We absolutely loved staying at House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast! We stayed four nights (7/18-7/21) and loved every single day and night. I have never stayed at a B&B before, now I cannot imagine staying any other place. Kevin and Wendy are great host. Our first evening was spent on the back porch enjoying a cold beer... More

My husband and I ended our two-week road trip honeymoon in New Orleans, and staying at the House of the Rising Sun allowed us to relax and unwind before we had to head back to work in Austin. Kevin and Wendy are both wonderful hosts and were extremely knowledgeable about the history of their restored home and the worthwhile attractions... More

If you are desperate to stay right in the centre of the French Quarter then don't stay here. If on the other hand you want to stay at a homely, comfortable B&B,in an historic local neighbourhood that has a couple of local bars with live music and is just a 6 minute ferry crossing over the Mississippi to the bottom...

Wife and I just stayed here for 3 days over the 4th of July in The Big Easy. If safe convenient location, comfortable night's sleep, delicious morning breakfasts, hospitable and warm hosts, quiet spot, all at a fair price appeals to you, look no further. New Orleans is a fun exciting city to visit, but I can't even imagine staying... More

Our stay at the House of the Rising Sun Ben and Breakfast was a wonderful experience. We were greeted on our arrival by Kevin and his very nice dog Boudain.

Kevin and Wendy welcomed us into their home as they would a loved relative. The room and bed were excellent and well appointed. We enjoyed the backyard and deck. Boudain, their dog was quiet, loving and non obtrusive. Breakfast was outstanding and served with conversation and good information about the area. We will be back

Kevin and Wendy took wonderful care of us during our stay. We loved it and would definitely stay there again. Everything was very clean and orderly. There are only a few rooms, so it's a very personal experience to stay at their place, very different from staying in a large hotel. Kevin provided a great tasting and healthy fruit bowl... More

Both my mother and I spent 2 nights at the Rising Sun B&B. We both enjoyed Kevin's hospitality and information on place to see and eat while in NOLA. The location of the B&B is across the river from downtown in Algiers Point, but since we drove, the location was fine. Drive time to downtown was all of 10 minutes.... More
