This historic Inn offers timeless elegance and warm, friendly, hospitality. Tim and Debbie will bend over backwards to do anything they can to make your stay comfortable. Our room (Azalea) was charming, clean, and well appointed. The pillow top mattress was extremely comfortable and inviting. Both mornings I had a delicious gourmet breakfast thoughtfully prepared by Debbie and Tim. Without hesitation, I give the Woodridge B&B of Louisiana my highest recommendation. Diane
My husband and I eloped at Woodridge B&B and it was more incredible and magical getting married there than any other place I could ever have imagined. The kindness and thoughtfulness from Debbie and Tim was truly heart-warming. They provided us with a perfect and simply gorgeous location to be married at, a wedding cake, champagne, photographs of the wedding and countless other thoughtful touches which made our wedding day turn into a fairy tale. I’m usually not all mushy or overly sentimental but I cannot begin to describe how beautiful the property is or how gracious, considerate and enchanting Tim and Debbie are. They have every convenience you can think of, delicious food and they possess a kindness that you can’t even begin to describe in words. They even accommodated my 18 month old daughter, who has been testing her boundaries, with ease giving her a special breakfast and making us feel right at home. We stayed at the Magnolia and it was very spacious with a large bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom as well. There is an indoor staircase as well as an outdoor staircase to the rooms so guests may come and go as they please. My sister stayed in the Rose Room which was really beautiful also and had a rocking chair which was perfect for my sister to rock my daughter in while she was babysitting for us.To pass this paradise of a B&B up would be a true mistake. We are going back for our anniversary and many more times in the future!
Not only was the place beautiful and very relaxing but Mr.Tim and Mrs. Debbie made us feel right at home. Not to mention the blue berry French toast was absolutely amazing. Will be back! Ryan & Sandi
I recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for a special time with the person they love. Beautiful place!!! The wonderful people, and personal service set this place high above the standards of good. I'm so pleased with the wedding ceremony, and the fact that basically I just had to show up and they had everything planned. Definitely 5star status
This was our first time at a B&B. I could tell right away that Tim & Debbie truly enjoy what they do. Debbie's breakfast is wonderful. She cooks w/love. Tim has a story for all occasions that will keep you in stitches. I'm not sure that another B&B can meet our high expectations that Tim & Debbie have set at Woodridge. Thanks for a wonderful Time. Richard & Darla David.
This B&B has it all! Great location - quiet, beautiful, peaceful, but close to beaches, entertainment, tourism, history, outdoors... you name it they've got it. And Tim and Debbi can either give you info or find it for you in quick order... Great food wonderful warm friendly atmosphere, just wish we'd had a few more days to stay and enjoy more.
My daughter and her military fiance were looking for a pretty outdoor setting for a small venue wedding. Woodridge was absolutely perfect!!!!! Debbi and Tim made sure everything was perfect and acted as the wedding planner, entertainment cooridinator, cake and beverage server for the day. They relieved so much stress! A beautiful bridal suite was provided for the bride, lady attendants and mothers. All of this for such an amazing affordable price. Thank you Thank you Tim and Debbi for sharing your beautiful home and gardens. You both will always be remembered fondly for your sweet southern hospitality. Many friends and family were very impressed and expressed how beautiful of a ceremony and venue it was at your home and gardens. They said they will highly recommend it to other friends and family in the future. I hope these recommendations bless you both as you blessed our family by making Mr. and Mrs. Herron's wedding day a truly special, beautiful and blessed day.
While in Slidell from 4/5-4/18/12 I stayed at the Woodridge B&B. My accommodations were very comfortable, clean, and quiet. After returning each evening I enjoyed sitting on the spacious upstairs porch outside my room in their quiet neighborhood. Tim and Debbi were very helpful, gracious hosts and their breakfast always delicious. The Woodridge was a fabulous choice and is now the only place I will stay whenever I visit Slidell. Incidentally, my work has me constantly traveling worldwide, and the Woodridge rates at the top. Just hated to leave....Cheers!
FYI -- don't depend on your GPS to get you there; but Debbi is an excellent guide over the phone with directions. We stayed in the Live Oaks room and what a view we had of the grounds. I was able to sit outside on the balcony and be on the computer to enjoy the evening. What a glorious place and our room was comfortable as well as beautiful. Great nights sleep and a terrific breakfast. We had arranged for them to book the Honey Island Swamp Tour, which is only 5 minutes from Woodridge. We even got discounts and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Really a great tour and I would suggest it to all. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home and be such gracious hosts. I would come back anytime!
Cozy and friendly! Good Southern hospitality. Unbelievable food. GREAT beds, so comfortable. B&B owners do not come SWEETER. Extremely familiar with the region, no question goes unanswered. They roll out the red carpet for each guest. So quaint that you would not even consider staying anywhere else!
