The 1244 Esplanade Ave mansion is the main office, breakfast, pool and hot tub are located. There are also rooms there which was once a... More

We called to inquire about availability and we were met with suspicion and accusation. They managers did not remember donating any gift certificates and they were going to "investigate" the truth before letting us know of their availability. The... More

Rathbone Mansions has stolen my heart! I met up here with old school friends; in the last week of November 2015. I checked in to Rathbone and was looked after right from the get go! You know when you feel like you have to be on your best behavior and there's the 'them and us' feeling between the hosts and... More

This historic home is in a fantastic location within walking distance of the best NOLA has to offer! My only advice is that it caters to humble, fun-loving individuals and families. Not sure if this place fits your needs? See the Q&A below. 1. Are you looking for historic charm with a completely modern renovation and new paint smell? -This... More

We traveled halfway around the world to be there, and it was better than we could have possibly imagined. See you again soon, you cant get rid of... More

I recently stayed at the Rathbone Mansions for a weeks stay. I highly recommend a stay at this beautifully set out B & B. From the art that decorates the dining area from one of the lovely hosts Jacey Frew to the outdoor entertainment area "Mermaid Lounge" This place can keep you entertained for hours. So much character! & the... More

I have stayed in many B&Bs around the world, but I have never before come across such open-hearted hospitality as at Rathbone Mansions. Pat, Jacey, and Tanya went over and above the call of duty to ensure our stay was wonderful. My room was spacious with antique furnishings, and from what I saw through getting to know other guests, each... More

Staying in Treme

Neighborhood Profile
Treme
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
