Located just 2 blocks off St. Charles Avenue and close to uptown restaurants such as Upper Line and Crepe Nanou, this wonderful house exudes New Orleans charm. High vaulted ceilings and restored decorations add to the atmosphere, along with a supremely comfortable bed. The breakfast is typical of New Orleans with its restaurant imposed restrictions, but the coffee (with chicory upon request) and atmosphere made for perfect mornings to read the paper on the spacious porch.
The hosts supply the southern charm you expect at such an establishment. They were very friendly but made great effort to be available yet not intrusive. There are two small children that would not have been seen had we not asked. They are well behaved, polite, and a joy to see. There is also a large yard and playground that the hosts offered for our use, and even to our friends in town. The entire setting was very quiet and relaxing. Overall, this was a great experience and we plan to return.
We found the Maison Belle Reve to be less than what we expected. The room was nicely appointed, with a comfortable bed. But it was advertised as the light sleeper's perfect room and it was not. Mainly for the fact that the owners have two young children which are allowed to run and scream early in the morning. In a town like New Orleans (night life!), this isn't a good thing. It seemed as if the owners had no regard for this fact. Also the "breakfast" consisted of store-bought cereal and muffins, juice and coffee. No real breakfast to speak of. Maybe that's nit-picky but in the experience of B and B's that is not really breakfast. It is best to cover those kind of details in your discussion of your experience. It was only adequate at best.
