“Home away from Home in NOLA”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I spent nearly a week with the folks at Green House Inn. I was there for business and a couple of days of pleasure. I found the Inn exactly as described. I arrived late (11pm) and there was lovely Sadie there to get me settled. A quick soak and swim, was delightful. The host, Jesse and assistant innkeeper Frank can make anything possible. Be aware this is an adult Inn and is a true oasis in the lovely lower garden district. You can easily get to the Quarter, but don't miss the great shops and places to dine on Magazine St. I will stay with them again.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor and you can walk out to the pool from your room.

From the moment you enter Green House Inn, your stress leaves your body! Tranquility surrounds you. Everyone was so helpful, Jesse, Frank, housekeeping staff, everyone! The saltwater pool and hot tub provided the perfect start and ending to every day. Our room, the Mandevilla was so comfortable and the view overlooking the pool was a postcard. Our only regret was not ghaving booked our room for an extra two days! Frank - thanks for saving the special moment by supplying the cork puller I left at home. We simply can't wait for the chance to return!

Room Tip: You simply can't get a bad room, each one has it's own reason for being special!

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast so we were unsure of what to expect. Upon arrival we were met by Jesse and his staff and they explained the house lay out to us. We were then provided with a lot of useful information about the local area and places to eat and also places to avoid.

The inn itself is a very nice place, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the atmosphere was one of just relaxing. After a long day of walking the pool was a nice place to just soak your feet and relax. In the courtyard you will be gazed upon by the prying eye of a blue macaw named Rio. He loves to whistle at you and play "peek a boo" from behind the bamboo. Breakfast was cereal, croissants, boiled eggs, oatmeal etc. A very simple and nice way to start the day. We found the staff very friendly and very helpful to assist us with anything we needed. The St. Charles Trolly is only about 3 blocks away and for $1.25 you can't beat the ride to Canal Street and the French Quarter. This allows you to leave your car in the secured parking area of the inn and not have to worry about parking tickets or vandals. Across the street from the inn is a local bar where you can enjoy a cocktail and a friendly atmosphere of the locals.

For us, this was a wonderful experience and a far cry from the some of the hotels we have stayed in while visiting New Orleans. We will most definitely be back, thanks to everyone there for a wonderful weekend and look forward to our next weekend getaway.

We realley lucked out and got a GREAT place! This was our first B&B and it did not disappoint! Jesse and Frank were GREAT! Nice and Informative! We stayed in the "Plumeria" room, the bed was COMFIE and the room was perfect for the two of us! It was nice having the option to stay there and have a small breakfast and the coffee was great (need to find out what kind of coffee that was) or to hang out in the hot tub after a long day of walking. The pool area is Fantastic and lives up to everything other reviewers have said about it. The trolley was a short walk away and a 5 minute ride to Canal street, very convenient if you plan on hitting the Quarters! If you brought your own vehicle, the parking is included and is behind a secure gate, this was nice especially since in the Quarters, parking is a nightmare. There is a nice bar across the street that makes awesome Mojitos and there are alot of great places down magazine street for food and fun! All of the places Jesse and Frank told us about were as promised! It was definetly nice to be close to the Quarters but equally as great being in a different part of town! It was quiet and peaceful and if there were any negative reviews on this place, they were very wrong!!!! We would most certainly stay here again!

I used The Green House Inn for all of the grooms family and guests to stay in when my son was married. It was perfect! Relaxing, beautiful tropical paradise with the feeling of being at home. Frank and Jesse were so welcoming and helpful. Great local tips and information. We were a brief walk to the streetcar and some delicious local places to eat. Very comfortable rooms with many choices for breakfast each day. Snacks always available. This was indeed the perfect place for us to stay. It met all my expectations and all our guests were just as pleased. Thank you!!

Room Tip: Not a bad room location in the house

Recently stayed here with my GF for a little vacation get away. The inn was fantastic and the inn keepers were very helpful with directions and food recommendations. The weather was very nice so we spent a lot of time by the pool. We loved the clothing optional aspect as we loved being able to go skinny dipping on the warm afternoon and then relax around the pool in the nude. My GF only went topless at first but once she others completely in the buff she joined in.

The restaurant across the road was great and served the best mojitos while even letting you leave with your drink. So we took them back to the pool with us. Would definitly recommend this place over any "bourbon st." hotel.

Leave your cares and worries behind when you visit. Great pool setting and great central location in the Garden District with close proximity to downtown and French Quarter. Friendly and helpful staff were there to cater to our needs. Had a hard time leaving when the time came. I highly recommend a trip here.
