We are a married couple who rented the European Suite and my mother joined us for our 3 night stay. We booked this B&B due to its proximity to the FQ and because they had a good Papa Noel discount for the holiday season. We’ve been to NOLA once before and stayed at a B&B in the garden district. Each...

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in the Cottage the week of Thanksgiving. There is nothing I can add to what other rave reviewers have already said...breakfast--outstanding gourmet breakfast; room--clean, well appointed, large bathroom, fridge, microwave, comfortable bed; location--bus stop right outside the door and the bus can get you anywhere in the city with unlimited use for...

First off, the gourmet breakfast served everyday was alone worth the visit. The Russian Eggs and the New Orleans Scramble were fantastic. We stayed in the North American Cottage which was absolutely charming. It had its own porch which was perfect for late-night cocktails. The owners were friendly and very accommodating. It's located within a 10-15 minute walk to the...

Beautiful and comfortable room and wonderful hosts. The breakfast was amazing! My friend and I stayed in the North American cottage since we were traveling with our dog - really nice and private and the owners are very dog-friendly. The owners gave us advice on what to see in the city and how to get around - where to see...

We were lucky to find Five Continents for my hubby's Birthday trip last year and stayed in the wonderful cottage as we were traveling with our little dog.

We stayed here three nights in early September. Place is beautifully decorated and comfortable. I would propably add few hooks to bathroom for towels, but otherwise room was also functional; there is a/c, tv and fridge. If you stay longer than one night, you get fresh towels, if you ask for them. Breakfast is served in communal area from 8-10...

We stayed 4 nights - Peter was super helpful, giving us directions, maps, the room had plenty of tourist information in it.

Breakfast is from 8-10, one big...

We picked this place for two reasons-free off street parking and character. We were glad we did! Our room was great and had a lot of charm. It was a little hard to lug heavy suitcases up the narrow stairs, but we managed. The breakfasts were amazing, and we loved their sweet old dog who politely waited for a table...

This place is wonderful!! Walter and Peter were amazing, the rooms were perfect, and the breakfast couldn't have been more delicious. The B&B is located near a corner intersection where the public transportation stops, which is a nice perk! Walter and Peter were more then happy to help us locate restaurants and suggest fun things to do. They also explained...

“We were in the Middle a Eastern room which required climbing outdoor stairs. Would be very difficult for anyone with mobility problems.”

“Any room would be perfect, just remember that the establishment is decorated in period furniture, so choose the bed size that fits your needs.”

“The Cottage offers the greatest privacy and has a wonderful porch for reading, enjoying a glass of wine, or just relaxing. It is not a part of the main house, although you have a key to the main house for entering for breakfast. Visit their website for pictures.”
