1830s Creole cottage drips with period details. Thoughtful, meticulous renovation stays true to history, offering bright, comfortable accommodation, modern convenience and high design. Located fast by the river, two blocks to the famous French Quarter and one block to the unparalleled nightlife of Frenchmen Street. Easy walk to all the best New Orleans has to offer. Lux linens and high-end furnishings complete this jewelbox. Treat yourself to something memorable.
This is a bargeboard cottage that probably served as lodging for rivermen. It was assembled from a scrapped flatboat that once floated down the Mississippi River. Floors, walls and soaring ceilings are ancient wood plank. Home is a point of interest on local historical tours. Neighborhood is lively and interesting; location is ultra-convenient. $100,000 renovation was completed in October 2017. In the thick of it but quiet, placid and weirdly zen.
Historic neighborhood, built to human scale. Easy walking, with a bike rental place just paces away. Mississippi river park is close, and a great place to promenade or picnic. Restaurants, jukejoints and coffee shops abound. Vivid nightlife is close (but not overwhelming)..
Park the car -- you can get around easily without it. Walk, bike, Uber. Bus, cab pedicab. Streetcar is two blocks away.
Pretty much everything you need to stay clean and comfortable is on hand. Beyond the basics, I don't stock much in the way of food or drink but you are welcome to what's there. There's a bodega about a block away, where you can load up on butter and eggs, beer and liquor & etc. Fully outfitted kitchen.
**A NOTE ABOUT THE LOFT**
The loft is semi-private space (sleeping and dressing areas cannot be seen from below but no door). The loft is fully outfitted with dresser, reading chair and full-sized bed but it is cozy. If two want to sleep up there, please examine the photos carefully to see if our home will work for you. The space works fine for most.
The couch downstairs can be converted to a bed. But don’t view this as an opportunity to add a seventh guest. Our city license allows six guests max, and this cap will be strictly enforced.
