“Warm and Friendly B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Stockade for the first night of our honeymoon, and we couldn't have made a better choice for a special stay in Baton Rouge. The Stockade is conveniently located near several excellent restaurants and set back from a historic and beautiful road in Baton Rouge. We stayed in the Rex Room, which we found very spacious and luxurious, and we would have thought so even without the champagne that we'd arranged to have in the room. Everything was delightful and done with a personal touch; a congratulatory note on the door greeted us when we first arrived in the evening.

Beyond the room, the inn itself was beautifully decorated, and it has a nice, comfortable seating area where guests can relax and chat communally. Our breakfast was quickly prepared and delicious, and we had the best conversations with a few of our fellow guests. Janice, the innkeeper, is as kind and hospitable as they come. We had an excellent stay at the Stockade, and we strongly recommend it to anyone looking for charming lodging in Baton Rouge.

Room Tip: The Rex Room is very spacious with a nice outdoor area that includes a swing.

We came to Baton Rouge for a getaway from the day to day stuff at home. We only live 45 min from the Stockade. We'll be back. The breakfast was GREAT and so was the hospitality. The room was great too! Dinner and a movie was a quick 5 min drive. Thanks again Janice!!

The Stockade and Janice the innkeeper were wonderful. The B&B is full of cozy decor, charm and fascinating art and furniture reflecting the heritage of the area. I was on business with early meetings so didn't eat breakfast there, but everything else was top drawer.

Driving in from a wet, stormy road, we were immediately greeted with the warm and coziness of the innkeeper, Janice. She allowed us to get to our beautiful Garden Room super fast and unwind. We fell in love with our room that had a very comfy bed and pretty decor. There was plenty to keep us occupied. Due to the nasty weather, we weren't able to enjoy the beautiful grounds of the Stockade. We were able to spend the time reading books that were found thru out the place and also watch current movies from their DVD collection. Lots of DVDs. Our room did have a jacuzzi bath tub, which we used. Even bath salts were provided. Overall, this place was amazing and would definitely come back soon. Thanks Janice for making our trip memorable. PS.. Eat at SAMMY'S !!! right across the street.

Room Tip: Garden room has it's own private balcony and jacuzzi tub.

Really nice place (building) but the owner is a bit hyper I feel. Was advised that "europeans" usually just have toast for breakfast. Not the case.. Had to kind of "sorce out" the owner at breakfast, did not feel too comfortable in her company.

Whoops, my bad, maybe I had one too many cups of our delicious Louisiana coffee that day! And, I believe this guest misunderstood my comment about the toast which was intended to be a joke. I serve full breafast to ALL guests usually offering a choice of options. I don't understand the "sorce out" comment, so I cannot respond to it. It is never my intent to upset or offend a guest, so I apologize to this guest if that was his perception.

My husband and I were gifted a 4 night stay in the "Blue Room". We loved it! Janice was very nice and the breakfasts were delicious. We definitely recommend this b&b to others!

Also if you are a True Blood fan, they filmed Bill and Sookies engagement here! Bill even signed her guest book!

Thank you for your kind words. I hope that you were able to relax and rekindle as was the hope of the couple who sent you here. I love the verse from Mark 6:31, "And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while." It is my sincere pleasure to provide a haven to accomplish this goal. Vaya con Dios, my friends.

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast, as we have always been a little suspicious of how good this type accommodation really could be. Well, all our worries were proven wrong, we were absolutely delighted by the experience! We felt so welcome at the Stockade, it was almost like coming home.

The rooms are so beautifully decorated, every room (we had two) had a unique vibe and "personality" to it, you can feel this place is run with love and passion. We immediately felt like we had lived in this place forever.

And while it was our first stay, it certainly won't be our last. We are already planning on exploring Louisiana more in-depth next year, and we will certainly chose the Stockade as our "home-base".

Breakfast was delicious too, especially the home-made pecan pie, we love that one! Also, be sure to check out Sammy's on the other side of the road, their po-boys are delicious, and you wouldn't believe that they also have file on the menu - a delicious one too! In Europe, you would need to visit a high-end restaurant to get that quality meat!

So a big thank you to Janice for the wonderful stay, we enjoyed ourselves, and we will be back as soon as possible.

PS: And a little notice to all Truebies out there, this is the place Bill Compton proposed to Sookie - and his actual signature is in the guest book too! Don't miss that!

Room Tip: Of the two rooms we had booked, our favorite was the Garden room - nice, quiet on the backside, with...
