We had a lovely three night stay in November, 2013. The Uptown location was great for us and we felt safe walking around the neighborhood. Several good restaurants are close by and it is also easy to access public transportation. We enjoyed privacy and a comfortable room at the B and B. The innkeeper, Barbara, made us feel at home. We loved her little dog, Chico.

Audubon Park House is our home away from home. Barbara is not just your owner/proprietor, she is your friend. Located in a beautiful, quiet, residential Uptown neighborhood just a short walk from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, Audubon Park, Tulane, and Loyola, Barbara and Auduon Park House have hosted my wife and me 15 times for six days or longer between April, 2005 and December 2012. This B&B is comfortable, quiet, and always filled with interesting quests with whom you can kibbutz during breakfast around the dining room table. (No topic is out of bounds.) In short, Audubon Park House and Barbara (and adorable pet pomeranian "Chico") exude personality and serve as wonderful complements to the music, food, sports, people, excitement, and soul of the city of New Orleans.

I felt welcome and at home the moment I stepped inside this bed and breakfast. The close proximity to the street cars, park and university made my visit so much more enjoyable and possible. There really was no need to call a cab to get to Magazine street or the French Quarter because a short walk through the lovely neighborhood lead me right to the street cars while also letting me take in the view.The relaxed environment allowed me to come and go with ease which was great because the mixture of visiting friends and sight seeing came with unpredictability. The security is very good (each room gets its own key) and the private bathrooms are nicely kept. The price of my stay was way too good to pass up and I will definitely come back again!

I stayed here for 5 days in March 2012 and found it delightful. Audubon Park, 2 blocks away, is a wonderful place to go for a walk or run. Massive live oaks provide shade. The host is very relaxed and makes you feel at home immediately. The house is full of furniture but I found the room and the attached bath very satisfactory. The neighborhood is very quiet but it's easy to catch a streetcar to downtown or elsewhere. It's in an area of town where there are almost no other guest houses and the rates are reasonable. I'm sure I'll go there on my next trip to the city.

This place is just fascinating. Old and funky...filled with terrific clutter. Barbara is a gracious hostess who leads her half-dozen eclectic guests through delightful breakfast conversations. Close to everything in a quiet neighborhood, this is a wonderful value.

I stayed there with two friends for an extended weekend. The house is wonderful - lots of furniture that make it seem a bit messy but in a very charming way. The host couldn't be more accomodating. She puts everyone at ease right away. She has a little dog who's very cute and quiet. Breakfast is great too - abundant and diversified food, and it is served in a beautiful room. The surroundings are also very nice - beautiful houses all around. And it's only a few blocks away from the streetcar, that goes right to the French quarters. My friends and I loved our stay there.

My husband and I stayed here about a month ago and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The host was wonderful and made everyone feel so cozy like we were at home. Walking distance to many adventures!
