I had told via booking.com that we would arrive late at night but I didn't check my mails so I couldn't know, that there was a perfect solution organized by Nancy for us to get in. We could make it to call Nancy and she was soooo friendly, even... More

We were pleasantly surpised arriving in this beautiful house, even received an upgrade, Nice suite with kitchen and sitting corner. Loved the way the whole house is decorated. Nancy as the perfect host, always willing to help decide on the best places to visit, where to go for the music and where to eat. Do go and take the swamp... More

When deciding whether to stay, I asked the Innkeeper about the air conditioners as I did not want to stay at a place where the AC would not cool my room. I was assured the AC units were excellent and I must say, they were. I was very happy about that! The bed was very comfortable, so a good night's... More

Just returned from a three night trip to NOLA and I had to sit down and write a quick review of this charming Bed & Breakfast. I traveled with my wife, our 18 year old son and 9 year old daughter. I reserved the courtyard suite and tears came to my eyes as I watched the delight on my family's... More

Stayed here for my birthday back in late May (Long overdue vacation after many years). I spent hours researching where to stay before I found this place. BEST choice ever. Outstanding food, upfront pricing (no hidden parking fees or other garbage) gorgeous rooms, and an incredible owner/manager (Thanks so much, Nancy!). She really went out of her way to make... More

My husband and I went to enjoy a short visit to New Orleans and spent 2 nights and 3 days at this beautiful b&b. The area was charming with a lot of flavor. Close to the French Quarters, we walked there daily. The house was beyond beautiful, no noisy at all, comfortable and just a pleasure to be there. The... More

Myself and a friend stayed in Auld Sweet Olive for three nights in July. The innkeeper Nancy welcomed us in to her beautiful home with open arms. She had obviously spent time and effort gathering info-materials to help her guests make the most of there trip, which we really appreciated. She was always available if we needed to ask anything....
