An old New Orleans experience, opulent & elegant. A comfortable mix of history and Southern hospitality. Antebellum Guest House is a classic Greek Revival, dating back to the late 1830's. Located just outside the French Quarter on historic Esplanade Avenue, known for it gorgeous architecture and live-oak trees.

This was my fourth visit to the Antebellum Guest House and it was ,as always ,a delightful experience. Keith and Art provide an opportunity to step back in time and experience a quieter and more elegant period in New Orlean history. Their home and furnishings are representative of the Antebellum years, and Keith’s 3 course breakfasts are true to the original recipes. While the house is walking distance to the French Quarter and to Frenchmen Street, the house is quiet and the backyard is an oasis of local plants, Spanish Moss, and , if desired, a hot spa. For me the house has become a” home away from home” where I can learn more about the architecture of the Garden District, the fantastic history of the different cemeteries , visit an atypical early plantation, and tour the ecosystems and shrimp boats to the south. Keith can offer a variety of suggestions for first time( or fourth time) visitors.There is always another discovery around the corner. I recommend this gem of a B&B to anyone looking for a different New Orleans experience.

The house is a lovely 1830s home a ten minute walk from Frenchmen street and the quarter. Decorated with many antiques and family heirlooms. There is a bit of faded elegance to much of it, but that’s part of the old world charm. There is lovely private patio with a hot tub. Keith is a lovely host, warm and welcoming, who has I think that old world elegance that befits the house. His breakfasts are not only delicious but interesting as he introduces historic recipes into the mix. He is also knowledgeable about New Orleans from years living there and conversing with him over breakfast (if he isn’t too busy serving) can give you a unique perspective of the evolution of the city. The personal touches, historic charm, patio, breakfast, and location make this a great place to stay to see New Orleans.

We adored our stay! The home is incredibly beautiful and full of antiques and history. Keith, the owner, is the best of hosts! The courtyard is absolutely magical and everything that the French Quarter has to offer are within a 20 minute walk. There was an electrical issue a few days before our stay, and while it was being fixed, Keith upgraded us to a larger room. We can’t say enough good things about this wonderful place. We will definitely be back!

This is my 3rd visit to the Antebellum Guest House and my first time since the Covid pandemic started in March 2020. I came back primarily to experience the beauty of this fully restored historical home and to visit with Keith and Art, the hospitable owners /innkeepers. My previous visits transported me to a very different era and I have come to appreciate the rich history of this area. Each return visit builds on the previous one.The house is still unbelievably beautiful and the Antebellum breakfasts that Keith prepares each morning are some of the best meals I have had in New Orleans. The house is within walking distance of both the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street, but as I sit in the garden writing this ( see pictures) listening to the wind chimes and watching the Spanish moss sway in the breeze, I am hard pressed to go anywhere. This guest house is indeed a hidden gem and I could not imagine staying anywhere else.

Couldn't be nicer. Keith T. is a gracious host w/out being intrusive or overbearing.. The house is beautiful, furnished w/ gorgeous antique furniture, lamps and mechanical musical instruments. Great location, 15 min. walk to Frenchmen St., Bourbon St., Jackson Sq. & French Market. Handy small grocery store across the street. Amazing breakfasts based on 1830-era recipes. Memorable and very highly recommended.

My wife and I have stayed with Keith and Art many times since 2002 for Jazzfest in April/May. We even had a 40 person wedding party in their courtyard which is spectacular, and one of the last properties of its' kind so close to the quarter with a usable courtyard. The rooms are well appointed and enchanting. They have a beautiful dining room in which the breakfasts are legend. Keith is quite a cook and presents the cuisine of 1800's New Orleans with panache. He serves it with homebrew coffee all in an elegant setting. We have booked the entir3e house for 7 guests or just one room for the two of us on different trips. Breakfast is kind of the point, so make sure you are the type of traveler who prefers a good start to your day with a full breakfast.

Thanks to arrangements made by a close friend, I was lucky to be able to spend 5 days at Antebellum. This amazing B&B is located in a historic home walking distance from the French Quarter (close enough to walk but far enough to be away from the crowds and chaos). Walking in is like entering another century with beautiful antiques, paintings and furniture. Our rooms were part of a small suite with living room and kitchen; very quiet and comfortable. A lovely courtyard provided a quiet space to sit amongst beautiful plantings and be serenaded by water. Each morning we were treated to a 3 course breakfast created by Keith from historic recipes- five star meals and the best food we had in New Orleans! Our hosts, Keith and Art, were warm and welcoming in addition to being incredibly knowledgeable. They were able to give us a feel for the heart of New Orleans, historically and present, and provided us with great recommendations for restaurants and tours. Again, Antebellum is an amazing place to stay!

This is my second stay at the Antebellum Bed and Breakfast and it was as remarkable as my first visit. I reunion once a year with a close friend and knew this would be a perfect location for us to meet. Last year the owner, Keith Teachout, introduced me to a time period in New Orleans that I knew little about. From the moment I walked into the Antebellum , I was surrounded by authentic furnishings from the pre Civil War time period. The interest ,love, and respect that Keith has for this time period is transmitted to guests ,not only through the beautiful rooms and garden, but through the 3 course 5 star breakfasts that follow authentic recipes and are served in the beautiful dining room on traditional china. The Antebellum is walking distance from the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street, but on quiet Esplanade, away from the tourist noise and commotion. Keith and Art are warm and welcoming hosts and I look forward to another visit in the near future.

If you want to step into a bygone era of charm and elegance, this is the bed and breakfast to visit. We started our day with a 3 course breakfast, a charming history of the food and times of New Orleans that fortified the body and soul. Close enough to walk to the French Quarter for a leasurely stroll through the shops and sights and sounds of a beautiful city.

Best New Orleans three course breakfast served in 19th C. splendor! Innkeepers are awesome- their attention to detail shows and Keith makes sure guests are comfortable. Quiet courtyard with hot tub is a private retreat. Great value!
