Just up Parley Street from the Midwest's largest collection of restored historic preservation sites, nestled behind a canopy of 145-year-old trees, sits an unexpected historic treasure, the Nauvoo Grand historic bed and breakfast in Nauvoo, IL. Please call today and make your reservation to enjoy the best of Nauvoo in an intimate historic setting surrounded by idyllic orchards and vineyards!
This turn-of-the-century home was built in 1904 by Cecil J. Baxter whose family had come to Nauvoo with the Icarian movement in 1855. The Baxter home was built over an old Mormon homestead that was originally on the site.
Today, the Baxter home has been transformed by Cassie and Kent Barrett into luxury accommodations, offering the grace and intimacy of Victorian times. Perched on a gentle rise, the Nauvoo Grand is still surrounded by the Baxter family vineyards and sits directly across the street from Illinois' oldest winery, owned and operated by fifth generation of the Baxter family, Brenda & Kelly Logan.
