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

I cannot tell you how fun our trip was to Nauvoo and a HUGE part of that was because of the Willard Richards Inn. Tom and Janette were extremely helpful and kind. They were able to accommodate to my large family by putting an air mattress on the floor for my kids. The house is extremely clean and beautiful. The... More

Had the pleasure of staying at this B&B, not knowing much about it beforehand. If you are going for the historic value AND the best B&B experience possible, you will LOVE this venue!! Excellent service (like, maybe the best I've ever experienced at a B&B), value (we got the 3rd night free), and the tour they offered of the home... More

The house is beautiful and down near all the Nauvoo sites. The Inn keepers Heather & Tom knew a lot of history and spent time with us answering questions. They took us on a tour of the Willard Richards Inn as well! Some amazing history had taken place there! The ONLY thing that wasn't perfect was the breakfast. It's exactly... More

Staying in Willard Richards Inn means not just visiting historic Nauvoo; but actually BEING in historic Nauvoo. It is in a very historical house, but with modern amenities, including wifi. The Inn and its accommodations are very beautiful, elegant, clean and comfortable. The location makes it very convenient to visit the various Nauvoo places of interest. My wife and I... More

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.
