About Carolyn (Susie) Rumsfeld

Originally from San Antonio, TX, I moved to New Orleans in 1999 when I married my college sweetheart, Jim. My friends and family call me Susie. I work full-time in the legal industry, but I like to balance it out with operating our little B&B. My passions are early morning runs, browsing through antique shops, really good Mexican food, and a glass of Cabernet.

I love the fact that I live in a city where everyone else wants to spend their vacation, and I also love the fact that we can offer our cottage to our guests to make that vacation a memorable one!

Carolyn (Susie) Rumsfeld purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Carolyn (Susie) Rumsfeld chose New Orleans

Jim fell in love with the main house because of the black & white floors. I fell in love with the 1900 Victorian architecture, and knew I had found the perfect home for my antiques. We are one of the very few in the neighborhood to have a private driveway -- a huge plus. Most all of the homes around us are over 100 years old.

We decided to build a deck and guesthouse in our backyard after Hurricane Katrina when it was proven that our neighborhood was worth keeping. We were among 10 percent of the city that did not flood. And today our city has come back stronger and more prosperous than ever. We named our little getaway 'Ginny's Cottage' after Jim's mom who insisted on staying out there whenever she'd come for a visit. And our little cottage has continued to be a perfect retreat for friends, family, and strangers alike!

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many great things unique to this location. We are walking distance to St. Charles Ave. and the streetcar line. We're four short blocks to Magazine St. with all of its restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Audubon Zoo and park are less than two miles away. The famous Prytania movie theater, which is the last surviving privately owned single-screen theater is less than a mile from the house. And during Mardi Gras, we are literally ground zero, where the parades roll two short blocks from our front gate. And yet, when you enter our property and walk through the private gate to the back to 'Ginny's Cottage' and the pool and spa, you are completely removed from it all and surrounded with total privacy. Who could ask for anything more?

Karen and I arrived in New Orleans last Wednesday night, tired, hot, but anxious about our New Orleans get away. After meeting our host and hostess, we were greeted by a choir of the native crickets, and the comfort of a lovely cottage. Stocked with everything from gourmet coffee, popcorn, fresh fruit and bagels, only the fresh flowers topped the clean comfortable bed. When we woke the next morning to the hot, sweaty New Orleans weather, we ventured out to the nearby streetcar, close by French Quarter and delightful New Orleans restaurants. Thank you Susie and Jim for making our get away weekend romantic, fun and peaceful. We highly recommend your cottage to anyone so inclined to have fun and folic in New Orleans. Thanks, Alan and Karen

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the cottage. The location was perfect for us to both enjoy the sights and sounds of the city and to have a guiet and beautiful place to retreat. The cottage is adorable and the private pool/hot tub/garden area is stunning and more than photos can capture. The owners thought of everything one would expect from a ***** star hotel except the additional charges at check out. We loved what we called the kitchen closet stocked with breakfast and snack items.that Susie made sure did not run out and matched our tastes. Our son recently moved to New Orleans and this was our first visit to see him and truly had the feel of home away from home. The cottage will definitely be what we consider our New Orleans vacation home and can't wait to get back. Thank you Susie and Jim!!!
