I have stayed at several B&Bs over the years, but none can come close to this one. It is a beautiful home. This house is over 200 years old but is very well maintained. I have the room off the porch. It had a king size, four post bed. The ceiling, Iím guessing were at least twelve feet high. Hard wood floor and a chandelier. All the furniture were antique. Amazing. Joe asked me when we first met what brought to New Orleans. I told him it was for the food. I live in Alaska and no where can I find Cajun food. I am from Texas and used to go to New Orleans all the time. I started missing the food so much, I decided to go back. Joe proceeded to give me a map and marked all the restaurants he thought I would enjoy. I visited all he suggested, some more than once, and he was right, they were great. The inn is located in St. Charles Street, so all I had to do was hop on the trolley and pretty much go where ever I wanted to go. This inn is located in the Garden District filled with many great homes. Taking the trolley one way would let you see the rest of the Garden District, and a 15 minute ride in the other direction would get you to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. It is a great location to be in New Orleans. Joe has all the tour and tourist brochures and is able to book most of them for you. Like I said, I have visited New Orleans many times so I have done all the tours I was interested in but he did book me a city tour. They will pick you up right there, which makes it easy. Joe and Bebe have a lot of tricks and secrets they tell you to help you enjoy your activity to the fullest. To sum it up, staying at the Avenue Inn was one of the best experience I have ever had on vacation. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants experience what a real Bed and Breakfast is really like. Thank you Joe and Bebe!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast for four nights in the beginning of March. We wanted to stay away from the French Quarter but have easy access to it. The Inn was perfect for us - in a lovely, quiet neighborhood and easy to reach everywhere else in the city. We were conveniently able to stroll down Magazine Street and all through the Garden District from there. Joe and Bebe made us feel at home immediately, welcoming us with warm cookies and a great sense of humor. They're very knowledgeable about the local restaurant scene and happy to give recommendations. We stayed in the king room (Joe calls it the "Mardi Gras" room because it looks onto St. Charles). It has its own private entrance on the porch, a comfortable bed, and big windows that let in lots of good natural light. Itís very quiet despite being in the front of the house. It rained for much of our trip so we had a nice ritual of waking up late and getting a beignet breakfast at the coffee shop next door. We enjoyed having our breakfast on the rocking chairs on the porch or at the cafe table in our room. The Inn is beautiful so Iím sure you canít go wrong with any of the rooms. We loved our stay at the Avenue Inn and will definitely return next time we're in New Orleans. Thanks Joe and Bebe!

This is at least my 5th stay at this Inn and feel like I am at home every time I stay. Joe and Bebe are always extremely friendly and accommodating. They always seem to get us reservations at all of the New Orleans favorites such as Commanders Palace, Upperline, and Emerils. I can't wait to go back.

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast and it was awesome! The house is beautiful and especially the front patio during the parades. Nedra was awesome and very helpful and she made us feel very at home and relaxed. We definitely felt safe during the parades because they had security in the front and back during those times. I went for a couple runs in the mornings and I felt very safe around their neighborhood. I am very happy that we did not stay in the middle of the french quarter because it was crazy down there and I felt like we had a "home" to sleep in when we wanted to get away from all of that. This place is great and we will definitely stay there again next time.

Great B & B, the owners were great and helpful with special logistic tips on our visit during Mardi Gras Also they arranged a reservation to a great restaurant within walking distance that was excellent. Accommodations and service were outstanding, and the breakfasts on their outside porch was a great way to start off your day. Would visit again when returning to NOLA, great residence, great location, nice folks as your hosts.

I had a lovely stay with my boyfriends and his family on January 21, 2015. I am originally from New Orleans, so I love the authentic feel of being home I got at Avenue Inn. We were greeted with warm hot cookies, that melted in your mouth! My boyfriend is unfortunately allergic to chocolate, but no worries within seconds, he was brought a cinnamon pastry to die for. We all felt like the staff and owners went above and beyond to make our stay perfect! This home is lovely.

My wife and I stayed for an extra-long weekend at the Avenue Inn recently for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The stay was absolutely fantastic! Joe was very welcoming on our arrival. He gave us lots of great information that made our visit to New Orleans so much more special. It really felt like we were staying with family or friends. We took advantage of the ample and safe free parking and used the streetcar that runs right outside the door for our daily, and evening, outings. The abundant and wonderfully fresh continental breakfast was perfect and allowed us a chance to eat even though we had a packed schedule every day. The quick snacks available during the day were spot on! We had a very nice room on the third floor. Of course the walk up to the third floor was a bit of a hike, but not a problem. The entire staff was very nice and we are already trying to figure out when we can return.

Warm and welcoming. Felt right at home. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Host are gracious. Thanks for the "out of the oven" warm cookies Bebe! Set in the Garden district it's a great home base for seeing the sights of the city.

We stood at the Avenue Inn during a trip to New Orleans for our anniversary. The proprietors, Bebe and Joe, helped make our visit to the city all that we dreamed it would be. Located in the less hectic Garden District, the home is gorgeous both inside and out. Beautifully furnished, it is comfortable and super clean - the only place I've ever been where I've felt as at ease as if staying with family or close friends. Bebe and Joe are awesome hosts! Their knowledge of New Orleans is unparalleled. They can answer questions, make recommendations and arrangements, or just chat with you about all that the city has to offer, both the typical and the offbeat. There is plenty to do and see within walking distance of the inn. With a streetcar stop right in front of the house, you can get anywhere else in the city with ease - it's just a short ride to the French Quarter, museums, and shopping. Transit passes cost only $3/day, are purchased on the streetcar, and are good for all streetcars and buses that operate 24 hours a day. It gets no more convenient than that! The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We slept peacefully each night in our air-conditioned room (individual thermostats!) with no noise intruding from outside (old houses are built well!). Evening walks are beautiful and relaxing, allowing you to see an abundance of fine architecture in the area. Or, you can sit on the front porch or patio and just watch the world go by. Breakfast each morning on the patio is a great way to start the day. The coffee is great and always fresh. The pastries are the best I've had, this side of Paris (France, not Texas). Words cannot describe them. New Orleans food is amazing! Everywhere we ate was fantastic and there are great places to dine right near the inn. We drove to New Orleans and there is private, off-street parking behind the house. No worries about where to put your car or whether it will be secure. The complementary bottled water and snacks were also most appreciated at the end of a long day. Thank you, Bebe and Joe, for sharing your home with us! We look forward to our next trip to New Orleans and certainly know where we'll be staying!

This is a wonderful B&B with incredible service from Joe & Bebe and their lovely staff. Rooms are beautiful and relaxing with lovely artwork and antiques. Free parking at the back adds to the 'chill-out factor' - you can leave the driving and take advantage of the streetcar which stops outside and drops you downtown for $1.25 (or $3.00 for a day ticket for the whole network). Or you can stay local and eat 5 minute's walk away at 'Superior Seafood' - a heavenly gastronomic experience. Continental breakfast here at 'Avenue Inn B&B' is abundant and tasty with loads of fresh options and an 'all day snack tower' to add to the excellent service. Take in the trips too - City Tour, Natchez Steamboat and the wonderful 'Cajun Experience' swamp tour. This was our first trip to America - we travelled from Detroit via Chicago and The Great River Road - an experience of a lifetime and our 5 day stay in New Orleans concluded our trip fabulously. We would love to visit again and if we do, it will be another stay at Avenue Inn for us!
