The SpaceWe 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 are located very near a scenic turn-out that offers a nice stroll along the river and picnic tables. 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, just outside the kitchen, and another picnic table is placed near the fire pit, with picnic products provided. Guest AccessThe Wi-Fi password is located on the television, and though we have internet access, we presently do not have television reception beyond free basics. Pardon for October. We hope you find books, games, music, and other distractions we offer in the home. The whole house is available for the use of your family. There are private places, as well as an overall open feeling with a vaulted ceiling and loft. The windows overlook the river and seem to bring the outside in. Our plan was to have the interior colors blend in with the blue water and also the surrounding natural foliage to expand the interior feeling of space. Interaction with GuestsPlease, feel free to text or call for any questions or concerns before or during your stay. We will get back to you as soon as we notice your message. We live in California, but have two local competent cleaning women and a couple handymen we can call upon to make your stay satisfactory and hopefully, ideal. Also, before you feel desperation, you may call airbnb to also try to contact us or they can answer anticipated questions. Getting AroundThe town of Nauvoo has a small grocery store at 1382 Mulholland Drive, with basics and most anything else visiting tourists would want. Nearby Hamilton to the south has more groceries at the Dollar General on Keokuk Street, at the eastern end of town. Hamilton and the town of Keokuk both have fast food stops. Larger Keokuk has both a Wal-Mart Grocery and an impressive HyVee grocery store, the latter with a wonderful salad bar and many choices for prepared foods. We highly recommend Angelini's Ristorante Italiano, for it's amazingly delicious and very healthy cuisine, that soon overshadows its short-on ambiance. If you are coming from the west, West Burlington has even more fast food stops and restaurants. There is a mom and pop restaurant called Grandpa John's in Nauvoo, as well as a couple of hotel restaurants. During the Nauvoo Pageant season, it is best to plan to eat prepared food outside of the town of Nauvoo . . . and consider saving and eating back at your nice, new home-away-from home. You might consider your plans and menu for your first two meals before you leave home. For your first breakfast, we do have a baking center (including an extra large flour container, such as for pancakes, in the bench seat), but maybe just bringing cereal, muffins and fruit from home and making a short milk stop right before arriving is an easy and popular answer, and have a big Mom breakfast the second day. Shopping is such a (hit-and-miss) chore the day you arrive, but the second day it may be considered an exploring event.
