We stayed here for a weekend getaway away from the kids. Rooms are very nice and the B&B is well located next to several restaurants and shopping. Parking is onsite and ample (they have a big circular driveway with plenty of room.) There are many nice plants and pictures and it has a fun atmosphere. Breakfast was yummy. Janice took a request for french toast with fruit on the side, and it was delicious. This was the second time we stayed there and we would definitely stay again.

This was my second stay at the Stockade and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Baton Rouge. I have stayed in and loved the Welch Room, which is in the upstairs front of the house.The house and grounds are beautifully maintained. The service and food is excellent . Janice is a lovely hostess who provides a very clean and neat place to stay. The furnishings are absolutely beautiful and tasteful in each of the rooms as well as the entire house. The house contains amazing antiques and fascinating works of art. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The most important thing as well is that Janice and her home provide a peaceful haven for guests. You would never know you were in the middle of Baton Rouge and on a busy street. It is a serene and calm setting that can be enjoyed at all times of the day. I look forward to going back there to stay as soon as I can.

Our experience was very relaxing. The staff accomodated dietary needs. Everyone was pleasant. The bed was very comfortable, even for my bad hip. Available snacks helped out late night munchies. As an older home, its well built walls blocked out all outside noises, even road traffic. We had very pleasant conversation with the owner and other guests in the morning. I highly recommend this place.

This is where my fiancee and I spent our engagement night. It was everything I wanted and then some.

Beautiful place to stay - in a quiet road within a short driving distance of Baton Rouge's centre. Eating places within walking distance (Sammy's was good). The Stockade has a collection of interesting art, good selection of books, and interesting decoration. The baby grand piano was also a big plus point for me. Breakfast was interesting and filling.
