The Stockade Bed and Breakfast was absolutely lovely. From the moment my husband and I walked in until we left, we felt at home and relaxed. This was our first experience at staying in a B & B, but it will not be our last. We have already recommended this place to family and friends. We met wonderful people and made treasured memories.

I am a physician in Austin, Texas and come to BR twice a year for meetings for the college of science. I stay here every time! (except once when it was full I was sad). Janice is a pleasure to be around and makes the greatest breakfast ever. Rooms are comfortable, the entire place is quiet and cozy. Very nice to be able to use the gym across the street as well. Anyone I know that travels to BR gets The stockade as a place to stay top of the list

This is a lovely, large home. Our room was enormous, with a fully-furnished living room area looking out to a garden. The room was stocked with beverages in the fridge, and there was cake in the dining room for a midnight snack. Breakfast was delicious--both the planned menu and the made-to-order eggs. The homemade cranberry jam was a nice touch for Thanksgiving. Janice is a welcoming host.

I came to stay at the Stockade Bed and Breakfast based on the glowing reviews I found online, and I was not disappointed. Janice was a professional and courteous woman who helped answer all of our questions with true southern hospitality. We were given advanced notice of a party to take place, and as promised, she helped to wind down the festivities so our sleep would not be disturbed. The breakfasts provided each day were fabulous as well. We had a fantastic stay and look forward to being back on our next trip to Baton Rouge.

Janice has always made it easy for me to look forward to coming back to Baton Rouge. Business becomes pleasure when I can begin and end the day at Stockade B & B. Each trip (there have been many, by now) I discover something new and delightful about the house, the people or the neighborhood. (PS this is the first internet review that I have ever done. Seriously.)

This was our second stay, this time for six nights. Pleasant, quiet surroundings, gentle hospitality and unobtrusive care. Nice surprise.... Janice will lend paper maps of the Baton Rouge area for the digitally challenged, or anyone who wants the "big picture" you can't get from your GPS device. We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed at the Stockade B&B for 4 nights this August. It is a wonderful property! The room was tastefully decorated, as is in fact the whole house. And we were well look after too. No question was too much and the breakfast different every day and always wonderful. Our main host was Steve, and he is the perfect person for the job. Friendly and always interested in a chat. When there was an issue with warm water, we were offered a bottle of wine for the (very minor) inconvenience. Such a nice touch. While booking a room, Janice was extremely helpful in selecting the best room (given that I am a light sleeper). And indeed the room was very quiet. I will definitively stay at the Stockade again if I am in Baton Rouge next. I highly recommend it.

We travel back and forth from Alabama to Texas due to having a second home and have found Baton Rouge to be the halfway point. The last four times we have stayed at the Stockade and because of the comfort and service we have experienced, have made this our home between our homes. The location is convenient for us and the atmosphere is much preferred to the commercial options available. The owner and staff are all great and make you feel "special" by staying at the Stockade. The rooms are large, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is always great and snacks are left in the dinning area should you desire. For LSU fans, the Stockade is located on Highland Road which goes into the campus as well as there is an exit for Highland Road off the Bridge if you are traveling from the West to East into Baton Rouge. If you are seeking a low stress place to stay, this is it. It is like being at home.
