We toured the Beauregard-Keyes House as part of the walking tour called Creole Christmas. Of all the sites we visited in that program this one was the most interesting. It is in the process of restoration so there weren't many furnishings on display, but the guides were very knowledgeable and the interior rooms were impressive. We also got to see... More

My wife spent a pleasant hour, getting a private tour (she was the only one there at the designated time). Well-restored historical Creole house with an intriguing list of occupants.

This house, built in 1826, is well worth a visit. There are many buildings joined together by a beautiful garden. The house is full of antique furniture, lots of history and interesting features. The guide we had was very informative and gave us a wonderful description of the house, and previous owners. The restoration by Frances Keyes was very well... More

This historic house is well worth the visit as the guide is very knowledgeable about the facts of this home which really gives you a perspective of NOLA life many years ago. Built in 1826 and restored by Francis Keyes in the late1940's.

The house itself is very interesting - full of history, antique furniture, and architectural detail. We really enjoyed walking around and seeing how Keyes had restored it. We especially enjoyed the parlor and the gardens. I bought a set of notecards with a painting of the house as it was in the 1800s and have been using those as holiday... More

I went on the Creole Christmas Holiday Home Tour today. I have seen the outside of this house many times and always wanted to tour the inside. I loved the Beauregard-Keyes House. It is beautiful. I especially loved the private section of the house that Mrs. Keyes made her study, bedroom and personal space. Don't miss touring it.

The tour guide was my favorite part! He shared interesting tidbits about the house's history from its beginning to it's last occupant. What a beautiful house it is. The picture I attached is of the pocket door detail.

Really interesting historic/architectural tour. Nice balance between the old New Orleans front and more recent cottage belonging to Mrs. Keyes. Very knowledgeable guide.

Another interesting and delightful way to spend an hour looking round a New Orleans private house (no longer lived in) and being provided with an understanding of how (well to do) people - Beauregard was a prominent Confederate general - lived in the city. The guide was excellent and very informative. The house is opposite the Old Ursuline Convent.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
