House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2017

What a great stay! Got in about 4 PM on Sunday, 6/11/17, and the Guv'nor, Kevin, had a cold beer chilling for us. He then escorted us down the the Crown and Anchor pub on the corner for a couple and then joined us for dinner at The Old Point Cafe, (the food was excellent!). Of course it was helpful that the owner of the B & B, Kevin, was from my old manor, Canning Town, in London, England. We had a great night.

The location of the B &B in Algiers Point, is just a 5-minute walk from the ferry, which is a $2 and 10-minute ride across the river and immediate access to The Riverwalk, French Market and 15-minute walk to the WWII Museum, (which is a must-see).

We are very much looking to another visit in September of this year, as we head back to Austin, Texas from a Florida vacation.

PS I even got to take Boudin "The Wonder Dog" for a late night walk!

Room Tip: We had the room at the back. Kevin showed us the other rooms, they all looked very nice. There is no...

Kevin loves making sure his guests are not only comfortable, but have a memorable experience to want to return again to The House of the Rising Sun. His attention to detail and his winsome personality charm and satisfy. We arrived tired from a long train ride to New Orleans but Kevin rejuvenated us quickly with an engaging "happy hour" on the back porch. The breakfasts are wholesome and filling, most delicious. The bed gave us the best two nights' sleep in months. We enjoyed the English pub just down the street and the short walk to the ferry. We are returning again!

Room Tip: Our bedroom required a short trip through the living room to get to the bathroom. Two other rooms h...

We really enjoyed our stay with Kevin and Wendy. The rooms are clean and well maintained, and the hosts are very easy to talk to. Breakfast was cozy and comfortable. It is an easy walk to the ferry taking you over the river to the French Quarter and other sights on that side of the river. Nearby eateries have very tasty food and good service. Thank you for the bed and breakfast you offer to visitors!

Excellent, friendly, dog is a delight, and only a quick ferry ride to the French Quarter. You won't even need a car unless you want to venture out further around New Orleans to the swamps and such. Recommended.

I had never stayed anywhere besides hotels when I would go on vacation so I didn't what to expect but I absolutely loved it! The entire place is so beautiful and eclectic inside and out. Kevin was so kind and informative about everything plus had great stories. Plus Boudin is the cutest, sweetest dog ever♥️ I highly recommend this place to anyone. You will not be disappointed!
