What visitors say about Biz’s Cabin

A number of years ago our family stayed at the Biswell’s cabin on the Mississippi for a week. Our three children rate this vacation as one the best family vacations ever! They had a great time playing around the river (not in the river!) and hunting for geodes. We took day trips to historical cities on the Mississippi including Nauvoo, IL and Hannibal, MO. It was a great place to kick our feet up, unwind and reconnect as a family.

– Marisa B.

We love coming to Nauvoo, IL, not only for it’s historical significance, but to stay and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life by staying at this quaint cabin by the Mississippi River. It’s a quiet serene place with beautiful scenery, located off of the main highway. The cabin is always clean and homey when we get there. And the owners will go out of their way to make your stay a great one! We have suggested this to some of our friends in the past, and they have also found what we’ve found while staying there. QUIET AND RELAXATION We encourage anyone that visit’s Nauvoo to stay at this cabin. They truly will not regret it.

What others have said about Biz’s Cabin

We had a great time staying at Biz's cabin. The view of the Mississippi is phenomenal, and the location was so convenient to historic downtown Nauvoo. The cabin is not large, but it fit our family well with plenty of beds for all, and it was wonderful to have the convenience of a full kitchen and laundry on site. We plan to stay again the next time our travels take us to Nauvoo.
