Russel is great. The place is clean, comfortable and classy. The breakfasts are delicious and large. I will stay here again. I've stayed at other B&Bs in New Orleans and they are all nice but this one is nicer.

Russel is a top notch B&B operator. We loved staying here and have felt welcomed and comfortable. The house is very clean and the breakfast is delicious (and big). This B&B is one of the best I've stayed at. Access to City Park, mid city and the French Quarter is convenient. The tall ceilings, wood floors, transom windows and chandeliers...

Russell (proprietor) offers a great Bed and Breakfast in a beautiful section of the town. City Park across the street was a great way to get exercise and feed the ducks and geese. The (Cypress) room accommodations were cozy and offered a great respite to the crazy days and nights of Mardi Gras. Waking up in the morning, a delicious...

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Oak view is a lovely 100 year old historic Victorian. It is ideally located across the street from the famous City Park and the New Orleans Museum. That means we are walking distance to Jazz Fest, across the street from Voodoo Fest, two blocks from the start of the Endymion Parade, two blocks from the historic Cemetery, around the corner from Bayou Bogaloo festival, and a very short distance to the French Quarter, downtown and the convention center. The trolly stops in front of the door.Further the crescent city classic race and most other races and marathons ends here at the park across from the bed and breakfast. Unbelievable but true.We also feel that we are at least in the TOP 10 for the best Bed and Breakfast not number 25. WE are totally new, totally renovated and modernly upgraded with whirlpools in every room. ... more   less
