We stayed at this B & B April 10-14th, Memphis Minnie room. It's a great location, walking distance from French Quartier. The ferry runs every half hour. Great little pub just a couple of blocks away. Very quiet neighbourhood. The bed was very comfortable. We liked that all rooms have their own private bathrooms, so no sharing of bathrooms.

Take this opportunity to stay in a genuine shotgun cottage in New Orleans, just a ferry ride (a treat in itself) across the Mississippi, from Canal Street, this comfy B&B is a haven of tranquility after a busy day of sightseeing. With comfortable beds and breakfast with lively conversation, this place is a great alternative to boring hotel rooms, it... More

My partner and I had a wonderful time at the cozy little B and B! The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They took time to show us different places on the map to visit during our trip to get the best experience possible. We will definitely stay here again!!

This is our second time staying with Kevin and Wendy. The atmosphere is so great and the travelers Kevin seems to attract are a lot of fun. Conversations can run from breakfast through the entire morning! Kevin is an excellent host and can always think of a story to tell that keeps the conversation going, not there is ever much... More

The owners are very personable and interesting people. The house is cozy with all amenities you would need. Location is a definite plus, the ferry ride is quick and fun and lands you at the foot of canal street (just make sure you have the fare -$2 - in exact change, and Kevin can help you there :) ).

I could not have been more pleased with our choice of the House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast in Algiers Point, New Orleans. Our hosts, Kevin and Wendy, welcomed us warmly. Elements of history (recent as well as older) blend with softly playing music.Kevin shared delightful stories during our delicious and nutritious breakfast. Our bedroom with ensuite bath... More

Recently spent 2 nights at this wonderful B&B. Went for a girls getaway. The house is charming and very well located. Just a few blocks from the ferry which will take you to downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. It is located in a beautiful area of the point within a few blocks of several restaurants and a lovely... More

Our first visit to New Orleans and Kevin was great at giving us all the tips and info that made our stay a wonderful experience. Liked the fact that we could go to the pub on the corner on the way to the ferry and on the way back. Good restaurants on the Algiers side of the water as well.... More

Thank you for your wonderful review and for your follow up email explaining that you gave us all 5 star reviews but Tripadvisor only shows 4 for value and 3 for cleanliness. Even though you said you were going to contact Tripadvisor and explain this, the ratings have remained the same (not your fault) and will probably affect our position... More
