“Fantastic place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

My wife and I just stayed in La Maison B&B for our second excursion to New Orleans. We had a fantastic stay. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast was prepared by John on day one and TJ on day two, and both meals were great. We were given any assistance and information we needed, as well as advice on places to check out based on our interest. The location is centered walking distance between Frenchman and the active part of Bourbon, so as long as you don't mind walking, it's a great spot. We'll definitely be checking on availability next time we are in NOLA!

On behalf of both TJ and myself, we thank you! As you know, we planned to be out of town during your visit and TJ was going to take over but our trip was cancelled and you were stuck with me anyway for part of the time! :-) Seriously, it's wonderful that we have Joi and Thyago working with us...guests love them. Thanks for the nice comments and we hope to see you in New Orleans again soon.

We have been to New Orleans several times, and this is our favorite place to stay by far! Perfect location close to everything, but on a quiet street. Lovely rooms, and John makes a wonderful breakfast every morning. John also has great recommendations and information about what is going on around the City, we really enjoyed talking to him over breakfast. I almost hate to recommend La Maison- hopefully it won't be booked next time we want to visit :-). Thank you John!

Thanks, Brooke, for your wonderful review of our property. It was a pleasure meeting you and we're thrilled that you enjoyed our Bourbon at Esplanade location. It really is ideal, isn't it. We're also glad you enjoyed breakfast. We're constantly changing the menu to keep guests happy and we're nice to hear that it's working for us. Come back and visit soon!

Was not sure what to expect but was delighted. Ended up there because the hotels were full. Now I will look at B&B's first. Great room and fab. breakfast. 2 blocks to some amazing (out of the way) restaurants and 4 blocks to trolley. Easy walk to center of quarter. Fri am trash day. No need to set your alarm.

Yay, we've converted a hotel guy! So glad you chose us for your first B&B experience and that we made a believer out of you. Thanks so much for the kind words and please come back! (And yes, the City's trash pickup on Friday mornings is quite early, isn't it?!?!)

We just returned from another stay here. It was our 5th Mardi Gras there and wouldn't choose any other place in New Orleans. We are from New Orleans and have stayed in many places. None match up to our stays at this B&B. This year we had friends in the other 3 rooms, which made for a wonderful time. John and Dewey have just renovated the courtyard and it is a beautiful addition. The perfect place to gather, have a glass of wine and relax! John is a great host, not to mention the breakfast's that he cooks! My favorite new menu item this year is his Dirty Rice with eggs! For those of you not familiar with Dirty Rice, It's a Louisiana favorite and worth a trip to this B&B to taste it! Another fantastic stay, and don't even think about trying to book it next year at Mardi Gras, we've already done it!!!!

Room Tip: We like the owner's suite, but all are good!

Great B&B! John runs this as a FIRST CLASS business. Great location. Clean, (Thanks TJ and Mrs TJ). Great bed. Can't think of one thing to complain about. Quiet back yard to relax in. Well appointed. Safe short walk to Frenchmen street. Homey decoration.

Room Tip: Owners suite is Super Nice with a sitting room, but not necessary if traveling with a group because...

More great reviews from more nice Canadians! :-) Thank you so much for staying with us and for recognizing Joi and Thyago, who watched the B&B for a couple of days while I was off at a college reunion. I'm thrilled that they did a good job for you! Also, you were one of the first guests to enjoy the new courtyard space and I enjoyed hearing your comments at breakfast about how much your group enjoyed sitting outside and sipping on a bit of wine here and there.

Please come back soon!

We just returned a couple days ago after spending a week at La Maison. Our experience was spot on, from our great balcony, floor to ceiling windows, providing a great breeze at night, and overall comfort. I agree with that others have said - you are close enough to all the excitement and craziness, if that is what you want, but when you come "home" you have none of that - far enough removed where you can be guaranteed a great nights sleep.

John was a great host, and extremely accomodating.

We are already looking into returning next year!!! I cannot say enough good things about our stay here - everything we had hoped for, and then some.

We are thrilled that you had a great time at La Maison Marigny and in New Orleans. We make great efforts to ensure that everyone is comfortable during their visit and your review is a nice recognition of our attempts.

New Orleans is a wonderful city, indeed, even when the weather is less cooperative as it was all throughout January and February! I'm really excited that you've rebooked for the Carnival timeframe in 2015 and look forward to seeing you again!

What a great place to stay ! ! ! !
We had a ball in this beautiful, gracious home! Our suite had a special little sitting room across the front of the house, a large bedroom and great bath with lots of hot water. We loved relaxing on the front porch in the afternoon with a glass of wine and chatting with the occasional folks walking down the street. John is so very organized and helpful. John has a special booklet to give us a little history of New Orleans, the house and some of the neighborhood of Faubourg Marigny. John also developed a map with restaurants and places of interest that was spot on. Frenchman Street is wonderful for live jazz clubs as well as young group buskers showing their 12 piece brass band chops and of coarse great food ( my favorite was the Three Muses).
We had some of the best food, both in the neighborhood and a bit further away. We would not have found these "in spots" without John's insight.
Easy walking distance to the French Quarter. Also very good transportation around town. No need for a car at all.
Thank you so much, John for sharing your fav's with us. We will be back for our next anniversary.
P.S. Can't wait to see what the new backyard looks like

Wow, what a very nice review. Thanks! We've had lots of Canadians visit us this winter and it's so nice to hear from you. I'm glad our custom maps helped you navigate the neighborhood a bit better and that you got to meet some of the neighbors, too!

It was unfortunate that we had some weather-related construction ongoing while you were in New Orleans but the new courtyard is now open and is jawdropping, according to friends and repeat guests. Please come back and see it!
