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

Lovely spacious suite in a beautiful old home in a colorful neighborhood in a whimsical, wild, resourceful, resilient, absolutely unique city, New Orleans. Although the weather didn't allow us to enjoy the hot tub, mini pool or cabana, the within-walking distance bars and restaurants more than compensated. I also enjoyed running through nearby Crescent park and the gumbo of residential,... More

The Lookout is an oasis in a busy city. It's a calm step ways from the hustle and bustle. If you are coming in from the Ninth Ward, it seems a little too close for comfort. However, if you come in from the business district, you quickly see that you are in a decent location. Kelly, the owner, quickly assured... More

The wife and I made the jaunt down South in December from LA for a much needed vacation right before Xmas. We arrived late, but were greeted by our hosts with a friendly smile and a quick tip on what to see and do in the neighborhood. We stayed in The Spanish Suite and enjoyed every moment of it. We...

Located in the hip Bywater neighborhood, the INN is a cool and beautiful home base for exploring New Orleans and yet still have a place to relax and unwind. Our hosts were incredibly kind and gracious and made everyone in our party feel welcomed and special. It's small, cozy, and a short walk away to some of the best bars... More

Driving through NOLA can make you leary. I get that, but hang in there! The Lookout Inn is in a neighborhood called Bywater. It is an area of younger people just building their lives & the Inn is an older house that is super cool. Kelly & Marc really took care of our needs & gave us our space. Very... More

It's my secret home in my new favorite neighborhood, the sweet Bywater district of New Orleans, and there are only four rooms, and there's a gorgeous tropical courtyard with banana trees and a pool and a cabana and a hot tub, and there's a wiggly French Bullfog named Percy, and we were allowed to bring my terrier along, and the...

The pool, cabana with amenities, and hot tub were such nice extras. This Inn has 4 separate suites, direct tv,complimentary wifi and free parking!
