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!

Enjoy a free welcome drink in "Jelly Roll's Jumpin' Juke Joint" (our covered back porch) or relax there in the evening on the swing bench with a glass of wine or local beer. A healthy breakfast is provided each morning. A delight for Blues and Jazz fans! Visit our local bars, restaurants, coffee shops and stores and mix with the friendly locals. Or walk, jog, cycle, run along the Mississippi River levee and enjoy the most spectacular view of the French Quarter, day and night.
