Stay here!

We visit NOLA at least twice a year and this is by far our favorite! It's beautiful, in a great location and not enough awesome things can be said about Raul and Liz! They are lovely, lovely people...we felt like we were leaving friends! They did a wonderful thing restoring this piece of history!..

Wow! Just Wow!

One of the best places I have ever stayed at. Lovingly restored over 3.5 years, Liz and Raoul have created a wonderful guest house keeping a lot of its original features. When we arrived, Liz gave us a guided tour and explained the history of the place and the stories behind the people who have rooms named after them. Both of them make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive and have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We were on honeymoon travelling across The States and this was by far our favourite place. We will be going back to “reoffend” as soon as we can.
