My wife and I purchased the cottage in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina flooded our home with 11.9 feet of water. After the Hurricane we moved 3 times in a little over a year. At that time we had not started rebuilding our home in Lakeview and decided that we needed a home to call our own knowing that the rebuilding would be long and tedious due to the lack of available contractors. Anne always dreamed of owning a Creole Cottage and even visualized this Cottage in her dreams. She road the neighborhood for weeks on end looking for the Cottage and one lucky day, there it was. She called me at work so excited she could hard contain herself and the rest is history. We were fortunate enough to purchase the Cottage and moved in in early 2006. We enjoyed living in the neighborhood for over two years until moving back home in 2008. We had a lovely friend in graduate school who treasured the Cottage live there until she completed her Ph.D. and relocated. So now we are ready to share this jewel of Esplanade Ridge with visitors from all over the world.

Charlie and Anne Singer purchased this cottage in 2006

I spent the first 24 years of my life in this neighborhood until my wife and I married. We both dreamed of owning a cottage in this neighborhood and, for me, it was like coming home. This neighborhood and cottage is something you have to experience. It is a slice of heaven and we hope that you feel the same way about our Cottage and the neighborhood.

Our Creole Cottage is centrally located just steps off Historic Esplanade Avenue. You can quickly get to any of the many attractions the City of New Orleans has to offer with a quick walk, trolly, bus, or taxi ride within minutes. Enjoy walking, biking or just people watching from our home. Or, leisurely take in all of the activities in our area ... people are walking and chatting, eating and enjoying beverages in the many outside cafes and pubs. People are running, relaxing in the park. Enjoy watching the bike tours riding by our home viewing all of the Historic architecture in our neighborhood. The cottage was completely renovated in early 2013. It is a single dwelling with keyless entry specific to each guest. Paper products, kitchen staples, bath products, linens, barbecue pit and tools. We aim to provide all of the comforts you expect from a luxury hotel with the benefit of a well appointed kitchen. Visitor satisfaction is important to us. We live very close to the Cottage and will be available to you. We will be happy to provide you with recommendations, directions, advice on the best way to enjoy our city. We are a telephone call away if you need us. Otherwise, enjoy your privacy and love our City.

A Wonderful Getaway!

This spot is perfect for any body who wants to visit New Orleans or even those who've been before and are returning. The house is comfortable, in a great location with lots of restaurants and landmarks to walk to, and we had a great time during Mardi Gras! Close enough to walk to Endymion but far enough away that traffic wasn't an issue.

The next time my wife and I are heading to New Orleans, we won't even consider looking for another place to stay. For the price of a single room in a nice hotel, you get the privacy of this cute cottage with a master bedroom with a very comfortable king bed and plenty of storage space; a full kitchen with top of the line appliances; a dining table and chairs; a bathroom with a shower/tub combination; a washer and dryer -- both in tip top shape; free Wi-Fi and cable TV, a fenced in back yard complete with a gas grill, an outdoor table with four chairs, two very nice bicycles, and a "welcome basket" full of nice goodies and a small bottle of wine waiting for you when you arrive. The cottage is tastefully decorated and everything was in immaculate condition when we arrived. You're on a quiet side-street with on-street parking for two cars. But you're not much more than a mile away from City Park in one direction and the French Quarter in another. You can even walk to Cafe Degas for dinner in less than 5 minutes. What's not to like? The owner is courteous and takes care of details, from your first phone contact to her final email wishing you a safe journey home. Our "twenty-something" son and daughter-in-law joined us for two of our five nights and loved the cottage, too. The sleeper sofa in the TV room worked just fine, and the four of us never felt crowded. My wife and I were delighted with our stay at the Creole Cottage and are happy to recommend it to others without hesitation.

Amazing place to stay in NOLA

We had an AMAZING TIME at this beautiful cottage. The pictures do not do it justice. It was very comfortable, especially the king size bed. We enjoyed sleeping in after our late nights in the French Quarter. Ann was very helpful and friendly and the little extras she does for her guests are much appreciated. The neighborhood is great and we felt very safe there. We took the street car to the French Quarter which was fun as well as a cab ride or two. We had the best fried chicken (ever) at Willie Mae's Scotch House and enjoyed amazing music on French Street. We would definitely come stay here again and have already recommended it to our friends. It's a hidden treasure for sure!

