You’ll feel as if you stepped back in time upon walking inside this historic home, which features 12-foot ceilings, antique furniture, and a cast iron clawfoot tub! With the exception of marble tile in the bathroom and kitchen, this historic home boasts hardwood flooring throughout.

Recline on the comfortable couch in the living room and watch your favorite shows on the flat-screen cable TV. Open up the door in the living room to feel the fresh breeze.

If you aren’t in the mood to dine at any of the nearby Creole restaurants, you can whip up your favorite recipes in the kitchen! The kitchen boasts new stainless steel appliances and all of the utensils you’ll need during your stay.

After dinner, step out on the front porch and unwind on the comfortable patio furniture. You can enjoy the fresh breeze coming from the nearby Mississippi River.

You’re sure to fall asleep quickly each evening after a fun day in the Big Easy! Two guests will sleep comfortably in the queen-sized beds in the first and second bedrooms, and 1 guest can sleep in the twin-sized bed in the third bedroom. Additional sleeping is available in the queen-sized pullout sofa in the living room.

Take your whole family to explore the 58-acre Audubon Zoo on the other side of the park. The massive zoo features over 2,000 species of animals! For more animal adventures, drive to the Timken Wildlife Management Area just outside of the city.

You don’t have to be in town during Mardi Gras to enjoy the madness on Bourbon Street! Experience everything Bourbon Street and the French Quarter have to offer. The area is easily accessible via the St. Charles streetcar line, which is 2 blocks to the house.

Lovely, quiet corner Uptown
In town for our daughter’s college graduation, James’ family home resonated with warmth, charm and character. It was a delightful home base from which we were able to enjoy all the delights of NOLA, and then return home to quiet and comfortable lodgings each night! We’ll be back!
