This was a gem to find! I was looking in Nauvoo for a place to stay for my family of 8 and was referred to Dave in Carthage. The drive to Nauvoo is very easy and only takes about 20 minutes. The location was wonderful as that we were in walking distance to Carthage Jail and a country market which we would not have had access to in Nauvoo as that town is very small.
The accommodations were wonderful! There were three beds in total, in three separate rooms. There is a BBQ area outside, and the kitchen and pantry space was great. They had all the things we could have wanted or needed such as pots, pans, plates etc.
There is one bathroom, but it was never an issue for an "emergency". I also appreciated that there was quality shampoo, conditioner, and two types of body wash.
The cost was VERY affordable!
Quality place and very comfortable.
This is my third or fourth stay at Carthage Suites. I travel here for business and it truly has become my home away from home. Dave and his wife have remodeled this apartment above a storefront on the historic Carthage square. They have done a fabulous job. It is furnished and has all of the amenities that I could want and more.
There is a full kitchen with new appliances and stocked with dishes and utensils that you would need. The living room is large and comfortable with a 55" + tv with Direct TV. The bathroom has a dual sink vanity and tub/shower combo. The bedrooms are large and spacious with nicely appointed and comfortable beds. There is wifi with internet free. There is also a very nice laundry room with full washer and dryer.
There is a deck out back with a grill. Like fresh vegetables - if you see something you want in their garden - take it.
The County Market grocery store is 1 block away to stock up for meals. Don't want to cook? On the square are Los Charros Mexican restraunt, Alfannos Italian, Taste of China, and the Wood Inn Bar and grill all easily walked to. Also nearby are Hardees, DQ, Lilly's frozen yogurt, Subway, etc.
I was able to bring my family of 6 here and stay very comfortably. There are 2 official bedrooms with what is essentially a third off of the main bedroom (no door - was an office space previously I believe). In fact, we have it booked again in July for the whole family.
The owners are all about making your stay comfortable and making sure that you have everything that you need. They continue to develop their property and are planing on adding a 1 bedroom and an efficiency style suite.
I have stayed in many hotels for much more money and not had nearly as nice of accommodations.
My only concern about this place is that as the word gets out about it - I will have more difficulty getting the dates I need it for when I return!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Carthage Suites. It was a spacious 2 1/2 room loft with A large screen TV, kitchen area complete with coffee and ice maker. It is very centrally located, and the owners are wonderful and extremely helpful.
The Carthage Suites is located perfectly in downtown Carthage, right across from a gorgeous historic courthouse! This was a jaw dropping place to stay with my boyfriend while we visited family. We even spent sometime getting to know the owners on the back patio that overlooks the garden in the summer, you can really tell Monica and Dave put hard work and effort into making this the best place to stay year round!
I just finished my second stay at the executive condo in Carthage. Another pleasurable experience!! The place is quaint yet a modern feel where it counts (bathroom, TV, internet). Hardwood floors and antique furniture is the difference. Plenty of room. And spotless!! Can't wait to get back to Carthage.
