Lovely two days

I spent two lovely days at the Stockade B&B. I was traveling on my own and was made to feel very welcome and safe. Janice is a great cook and breakfasts are fantastic.

Enjoyed It - Would Stay There Again

This was our first stay at a B&B ever. We didn't know what to expect, but the Stockade was great. We are local but had never heard of the place before we booked it. The staff are nice and we hardly knew they were there except for the great service they provided. There are several great local restaurant within walking distance. Otherwise you will need to drive (though Uber and Lyft are great alternatives) The L'Auberge casino is nearby too. The room was comfy, and there was a nice balcony to sit on in the morning to enjoy the in-room breakfast which was also really good (and we're picky eaters). I really think that we will stay there again in the future.

This was my 1st stay at a B&B. The price was fair, the accommodations very comfortable, and the "welcome" was warm. If this is "standard" for B&B's, then hotels will never see me again. The Stockade reminded me very much of home with southern charm and hospitality. It was a GREAT stay!

Historic B&B

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Stockade. We stayed in the blue room on the second floor and it was awesome ! Beautifully decorated, very private with a balcony and a wonderful view of the woods . The breakfasts were a treat to round out a great Anniversary weekend ! We would highly recommend a stay at The Stockade !

A treat in Baton Rouge!

My husband and I were in Baton Rouge for an overnight visit. Janice, at the Stockade, suggested places to visit and a great place to get some dinner. After dinner we sat on our private balcony enjoying a lovely evening. The bed was comfortable and the following morning our breakfast was made to order and very satisfying. We would stay there again when we return to town.
