House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We have stayed at historic houses in the Quarter on Esplanade and Chartres as well as several hotels. Usually the noise from the street and even adjoining rooms is annoying. This B&B is perfect! Quiet neighborhood and very nice accommodations. The host was terrific. Very knowledgeable about history and music. The breakfasts were just right: fresh fruit with Greek Yogurt and Granola and fresh baked croissants from the bakery a couple blocks away. We also enjoyed visiting with the other guests, one couple from Toronto and the other from Wisconsin. Definitely will stay here again!

My husband and I spent three delightful days here, enjoying the welcome of Kevin and Wendy's charming home. We stayed in the middle room with the very comfortable queen bed and never heard a noise from neighbors. The bathroom was a bit small but to be expected from an older home. We had luxurious thick towels, a bountiful shower, and little toiletries if we forgot to pack something.
Kevin prepared breakfast that we ate in a charming dining room. The common/living room had TV, soft sofas and an eclectic array of memorabilia from their interests and travels. Kevin shared stories reflecting his passion for NOLA, jazz and the history of Algiers Point, all reminding me this is why I chose a bed and breakfast. The innkeepers make the stay.
Listen to Kevin's advice and you won't go wrong. PLUS, the home's proximity to the free ferry gave us the opportunity to cross the big river 2x a day. We landed on the other side at the base of Canal St., ready to explore this wonderful city on foot, bus and trolly.

House of the Rising Sun and Algiers Point deliver the best in local style, with international flair. My husband took me to NOLA to celebrate a milestone birthday that I'll never forget, thanks in large part to the hospitality of our hosts Kevin and Wendy. They had excellent tips on food, music, and atmosphere at any number of places - on both sides of the river - where we enjoyed the company of locals. New Orleans is one of the friendliest cities ever, and this B&B is the ideal home base.
This trip was only a long weekend, but next time we'll be sure to allow more time to take the walking tour of the historic neighborhood of Algiers Point as outlined in the historical society's brochure, co-authored by Kevin.
Having a pint at the English pub with our hosts (not sure if Kevin or Boudin was more excited about going to the pub!), we truly felt welcome - Where else but in New Orleans?

Kevin and Wendy have created a wonderful environment for experiencing New Orleans. Set just across the river from the French Quarter in quaint historic Algiers Point. The rooms are very very comfortable. Their puggle, Boudin makes everyone feel at home..he loves to sit with you in the swing on the backporch. Anything you want to know about New Orleans music, just ask Kevin...anything you want to know about Cajun culture, just ask Wendy. As a couple, they are indeed the perfect hosts. I have stayed in many places in New Orleans, but House of the Rising Sun beats them all. It will always be my favorite.

We highly recommend staying at the House of the Rising Sun B&B. The price was good. The locale is excellent- convenient to the ferry, and Historic Algiers is very charming and safe. The house and room were very nice. Kevin, Wendy and Boudin were friendly, hospitable and helpful. Loved getting to know them as well as the other guests at the breakfast table. Grab a 'to go' drink at the Dry Dock Cafe, jump on the ferry, and enjoy the French Quarter!
We will definitely stay there again!

My husband and I stayed at the House of the Rising sun for three nights at the end of December 2011. Our bedroom and bathroom were very clean and our bed was super comfortable. Every time we got back from a long day in New Orleans our bed was freshly made and our bathroom cleaned up. The B&B is 5 minutes walk from the ferry which takes another 7 minutes to cross the river into the French Qaurter. The ferry takes off every 30 minutes and is free for people and $1/car. The neighborhood was very cute and we even finished one of our nights at the pub down the street. Kevin was very welcoming and we loved the breakfast. Most of all, Boudin, the little pup was a true joy to come home to! The value for the price is outstanding! Thank you for the wonderful stay.
P.S. We miss Boudin!!!

My wife and I recently stayed at this B&B and found it to be clean and comfortable and a great choice overall. Its location on Algiers Point made it easy to get to from the french quarter and downtown NO using the free ferry. The neighborhood is quiet and has some good local restaurants. The owners are very nice and offer a much appreciated local perspective on everything the area has to offer.

Room Tip: If an adjoining bathroom is important, opt for the queen room.
