My extended family rented the entire inn recently for a vacation and could not have asked for a better stay. The inn is the perfect base of operations for out of towners. It's located in the charming Bywater neighborhood, and one night after a great dinner at The Joint, we walked around the area and met several very friendly neighbors.... More

I was just floored by this amazing space and it's owners. We rented the whole house for our family and were surprised at the reasonable price. The rooms were all comfortable and interesting as each one had a personality all it's own. It's located a couple of miles from the French Quarter in a unique neighborhood. It was nice to... More

This fantastic Inn is a couple of miles from the city centre but in a part of New Orleans that everyone that visits should experience. At first glance the neighbourhood didn't look as I expected, but spend some time and have an open mind and you realise that it is actually a thriving and friendly community dotted with local bars,...

Found this little Inn on Trip Advisor and went straight to their website to see if it was really as good as it sounded. It is. The Bywater neighborhood is turning around and we felt safe in this quiet home/hotel. Owners Kelly and Michael live in the front one-story half and the rear two-stories are divided into four beautiful suites... More

I stayed at the Lookout Inn with a few other couples. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The real charm of the Inn lies in the backyard where there is a nice pool, hot tub, covered alcove with sofas and chairs, and a bar area. It was the perfect place to relax after walking around all day through New... More

From the minute I contacted Kelly, I knew I made the right choice in booking the Lookout! There were 9 of us traveling together and we rented all four suites and still had enough room for more people. The suites are EXTRMELY clean, theme decorated and quiet! The outdoor hot tub, pool and gathering space are perfect. We only rented... More

On arrival, the Backwater neighborhood didn't look safe! Kelly reassured us and once we acclimated, had a fantastic 4 days. The Inn is warm in character, clean and charming. Fine dining in funky, but welcoming restaurants close by. Street parking was fine and driving around the community, renovations are occurring everywhere with lots of art studios, etc. Within 5 years... More

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
