In a city as lively and partying as New Orleans, it is great to be able to retreat in a pleasant quiet, yet historically interesting neigbourhood on the other side of the river! Kevin and Wendy are great hosts, with lots of (music) tips for a nice stay. Dog Boudin is friendly, even for people like me who don't love dogs. The room is perfect. And: halfway on a 4 week trip and already getting used ( a bit) to the US breakfast, it was especially great to have a breakfast full of fruit, yoghurt etc. Best breakfast of my trip!
There's only ONE thing to make this B&B even better: return of full operation of the ferry! It really is unbelievable that such an obvious ferry connection is considered too expensive / not profitabel... Now I was forced to train my (poor) "taxi-holding" skills when going back to the B&B.
