Sully Mansion Bed & Breakfast Description

Sully Mansion Boutique Inn, was designed by renowned architect Thomas Sully (1855-1937) in 1890 for the Rayne Family. Thomas Sully, along with James Feret, formed the first architectural firm of New Orleans and is credited with shaping much of the unique architectural look of Uptown New Orleans. The Sully Mansion has recently been renovated to add an updated mid century touch to the already outstanding house.  

The Mansion is the most intact of the few remaining in the city. Original stained-glass windows, ornate ceiling medallions, heart-pine floors, grand stairway, 14-foot ceilings, the double entry door, glass transoms throughout the house, turned wood balustrades on the staircase and second floor landing, and fish scale wood shingles on the upper portions of the exterior walls are just a few of the features of this rare three storied Queen Anne-style home. From the original carriage stone at the curb to the pocket doors in the foyer, this home has welcomed guests as a bed and breakfast for four decades.

The house had a cameo appearance in The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons which was filmed one block away. The immediate area is home to Sandra Bullock, John Goodman and Archie Manning. The beautiful fully restored front porch overlooks the luxurious garden and 100-year old oak tree. It provides the perfect spot for breakfast, cocktails, conversation or just taking in the air. Gracious rooms antique accents and comfortable furnishings create a casual yet intimate atmosphere.

Breakfast is served from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. daily. Weather permitting, guests are welcome to enjoy their breakfast in our tropical courtyard.

    Our first trip was in August to drop our son and niece off at school. We enjoyed our stay at Sully so much that we quickly booked rooms for Parents' Weekend. Guy, Nancy and Gracie clearly want you to enjoy your stay at their home and your time in New Orleans. Imagining the history of the house had me mesmerized both weekends. The rooms are opulent, yet comfortable. Located on the streetcar line, the house was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts that Guy and Nancy prepared as well as the languid conversation over drinks on the porch. We'll be back....

    I would like to thank the owners (innkeepers) of the bed and breakfast for their true southern hospitality. Myself, along with my teenage daughter traveled to New Orleans to attend a Miley Cyrus concert, this being a big wish of hers. Being so important to her, obviously made it very important to me. Our experience with Sully's Mansion Bed and Breakfast was exceptional! From the time Mr. Guy and Mrs. Nancy greeted us upon arrival, to our clean and comfortable room we were in awe. The homemade pastry breakfast, along with the warm conversations with our hosts made our trip a true southern delight! We look forward to staying at Sully's on our next New Orleans adventure.

    The Sully Mansion is an exceptional jewel—great location, beautiful antique furnishings, gourmet breakfast, plus over-the-top hospitality. We loved everything about it and will definitely stay there next time we are in New Orleans. Guy and Nancy Fournier went out of their way, repeatedly, to ensure we had a great stay. Amenities included the most comfortable bed ever away from home, a serene ambiance, work of local artists on the public area walls, a porch to hang out, talk and read amid beautiful gardens and shade trees. Quiet, out of the way, yet one block from the St. Charles Ave streetcar with easy access to downtown, Tulane, the zoo, and French Quarter. Ample street parking, and amazing breakfasts! Oozing charm and grace of the Garden District and New Orleans.

    Wonderful time during Mardi Gras. Felt like locals.

    This inn is so convenient - just a block from the streetcar line in the Garden District. It was so easy to park the car and ride streetcars to the French Quarter and the Warehouse District. We didn't drive the car for 2 days! The breakfasts were fantastic. There was a variety of breads and fruit and yogurt and then the main course. The Stuffed French Toast was fantastic - the best we've had. Hospitality was great also.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Sully Mansion and hope to stay there again when i return to New Orleans. It is located in the garden district and is a convenient and safe area. Guy and Nancy are great folks and very helpful. Breakfast was great and rooms are well decorated and comfortable. A wonderful home!
