Two friends and I stayed in Schuyler and David's wonderful b & b over our spring break, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our hosts were wonderfully attentive and helpful - they even provided us with a detailed list of dining recommendations that we consulted for the majority of our trip. My friends and I came without a set itinerary, and Schuyler and David went above and beyond to suggest things we could do and see, tailored specifically to our interests. The room was sizeable, filled with interesting trinkets and lovely books, and everything was just spotless. The room even came with a microwave and a mini fridge, which was a surprise. The entire b & b is very quiet, relaxing and charming, with a lovely pool in the back and a seating area. The b & b itself was very well-located and just a stone's throw away from the French Quarter. Breakfast always came with interesting breads and all kinds of spreads, fresh coffee, milk, juice, yoghurt ... just a wonderful spread to wake up too. All in all, one of the best experiences I've had in a b & b. You really feel at home here, and its a fantastic way to see New Orleans.
