Lovely B&B

5 on May 11, 2015

Lovely B&B and Cindee the owner made our visit special. We have stayed at many B&B and this one is on top of list. Location ,Breakfast, Rooms and Cindee made our 50 th Anniversary perfect.

Just what we were looking for!

5 on April 15, 2015

This was our first trip to NOLA so we were not sure if we wanted to stay in the french quarter or another neighborhood. After reading many reviews, we settled on Southern Comfort in the Garden District and we couldn't have been more pleased. Being only 2 blocks from the St. Charles Trolley allows you to explore the quarter at your leisure, but coming back to the front porch for a nightcap was the best way for us to end the evening. Quiet neighborhood, great breakfast, comfortable room and the best hostess we have encountered made this a very enjoyable and relaxing trip. Cindee knows all the best places for everything you could want to see and experience so don't hesitate to ask. (Be sure to take the air boat swamp tour) Highly recommended.

Location, Accommodations, Food

5 on April 14, 2015

The location is great: two blocks from a trolley stop, yet away from the traffic! The breakfasts are like eating in a five star restaurant! We liked sitting with fellow guests at one table in the lovely dinning room. Cindee is a wealth of information about places to go, things to do. She suggested we go on this Garden District walk and then go to the Commander's Palace (a landmark we learned later) afterwards for lunch (she even made the reservations for us). We had a wonderful time on the walk and didn't realize how lucky we were to get into the restaurant until we were there! We also took her advice about which plantations to see and weren't disappointed. Our accommodations were spacious and comfortable: we had a suite of two rooms and a bath-- the furniture was as comfy to sit or sleep on as it looked (we've been burned in the past). Very nice set of rooms, with a view of the patio below. We arrived late in the evening, after a long day of driving. My husband appreciated being able to get a beer from the fridge (leave your money in the basket) and I helped myself to an orange from a basket. I would highly recommend staying here again. The location, the accommodations, the food, the proprietor-- all were good!

Southern Comfort and hospitality for real!

Our stay at Southern Comfort B&B was great, hospitality couldn't have been better. The house is as nice as it is in the pictures. The accommodations were top notch, bed was very comfortable. We stayed four days, the breakfasts were different every morning, you could taste the TLC in every bite. The early morning coffee that was made available for me was greatly appreciated. The location of the B&B is another plus, we were just two blocks from the Street Car and used it everyday, didn't need a car. The proprietress's knowledge of New Orleans was very interesting and a great help to us. .

Look No Further

This was our third visit to NOLA and the best thanks to the innkeeper, Cindee. Our last visit resulted in a noisy hotel room so we decided to look for a quieter location in the Garden District. We have stayed in a lot of nice B&B's, but Southern Comfort exceeded all the others. Cindee has a lovely 100 yr. old home and is very welcoming. It was like staying in our sister's house. Cindee provided an exceptional breakfast each morning - each dish was a new experience for us. Coffee was always ready for the early risers. After breakfast, Cindee assisted us with planning our day with great recommendations and helped with reservations. The rooms are lovely, vey clean and comfortable, and most importantly each room has its own heating/cooling thermostat. There is plenty of space inside and outside to relax. The location is fantastic, only two blocks from the St. Charles streetcar, and aided by NOLA's great public transit system which interconnects buses and streetcars. A one day pass is only $3. Cindee will do everything she can to make your NOLA experience memorable - look no further.

wonderful place to stay in NOLA

A Lovely Home and Hostess

5 on January 16, 2015

Cindee Quick's home is beautiful and comfortable, homey and elegant at the same time, with a lovely, inviting high front porch that is the perfect place to relax between adventures (mainly culinary!) in this interesting, diverse town. Cindee truly makes you feel part of her family and is so helpful with information and useful tips. Stay as long as you can!

Return visit was just as good, if not better!

We returned to Southern Comfort in December 2014 based on our prior experience there. The property was was we remembered in furnishings, but more importantly, in feel. Southern Comfort strikes that perfectly balanced welcome feeling with warmth and coziness, where the settings in the common areas and bedrooms are more inviting to be used and relaxed upon rather than simply looked at as museum pieces. And Cindee Quick, as proprietor, is a perfect hostess. She joined us for coffee at the end of each breakfast (more on the food later), and seemed keenly interested in us and the things we were saying while using that information to offer suggestions on things we could do during our visit. Cindee knows New Orleans in the surrounding areas very wells and earnestly wants to help her guests enjoy he city and state she loves. Her breakfasts were as interesting as they were good, always leaving us sated but not stuffed. There's a lot of food to be eaten during a multi-day stay in New Orleans, and although we cut back a bit towards the end of the trip we always enjoyed Cindee's meals and conversations to start our days.

While visiting NOLA for a job interview we stayed at SC for a long weekend. Our first time at a B&B, we were uneasy in anticipation of what to expect. We were amazed by the entire experience. The location, the accommodations, the history, the breakfasts, and the incredible hospitality and warm and welcoming personality of the innkeeper Cindy, was immeasurable. The other quests we had the privilege to meet were great people too as we looked forward to sharing our daily excursions over breakfast each day. The housekeeper was delightful and helped us feel at home too. This was the start if a new travel ritual for us as we discovered a whole new travel delight in a B&B. We will be back for sure. Thank you Cindy for a wonderful visit.

A True Hidden Gem!

My mother and I stayed here for about 5 nights while I had some business in New Orleans in September. We could not have asked for a more gracious host or a better stay. The home is beautiful and meticulous. I can be pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness, but this place is incredibly clean and fresh. Breakfast was very filling and delicious, beds were comfy, and other guests were friendly; we made new friends every day! You cannot beat the uptown location either. I will definitely be staying here again in the future whether my trip is for business or for pleasure.
