This review is long overdue. My boyfriend and I stayed at Lanaux Mansion this past September to celebrate my birthday. We booked the Weiland Room, and it was just the perfect amount of space for the two of us. Ruth is the sweetest lady we've ever met - she is such a great hostess. She was so communicative with us,...

This was our second visit. Still magical and memorable. Brought our son to introduce him to this great city. Ruth, thank you for always making us feel special. The restaurant recommendations were excellent!

The weekend that we spent with Ruth at Lanaux Mansion was perfect in every way. Our room was spotlessly cleaned, yet quaint and charming. Ms. Ruth is very hospitable, and went out of our way to make sure that we had everything we needed. The home is truly a historical gem, and we will definitely plan to stay there again!

Thats Lanaux Mansion and dear Ruth. Here is a home away from home. We stayed in the big downstairs room and it had everything we needed. Ruth made a point of finding out our very un American breakfast tastes were and provided for those. We had five happy days here. Irenes Restaurant, Jazz at Snug Harbour, and dancing at the... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and we could not have found a better spot to experience New Orleans. We had looked at numerous places online and Ruth's photos represent her property beautifully. It is an historical home kept very well! There are only 4 rooms and each has its own very unique features. While we were there,... More

Stayed four nights over New Years. We had the Enchanted Cottage and our friends had the Johnson suite, so we spent enough time in each.The location is very convenient to Frenchman Street for all that great music that you come to NOLA for. Also, it was very quiet, safe and private. We had our own entrance, so it was very... More

A little off the beaten path but that is what my husband and I prefer for privacy. However, don't let that comment sway you away. This B&B has everything you want- privacy, excellent service, close to restaurants and clubs but quiet! Innkeeper is wonderful! Will definately stay here again and recommend to friends!

Two days after proposing, my newly engaged fiancé Kim & I checked in for a quick two and a half day stay at this gorgeous B&B on the recommendation of a friend. My fiancé had never been to New Orleans before and I was eager to show her the true beauty and charm of this city. If you're looking for... More

After being away much too long, we're back in New Orleans! We stay at the Lanaux House when we can (only 4 rooms), and love it, love it, love it. Originally built by NO's wealthiest Creole merchant, the mansion has been owned by the Bodenheimer family for generations, and retains its Belle Epoch charm in every detail. Located in the... More

We stayed in the Enchanted Cottage and it was so quaint, a perfect place to stay while we adventured out in the french quarter and frenchmen street. Ruth, who has owned the mansion since the early 1980s was incredibly accommodating and friendly. She really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable and start a friendship that would... More
