About

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. This turn-of-the-century home was built by Cecil J. Baxter whose family had come to Nauvoo with the Icarian movement in 1855. The Baxters planted vineyards and opened their winery, originally living in an old Mormon home until they built the two-story brick home which stands today on the same site. The basement walls display a number of stones salvaged from the original Nauvoo Temple just a few blocks away. Today, the old 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, still owned and operated by descendants of the founders.

Only Place to Stay in Nauvoo!!

5 on July 28, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed there and will never stay anywhere else while in Nauvoo!!! We love the log cabins and have such a great time there!!!


Romantic, historical, beautiful

4.2 on March 10, 2012

We had an enjoyable stay in the Ellen's Orchard room in March,2012. We had the entire home to ourselves. The downstairs is filled with beautiful antiques and a small nook of books and DVD's to enjoy. The kitchen was left open for us to use. We enjoyed the jetted bath and didn't mind it being down the hall since it was very large with plenty of hot water. The bedroom has a unique, pretty chandelier. For breakfast we were served a hot frittata, zucchini bread with a fresh fruit tray in the formal dining room. A few details could be added to the room to make it more convenient such as an alarm clock, a comforter in addition to the bed spread and bathrobes. However, for the price, it is nice. It makes for a lovely, romantic getaway with a good meal. It is off the beaten path but still convenient to the historical homes and temple. We have stayed in Nauvoo many times and recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
