So close to lots of great restaurants (Bacchanal!) and bars, but far enough from the Bourbon St insanity that you feel like you are experiencing more than just the tourist spots. Amazing accommodations and a beautiful pool area as well.

We Spent four days in July at the Lookout Inn and it was fantastic. The rooms are great and spacious, the house is beautiful and the small pool in the back is perfect. We love the Bywater and the Lookout is within walking distance of every nice bar and restaurant in the quarter. We could not recommend this strongly enough.

We just returned from renting the entire Lookout Inn with a group of friends. It was spectacular!! Being as NOLA is hot in July, the pool was absolutely the highlight. We woke up and jumped right in for the day, then experienced the nightlife that is New Orleans. The pool/cabana area had everything we needed. It was such a beautiful... More

We brought our entire family, young and old, to the Lookout and had a lifetime experience there. The delicious pool was our gathering point and rejuvenation station during some hot weather. What a must that so many other lodging choices didn't even offer. Have Kelly set you up with the local bike rental company and you will increase your ability... More

After seeing the photos on the website, I knew the Lookout Inn would be either horribly tacky or delightfully charming; thankfully it was the latter. I was in the Bollywood suite. It was quite large and airy (huge bathroom) and had a wonderfully eclectic collection of antiques and objets d'arts. There are only 4 suites and even though it appeared... More

There isn't enough space to rave about the Lookout Inn. The most important thing for me is the owner who sets the tone for the entire stay. Kelly and her husband are wonderful and available without hovering. They have created a lovely oasis in a beautifully restored house. They love their home and want guests to love it too. We... More

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
