About Us

Take a Step Back in Time

Considered to be the best B&B of Nauvoo, enjoy the history of a grand country inn with modern and gracious appointments, special attention to furniture and period decor. A one and half acre estate, the grounds are adorned with giant shade trees as well as an herb garden and bright flowers. With a place to sit on the home's charming wrap around porch and outside seating, you can enjoy the stillness of the air and soft echoes of the past. Situated only two blocks from historic Nauvoo's main street and across the street from where the Nauvoo and British Pageants are held, the Willard Richards Inn is a destination in itself.
