I'm so glad that the hotels across the river were full when I wanted to stay there for a conference. That brought me to Ed and Hillary's B&B in Algiers Point and an immersion course in local lore as well as much more. At various times the old 19th century house has been home to a river boat captain, a railroad magnate and a celebrated jazz musician (who is memorialized on a plaque affixed to the front wall). It has been sensitively refurbished and appropriately updated without destroying its authenticity. The beds are large and comfortable, the ceilings soar, bits of art and curios adorn the walls and the floorboards have just the right amount of creak to be enticing rather than annoying. My bathroom was large enough to have held a small party in and one wall hosted a non-working antique gas heater. The rooms were toasty in temperatures that flirted with freezing at night and the two dogs were companionable if invited. Leaves on a 200 year old oak rustled outside the window; klaxons on trains and river boats were far enough away to provide the right kind of atmosphere to lull one to sleep. Neighborhood homes display a range of architectural styles and are in almost uniformly good repair; the exteriors of many can be visited on a self-guided walking tour. For a dollar a trip I rode the ferry to and from the Canal Street landing near the Convention Center - great opening and closing bookends to the business portions of my stay. It was a ten minute walk from the house, leaving just enough time to reply to friendly greetings from dog-walking neighbors and kids at play on sidewalks surrounded by often lush vegetation. There are signs advertising the presence of security cameras but mostly to encourage dog exercisers to pick up after their pets; I saw no hint of threats to humans during 3 days there. I hope to be back.

Bed and Breakfast at the Point is the perfect place to stay if you want the local vibe of New Orleans living. The neighborhood does not have an unfriendly face and the hospitality makes you feel as if you have know the owners for decades. It is only a short ferry ride to the Quarter if you are out for exploration, but you get to come home to a nice quiet neighborhood to relax for the evening. Our room was spacious and captured all of the charm the homes of the area bring. We will be returning for sure!!

We stayed for 5 nights as the last leg of our road trip from Washington DC, having stayed in 7 other B&B's or hotels. This one was of the very highest quality in every way. Our hosts, Ed and Hillary made our stay so memorable. They were very helpful with all things New Orleans having lived in the city for many years, and are very friendly and approachable.
The breakfasts are delicious, freshly prepared and different each day. It was a real pleasure to sit down and eat them in their lovely dining area, often with one of them around to discuss the day with. We had the Verret Suite downstairs. Consisting of a bedroom, lounge, bathroom and mini kitchen with direct access onto the outside swimming pool, which we used twice a day and was very welcome after a day exploring the city. The house is one of the oldest on The Point and is beautiful with many original features, and is very convenient to the ferry being only a 5 minute walk away. It is set in a very quiet, leafy and historic residential area, being the second oldest district in New Orleans with a fascinating history.

Room Tip: We loved the Verret suiet, it is big and very comfortable with its own front door. We did also stay one night upstairs, as we booked an additional night at very late notice, which was also a beautiful room with a huge Oak tree outside the window, and having a king sized bed.

Our family of 5 are driving back to Ohio as I write this; 3 kids ages 10, 9 and 7. We had the top two rooms. The kids were unsure at first as this was their first B&B experience as was ours. They loved it here! They played with cookie the dog, football in the street and in the levee. We walked to the ferry, The Snow(sno cones), the Kupcake shop, Gulf pizza, all over. Ed and Hillery were awesome hosts, it was like we knew them forever. The breakfasts were fantastic. The whole neighborhood was so friendly and full of character. It sure was the best taste of New Orleans. Maybe we will bring our dog next time to play with Cookie. Love, love, loved it!

Bed and Breakfast on the point was a great place to stay while we toured New Orleans and the nearby area. There were three of us staying in the room and it was very spacious; our room had a sitting room, private bath, and a mini kitchen. Out host and hostess were wonderful--the breakfast was so filling that we weren't hungry till midafternoon. They also have the two cutest dogs around! A few tidbits if you choose to stay here. The ferry has recently gone through some changes and is no longer free for pedestrians it is now $2 per person and they no longer allow cars on. Most days we chose to drive into the city--the drive is not too bad and we got a great deal at the Iberville garage only $6 if you get there before 10am and leave before 8pm.

Room Tip: I am not sure if you could request a room, but we had the Verret Suite. Also our third person was an additional $25 per day.
