"Nauvoo" understandably translates as "Beautiful." It is a renown place of fascinating history, presented through free and family-centered activities. We hope you plan on spending some quiet down-time in the cottage just to draw upon the peaceful persuasion of the place being on the wide, blue river. We have decorated our cottage as we have decorated our previous homes, with a Scandinavian touch. We hope you enjoy the heart-warming, cheerful, and fresh charm of the cottage. Valkommen!

De ruimte
We have plenty of woodland property for you to explore and make all the noise you want, and no other party will hear or notice. We consider our porch our first room, as it has an open view of the wide river right in front of you and plenty of seating. We also have a picnic table there with a gas barbeque. Our kitchen table sits only 6 or 7, but the picnic table is enough for our given guest count. The cottage is compact but open, and fine for families who wish to spend their days sight-seeing the area and come home to it's cozy comfort.
We regret our dock went down river some years ago and since then there is no beach left. However, across the street and kitty corner is a relaxing walk along the river on the mowed green grass of the Hammas Scenic Turn-out. You can see why the slips of shore are often called by visitors as "shell shore." The Nauvoo/Hamilton area is renown for its geodes and guests sometimes come just to seek them in streambeds and in the river. We have many around the yard that we have found.

Toegang voor gasten
Our house is located on a half hill with more of the river bluff behind us. We have plenty of room for parking. Our driveway is challenging for RV's at the present and we counsel you to bow out of that challenge.
Entrance to the front door is a key number punch and we will contact you a couple days ahead of your arrival for the code. We welcome you, and preferably, to contact us 2 to 7 days ahead of time when you have understandable anxiety knocking on your head while planning the departure for your journey.
Your family is welcome to the full use of the house. We have two sheds that are not part of your dream package. The old red shed was once a screen porch by the former owners (and curious peekers [only] in it's doorway can see that it then became a chicken coop and is now more of a habitat for woodland critters among our lumber piles, lawn supplies and sundry items). The view of it from the kitchen sink window is not pleasing, but the contemplation of the space does present promising possibilities.
The Wi-Fi password is located on the refrigerator. We have Roku streaming tv with Sling Blade. We hope you find the books, games, keyboard, and other distractions we offer in the home. There are private places, as well as an overall open feeling with a vaulted ceiling and loft. The windows overlook the river and the cottage interior colors seem to bring the outside in.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
We have the basics of ketchup, mustard, relish, and dressings in the refrigerator, and seasonings and oils in the cupboard next to the stove. There is a baking center with basics, such as baking soda, baking powder, sugars, and flours. Other unopened foodstuffs left in the cupboards are to be considered gifts from other guests left behind for you. There is cupboard space left for your own groceries.
We are offering a whole house for the price of two hotel rooms as a considerate gift to families. We wish to clarify the host's pricing option, that the price stated on the site is for a party of 6 and $15 for each guest up to 9.
We are thrifty ourselves and feel this is still a very good price for our space. I have heard "This is the most comfortable I have ever been in Nauvoo!" and we want you to be comfortable on your visit to Nauvoo. Larger parties should consider that in our whole house there is only one, 1, uno bathroom. Either conclude that you want/need to stay in another of the honestly charming places in Nauvoo with 2 bathrooms or that you are close family.
Pets are allowed. Please consider that other guests may have an allergy and would like to know how recently animals have stayed. Please contact us at the time of your reservation. Fees are $10 per night for one pet, or $15 for two (and, sorry, a $5 penalty if you fail to notify us and we discern it). If there is more cleaning needed, we may resolve the fee afterwards, calculating the cleaning woman's fee. Please clean any mud or worse on carpets promptly and visible fur on furniture before leaving. Consider bringing a yard screw and tether if your dog roams.
The rest here is only counsel for parties of 7 to 9 guests, so pass on reading if you have less. Most inquiring guests consider that they are close family or friends and figure they will be spending much or most of the day in Nauvoo seeing the sites. We counsel that you NOT give the call to go to the bathroom before you leave for the day, but rather wait and park at the public parking with the large public restrooms on the main street of Mulholland where the shops are, or at the Visitor's Center, Family Living Center, or near the other historical shops and homes. Rather give the call to use the restroom right BEFORE you return home. And consider taking morning or evening shifts for showers. It is common for family and friends upon hearing you are visiting Nauvoo to want to join in the fun. We welcome them. Please remember the Honor System during your stay. Airbnb is strict on only insuring guests to only the agreed number, and 9 persons is the house limit, and we rely on the Airbnb foundation.

Locatie

Nauvoo, Illinois, Verenigde Staten

We are located adjacent to a scenic turn-out that offers a nice stroll along the river and picnic tables and invite you to discover "Shell Shore." This portion of the river is located above the only damn on the Mississippi River, and is the widest part of the river, even given the name of "Cooper Lake." You can watch long barges traveling up and down the river in the spring and summer and hear the distant sounds of the coal shoot and railroad across the river. In the fall and winter there are bald eagles who fish in the open area of the damn beside the next town downriver and many can be seen while taking a walk outside the cottage. There is so much to see in Historical Nauvoo, and the downtime in the cottage is just the right ending of a busy day and a cheerful and relaxing way to start a new morning. See the moon over the river in the middle of the night and the shining blue of the river when you sit up in bed in the morning. Again, Valkommen!

This picture shows me refinishing an antique wagon bench that is now on the front porch of our Nauvoo cottage overlooking the Mississippi River in our front yard. I am a do-it-yourself-er and work part-time at Orchard Supply Hardware - OSH. I am a former school teacher and now substitute for our school district here in Thousand Oaks. I followed our four sons into the school system, rather than make the heart-break of letting go. Now my husband and I, Larry, are empty nesters and now call our German Shepherd Scout our son, who comes everyday when we call.
