Kelly and Mark did a great job of accommodating our crazy party of 8 (4 couples). They made us feel welcome, gave us suggestions of things to do allowed us to just relax and enjoy the inn. The backyard with the pool, hot tub and cabanas was such a fabulous place to hang out. We loved every minute we spent... More

We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights and it was a wonderful experience. We are already talking about our next trip back and we will definitely be staying at the Inn again. Kelly was great to work with. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and wonderfully decorated. It was very quiet and we felt comfortable walking around the neighborhood.... More

A great and well run property. We were a large group and rented the full property which worked perfectly. Kelly was very helpful and gracious, and Percy's rare visits most welcome! Hot tub and pool made a great spot to hang out together. And we found a number of perfect bars (Bar Redux, JJs, Vaughans) and restaurants (the amazing Baccanal,... More

If you are looking to have a real New Orleans experience, this is your place. Located close enough to the Qtr but not too close. The neighborhood has a great feel to it and packed with super friendly people. Everyone we passed offered a greeting and many times, blessings. The local establishments range from extreme dive bars to new wine... More

We stayed at the Inn for a 4 night bachelorett party. The Inn exceeded our expectations and Kelly the owner was absolutely wonderful to work with. It was a great experience from the time we started booking the trip to the day we left. We could not ask for a better host. She was able to stock the house with... More

The Lookout was an amazing place to stay. Kelly, Shawn, and Percival the dog did everything they could to accommodate all 10 of us. The rooms were huge and very comfortable (although a sleeper sofa is a sleeper sofa). As other reviews have said, this isn't a typical b&b in a super swanky neighborhood. But that's what we liked about... More

We rented all four of the rooms for our entire family and it worked out great. The rooms all had plenty of space for us all to get together; the neighborhood was great; lots of places to walk to were close by. Kelly was great to work with and even though I booked from far away in Alaska, Kelly had... More

We stayed here for three nights. Seamless check in and warm welcome by the host. A beautiful home in a fun neighborhood off the beaten path. Not a classic hotel or B&B but everything you need: The suite was spacious and lovely decorated, a nice backyard with pool, hot tub, outdoor mini kitchen, coffee maker and fridge in the room....

The Lookout Inn was a great house in the Bywater area. It is just about a block from the 5 bus stop to the French Quarter and just a few doors down from Bar Re-dux, which I highly recommend for food and drinks. Each room is themed, there is a nice backyard with pool, hot tub, outdoor mini kitchen area... More
