I’ll gladly help you get settled in Baton Rouge. Just let me know what kind of introduction you'd like to the area! I'm happy to make coffee and to share with you each morning, and to offer suggestions for activities during your stay. I can provide you with a bus map if you’ve come carless, and we can discuss the map of the area if you choose to travel on foot or by bike. I’ll do everything I can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Other Things to Note

This quiet community offers the perfect respite from a busy day of sight seeing!

Getting around

Although driving is arguably the most convenient way to move through Baton Rouge, from my house it’s very easy to catch a bus or hop on a bike to get around. Mid-City is also lovely for long evening strolls, and there are great shops, cafes, and bars within walking distance from my place.

Other things to note

Please note that I do have a dog. If you are allergic, please take precautions.

Also, if you have any disability-related concerns, please communicate your needs in your message to me. I will do my absolute best to accommodate. However, please know that my house is accessible by stairs only. The front staircase is brick and somewhat uneven. Also, uneven floorboards & thresholds a particular challenge in this home, as the flooring is original to the building, from the early 20th century. If you have a disability that makes walking on uneven floorboards particularly difficult, please consider this before booking.

This is a very, very good place to stay. Very hospitable, informative, and flexible, especially when I unexpectedly needed to stay an extra night. I cannot recommend Elen and Travis more highly. They are top drawer.

So happy to have chosen this as my first Airbnb in BR! Elen & Travis were very great hosts - laid back but accommodating in every way. Everything was communicated to me which made check in and coming/going a breeze. The home was exactly as shown in the pictures - cozy but unique. And as a guest, I had access to the living, dining, and even the refridgerator, along with my private bedroom/bath. I especially enjoyed the "comfy couch" in the bedroom where I spent some time relaxing while getting some work done. Basically the airbnb had everything I needed. Regarding the area, the central location is in mid-city BR which is perfect for getting around ( I used my car but there is an efficient bus system that comes near by) . Also, there are plenty to places to eat, some even within walking distance. Overall, I think this is one of the most best priced private-room airbnbs in BR. I'm glad I had to chance to stay and hope to return again soon.

It may be advertised between 38 and 50 a night but it ends up being aroind 90 (87 in my case). Was also rushed to leave by checkout. Am very frustrated.

Response from Elen & Travis:
Cost of rental is stated plainly on AirBnB and total shown before proceeding to finalize reservation. Most hosts include a cleaning fee for the stay. Check out time is clearly stated as 11am; you and your cousin did not leave until 1pm even after being politely asked and told we needed to clean the room for another guest. I don't see where that was rushed.

Elen and Travis have a beautiful home in a great neighborhood! This was our first ever Airbnb experience, and we're so glad we pulled the trigger with this home! It was super convenient that we could walk to several great local restaurants just down the street. Great home, terrific hosts.

Thank you for your honest feedback. I have ordered a memory foam mattress topper today and hope that makes sleeping much more comfortable. Glad you had a nice time and enjoyed the area.
