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 Touro

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?

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was the perfect spot for our trip to New Orleans! The cottage is charming, comfortable and cozy, and the back yard is beautiful and has everything you could wish for - a pool, hot tub, and multiple places to sit and unwind. The hosts are friendly, welcoming and accommodating, and made sure our stay was enjoyable and that we had anything we needed. Susie has thought of everything when stocking the cottage, bath and "kitchen closet!" The location is ideal - walking distance to Magazine St and only several blocks to the St Charles trolley line so we could easily get downtown, to the French Quarter, etc. The cottage was the perfect place to escape to after enjoying all the Big Easy has to offer...Quiet, romantic and private... We were close to everything but were able to relax and rest when at the cottage. The perfect balance of being close to everything and also feeling like we had escaped to our own private hideaway! Absolutely loved the cottage and can't wait to return! This is the only place we want to stay when we visit New Orleans!

Lovely Cottage stay

  • 5 of 5
My visit to NOLA was most enjoyable with this lovely cottage stay. The hosts are wonderful, generous people, with no request seeming too much trouble. Coming from overseas, I was pleased to be in a lovely neighbourhood with privacy in the cottage. It is beautifully refurbished with quality bedding and towels. Fresh flowers were a lovely touch and most appreciated, as were the fresh fruit and treats in the pantry. Easy access to the rail Streetcar made interesting travel to tourist venues. The hot spa was a welcome bonus at the end of some very busy days. I highly recommend Ginny's Cottage and look forward to my return stay.

Uptown Homecoming

  • 5 of 5
As former residents of New Orleans, we wanted to stay in a neighborhood we loved when we came back for a wedding this November. Susie's cottage near Magazine Street was so beautiful, private, and restful--I am very happy that we found it. The cottage was stocked with everything we could have wanted, the hosts were helpful and respected our privacy, and the location was perfect. We loved everything about it--especially the hot tub!

Perfect NOLA mini vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wedding to attend in the NOLA area and decided to turn the trip into a mini vacation. Ginny's cottage was the perfect choice for us. As a retired military pilot & my wife being raised in Ireland, we have enjoyed living in & traveling to a variety of areas in the world though we had not visited the NOLA area together. The trip turned into a very relaxing mini vacation with an amazing amount of very interesting things packed into our stay. With the comfortable cottage waiting when we returned each evening, we enjoyed a considerable amount of comfortable relax time too. Ginny's cottage, pool/hot tub & deck was the perfect thing to return to after a day out on the town. The antique street car line being only 2 blocks away, after we returned from our wedding event and parked our car, we did not use it again until our departure.
We would defiantly highly recommend Ginny's cottage for a romantic get away for any couple who would enjoy a relaxing stay in NOLA. If our travels take us back to the area, we indeed would want to stay at Ginny's quaint, clean & comfortable cottage. Jim & Susie are excellent hosts & we thank them sincerely for our stay at their wonderful property, we look forward to a return one day!

Wonderful! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and decided to return to our beloved New Orleans for 5 days since we had spent part of our honeymoon there. We wanted to stay in the Garden District but really didn't want a hotel. We found Jim and Susie's cottage on VRBO and knew it was right for us. We were not disappointed. They are the most wonderful hosts. We had a private cottage to ourselves which was exactly as advertised and right outside the door was a swimming pool and hot tub. It was clean and comfortable with beautiful amenities. French Market coffee in the morning, bagels, cereals, fresh fruit and jams if we wanted to linger in the morning. As for Jim and Susie, well, they don't come any better. They would literally do just about anything to make the stay successful. We were going to Commander's Palace one night as part of our celebration and the weather turned really bad. I mean a horrible storm. We even thought of cancelling our reservation. Susie would have none of it and insisted on driving us over there while Jim called ahead to make sure we were treated like visiting royalty. And we were. We are forever grateful to them for making our 25th anniversary the very special occasion it was. On top of it all, the little cottage was as sweet and romantic as could be and just a couple of short blocks from the St Charles Streetcar in one direction and fabulous Magazine in the other. We look forward to going back again to enjoy their incredible southern hospitality. I'm planning our 30th already! If you're going to NOLA stay with Jim and Susie. They are just wonderful as is "our" sweet little Cottage.

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
