Second visit to NOLA and of course my second visit to this AWESOME B&B. I could not ask for better hosts, Kevin and Wendy make you feel like you are home. The place is clean, homey and located extremely close to French Quarter which makes it perfect if you want to enjoy the town but have a little quite time... More

The accommodations were great!! Very reasonably priced, located in a nice safe neighborhood within walking distance of the ferry. The entire home is kept very clean at all times. There is front porch and back yard access for those who enjoy socializing outside. The hosts Kevin & Wendy are gracious, warm and very inviting people.

The house is awesome, very welcoming, Kevin greeting us and was so helpful with places to eat, visit, etc.. We were there for 3 days and 2 nights and it was wonderful. The property is lovely and the highlight at the house is Boudin the Dog, he is so sweet. We stayed in the Frogman room which had a comfortable... More

A bit late with this review, but anyway... Another JazzFest and another opportunity to stay at our favourite B&B with (now) old friends Wendy and Kevin.. and of course Boudin the wonder dog. The House is a great location, especially during a busy time like JazzFest. The ferry still runs more or less to schedule, even though the operating times... More

We stayed five nights in the Clarence Frogman Henry room. You really need five nights in New Orleans, there is so much to do. The accommodations were lovely and very convenient. Kevin recommended we attend a local street fair. I am so glad we listened. The music was excellent. It was my favorite part of the trip. This is a... More

House of the Rising Sun was a perfect place to stay during our 5 day vacation. New Orleans is filled with with many things to experience ...music, food, history...and in June it is sooo hot and humid! We were so happy to be staying at the peaceful House of the rising Sun in Algiers Point. The air conditioning and ceiling... More

Had an amazing time in New Orleans, staying at House of the Rising Sun B&B. It was just a short ferry ride to the centre of the city (only $2 each way) made it an ideal location, close enough to enjoy the cities entertainment and peaceful enough in Algiers point not to be bothered by noise. We were last here... More

We stayed 2 nights - New Orleans' best kept secret! What you get for the price is unbeatable. We stayed in the Memphis Minnie room, and it was beautiful. The bathroom was convenient and private. We were an easy walk from the ferry, which cost $2 for a one-way trip (only takes exact change) and drops you off right in... More
