This bed and breakfast embodies the spirit and authenticity of antebellum New Orleans. The hosts lovingly researched and recreated a southern plantation town home to help preserve the history of the city and its past, allowing the guests a unique and charming experience. Our stay was enhanced by the phenomenal breakfasts of yesteryear masterfully prepared by Keith, served with the...

The Antebellum Guest House is absolutely gorgeous. The parlor area and dining room are restored to an original "antebellum" time with period furnishings. The rooms were beautiful as well. We stayed in the Rococo Room as I preferred the ground floor. However, because we were the only guests (it was June after all), we were able to view the 2-room...

I can say, without doubt, that the Antebellum guest house was the most amazing guest house I've ever stayed at! I don't think that I'll be able to do the host and his establishment as much justice as I would prefer, but I will try anyway. Firstly, Keith bent over backwards to make our stay that much more special. I...

We arrived very very early, and Keith suggested we go to the WWII museum. WOW! Keith was right on. When we arrived Keith was the ultimate host. Told us about his house and surrounding areas history. He really knows a lot, but his best is the Creole cooking. Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. I could have their...

My husband and I stayed with a friend in the 2BR suite just after Mardi Gras. It was perfect for us. This was our second time at the Antebellum Guest House and we would stay there again in a heartbeat. We had two bedrooms, bath, kitchenette and a nice sitting room where we could hang out and socialize when we...

Keith was a wonderful host and the breakfasts were exquisite. The buttermilk pie was to die for and I only wish I was not so full up that I could have ate another piece. The location was brilliant - close enough to walk into the hub bub of New Orleans but far enough away. Keith was a font of knowledge...

Fantastic, impossible to beat, the antebellum guest house and hosts Keith and Art made our New Orleans trip that much more wonderful. The house itself, and all the antique pieces they have collected, is spectacular. Keith also provides so much information about the house as well as historical and current information about New Orleans. His authentic creole breakfasts were perhaps...

When I started planning our trip to New Orleans, I went on Trip Advisor and after reading all the great reviews I knew the Antebellum Guest House was the place for us. If you are looking for an authentic and beautiful place to stay with amazing hosts this place is for you. The main house is absolutely gorgeous and both...

We recently stayed for four nights at the Antebellum. Keith, the innkeeper, could not have been nicer and more attentive. His attention to detail and his knowledge of everything New Orleans is second to none. He recommended four restaurants for us to visit. They were all spectacular. His breakfasts were nothing less than culinary art. He weaved a historic story...

Keith was an exceptional host. The breakfasts were delicious and relevant to the New Orleans culture. We stayed in the "Rocco" room, which had a private entrance via the courtyard. As the guest house name suggests, the room and house is antebellum architecture. We stayed for 5 days over the Jazz Fest. There were bicycles available which we used each...
