Reviewed February 18, 2013

Making a reservation at the"House of the Rising Sun B&B"was disconcerting at first,not knowing what to expect,what with the song and all.But all apprehension was alleviated within the 1st 10minutes of arrival!A brightly colored,well-kept" shotgun double"was very welcoming.Kevin welcomed us in,showed us to our room and gave us the keys to the front door and bedroom door.Then he showed us our bathroom and invited us into the kitchen,where we were invited to have an Abita Amber Ale with our host and his constant companion"Boudin",a spunky puggle,who really likes treats from the breakfast table.At the rear of the house is a comfortable,covered patio with 2 small ponds with smaller and larger koi.Very relaxing place for conversation with Kevin and some of the other houseguests,who happened to be from Kevins homeland,England.There is a wonderful little English Pub a block and a half away,the Dry Dock Cafe,for great lunches and dinners,another block away and the FREE ferry to the foot of the French Quarter yet 1 more block away!Point Algiers is a great little community just across the "Big Muddy"from the hustle&bustle of the Big Easy.An easy walking tour can illuminate just how bright this neighborhood can shine!It is a great base to start and end busy,walking days.It was really nice to feel so comfortable in the B&B,like an old sweatshirt!Thanks so much Kevin,we had an exceptional time in" Nawlins" and we will definitely be back,hopefully,for a few Mardi Gras Parades!Plus we still have to meet Wendy,we hope she is feeling better! Til then,take care,Scott&Jeanne P.S. We have been unsuccessfully trying to re-create your fantastic breakfast,the meal that gave us the energy to see all that we did!Again,Thank You!

Room Tip: 2 of the 3 bedrooms have a bathroom en suite,the 3rd has a private bath down the hall.My girlfriend...

We stayed at this B&B January 10th-13th 2013 and found it very delightful. This B&B is located in Algier's Point and we found this to be a very safe neighborhood with some great places to have a drink or a meal. Breakfast was tasty. Kevin and Wendy are wonderful hosts. They have a family member named (Boudin) this dog was very friendly and made me miss my dogs from home. By the way, Kevin makes wonderful tasting tea. Thank you Kevin, Wendy and Boudin for making our first trip to New Orleans a great one! Sincerely, Terri & Craig

The opportunity to experience New Orleans for both the Superbowl and Mardi Gras parades was too good to resist and House of the Rising Sun was the ideal base to explore this fantastic city!

Kevin (along with sidekick Boudin) is a great host; knowledgable about the history of the area & the local music scene with plentiful breakfasts to start each day and comfy beds to recover from the hours of walking... The B&B is located in Algiers which is only a short ferry ride from the French Quarter but without the grief of crowded streets and noisy neighbours! The ferry leaves every half an hour and runs from 6 till midnight so there are no restrictions on experiencing all the New Orleans has to offer!

There are great places to eat within a few blocks of the B&B - Vine & Dine and Dry Dock Cafe serve great food with a real local flavour.

Kevin - thanks for a fantastic stay! Let us know when you've run out of British produce and we'll happliy arrange another trip to top up supplies - can't wait to be back and explore the inside of the Superdome!

Many thanks for the wonderful review and "Hobbes" looks stunning in his Saints scarf! Thank you for displaying the photos on our page, too. They are a great addition. It was a shame the Saints never made the Superbowl but the city sure gave a great party!! Hope to see you both some time soon.

This bed&breakfast is located in Algier's Point, across the Mississippi River: you park your car for free just in front of the main door, you walk three blocks to the free ferry running from 6am to midnight, and you are at the very beginning of the French quarter!
The bedroom we were given is chinese style, quiet, large, comfortable (superb mattress), with private bathroom across the guests' sitting room (not so convenient nightime).
Healthy breakfast, consisting in a tasteful fruit salad with cereals and local cakes (no eggs and bacon, despite Kevin's nationality!)
Do not miss a walking tour of Algier's Point: ask Kevin and/or visit the specific website.

Room Tip: Due to the location all rooms are quiet; inf you need it, ask for an ensuite.

This was our first experience in a B&B, and it won't be our last. Kevin was a gracious host and greeted us with a cold Abita which was very much appreciated after a 9.5 hour drive. He was very accommodating with all of our questions and gave us great tips on local venues for music. The accommodations were superb and I felt like I was back at home. Breakfast was phenomenal (healthy and filling). Boudin (the dog, not sausage) was a comical treat and always provided a warm welcome, especially if you had some cheese. The location on Algiers Point was easily accessed off the highway and the neighborhood was the kind of one you would like to grow up and reside in. Access to the city was convenient via a short walk and free ferry ride. The ride itself should be considered an attraction as the views were great, both day and night. My wife and I are looking forward to our next stay with Kevin and Wendy.

Many thanks for the wonderful review! Glad you enjoyed the ferry ride....that's why we live in Algiers Point....so convenient to the French Quarter but just far enough away from the madness. Look forward to seeing y'all next time....and there is always a cold Abita Amber in the fridge to greet you!!!

We really appreciated the quality, service, and style of the breakfast, the ability to read books in Kevin and Wendy's very full book shelves, the chance to chat with Kevin while drinking early morning coffee on the back porch, the seclusion of the back garden with all of its lovely plants, two fish ponds and porch swing, the quietness of the general vicinity, the ease of access to the free ferry across the Mississippi, the general hometown safe feel of Algiers Pt., Boudin!, the comfort of the bed and the ability to do laundry were all very welcoming touches. We have already booked another stay - this time for our son and his fiance's wedding - and we have 'sold' my sister on the idea of booking her stay at the House of the Rising Son as well.

With 160 review already as of this writing, it doesn't look like another is needed, but I'll chime in with my endorsement anyway.

The location is attractive. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood in Algiers, just across the river from New Orleans, which is reachable by a short walk followed by a quick, frequently running, and free ferry ride.

The house and the room we were in were nice and well kept. Proprietors Kevin and Wendy were personable, hospitable and helpful. Kevin served a nice breakfast of some sort of granola, fruit and yogurt with other stuff available too, and he stuck around for interesting conversation.

Be sure to check out their website at: http://www.risingsunbnb.com. "Kevin's story" shows him to be an interesting character, an accomplished amateur historian, and a very good writer. It's not surprising that he's interesting to talk to.
