My wife and I recently had our 1 year anniversary, and wanted to do something within driving distance and within our price range. We have done several B&B's in New Orleans and wanted something different. This place proved to be better than expected. The location, grounds, accommodations were all excellent. Maureen was hospitable and made sure we were taken care... More

This property was beautiful. My husband took me here for my birthday. The owners were very helpful with all the arraignments that he had planned, even to the one dozen of roses from a local florist sitting in the room when we arrived! Everything was beautiful. I will be looking forward to going back for another visit.

We stayed in the Cottage (first floor) for a weekend. We brought our child, so it was great that the owners accommodated that...enjoyed having a screened-in porch so much. The cottage was the perfect suite in the B&B to spread out & have privacy. Our kiddo slept on the small sofa, while we had our own separate bedroom. Comfortable bed,... More

We have just gotten home from a wonderful 2 night stay and we are still talking about how special it was. We arrived on Friday to a very warm welcome from Maureen. She gave us a quick tour and told us "to relax in our own private condominium". (We were ensconced in the King Suite Cottage, lower level). It was... More

I desperately wanted to surprise my new wife with a romantic and relaxing getaway on our wedding night...Blue Willow certainly did not disappoint! We stayed in "The Cottage" suite. Mrs. Maureen and Mr. Tom really went above and beyond! The rose petals scattered around the bedroom and chocolate covered strawberries they had set out were a perfect touch! We had... More

We just finished our stay at the blue willow bed and breakfast and we have to say it was both romantic and relaxing. From afternoon naps to waking up and having a quiet cup of coffee on the balcony overlooking the beautiful scenery. This place looks like it is straight out of a movie scene.

A fantastic stay while in town for a bridal tea at the English Tea Room. Maureen has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and delightful.

Finest B &B have ever stayed. We stayed in the Orleans suite with a private balcony, king bed was high quality, spacious bath. Kitchenette with microwave refrigerator and stocked with drinks and goodies. I deeply appreciated having our breakfast left in the refrigerator so we did not have to dress and have our meal with strangers. It was conveniently located... More

Over the years we have hosted celebrities, judges, senators and any number of special people but it was an extreme pleasure to have had as our guests a school friend of Maureen and her husband. Not only did we enjoy catching up but they were gracious enough to share a rare vintage champagne with us while toasting to their fifth... More
