April 2017 french quarter festival

4.4 on November 08, 2017

Loved our host,gave us great ideas where to eat,visit told us great stories and history of NOLA. The Room and bathroom downstairs were clean only downfall was no dresser to place our clothes in so they remained in our suitcase but not a big deal. Light breakfast served which was different day day. Host was very accommodating as our plane was late and we arrived at midnight. Uber taxi to from the airport is half the price of regular taxi so look into this. Would suggest arriving on the Sunday prior to a festival and leaving on the following Saturday as crowds are thick and you just move with them can’t see too much. All in all Kate and Dave’s B n B was a great experience and will stay there again.

Made our stay perfect!

Although this spot is not for everyone, it made a great trip perfect. The hosts were fantastic and helpful and proud residents of NOLA. Old vintage house, great pics, cool history, loved the balcony upstairs overlooking fish pond. It was clean, tidy, and comfy. Felt very much at home. Train noise was there, but added to the quirky site. Look forward to booking them on our next trip, French Quarter Fest was crazy good too!!

great value in the Big Easy

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our son and enjoying the French Quarter festival. This B & B is in a grand old NOLA house, a brisk walk away from the French quarter. Dave and Kate are great hosts. Our room on the first floor had an enormous old deep tub, perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day at the Festival. I can't wait to go back!

great place to stay with really helpful hosts

I stayed here for 5 nights and really loved the place. The house is really interesting and the rooms are comfortable, nicel;y decorated and well stocked - including fridge with water/cokes.. Kate and Dave came and collected me when I get lost trying to get to theirs, they had cut out music recommendations from a paper and were generally very helpful. The neighbourhood is bit further out from french quarter but is cool with lots of interesting bars and cafes, and felt safe to me .. I really enjoyed my stay

Quaint B&B

4.6 on April 20, 2008

This B&B was in the heart of everything we wanted to do. We could walk anywhere to see the sights and eat the "Outstanding Food". We hope everybody that gets to go to this area try out the different types of foods. Kate and Dave were very friendly and informative on where and how to go to the different places of interest. I would recommend this B&B to all my friends. The location, the price, and the rooms were outstanding. The Goodyear's from "Greenville, SC"
