Joys of Innkeeping: Reading Reviews

I’ve been the innkeeper at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast for nearly 18 years, and I probably wouldn’t do it if it weren’t for the guests. Over the years, I’ve met all sorts of people from all over the world. We talk about where they’re from, what they do, and why they’re here. Getting to know the guests is the best part of my job, so it always makes me smile when I read a glowing review — it’s nice to know that guests enjoy staying as much as I enjoy having them!  Here’s a sample of what people are saying about The Stockade:

Best of the Best

“This Bed and Breakfast is truly a gem and innkeeper Janice made the experience extra-special. The landscaping was beautiful. You can tell that the Stockade is a labor of love. The decor was eclectic and fully in keeping with the personality of the inn. Janice has an artist’s eye and a heart of gold. The breakfasts were delicious and it was lovely to sit and relax and chat comfortably in the beautiful dining room. My wife and I would highly recommend a stay at the Stockade. You will be in for a treat!”

Great Location, Great Service, Great Breakfasts!

“We had a very nice stay at The Stockade. The owner and her staff were extremely helpful and hospitable. The breakfasts were incredible and included some of the best blueberry pancakes we’ve ever had! The room and the entire inn was beautiful, comfortable, and clean.”

Bill Compton Was Here

“He signed the guest book too! I really wanted to see the place where they filmed the French restaurant in the show True Blood …I was so excited! I didn’t know what to expect from a bed and breakfast like this one. To my delight, the bed was very comfortable. They have free Wi-Fi and very nice amenities. The whole place just feels so much like home. You could easily grab one of the many books available and a soda and just curl up on the sofa in the main room. It’s so quiet and peaceful …”

A Hidden Gem

“We stayed in the Garden Room for our 26th anniversary in May for two nights. It’s very romantic, quiet, and relaxing … Being a career military man, I was also attracted by the historical significance of the site. We plan on staying in the Blue Room next and we’ve recommended this B&B to all of our friends.”

The BEST Southern Hospitality Ever!

“My husband and I have stayed in B&B’s internationally and agree that this is our best experience. The grounds are beautiful, the home is gorgeous and the traditional country breakfast is ‘the icing on the cake!’ Furnished from room to room with antique furniture and rugs, the interior wraps you in warmth and elegance! Thanks for a wonderful visit, Janice. We’ll be back soon.”

 A Beautiful Place to Stay

“We liked The Stockade so much we extended our stay to three instead of the planned two days. This place is just so comfortable. The grounds are lovely. There are places inside and out to just sit and relax. It is CLEAN! Breakfasts were always hearty and delicious. Janice is a charming hostess with a great sense of humor. We truly felt welcome. I would not even think of staying anywhere else if we ever get back to Baton Rouge.”
