We came here for our honeymoon and totally loved the place. We ended up having to switch rooms because we booked fairly late and everything else was taken(Heaven & Venice) and we really liked both. Both had a great view of the golf course, which is actoss the street, Heaven felt pretty isolated, Venice was more easily accessible and bigger. Nice jacuzzi tubs in both.
our favorite part however was the grounds themselves. The yard is very well kept with a nice garden in the back, numerous porches/seating arrangements, and an awesome pool where we spent most of the time. We made sure to stock up on wine beforehand for the pool.
Tip: Pileterri is the best winery in NOL, with unlimited free tastings(i learned the hard way)and free wine tours at 12, 2, and 3.
The breakfast was also very good, Steve and Jane do a nice job and serve it to you themselves, which is cool. Both are very knowledgeable about the area but the interesting part is that at breakfast you get a chance to meet other guests and speak with them. We were by far the youngest couple but we found out that almost all had been coming there for years and some had even met each other previously, which says something about the kind of B&B this is.
All in all, it's a beautiful place with nice rooms in a great location with good food and nice people, what more could you ask for?
I'll probably try all 6 rooms out of curiosity butI'd recommend both the Venice and Heaven, my wife likes the Venice slightly better, I prefer the Heaven. If stairs present and issue for you, go Venice.
