History - R&B Bed and Breakfast

Then...
This rare example of the three-bay Greek Revival simple creole cottage was an excellent candidate for restoration because of its fine design, unusual type, and picturesque setting facing Washington Square. It and other cottages of this type, such as 710 Kerlerec and 933 Elysian Fields, are of a much later vintage than the usual side-gabled cottage.

The home now known as the R&B Bed and Breakfast was built after 1869, when Edward Bermudez acquired the land facing Frenchmen on this square, from this lot to the corner of Dauphine. Here the facade is plastered and the sides are weatherboard. The Square-headed openings are embellished by slightly raised lintels and molded cornices. The six-paneled door has an oval transom and Greek Key architrave,and under the overhand is a dentil row. The single central dormer has large proportions in the style of the 1860's.

Now...
In November 2013, local music club owner, Bil Szarabajka purchased the home. He and his sister Rita cleverly named the soon to be Bed & Breakfast, "R&B Bed and Breakfast" for Rita and Bil. Rita and her husband Pierre remodeled the home from cil to ceiling. They refinished whatever could be restored, added colorful walls, and musically themed rooms. Crown molding was expertly chosen and crafted in almost every room. Vintage drapes and cornices from the Baton Rouge Country Club were fitted and installed. Beautiful antiques we're purchased at auction to furnish the home. Bil's love of hand knit rugs is apparent throughout the home and Rita's extensive experience in mattress and linen sales assured the best bedding and towels available.

All rooms are musically themed to reflect the music culture of New Orleans. The newly renovated house highlights the 14-foot ceilings with gorgeous crown molding and refinished hardwood floors. Each room hosts a private bath with shower/tub amenities. For added comfort and convenience, all rooms are provided with black out curtains, plush bed coverings, Cable TV and free WI FI. Rita, who makes up the "R" in the hotel name, is our resident host and will greet you in the breakfast room each morning with a complimentary continental breakfast, served from 8:30am – 10:30am. Breakfast includes a selection of coffee, hot teas, orange juice, fresh fruits, yogurt, cereal, and an assortment of fresh pastries from the local bakery.
