Nauvoo House Rental Information

We will be bunking together in the Historic Nauvoo House for two nights (Friday, October  14th, Saturday the 16th).

The Nauvoo House is located on the bank of the mighty Mississippi and directly across the street from Joseph and Emma Smith’s Homestead and Mansion House, it provides the perfect setting from which to explore beautiful Nauvoo.

Space is VERY LIMITED and we can only take reservations for 50 people. Attendees will need to bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, etc. The sleeping arrangements are open (bunk style) with twin bunk beds. Bathrooms and showers will be shared. Think of it as Mormon EFY, but for adults!

We will be bunking together for two nights with gender neutral sleeping assignments. The sleeping arrangements are camp-style in open rooms. You will not have a private room. If you wish to attend the retreat, but not bunk with us, please contact Lindsay at Lindsay@sunstone.org to make arrangements.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner will be provided on Saturday the 16th and breakfast on Sunday morning the 17th. Your registration fee will cover the cost of your lodgings, your tours, and your meals.
