We decided to give Oakview a try because of it location across from City Park. It is a nice little B&B, with a charming feel. The room was comfortable and our host was very attentive, without being intrusive.He noticed that I had been going out to run, and he offered to make sure that I had extra towels for showering,...

My wife and I stayed at Oakview the weekend of 11 December 15 to go to the Celebration in the Park which is in the New Orleans City Park and we chose Oakview as it is across the street from the park and within 2 blocks of a trolley stop. Our room was great. We stayed in the Azalea room... More

Delicious breakfast served as if it was made by your own mother. We were treated as if we were part of the family. 10 minutes from the French quarter. Right... More

The Oakview Bed and Breakfast is a perfect location for one who wants a more relaxed feel of the Big Easy. One can head out from here to all areas of the city. You also will have the feel of the 'real people' of the city and not a tourist locale. It is perfect for anyone who really wants to... More

New Orleans Review Where to stay: Oak View Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful 5 bedroom B&B across from City Park. Russell, the owner, is a great host and his wife makes fantastic biscuits for the morning breakfast. I am a southern boy from Tennessee and have eaten biscuits all my life. These ranked right up there in the top... More

Russell was very friendly and attentive. The home is beautiful. Breakfast was simple yet flavorful. It's across the street from beautiful City Park which is worth exploring and the street car stop is a few steps from the front door. You can be in the French Quarter in just a few minutes. We parked at the BNB and took the... More

Oakview is nicely located across from City Park, which has great walking paths, with a lovely sculpture garden and art museum, as well as a great little coffee shop with yummy beignets, that is open 24 hrs. The house is also only a block from the Canal St./City Park Museum streetcar line. So even though you're not close to the... More

The rooms are beautiful, Russell is a warm and attentive host, and the breakfast is fabulous and filling! City Park across the road is lovely, and the trolley is a stone's throw away and drops you right at the edge of the French Quarter and the connection for the Garden District. We will mostly likely pick this B & B... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighborhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
