“My family visits New Orleans every year, and Sully has become such a part of the NOLA experience that I can’t imagine visiting the city without it. The house is beautiful, the food and service excellent. I don’t believe you can find a better B&B in the city!” ~ TripAdvisor.com Review (Texas)
Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast 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 Mansion is the most intact of the few remaining ‘Sullys’ 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. Descendants of the original owner of the home still live around the corner. 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.
