This property has the best of all worlds! It's location is close enough to the fun on Royal and Bourbon Streets in the French Quarter venues, but far enough away to have a peaceful night in a very relaxing home away from home. It is just blocks away from the emerging "new jazz music scene" of Frenchmans Street, where at night you can be lulled to sleep by just the slightest sounds of some of the best jazz music around.
But the real treat is the owner of La Maison, John. He is a natural at being a host, and cooks breakfast tastiest enough to want seconds or thirds, and hardy enough to get you through you days adventures before having to stop off at one of the wonderful restaurants just a few blocks away. And he has the most wonderful sense of humor and stories; making it difficult to leave the property as you want to hear more! And, his advice on where to go, how to get there, and what adventures fit your personal needs ensured that our first visit to his property won't be our last.
The room rates are absolutely more than reasonable. I checked literally dozens of properties from hotels to fellow B&Bs, and for the value, La Maison stands out as your best bet.
We are already planning a return trip back there in April for the Jazz festival!
