“Beautifully restored post-Katrina”
Reviewed April 4, 2006

If this is what the B&B experience is all about, then I'll won't be staying at a hotel in New Orleans again. Jess is an excellent host, a terrific cook and a fastidious housekeeper and decorator. We stayed in the Eurasian suite (which was had two separate bedrooms) which was an excellent way to share costs.
The owner has gone to extraordinary efforts to restore the building after Katrina and except for some exterior upgrades the B&B is like-new (well, for a 100+ year old house !)

My wife and I stayed in the North American Cottage during July 2005 and really enjoyed our visit. It is really well designed/decorated and very clean / fresh. Jess is a nice host and his breakfast offerings are good as well. His grounds are secure feeling and we hope to return someday.
