This home is absolutely beautiful from the moldings to the furniture. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of very interesting information. House was in great condition. Excellent price for a house tour and in a safe area.

Had a great tour on December 11, 2015 - 1:00. There were only two of us on the tour so it felt very intimate. The docent was really interesting, I did not get his name. I enjoyed the way he talked about the history of the house. It was interesting to learn that the house was saved from demolition because... More

Interesting place, our group had a catered dinner here. The docent was a charming fellow who gave a nice re-cap of the home's history, but honestly it wasn't all that interesting. There were few chairs to sit down in, and the decor was quite tired and the rooms sparely furnished. There's a courtyard in the back, with a number of... More

BKHouse, Executive Director at Beauregard-Keyes House, responded to this review

Hi, thank you so much for coming in to the House. Generally, during events we store the antique furniture, both to allow for better flow during the event and to protect our more delicate pieces. We also keep the back carriage house closed because it houses some of our precious collections and we simply don't have enough staff to manage... More

Our tour host on December 8 , 2015 provided an interesting and informal walk through the house. He was enthusiastic and appeared to enjoy giving the tours. The 40 minute tour was the right amount time to spend. The knowledge shared was just enough so as not to give you information overload. The tour cost was $10 per person. Good... More

We had an enthusiastic guide who did a great job. The house is pretty enough, but the history of it is fascinating. We learned about two of its famous owners, General P.G.T. Beauregard and the author, Frances Parkinson Keyes. The stories we heard were very interesting and much of Mrs. Keyes possessions remain in the house. Located in the French... More

It's right in the center of the French Quarter, but I imagine a lot of people miss it! We booked ahead on line, but you can just come when they tell you too on the door. A gracious and knowledgeable guide gave us a fantastic and informative tour of this historic property. The Ursuline Convent is right across the street... More

The architecture of this place was unbelievable. We enjoyed seeing and hearing about General Beauregard and seeing the work Mrs. Keyes did to restore the home. The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. A definite must for anyone who enjoys history. It was great to be able to purchase one of Mrs. Keyes' books at the gift shop before... More

Like a time machine, you are transported back to pre-Civil War when it was built, and on to General Beauregard who lived here after serving in the Civil War (He ordered the first shots of the Civil War during the bombardment of Fort Sumter in April 1861). You feel as if you`re expecting the General to walk through the front... More

My husband and I toured this house and it was a great example of a New Orleans historic home, since it had been restored to its former glory! The Beauregards built the house, but Mrs. Keyes restored the house, which is why its called by both names! There were great examples of period furniture, some of which belonged to the... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
