Kevin was a personable host at the charming bed and breakfast. The rooms were always taken care of, any needs met and the breakfast was fresh made daily. I enjoyed Kevin's stories of the history of New Orleans as well as the background of the work and interesting finds he has discovered since moving to New Orleans. Kevin made you... More

We've never been in New Orleans hence were somewhat novices at getting around and gaining information. Kevin and Wendy were totally helpful and offered a great, clean place to stay. We especially enjoyed the tasty breakfasts and petting their very friendly dog Boudin! And, the location and access to the ferry were very advantageous. Later hours of ferry operation would... More

My wife and I recently spent several days in New Orleans and stayed at the House of the Rising Sun. This is one of the nicest B&B's we've stayed in. Kevin is a wonderful host, full of ideas, very upbeat and engaging. His house is very nice, full of books and stories. The location is in Algiers Point, which is... More

Despite a few "stumbles" along the way (none of which were the fault of HRSBB) our four night stay was indeed the best choice of accommodations we made during our recent month long trip "on the road". As other reviewers have noted, being located "across the river" which at first may seem inconvenient, is actually a major benefit. Ferry, bus,... More

Many thanks for your wonderful review and very pleased you thought so highly of our little B&B. We very much look forward to your next visit. Hopefully, the ferry will be back to its extended hours but guests are having no trouble getting back and forth to the Quarter. Late at night B&B guests staying across the river also have... More

Kevin is a great host with the help. I read the most recent reviews and agree with them fully. Here are some of my favorite in addition to the other reviews. There was a calming atmosphere there from the home, the porch and Algiers itself. There was little or no traffic with the occasional sound of a boat whistle from... More

Many thanks for your wonderful review! Yes, Algiers Point is a quiet retreat from the madness across the river - that's why we chose to live here. We look forward to seeing you both back here soon as you are only a couple of hours drive away in Mobile. More

We stayed here for five very comfortable nights. After spending Mardi Gras over the river, Algiers Point was a nice change of pace. It's a peaceful and picturesque neighbourhood, just a five minute ferry ride away from Canal Street. The BnB is a stone's throw from the ferry, or to the hourly bus back over the bridge so there's no... More

A beautiful house with a very warm welcome, the House of the Rising Sun was a real home from home. Our room, the Memphis Minnie, was beautiful, warm and cozy. Great decor with signs reminding us to watch out for ladies of ill repute, prohibition and pickpockets - all were kept at bay on this occasion. The House of the... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at the house of the rising sun. Kevin is a great host. He greeted us with cold abitas and recommendations, told stories of New Orleans/ Algiers history over breakfast (so nice to have fresh fruit before heading out to deep fried land), and was overall gracious and very welcoming. The house is beautiful,... More

Loved this short (4 nights) vacation. Kevin, Wendy and Boudin are great hosts - warm and friendly without intruding (well Boudin might intrude for a head-scratch). They had great suggestions for restaurants and bars. Frogman room was comfortable and quiet even with close proximity to the kitchen. Breakfast was fresh fruit, yogurt and granola plus an English muffin if desired... More
