Fealt Like Home Away From Home

4.0 on February 06, 2017

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!

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.


Excellent

My group rented three rooms at The Stockade. Our time there was delightful. The staff was very accommodating. The bed linens were superb! Ask about them, as they are available for sale. Breakfast both mornings was very good. All of my group would definitely stay there again. Thanks for a great experience Janice!


Nostalgia, like staying at my Mamaw's

The Stockade B&B is the most comfortable setting for a getaway to Baton Rouge, LA. I honestly wish I could pack Stockade B&B and take it as my lodging to all my travel destinations! To be quite honest, we were so cozy at the Stockade B&B that we opted to stay in one day, seriously felt like I was back in time at my Mamaw's where true peace resonated entailing major rest & relaxation. The breakfast is to die for and quite frankly was the best meal we had on our trip. I will ONLY stay at the Stockade B&B. It's actually quite conveniently located and a great getaway!

Innkeeper Response
Awww, shucks, it is our pleasure and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for coming. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Baton Rouge! Kind Regards, Janice, Innkeeper


Loved the breakfast

My wife had a business meeting in Baton Rouge and we decided to turn it into a weekend to get away. I decided to surprise her and book a B&B since I know she loves B&Bs. We stayed in the Escape Room. The room was very big. The bed was comfortable. The room was quiet. We slept very good. The best thing that I loved about our stay was the breakfast. I am usually not a big breakfast person. I do not like eggs and I usually just eat cereal and milk for breakfast. The French Toast with fruit was to die for!! It was the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B.

Innkeeper Response
Well, kiss ma’ grits, I am so glad that you liked the French Toast! It is more like a dessert than breakfast. Thank you for surprising your wife with a stay at our B&B. We appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again soon. Yours in hospitality, Janice, Innkeeper
