The Kraus Family

The historic Hotel Nauvoo inn and restaurant, operated for four generations by the Kraus family, houses artfully appointed guest rooms in the style of the circa 1841 building without sparing any modern convenience. This famous building dates back to the Mormon period of Nauvoo history, built in part by J. J. Brendt, a Latter Day Saint, and completed by Adam Swartz, a German immigrant.

Historic Hotel Nauvoo is located in the heart of Nauvoo's attractions. We are only one block from Nauvoo's Temple Square in an ideal location amidst the quaint Nauvoo shops that will allow you to spend time enjoying the simpler things in life. Tour the more than forty recreated historic sites and wander down to the Nauvoo Historical Society Weld House Museum for an overview of area history.

Overnight room guests receive a 25% breakfast discount at our Grandpa John's Cafe (Temporarily closed due to COVID-19 Virus).

For nature lovers and the fitness inclined, make sure to visit the Nauvoo State Park, the Mississippi River, Deer Run Golf Course in Hamilton and see the eagles fishing at the Keokuk Dam. Families will enjoy visits to our many historic churches, carriage rides through Historic Nauvoo and horseback riding for the novice and experienced.
