Affordable, clean and soooo cute. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary but still lavish, stay here. Kelly the owner is so nice and helpful. She even held my bags for a bit so that I could go visit Villalobos Rescue down the road. (It's within walking distance by the way!) I'd definitely stay here again.

Pros: Gorgeous older home, The outdoor space is amazing- Small pool, hot tub, cabana complete with shower, sunscreen, etc, lush tropical surroundings. Kelly is extremely nice and helpful. The proprietors live on the property which made us feel safer (see cons) and this came in handy when the people across the hall were extremely loud in the middle of the... More

Hey there! Thank you very much for your thorough review of our inn, the Bywater and New Orleans. I'm so glad you enjoyed our outdoor communal space. Please accept my apologies for the louder guests across the hall from you. It's very easy to get carried away in New Orleans and I'm sorry it caused a disturbance. Additionally, I'm very... More

Beautiful space, wonderful hosts. Visited with co-workers for a conference at the convention center - our organization rented the entire inn. A great economical way to do a work trip with the bonus of getting to come "home" to a real community and not be stuck in tourist world. The rooms are great - very spacious and wonderfully decorated. Everything... More

The Lookout is the perfect place to stay while visiting the Big Easy. It's a beautiful place with a covered area that hides a hot tub, a beautiful area to sit and enjoy the weather in the cabana. Our room was the Elvis room, and when you walk in, every time, you have to smile. The Host were very nice... More

Hi Beverly, Thanks so much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed our inn, especially your time in the Elvis Suite. I'm also glad you enjoyed our location, just far enough away from the French Quarter frenzy. It's great to hear that you come to New Orleans often, so I know I'll see you again! Can't wait!!

Lookout Inn is located in Bywater, off the beaten path in New Orleans. You get the feeling you are in the "real" New Orleans and feel as though you are staying at a friend's house. Kelly and Mark were so helpful and friendly with suggestions for restaurants, driving routes (including the best tattoo shop in town!) and things to see... More

We just stayed there three nights. Took a taxi from the airport (about $40 when all was said and done). Had the Mission Room. It was very clean and well kept. True to the photos. Bathroom was large and had a claw foot tub and a great shower. Nice to have a refrigerator and sort of separate sitting room. Really... More

This beautiful house is in a neighborhood that undergoes gentrification. The interior is super clean, spacious and comfortable. It is decorated very colorfully, which includes artifacts from china and other locations and a tiger-patterned carpet. Kelly was very helpful whenever I called her with questions. The privacy level is excellent, I never ran into other guests, even though some seemed... More

The Lookout Inn is the perfect place to stay in New Orleans. From the hot tub and stocked cabana to the clean and comfy rooms to the praline on my pillow it was awesome. Parking is free and close by. It's a $9 cab fair from the French Quarter. This will definitely be the first place I book for my... More

The Bywater is a lovely gem of New Orleans, both residential (quiet) and convenient. The highway is a 5 minute drive, the quarter is a 5-10 minute taxi ride. The Lookout is a fantastic little Inn (only 4 suites! nice and cozy and quiet) located conveniently to all of new orleans attractions. From good food within walking distance, to the... More
