Nauvoo house description

See through walls of windows panoramic views of the mighty Mississippi River as it bends around the historic city of Nauvoo, Illinois. Enjoy watching barges and river boats navigate the wide arc of the Mississippi River - while native birds glide above. 'Eagle Watchers' marvel, even from their pillows, as Eagles soar and alight in trees just outside the windows! The NauView Vacation House offers the comforts of home, in the relaxing serenity of a mountain-like cabin with views of a lake-side inn.

For those drawn to the area by the city of Nauvoo, there are No Other rentable accommodations with such a view of 'The City Beautiful'! Guests are fascinated that The Nauvoo Temple, Redbrick Store, Nauvoo House, and the Homestead, are in view, just across the river. Reflect upon the wintry exodus of thousands who fled Nauvoo (1846) across the frozen Mississippi River to Montrose. From Montrose the historic Mormon Trail began!

For more information and pictures see owners' website below.

Experience the peace the Mississippi River can bring. The NauView House is an oasis for couples as well as families... an ideal cabin retreat for any inspired by spectacular views.

                            This was a great place to stay. From the beginning until the end of our stay it was very easy to communicate with the owner. The house was in a very quiet are, which is exactly what we were looking for. The view is stunning and better than described. The house was clean and very well equipped. It felt like we were at home and I would definitely stay there again if we go to the area.

                            My brother, sister and I had a great time visiting family and friends in the Iowa and Illinois area. We stayed at the beautiful NauView house for a week. The house is so clean, comfortable and quite. It was so nice setting on the deck in the early mornings listening to the birds sing. I will stay again on my next trip. Thanks Lois and David

                            House was fully stocked with everything you would need, view was outstanding, very clean and decorated, we liked it so much that normally we plan a trip and then look for accomodations, but whenever we return to this area again our trip will be based upon availability of of this rental then we will pricesplan our trip around that time. If you plan on doing any cooking make sure you visit the local Meat Market and try their breaded tenderloins and other fine selections.

                            We had an excellent time at the Nauview House. The home was just as it was described. The house was very clean & the towels in the bathrooms were very big & fluffy. The house was very beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our time in Old Nauvoo. We took the informative Wagon Ride. We also went to the park in Quincy, IL & saw the flood. And said a prayer for the flood victims. We loved the old homes in Quincy. We went on to Hannibal & went to Lovers Leap. And was disappointed that the trolley ride there was not going. This was on a Sunday. It was running again on Mon. We would recommend this property to everyone we know. And would like to maybe return again sometime when the weather is a little warmer; so we can enjoy the deck in the sunshine. And perhaps spot a few more Eagles. We did spot 2.

                            Home is in excellent condition with all of the amenities needed plus more! Views from the house are awesome - even saw an Eagle! Centrally located to a lot of sites within less than two hours.

                            My wife, 3 boys under 12 and I stayed at the NauView House for 5 nights while our oldest son attended a youth conference across the river in Nauvoo. The house was everything that was advertised and more. The view of the Mississippi and the Nauvoo Temple were stellar. Waking up and opening my eyes on the sunrise, temple and river was absolutely incredible. The kids loved the foosball table and games in the play room. We played out on the lawn with some of the yard games that were there as well. The drive to Nauvoo along both the east and west banks of the Mississippi was about 40 minutes but the time was enjoyable as the scenery was fantastic. The owners were fantastic to interact with and provided excellent directions and information package. Key was received promptly. I would highly recommend the NauView House to anyone wanting to spend time in the Nauvoo area.

                            We had a wonderful weekend at your home.. Thanks so much for sharing. I've always been drawn to the river, so it was wonderful to see the views from the home. We loved driving around roads around the river. The cardinal, bluejays and woodpeckers were abundant out our windows, though I did not see a feeder; there must have been natural food for them somewhere. Keokuk and Ft Madison are close if you want to get a bite to eat or shop and of course Navoo, IL is just across the river. Can wait to go there in the summer time. Chris Park

                            Wonderful, wonderful home. We enjoyed full autumn color at tree top level. The entire home has views and the large wrap-a-round porch was a wonderful spot to enjoy early morning coffee. Lois, the owner, more than helped us out as my husband was hospitalized during our stay. Her encouragement certainly helped as we were pretty far from home. We stayed at the house to eat and recoup. We did visit Carthage, Keokuk, Fort Madison and Nauvoo at the start of out trip. Lois, thank you very much. We recommend your beautiful home and hope to return soon. LW Nov 2011

                            My daughter and I have stayed at the Nauview house on several occasions and we just love it! The wrap around porch is great and the house is cozy and kid friendly. We have family in the area and have everyone come see us. We can cook on the grill or make a great meal in the kitchen. We have even baked cookies! The beds are great and I have even dozed off for a nap in the comfy chair in the living room.
