House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 142 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Kevin and Wendy are great hosts, I must have stayed here at least 7/8 times, you wouldn't keep going back if it wasn't great would you.

Highly recommended, 2 mins to the Ferry, so 20 mins to the heart of The French Quarter, but dont forget "The Point" itself, Crown and Anchor 2 blocks away, Dry Dock 3 blocks and Old Point Bar 5/6 blocks (less than 5 mins) and of course Tout Suite Cafe.

We spent 7 nights in the Queen Room at the House of the Rising Sun and loved it! We enjoyed being close but removed from the action on the East Bank. We boarded our dog at the near by pet B&B and enjoyed taking him for daily walks in the neighborhood. Kevin and Wendy were helpful and pleasant. They even gave us our last night free because we were staying for a week. We would recommend the B&B to anyone planning a trip to New Orleans.

I spent two happy stays at the House of The Rising Sun in 2003 and 2010 while over from the UK attending music festivals. The rooms were very comfy, the atmosphere relaxed; and the locale on the Algiers side, a nice respite from the bustling French Quarter. Would recommend it very strongly to music fans in particular.

The neighborhood and vibe of this B&B is something every visitor to NOLA should get to experience: Algiers. It's one of the oldest settlements in New Orleans, its safe, mid-gentrification, and the people are friendly, mellow and hip. You get to feel like part of a neighborhood and are INCREDIBLY set up to go and conquer the city like a local.

It's a two block walk to the free ferry that runs nearly round the clock, you cruise across the river and land right in the heart of the action. It's so easy that some days we took the ferry 4-6 times. With the intensity of the city and the relaxation of Algiers we really felt like we had the best of both worlds.

Kevin's authenticity is on display from the moment you meet him: a guy you can trust and a character to boot.

Wendy's a bayou-bred, fun-loving momma that can really get you up to speed fast on this amazing city and the remarkably intricate good-times agenda.

We really lucked out. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

This the best bed and breakfast in Louisiana. I stayed there for over a year and loved every minute. The hosts are competent, accomodating as well as warm and cuddly. I have been back several times and would always stay there when visiting the Gulf Coase of LA.

This classic New Orleans 'shotgun-style' house was lovely and had all the accoutrements that make for a truly comfortable stay. The location is perfect... take a 5 minute walk to the free Mississippi River Ferry and land directly at the heart of the city. Back in the quiet and historically picturesque neighborhood of Algiers Point our room was very comfortable making for some good relaxation and sleep between very active days out and about in the "Big Easy".

From the moment we arrived to the day of departure we felt as if we had been visiting dear old friends. Kevin and his wife were extraordinary hosts and soo hugely accomodating whatever the request.

We will definately be visiting/lodging with our 'friends' upon our next visit to New Orleans!

This B&B was simply the best we have ever experienced in our many travels worldwide. Being from New Orleans now married to an Englishman & living in London, we visit N.O. often but this was our 1st time at this B&B. We wanted to stay somewhere convenient to the Quarter & Uptown without being in the middle of it all and this place was the perfect choice.
Our hosts, Kevin & Wendy were amazing wonderful people and made the experience of their sweet little B&B even more enjoyable by their hospitality. We could not have wished for a better experience than the one we had here and with these hosts. Staying here is like visiting your favourite friends or relatives but better. The B&B is set in a quiet, sweet little street in the quaint peaceful neighbourhood of Algiers Point, a stone’s throw from the levee and river, within walking distance of many sites, cafes and bars. It offers clean, nice sized rooms, well appointed with separate bath area, plenty of storage space for unpacking & settling in, (something we have found lacking in the past), privacy and most of all, a wonderful atmosphere. Kevin provided a delicious breakfast and perfect cup of coffee (or tea) each morning which you could opt to have on the back porch overlooking their garden while listening to some smooth New Orleans jazz or blues. Kevin & Wendy both offer a fountain of local knowledge, history, sites and entertainment, much of which you would be hard pressed to find in any guide book and if asked, can direct you to some amazing little out of the way places again, hard to find without insider knowledge. They offer this while still respecting visitors’ privacy which is a hard balance to obtain but they do so effortlessly.
If you are still hungry after the delightful breakfast offered (doubtful) or want a late brunch or early lunch they can direct you to a great little café just around the corner and across from the church where you will find most of the locals daily. There are also some amazing bars & cafes scattered around the area which you could easily spend your day in, sitting outside sipping something cold and tasting great local cuisine while chatting with the many colourful Algiers characters. Really, your entire trip to New Orleans could be spent enjoying lazy days strolling around the neighbourhood of Algiers soaking in the local charm or sitting out on the front porch swing of the B&B. The Dry Dock café just across the road from the ferry landing & river is one such place as is the Old Point Bar.
This B&B and the hosts are truly pleasant and perfect, thank you Kevin & Wendy for making our trip so memorable. We will definitely be back!
