My husband and I stayed here for one night as we explored the state of Illinois. Jeanette and Tom welcomed us warmly and Tom gave us a fascinating tour of this historic home, pointing out special artifacts that fill it. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless. Although we were only there a short time, we were made... More

Staying at the Willard Richards Inn was the best decision for our stay in Nauvoo.It is in Old Nauvoo, (i.e.The Beautiful part). History in abundance and we were right in it! Stayed in the Nauvoo Room; very cosy with nice ensuite bathroom and a view of the temple. Loved finding our breakfast basket waiting outside our door every morning! Having... More

The Willard Richards Inn is rich with history. We really liked that it was close to the Nauvoo flats and we could ride their bikes to the different locations. The Simpsons were very hospitable. Tom showed us neat features about the house. Check out the wine cellar built from temple stone. The Anniversary Room has some updated bathroom fixtures with... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was perfect. We loved being able to stay in the middle of Old Nauvoo and not far from the Nauvoo temple (we could see it from our window). It was beautiful and the Tom and Jeanette were so welcoming and knowledgable. The breakfast basket was perfect and they had things for me... More

The comfortable B&B-style inn was a pleasant base as we explored Nauvoo and the surrounding area. It is right in the midst of Old Nauvoo and we walked from the inn almost everywhere. Tom and Jeanette were so pleasant and welcoming from the moment we arrived. They had tidbits of information about both the Willard Richards house and many of... More

our 3 nights at the inn were absolutely delightful. We brought bikes and biked each day. We walked (ascended) up the hill to the exquisite temple. Our host and hostess were wonderful. Thank you for the tour and discussion of the gospel in a sacred place and setting.

My family stayed here while in Nauvoo and we will definitely be staying here again in all future trips. The hosts are very nice and pleasant. They gave us a tour of the home. We were there at an off-peak time so we were the only guests there. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Nauvoo.

Our family vacation to Nauvoo was not only memorable, fun, relaxing and filled with the wonderful spirit of this special place, it was topped off with the wonderful history of these early saints by staying in the historic Willard Richards Inn. We were treated very well and favored with a personal tour of the home we were staying in with... More

Your trip to Nauvoo could not be fully experienced without a stay at the former home of Willard Richards. It's centrally located and it is complete with tour of home and expert and knowledgeable people about the the city. We enjoyed the Nauvoo room and appreciated the ambiance of the vintage home. Make sure you consider this house as a... More
