The Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast
Travel back in time to 1893 in this laid-back southern charmer.
Take one look at the sleepy southern porch, red velvet love seats, mirrored armoires and chandeliers, and you'll have no question as to why children under twelve are discouraged here. The setting recalls the days when a parlor was a parlor and a mint julep was an early afternoon drink. Located directly along the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, this bed-and-breakfast is just a little more than two miles and $1.25 from the French Quarter, with the University-Riverbend area equally accessible. Guests may take breakfast in the sunny dining room or out on the porch with a view down the oak-lined avenue. The rooms all have individual temperature controls (a must during the sweltering summer months), telephones, cable televisions and whirlpool tubs. If you're heading out and about, ask the staff for help in arranging swamp tours, walks through the historic Garden District or trips down to the old plantations on River Road.
