“Top notch B&B in the Big Easy!”
Reviewed 11 May 2009

Top quality B&B with beautiful grounds, great location for Jazz fest and incredible breakfast. Frank was a most gracious host and attended to our every need. I would recommend this place to anyone- then again I am tempted to keep this as my little secret!

Frank, the innkeeper was very attentive, the rooms (we had a little cottage) were beautifully decorated, the pool was lovely, the grounds delightful - cute baby chicks and cats co-mingled without acrimony. Breakfast was first rate and other guests were there to visit with. Location is a bit removed from the French Quarter which made it peaceful and it was a safe and pleasant walk through a lovely neighbourhood (Esplanade Rd) to the Quarter. Quick cab ride too and a bus.

We stayed at the Inn as part of the New Orleans Cooking Experience. This is an amazing cooking school that offers individual classes for locals and tourists as well as multi-day packages at the Inn. This cooking school was a first rate travel experience! The venue was beautiful, the food was amazing and the chefs were wonderful teachers and entertainers.

came to town for a leisurely weekend away from it all. What a delight it was. Loved the cozy room. Ambiance was 100% wonderful. The property is fenced for private parking and appreciated that. the breakfast was divine. Frank and the staff were always there to answer questions with a smile & helpful information about activities in N.O. What a way to relax.

The House on Bayou Road is spectacular, the ambiance is peaceful and calming, the history of the home is fascinating, the rooms are beautifully appointed and to top it off the eggs benedict was delicious with a presentation second to none.
Frank, the property manager was extremely pleasant and accommodating in every way. No request was too much; we were always greeted with a smile and listening ear. We were able to plan our wedding using this venue and The New Orleans Cooking Experience as caterers in the Indigo Restaurant to celebrate with family and friends for a unique experience we'll never forget and are so grateful for.
We were able to take great pictures all around the property, even got some of the roaming roosters!
We can't thank Frank and staff enough for helping make our wedding day a celebration beyond words.
We're looking forward to celebrating anniversaries with you and will encourage everyone we know to treat themselves to the House on the Bayou experience.

The House on Bayou Road is a truly special place to stay. I was born and grew up in New Orleans, so I can confidently say that you won't find another historic, late eighteenth century, restored Creole house with a large tropical garden like this open to the public as a bed and breakfast within the city limits. Aside from the high-ceilinged, tastefully appointed and comfortable rooms, here are some other wonderful things about the House on Bayou Road: Frank, the new manager since November, is an extremely gracious host who works hard to make everything just right for guests; breakfasts are healthy, varied and delicious; parking is secure and free, unlike every other hotel or B & B I researched; wifi is now available in the house rooms (not sure if it's in the cottage rooms); free sherry and port are available in the guestrooms and living room; cooking classes, with some of New Orleans best chefs, are offered (for a fee) on a regular basis to residents and guests alike in the house kitchen; the house is in a quiet, historic neighborhood (as a former resident, it's one of my favorite areas in the city) with the French Quarter nearby in one direction and a group of small, non-touristy restaurants on Esplanade Avenue in the other, heading towards N.O.s beautiful City Park where you'll find the N.O Museum of Art. Since I no longer have a home in New Orleans, this will always be where I stay, and I couldn't recommend it more highly.

I can't say enough about The House On Bayou Road. Frank and his staff were super. The morning breakfasts started with a huge plate of fruit, followed by muffins, croissants, etc and then an omelete made to order, or pancakes, quiche waffles, etc. We ate so much at breakfast because it was so good that we never stopped for lunch. Imagine visiting New Orleans and leaving without tasting a Po-Boy or Muffeletta. The cottage we stayed in was very comfortable. We had a courtesy bar and complimentary sherry and water. We could come and go to the main house as we wished. It is situated 12 blocks from the French Quarter. Taxi service is very reasonable and recommended since parking is sometimes a problem. We visited at Christmas and Frank was very helpful with his restaurant recommendations for Christmas eve and Christmas day--he even had a packet with menus from the various places that would be open on those days printed for us.
I can't wait to return.

Stayed in Bayou Cane. The room was lovely. The staff was friendly and courteous. Property was a small sanctuary set near the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. Truly enjoyed our stay.
