“There is a House in New Orleans
They call the ‘Rising Sun’….”
Named after the fictitious house of ill-repute made famous in the 1964 recording by the Animals, the Rising Sun Bed & Breakfast offers a unique blend of
“Cajun & Cockney hospitality.”
Your hosts, Wendy Portier Herridge, of Houma, Louisiana (Cajun Country) and Kevin Herridge, of Romford, London Borough of Havering (Cockney Country), and "Boudin the Wonder Dog", rescued from the Chalmette Animal Shelter (Da Parish Country), offer you a warm invitation, and great vacation accommodations in one of the most delightful New Orleans’ neighborhoods, the Historic District of Algiers Point (New Orleans’ best kept secret!). Established in 1719, a year after the French Quarter, makes Algiers the second oldest neighborhood in the City. The owners are music lovers, and Kevin is a local Jazz and history researcher and co-founder, and 15-year president, of the Algiers Historical Society.
In business since 1999, after purchasing and fully renovating their “shotgun double” home in 1998-99, your hosts suffered considerable wind damage in 2005, thanks to Hurricane Katrina. Fully renovated and redecorated, again, they are pleased to welcome guests from all over the world!
Their home (they live on site because they are legal) was built in 1896, after the original 1870 cottage was destroyed along with 200 other homes and businesses in the Great Fire of Algiers of 1895.