My experience at the Woodridge B&B was phenomenal! The Fotsches are warm, friendly people who genuinely want your stay to be as pleasant as possible. As a single woman traveling along, I felt safe and secure here, yet I did not feel cooped up or restricted. I was in town for a work-related conference, and I must say it was wonderful to come "home" to Woodridge each evening, and after a good night's sleep and fabulous breakfast (different every day, yet always prepared according to my personal tastes and preferences!), I felt prepared to face the day ahead. The B&B is off the beaten path, yet close to the interstate for easy access to anything you need or want to do. Debbi and Tim were full of suggestions and recommendations for food, activities, sights, and experiences for all preferences. I plan to go back again and bring friends for a wonderfully relaxing getaway!
This was our second stay at Woodridge B&B and we hope it won't be our last! Debbi and her husband are wonderful hosts and their breakfasts are fantastic. It's just a couple of minutes from I-59 and for just a few dollars more than the chain motels along the interstate, you can stay in a gracious home and eat a real breakfast.
This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. As soon as we walked in the door Debbie made us feel right at home. Woodridge B&B is full of southern charm and hospitality. Tim and Debbie went out of their way to always acknowledge us as we came and went and always asked how our day was or if we needed recommendations for anything. The food was great and the bed was more comfortable than ours at home. It is an easy drive to New Orleans, the Gulf Coast, or Biloxi Mississippi. There are numerous resturants located within a couple miles that will appeal to a variety of tastes. I highly recommend staying with Tim and Debbie at Woodridge B&B and will certainly do so next time we are in the area.
Woodbridge B&B is beautiful and relaxing. The hospitality is outstanding and unmatched by any other facility where we have stayed. Our first trip to Louisiana was for a job interview. Tim and Debbi were very knowledgable and provided us with helpful insights into the culture and life style we could expect. After accepting the new position, we chose to stay with Tim and Debbi again for more assistance on locations to live.
This was the last leg of our trip and wanted a nice relaxing place within a short ride to the French Quarter. Woodridge is what I found and what a find. A wonderful room with very comfortable bed and surroundings. Loved the balcony in the evening. Met some wonderful guests. Breakfast was beyond words. Hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and provided great advice.
Tim and Debbi are wonderful! This past March, my husband and I had the distinct pleasure of renewing our vows at the Woodridge B&B. When we arrived, Debbi presented me with a beautiful bridal bouquet of mixed roses. The ceremony that followed was just as requested, simple and elegant. Next, we were treated to a romantic dinner of Steak Dianne prepared to perfection by “chef” Debbie. Our “wedding night” was spent in the Magnolia Suite, a comfortable mix of romance and Louisiana charm. Each morning we were greeted in the dinning room by the wonderful scents of fresh coffee and home cooking. When we finally tore ourselves away, the Fotches surprised us with a wedding CD filled with photos they had taken at our “Wedding”. Thank you Debbi and Tim for making our second wedding so memorable!
We really enjoyed our stay with Debbi & Tim. From the moment I spoke with Debbi on the phone, I felt like I was talking to an old friend. Debbi & Tim are great hosts and embodie southern hospitality at its best and Debbi is a great cook. Karla & Mike S. Houston, TX
My husband and I and two daughters have been staying at the Woodridge Bed and Breakfast during our annual trips to Slidell for the past 7 years – since my youngest was a baby. From the very beginning, the owners, Debbi and Tim, made us feel welcome and accommodated our every need. As the years went by and the girls grew, our needs would change, and Debbi and Tim were ready to meet any special request we sent their way. The accommodations have always been incredibly spacious, very clean, and the breakfasts are outstanding. Debbi and Tim have become our extended family and the Woodridge Bed and Breakfast is our home away from home. We wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else during our trips to Slidell.
My sister and I have been staying here for so many years that we can not remember how many years it has been. We would never consider staying anywhere else when we come to Slidell / Pearl River to visit our family. From the minute you walk through the front door until the time you leave you are made to feel more like a family member than a customer. This is the place you come to when you want to relax, be spoiled, and wake up to a home-cooked Southern Gourmet Breakfast. The rooms are immaculate and the beds are so comfortable that it is hard to get up in the mornings. You will soon forget that New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast are only minutes away after relaxing on their balcony for a few minutes. The grounds are beautifully well kept and you will enjoy the peaceful solitude of the surrounding area. If you want a true peaceful retreat at a great value come to Woodridge Bed & Breakfast. You will not be disappointed.

When we needed a place for family to stay near us we immediately chose Woodridge for their stay. The grounds are very serene and relaxing. They raved for days after the stay. Our family was celebrating a High School Graduation so as part of the stay we booked the pavillion for an after party. We also took advantage of the pool the next day. Tim and Debbi are the most wonderful hosts. They did not hesitate to offer to accomodate special needs of the group. The family raved about the breakfasts every day which made me jealous that I wasn't staying there also.
