We stayed at Cindy's beautiful B&B in November. She was a superb hostess, who is the physical embodiment of Southern hospitality. She shared her vast knowledge of the area including dining options, music venues, quality historical tours and excellent directions to get us to everything safely. Her delicious breakfasts included coffee, fruit and a main dish (almond french toast and collard greens and ham quiche were fantastic!) Her home is beautiful, immaculate and welcoming. Our room was quiet, spacious and romantic. We loved all the old cypress wood details. It is a short, easy, fun walk to the French Quarter. We almost didn't write a review, because we want to keep this gem a secret, but it's just too good not to share!
