Had a GREAT time!

5 on March 23, 2016

It was our first ever Bed and Breakfast. We just stayed one night. Our host recommended the R.W. Norton Art Gallery in the area...It was awesome we spent about three hours looking around and it was free. Breakfast the next morning was great and we had a great conversation with a couple from Oklahoma. Would love to come back if the opportunity presents itself.


Beautiful place to stay.

Our stay was exceptional, the staff & service is above any thing expected. They really make you feel at home and my goodness the breakfast they prepare and serve is outstanding. Thank you to Mr. Harris & Mr. Resmondo for everything. We absolutely will stay here again when we are in the area.


Beyond our expectations

WOW. What a great experience we had at 2439 Fairfield Bed & Breakfast. We had plans to go out and visit the city but after arriving at the Bed & Breakfast, we were surrounded by such beauty and comfort that we spent most of our time on property just relaxing and unwinding. Breakfast each morning was amazing. We ate so much that we never had room for lunch. Jimmy was great at recommending places for dinner and things to do in the area. If you want a truly relaxing and comfortable stay, we highly recommend 2439 Fairfield Bed & Breakfast. It's SO much better than your standard chain hotel. Go stay with Jimmy, I promise you won't be dissapointed.

We spent our wedding night in the Jamie-Alice Suite. Very nicely decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was awesome and the fried pies are to die for!

The experience was second to none. The hospitality was generous and given sincerely. My room was beautiful and comfortable. They have a great location in an historic section of the city. My hosts accommodated to each guests while bringing us all together at breakfast (which was the best i have ever eaten). I will select this bed and breakfast as my first choice each time I visit Shreveport.


Like staying at Grandma's house

Food & service were great! Rooms were a bit small, but each had it's own balcony. Our room had obvious water leak damage on ceiling.


Great romantic getaway

Jimmy and Brian set the tone for this B&B experience. Their friendliness and hospitality (along with a Southern breakfast "to die for") will make you want to stay again.

About the innkeepers

I have always loved BnB's, so when I bought this home and started on the restoration, we decided it would make a great BnB. So 28 years later, here I am. Still running the BnB and enjoying every minute of it. We get to meet so many great people from around the country and the world. Many we have remained great friends with over the years. I love being able to offer our guests something better in accommodations other than the generic, run of the mill hotel chains.
