Grand 1850's Italianate mansion beautifully restored in 2004. The French Quarter, Morial Convention Center and St. Charles Streetcar are easily accessable from the Terrell House as is fabulous dining, avant-garde boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, and pubs found on Magazine Street. All guest rooms and suites have private baths, cable television, wireless internet and most open onto or overlook the lush courtyard. The pace at the Terrell House is relaxed--the decor subtly elegant and inviting. Guests may relax in the courtyard as well as enjoy the beautifully appointed double parlors and den featuring 14 foot ceilings, crowned with plaster mouldings and ornate ceiling medallions. After a long day of exploring New Orleans, there is no better place to seek refuge than in the lovely serene surroundings of the Terrell House.

Great place to stay

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Terrell House Bed and Breakfast. We loved our stay. The room was clean, lovely and well-appointed. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. We would go back in a minute and highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Pleasant experience at Terrel House in New Orleans.

We attended our grandson's wedding last week and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Arthur greeted us at the front door and gave us a detailed tour of the Terrel House. He checked us in and assisted unloading our car. All meals were excellent, especially the wedding reception. We're looking forward to our next visit in 2017. Staff went above and beyond to take care of our needs. Stella was pleasant in her role as the house dog and protector.

Red Room

Everything was beautiful and wonderful. The only thing was my husband did not like the shower head in the Red Room. He said the water came out to hard and fast and that if hurt his skin.

A very nice room in a distinctive house. The only negative was the seriously out-of-date shower head that emitted a stinging thin stream of water on the body which could not be adjusted. I can't recall a more uncomfortable shower experience even in a budget motel. Even the room next to ours had a better shower head.

Spring Break at the Terrell House!

My college roommate and I stayed at the Terrell house for our spring break roadtrip to New Orleans. It was a great deal and we were very impressed with the beauty of the main house and our rooms. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here!

Anniversary trip

My husband and I celebrated our 12 year anniversary by spending the weekend in new Orleans and staying at the Terrell House. The staff was wonderful and did a great job at making us feel right at home. The house was absolutely beautiful but also very comfortable and the food was amazing! We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely stay again.

Wonderful bed and breakfast!

Fall Visit to Burnsville

5 on October 29, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Terrell House in Burnsville while visiting friends and looking at property in the area. While we have visited Burnsville on several occasions, this was our first time staying at the Terrell House. We could not have been happier. The inn keepers were not only outstanding hosts, they have become new friends and ones we will want to see again when we visit the area. Mike and Laura were gracious, knowlegeable, and extremely helpful. When we had an issue withh our car the day before we were scheduled to depart, they both offered their time to help us out in any matter they could. We are already looking forward to our next visit, and it most certainly will include staying at the Terrell House. P.S. for Mike. Perhaps the next UF game we watch together will turn out differently!
