A quiet, nondescript Mid-City neighborhood unexpectedly houses this splendid B&B, antiqued but not frilly, steps from the Canal Street streetcar line. Fine art, stunning woodwork, and a gorgeous fireplace add architectural flair. Tasty breakfast is in the formal dining room, or you can take your homemade muffin to the pleasant but unexceptional outdoor space. The largest rooms are on the second floor, where the impressive decor ends at the bathroom door (though most have Jacuzzi tubs, so we’ll deal). The smaller, garret-like rooms on the third floor make clever use of their odd shapes and bleached wood. Ghost hunters should request the haunted room. Host Larry and the family golden retrievers add a pleasantly personal touch.
