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

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
