About the Property

4 Suites + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 1-12, sharing beds)

Now offering 10% off inn rentals from now until August 31!

This stunning and eclectic inn is available as either a full rental OR individual suites. It is the perfect accommodation for a couple getaway, family vacation/reunion, ladies weekends and for a convenient Staycation. Parties are welcome, including bachelor and bachelorette. Please contact us with information on your group and we will also provide you with the house rules and conditions.

Located in the funky Bywater neighborhood, the inn is just far enough off the beaten track to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of New Orleans without the commotion of Bourbon Street. The Lookout has four whimsically themed spacious suites, each with their own generous private bathrooms.

Suites are complete with complimentary wifi, Directv, coffee makers and mini refrigerators.

There is NO kitchen OR indoor common area space, such as a living room or great room. The 4 suites are arranged so they can each be rented independently.

Inground saltwater pool, hot tub, BBQ and seating cabana are located in the lush outdoor, common area space. The hot tub is available seasonally and is closed from June to September.

Guests have the choice of 4 individually themed rooms: Mardi Gras, Bollywood, Elvis and Mission. Describing each in detail would ruin any surprise or fun! Each suite is complete with a queen sized bed; 3 of the 4 suites also include sleeper sofas.

Enjoy a laid back, peaceful atmosphere filled with character and charm in this beautiful, historic New Orleans neighborhood. Our location is approximately 2 miles from the edge of the French Quarter and is the perfect distance to a ride a bike into town or take the No. 5 bus which picks up half a block away. Driving? No problem and street parking is available right outside The Lookout. Should you decide to rent a bicycle, we're happy to help you arrange this service.
Nearby you can experience some great bars, live music and terrific eats and many will find some great conversation with the locals.
There is simply no better place to enjoy New Orleans zest for living than The Lookout.


Thank you for reading.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My name is Kelly Rayner and I am beginning my new adventure in life by owning my very own inn, The Lookout, located in New Orleans, My heart and soul are poured into this beautiful guest house and I am dedicated to making every guests experience comfortable, enjoyable and memorable. Outside of my time at the inn, you can catch me and my husband at new local restaurants, snowball stands in the summer and at the dog park with our beloved French Bulldog, Percival Winston.

Why the Owner Chose Bywater, New Orleans, LA, USA:
I love the 4 themes of the suites: Mardi Gras, Bollywood, Elvis and Mission. I’ve always wanted to listen to Hound Dog on a Fat Tuesday in Bollywood before I burn down the Mission.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is an owner occupied property. My husband and I live in the front half of the inn and are available should you need anything at all. We are also completely legal and licensed to operate this inn.
