On our recent visit to Baton Rouge we stayed at this beautiful inn. We were welcomed by Janice with a glass of wine and a tour of the property, including the Nature trail around the grounds. A refrigerator of cold drinks outside our room was a welcome perk. We enjoyed meeting the other guests at the family-style gourmet breakfast offered each morning. The inn is beautifully appointed, very comfortable and clean; the staff very welcoming. A gem!

My husband and I spent two nights at The Stockade and couldn't have been more pleased. Janice was warm and cheerful as we arrived and helpful throughout our stay with her. Her suggestions for dinner out were wonderful. Our room was beautiful and relaxing - just what we needed. Breakfast was so good we never got around to eating lunch. We are hoping to get back to stay with Janice again.

My husband travelled on business all his life and stayed in some very nice B&B's in New England. The Rex Room at the Stockade was the most spacious accomodation he has ever been in. We loved the room, the windows, the outside patio, everything. The owner and her staff are so enjoyable and the breakfast is outstanding. The inn is conveniently located to good resatuarants,the highway and about 20 mins from the airport. It is a must!

We decided to have a last minute romantic get-way together before returning to the realities of life! My husband had just returned from a 9 day trip to Panama, and we were on our way back from New Orleans. We found the Stockade, and we are so glad that we did. We reserved the Blue Room. It is so beautiful and comfortable. The view is gorgeous! We definitely recommend the Stockade for a much needed escape!
