“Home sweet Home!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

It's always a delight to stay at Maison DuBois! It's a perfect location, convenient to all the action in the French Quarter yet a quiet haven when it's time to relax. The beautiful pool in the courtyard makes the perfect escape in the hot summer months and the spa is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after an early dinner. The hosts are locals that know every square inch of their city. Ask Tom for a history lesson while enjoying your breakfast...fascinating! The rooms are large and elegant, beautifully decorated in classic New Orleans style. Choose the Orleans or the Esplanade rooms (pronounced "esplanAID in New Orleans) to gain your own access to the back veranda overlooking the courtyard. Enjoy your morning coffee then take the spiral stairs down to the saltwater pool...heavenly! The Plantation is the prettiest with a fabulous sleigh bed and huge gilded mirror over the fireplace. It also has the biggest bathroom. The Vieux Carre is the front room and is almost like having your own apartment with a large living area and quick access to the kitchen. The Dauphine Marigny is perfect for families with it's main entrance and two separate bedrooms with a shared bathroom between. One room has twin beds with lots of space in the center and the other room has a gorgeous tall four poster bed. All rooms have televisions, ironing boards, irons, blow dryers and plenty of towels. We have visited when the house is full but rarely see the other guests except at breakfast. It seems everyone is out exploring or keeps different hours...makes it feel like the house is all yours! I recommend this B&B to any of my friends planning a visit to New Orleans. It doesn't get any better than Maison DuBois.

Room Tip: Orleans or Esplanade for easy veranda and pool access

We stayed at the Maison DuBois this past weekend for a reunion. We rented the entire place, and we all enjoyed the experience. The home is nestled in a quiet stretch of Dauphine street in the historic Faubourg Marigny district and steps from Bourbon Street. It is very close to the best music clubs and a short walk to great restaurants. The home itself is very well maintained, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a full kitchen and a lovely dining room and comfortable living room. It is a historic home, so the bathrooms are a bit on the small side and the finishes are in keeping with the house. If you are looking for a more modern space, then this isn't the place for you anyway. However, if you want a quiet respite in a lovely home in keeping with the New Orleans tradition, then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: the rooms with balconies have a private bath and are very quiet.

We spent the New Year week in the Maison du Bois and were delighted with every aspect of our stay. Tom could not have been more welcoming and accommodating of our needs and the elegant period house has all mod-cons with a kitchen and comfy sitting room for guests. The rooms were very clean and well supplied and there is a delightful pool and courtyard area outside. The house is perfectly placed to explore the French Quarter. It is situated in a quiet leafy street but great cafe's, shops and entertainment are all 5 - 10 mins walk away at most. Tom recommended seeing the Ogden Museum of Southern Art: a fantastic find of unusual art in various mediums including photographs and collage. It is opposite the interesting and massive World War 2 Museum. We absolutely love New Orleans and finding such a great B&B for a week made the trip extra special.

Room Tip: The Dauphine Marigny Suite suited us as it has a large double bedroom, a separate twin bed room and...

We stayed shy of a week at Maison DuBois. Entirely satisfied with our stay. It's wonderfully positioned just off Esplanade abutting both French Quarter and Frenchmen Street areas. Rooms are amply sized, some of which are huge with sitting areas. Our group stayed in the two largest suites, but the two rooms in the back really give you the serenity and deck views of the amazing courtyard w/swimming pool and hot tub. This space is quite the mini-Shangri La, very lush and romantically-lit. The house itself is a converted two-family, beautifully decorated and quite spacious in the common areas. Fellow travelers were a diverse and friendly group. Breakfast was simple but good--healthy cereals, fresh fruit, decent breads and such. Added plus was the convenience store two doors down. Most memorable was Tom, the innkeeper. Always available to provide suggestion for just about anything. He's funny and warm and is just as comfortable "settin a spell" to chat as he is taking a cue that you're breezing in and out and want to be left alone. This place is best suited for adults who want a a B&B to decompress in a safe, welcoming B&B.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the courtyard are the best.

Great location, just outside of the French Quarter. Lovely old building, beautifully furnished. The pool is a godsend, an oasis on a hot afternoon, private and serene. Our hosts were extremely helpful in suggesting places to go and treating us like we were family. Definitely will stay here again!!

Just got home from our second stay with Maison Dubois. It's fabulous! Excellent hosts with great stories, history and recommendations. You are in the midst of a lovely residential neighbourhood, a short walk to the music and food of Frenchman's Street and all the interests in the French Quarter. After wandering all day, it's fabulous to enjoy a shady respite in the lovely pool and/or to soak away the sore feet in the hot tub, to rejuvenate before heading out for dinner and music in the neighbourhood. The rooms all have private bath/shower and sitting areas and are totally lovely. I am happy to make this my home when visiting this wonderful city!
