“Very spacious suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here with my husband and son. The best thing was not paying for parking as don and Harry let us use their pass. The rooms were very large and because another guest had decided to stay an extra night, we were moved into the large suite (#5 I believe). Overall a great visit

I found this small bnb (six rooms)here and in VRBO. The comments were good, price seemed right($125/nite,total) so we booked. We arrived in early evening and both our hosts Harry and Don helped us unload our luggage and introduced us to Suite 1, one of the two front suites on main floor. It was very nice with lots of antiques, QB, dresser, nightstands, a living room window ac, and small flat screen. Don left on vacation that evening or next morning, but Harry took care of us and answered all our questions. Both of our hosts professional guides and work for several tour companies. There is so much stuff everywhere, it can appear a little cluttered, but that was part of the charm. The kitchen had all we needed and there were several continental breakfast items each morning. There was also bags of chips during day as well as fruit, ice and water. He even had sodas in frig for $1.

The backyard has a nice shaded porch, a spa, a big bird (parrot?) and 3 weiner dogs!!! It is like a rain forest back there with tons of plants and privacy. It is located on Kerlerec, one block past Esplanade just a block or two from Port of Call, Buffa's and a small grocery, It was only about 3or 4 blocks from Frenchman St but would recommend cab in the late hours. We walked to the French Quarter everyday and sometimes twice. From there to the other end at Canal St is a good walk. Our temps were in the 70's-80's so we lucked out since we aren't used to humidity.
We got lost almost everytime we went to Frenchmans as the streets run at angles and our street didn't go thru one block. But we always found our way.

The bathroom was a little tight w/o much storage, but we had a big dresser and 2 nitestands in bedroom. Out our back door was the dining room which wasn't used, then the kitchen, where were everyday. I would recommend this bnb to anyone who wants to be near the quarter and doesn't mind walking, although, again, I wouldn't walk so much on Frenchman St to ours late at night although we saw no trouble. Just a little deserted as it is a working neighborhood. We did have iron gate and deadbolts and all of the others staying there were women.

Room Tip: We liked the extra room and sitting area in Suite 1 and could look out onto the street if we wanted...

Visited with family over the Easter weekend. We were disappointed that the hosts were not present for the majority of our stay, as the reviews here spoke so highly of them. They were only present fleetingly during our stay, I suspect in their absence the service, attention to detail and ambiance as described in other reviews was missing. For us the hosts were one of the major reasons for choosing the accommodation.

Good location, close to the French Quarter

Don and Harry and the girls, their adorable and very well behaved dachshunds, made our stay memorable. We enjoyed our very quiet garden room in this historic home, the great "help yourself" breakfasts. It was fun meeting the other guest as they wandered into the kitchen while we were choosing between home made scones or quiche, coffee cakes or just plain or cereal. Thanks to great hosts, everyone feels at home here and that makes for a great atmosphere.

The location is perfect. If you love live music, enjoy walking, and want to feel like you are staying in the real New Orleans, have dinner on Frenchman Street. We loved being able to walk everywhere, and the only time we took a cab was to go the WWII museum (Don't miss their 4D movie Beyond All Boundries.)

This is not your average B&B, and you won't understand what I mean until you stay there, but do stay there.

We absolutely loved staying here. The hosts go out of their way to please, and are very knowledgeable of all things Nawlins. The rooms and furnishings are eclectic and very tasteful. The home is old, 1836 I believe, so it's not the Hilton, but it's way better. You will feel at home as if you are visiting the home of your favorite friend or relative, We've never felt so welcome, and feel like we have 2 new friends. The gardens in back where the hot tub is are fantastic any time of day, but especially at night when the lights come on and it really comes alive.

Thanks Don and Harry, see ya next time we visit your wonderful vibrant city.

We all know how tricky it is to choose the right place to call home away from home when we travel! I was in NoLa for my 50th with friends and Maison de Lagniappe proved to be ideal for our small group. Don and Harry are amazing hosts, and will make your visit one you will not forget. You will want to go back and you will want to stay there again. The location is perfect - close enough to the French Quarter but far enough from all the action, so that you will wake up in the morning and feel free to go to the kitchen, grab a freshly baked goodie and some coffee... go back to bed, or hang out and hear everything Don and Harry have to share.
A surprise birthday cake from them was the sweetest gesture I have ever encountered on vacation. Frenchman Street is an area not to be missed; amazing music and an authentic local experience. Do rent bikes and get out of the tourist zone. I hope to be able to go back soon.

After spending weeks reviewing options for lodging in New Orleans we finally settled on Maison de Lagniappe, a Bed-and-Breakfast historic home in the Creole neighborhood of Marigny. And we have no regrets! This is the perfect spot if you love live music, enjoy walking, and want to feel like you are staying in the real New Orleans.

Don and Harry (and of course Frank and the dogs) are wonderful hosts, and they answered all our questions to make our vacation one of the best ever. I even learned how to make pralines!

It's close enough to the French Quarter sights without having to deal with the noise, and it's much more interesting than the central business district. We were able to walk just about everywhere, including all our dinner spots and the Treme neighborhood to visit the Backstreet museum (of Mardi Gras Indian costumes). We even found a bike tour (Confederacy of Cruisers) that was conveniently located close by.

But most importantly, this is the neighborhood where a stretch of Frenchman Street houses a nightly selection of some of the best live music (IMO) you can see in New Orleans. We never had any problems getting to and from activities and concerts any time of the day or night.

Room Tip: If you are planning a long-term stay, ask about the suites with the sitting rooms and the discount f...
