-keepers give an optional tour of the premise and talk about the area and the home. They will take as much time with you as you like, and are great at reading what your interest level is, and tailoring the tour to your... More

This is such a quaint and sweet bed and breakfast, nestled in the historic district of Nauvoo. The house itself had so much history, which only added to the experience of staying in this area. The owners were very friendly, and their knowledge base of the area and history was excellent. The breakfast baskets were so simple, but very nice,... More

Very friendly owners. We stayed in the Reinbold (it was called I think). It had so much style, we just loved it. Room was absolutely clean. It has all you need there. There's so many sites, even the Inn itself is a Site - the owners are happy to give you a tour of it. price-performance ratio is absolutely fine.... More
