Auld Sweet Olive had been recommended by friends who visited in April and I stayed here with my husband and four friends (3 couples) for three nights during a two week tour of the Deep South in August. Nancy's wonderful hospitality from the booking process and during our stay made us feel incredibly welcome. A beautiful home, unbelievably delicious home-baked... More

We stayed in this B&B for three nights during August 2014. Nothing to say...just perfect! Feeling like home every minutes. Nancy is super and gave us all the freedom that we needed. And what about the breakfast? Super as well!

Loved staying here and wish it could have been longer! My wife and I stayed here 2 nights in May 2014 as part of our 1st anniversary trip. When looking at pics and reading reviews I knew this was the right place for us. I started street viewing the area around the B&B and it made me 2nd guess myself... More

The home itself is full of love and character. Nancy's hospitality and award winning breakfasts and fresh fruit in the parlor really start the day off right. The rooms are quiet and clean and decorated in a unique way. There is a lot of outdoor space and a lovely and spacious patio area for outdoor dining. The living space is... More

My mother and I travelled to New Orleans for the July 4th Long Weekend. I booked the hotel online with no problems and promptly received a confirmation email from the owner, Nancy. The day we arrived Nancy met us at the B&B, she gave us a tour of the lovely home and provided us with maps and information on the... More

We spend 5 nights in the bed and breakfast and we did not want to go home! What a beautiful house and Nancy is an amazing host to have! Rooms are beautifully decorated and feel like home. When you don't feel like going out you can sit outside in the garden. Breakfast is homemade and amazing, something different every day!... More

A friend and I stayed here during the Essence Fest a couple weeks ago. I secured this reservation back in February after talking to the owner, Nancy. She was very pleasant and helpful on the phone when I asked her several questions about the bed and breakfast and about New Orleans in general. When we checked in, she was there... More

We spent 8 nights in the Courtyard Suite and it was truly our home away from home. The french doors leading to the back patio were such a convenience as we spent many evenings resting and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Nancy was a wonderful host and very knowledgeable about her city. The house was beautiful and only a short walk... More

I found this place on line but it there was no vacancy. at the last minute with no hotel to stay we were lucky enough to get a room. The owner welcomed us into her amazing home. I loved it from the minute I walked in. Loved the artwork painted on the walls. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. Spacious,... More

Not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said! Would highly recommend if you fancy something totally different and quirky and not your usual unfriendly hotel. Its a wonderful place to stay and Nancy is a fantastic host. Don't expect to have TV, there are plenty of board games if you want to play them. It was great... More