First time visitors to NOLA

This was our first time in New Orleans and staying in the creole cottage was everything we could ask for! Anne and Charlie have a very comfortable place that is well taken care of with all the little extras. We frequented the local cafes and market as well as experienced Bourbon Street, City Park, the garden district, Jackson Square, French Market, horse track, etc all without renting a car. A short walk, a ride on the bus or hope on the street cars made it easy to sightsee.

Thanks Anne and Charlie!

My girlfriend and I recently rented (January 31 to February 3) Creole Cottage. We both have been to New Orleans on numerous occasions, and this rates at the top. The home is as advertised with lots of extras--soaps, snacks, local beers, and more. The neighborhood was safe with friendly neighbors and a variety of excellent restaurants. Within a short walk is City Park. The sculpture garden is world class. I have been in the vacations rental business for 20 years, and this rates at the the 5 stars. We will be back! Rich and Peggy

Located in the Heart of New Orleans, our Cottage is centrally located and just steps off Historic Esplanade Avenue. Our neighborhood is safe and within walking distance of the New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park, the Fairgrounds (Jazz Fest and horse racing), and 2 miles from the French Quarter. The neighborhood is a colorful gem and one of the most desirable areas of New Orleans.

We enjoy strolling to dinner or to have cocktails at Cafe Degas, Lola's, Nonna Mia, Liuzza's By the Track, or Santa Fe. You'll notice lots of locals enjoying our Alcee Fortier neighborhood park relaxing and enjoying the weather or maybe playing checkers! Around the corner you will find everything you need - all locally owned grocery stores, a wine store, spa, book store, and coffee shops.

From our cottage, there is no need to rent a car to explore New Orleans. Walk less then one block to catch the Esplanade Avenue/French Quarter bus into the French Quarter or enjoy the 5-block watch down Esplanade Avenue to City Park to catch the streetcar.

Getting around New Orleans by streetcar is a great way to see the city. Walk from the cottage to catch the street car in front of the majestic New Orleans Museum of Art. Streetcars in New Orleans offer and can be paid with exact change when you board. 1, 3, and 31-day unlimited ride Jazzy Passes are also available. The streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans. This streetcar will take you along the scenic route to the CBD and the French Quarter/Aquarium of the Americas.You can then connect to streetcar lines to Uptown New Orleans, Tulane University and the Audubon Zoo. Or transfer to the streetcar that runs along the Mississippi River through the French Quarter. See the Quarter, the St. Louis Cathedral, Cafe du Monde, Jackson Square, and the French Market.

One of the most beautiful and enjoyable areas of New Orleans is City Park. Devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the 1300 Acre New Orleans City Park has been completely restored and expanded. City Park attractions: The New Orleans Museum of Art, Botanical Garden, Sculpture Garden, Boat and Bike Rentals, Tennis Center, Fishing, Picnic Shelters and very soon Miniature Golf! You can even enjoy Beignets and Cafe au Lait at Morning Call in the Park.

Visit their website for details.

Keep your walking shoes on and visit the Audubon Nature Institute's Audubon Zoo (my grandsons love the Cool Zoo sprinklers and water features), Aquarium of the Americas, Insectarium, IMAX Theatre, and the Audubon Park and Golf Course. More info at www.auduboninstitute.org.

Don't miss a visit to The National World War II Museum. The museum presents the American experience during the WWII era with moving personal stories, historic artifacts and powerful interactive displays. Visitors to the museum are encouraged to allocate roughly 2½ to 3 hours to tour the museum. An award-winning 4-D film, Beyond All Boundaries, is an overview of the war on every front. A variety of other multimedia displays are part of the museum's exhibits, notably dozens of video oral histories conducted with veterans by museum staff. The museum includes two restaurants, the American Sector and the Soda Shop, both operated by noted chef John Besh. www.nationalww2museum.org

And then there is....The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival! Imagine leisurely walking two blocks to the entrance to Jazz Fest! No hassles with traffic, parking...pure heaven. After an exciting day at the Fest, walk over to Liuzza's By The Track to continue partying or to one of the restaurants to carry on with the incredible food and beverages. Nothing beats this....HEAVENLY
