As we entered the house, we were offered free Frances Parkinson Keyes books from a table. The docent introduced herself then led us through the house with entertaining stories from the initial building of the unique home in the French Quarter to the Mrs. Keyes time in the home. Never have I visited a historic home where the docent invited... More

If you have an hour to spare while in New Orleans' French Quarter, stop by the Beauregard-Keyes House. This lovely historic home has been beautifully restored and the stories told by the tour guides are fascinating. The tour takes about an hour and is a nice way to take a cool break on a hot day.

The Beauregard-Keyes (pronounced "kize") house mixes the old and the new. This beautifully furnished home belonged to General Beauregard. The furnishings are wonderful and in excellent condition. The gentleman that conducted the tour was extremely knowledgeable. One of my favorite authors, Frances Parkinson Keyes, from the 40's - 60's purchased the house and spent years restoring it to how it... More

I Really liked the furnishings that are still in the house, as well as the tour guide himself. He was really nice & cool. so when your down at Jimmy buffets having a boat drink don't forget to walk just as couple of blocks over & tour this historic home.

The tour of this home took us back to New Orleans in the 1800s. Our tour guide was just great; friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He told interesting stories about the house and its inhabitants. The tour is of the main house, gardens and slave quarters which are all fascinating. This is a beautiful property, beautifully restored and right on Chartes... More

beautifully decorated old home with a lot of history and colorful characters. Wonderfully preserved and great place to sit and relax while learning and enjoying New Orleans. Fabulous curved stairs and wide porch with shade. Recommend and enjoy.

I have visited many historic houses, mansions, and castles. Many of them (especially in the US) are super strict and protective with rules like, don't touch and no photography. One of the things I enjoyed the most about Beauregard-Keyes House is that neither of those rules apply. Except for a few things in display cases, visitors are allowed to touch... More

Please take a couple of hours away from the bawdy side of new Orleans and visit this interesting house made more interesting by the affable, knowledgeable guide. Fascinating history of the two very diverse main occupants, a reasonable charge and they give you a free novel to take with you!

Very charming tour of a lovely home. The guides are well versed in the history of the home, and its famous occupants. So nice to see a well-preserved and restored home, in this age of pre-fab modern (sometimes) monstrosities. And nice reverie to imagine what life was like back in the day. Lots of interesting stories involving the home's former... More

It was a lovely visit thru this nice old home to peek in the past. The tour guide was very knowledgable with history and Mrs Keyes' life. Can't wait to read one of her books!
