Extra-ordinary!

5 on December 17, 2014

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.


We can't wait to return! You must choose Southern Comfort!

My husband and I spent five nights at Southern Comfort B & B and can't wait to return. The inn is a wonderful example of 100-year-old New Orleans architecture, but much more important was the true B & B feeling created by Cindee Quick, the innkeeper. Inn keepers really do make a huge difference in stays and this stay was exceptional. From the gourmet breakfasts to help with current happenings, "must sees" and finding fresh seafood to take home, Cindee's attention to her guests and her knowledge and love of New Orleans radiated. We shared our experiences with some very delightful guests and new friends. And, of course, we have lots more we want to do in New Orleans. I plan to do more sitting in the garden and rocking on the front porch--relaxing in true "Southern Comfort "on our next visit. Our return trips will definitely find us at Southern Comfort B & B!

Our stay at Southern Comfort Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. We spent four nights and enjoyed them all. Cindy was an engaging hostess and a fabulous cook. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for in a B&B. All of us would return again, hopefully soon. Marcia Gobble


We stayed a week!

My wife and I stayed at the Southern Comfort in September for 6 nights. We booked the Plantation Room which is the biggest B&B room I have ever stayed in. The location is great. Only two blocks to the street car line. The area is residential and in the garden district so it is super quiet. Cindee is amazing! We were there to do research for a book my wife is writting and Cindee was a wealth of information. She also helped us plan each day at breakfast and was great at getting us reservations whenever we needed them. The next time we are in New Orleans, we will stay at the Southern Comfort.

Terrific B&B!

Charming accommodations, delectable breakfasts, and a delightful hostess . . . one fabulous get-away weekend in New Orleans! My husband and I stayed at the Southern Comfort Bed and Breakfast over Labor Day weekend. The inn is located on a quiet street in the Garden District and within a short walk to the St. Charles Avenue streetcars. We thoroughly enjoyed the Plantation Room – large, clean and comfortable, with a side parlor. The hostess, Cindee Quick, is not only a great chef, but she is also very knowledgeable on New Orleans: best restaurants, best sites to visit, and best way to get there from the B&B. We look forward to another visit to Cindee’s inn, and we highly recommend it to anyone who is seeking a relaxing place away from the city’s hustle and bustle.


Can't say enough!

As soon as we walked in the door the owner made us feel more than welcome. It was like we were just staying with an old friend. She sat down with us and asked us what our plans were and then helped us map out some things to do and even made suggestions of who to see and where to eat. She also took care of making a special dinner reservation for us. She was always friendly and asked about our day in the mornings and took the opportunity each morning to help us rehash a plan of attack on the city. The house was also super close to the street car which made everything easy-breezy. The one thing I absolutely must rant about is the food! This lady can cook!!! I still dream about her breakfasts!!! All in all, we had a wonderful time. And it was definitely all because of Southern Comfort B&B!


"A taste of the old south"

My wife and I spent four days with Cindi in August. Coming from the Northeast culture, we found the hospitality to be a treat. The house was beautiful and our room comfortable. The diversity of the menu exceeded our expectations, and the service was outstanding. If we ever return to New Orleans we will definitely make reservations at the Southern Comfort Inn.


New Orleans B&B - Just Fabulous!!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a truly memorable three nights in early June. The property is beautifully maintained and decorated and is well located for a stay in the city and its sights. Cindee, the hostess, is amazing. Full of knowledge and advice with what's going on; ever cheerful and a fabulous cook. Thank you for such a great stay.


Wonderful stay in New Orleans

My husband & I stayed six nights at Southern Comfort and it was truly a wonderful experience. Cindee provided us with a wealth of knowledge for places to visit, where to eat and helped us with tours of the New Orleans area. She even arranged a spectacular lunch at Commander's Palace for my husband's birthday. I would definitely recommend Southern Comfort to anyone and would certainly stay there again. Perfect location!
