Wendy and Kevin are the perfect hosts.They have the ability to make you feel at home the minute you walk through the door. Their local knowledge was invaluable in making our stay and experience of the magic that is New Orleans, quite unforgettable. I can't rate them highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

We had our second stay at the House of the Rising Sun and it was just as wonderful as the first. The historic neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and safe, yet, has easy access to the heart of the action in the French Quarter by ferry or car. Kevin and Wendy are great hosts, provide a delicious breakfast and full of... More

Great location. Easy to take ferry to downtown, but in a great little neighborhood. . Comfortable. Quiet. We ate in town mainly, but meals looked good. Great little café around the corner by the park. Crayfish and Grits...yum!

Full of character, and full of characters. This is a unique and friendly B&B in a great location, a brief stroll and a scenic ferry ride away from the thrills of downtown New Orleans. We were entertained each morning by Kevin's impeccable choice of music and deep well of knowledge and anecdote: all recommendations gratefully received! And the best meals... More

We stayed here on our first ever trip to New Orleans after reading the other reviews on trip advisor and what a fantastic place. Full of charm and quirkiness that you want in a New Orleans B&B. Ideally Situated right near the ferry to get across to the French quarter. Some really nice places to eat just down the road... More

Kevin is fantastic, knows history and loves New Orleans and Algiers. The house is beautiful conveniently located close to the ferry to Bourbon st. The room was quiet and had a great shower . I will be back.

This was my third stay with Kevin and Wendy at the House of the Rising Sun. As mentioned in my earlier review Algiers Point offers welcome relief from the much more frantic part of the city across the river. The B&B is well situated, a short walk away from the ferry terminal and various eating and drinking places. The accommodation... More

Having visited this great place ten years ago we always promised to return and yet again, what a memorable stay we had. Kevin and Wendy are fabulous, friendly and helpful hosts aided and abetted by the faithful Boudin the dog. Located a very good stone's-throw from downtown NO, separated by the Mississippi river and accessible by foot-ferry makes the location... More

Enjoyed a second stay at the House of the Rising Sun B&B! I love the location which is a short ferry ride across the beautiful Mississippi River to the French Quarter! You can have the best of both worlds......an old-fashioned stay in a quiet neighborhood and then hop across the river to the crazy world of Bourbon Street! Thanks Kevin... More

My friend and I had a delightful 4 days at HRS. Kevin is a gracious and helpful host. Their unique home is nestled in lovely quiet area of Algiers, close to the ferry, pubs and cafes. Kevin has done an excellent guide to Algiers and we followed his map and really enjoyed the street scales. He also advised us about... More
