Caesar Guyot purchased this cottage in 1956

Why Caesar Guyot chose New Orleans

This property is very unique because of its rich history, its been in our family since 1956 and has weathered countless storms, without flooding. It was fully renovated just after Katrina which you will see in the fine details that has been put back into the property. Additionally, we used some of the finest furniture in our Guesthouse and all of the bathrooms are marble finished and the kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances . We've invested countless hours in the restoration because we are committed to our community and we are proud homeowners in it for the long haul. We are located in the Uptown/ Carrolton area of town, walking distance to Tulane and Loyola so we tend to cater to parents that come to visit their children at Tulane and Loyola as well as the traveler that wants a down home Local experience. Our prices are extremely reasonable and we have weekly, monthly and special rates for certain times of the year. We offer VIP packages with includes transportation, tours and lots more. The pictures really don't convey the real atmosphere that our guest experience so read the reviews in order to get the real guest perspective. Please give us a call to discuss your reservation today. Thank you and we hope to see you soon.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located in the Uptown/ Carrolton area of town, 1 block off of Maple St which has some of the best restaurants that New Orleans has to offer. There are cute little shops and boutiques, bars and outdoor cafes, not to mention a real authentic French Bakery and 2 coffee shops just next to it. Maple St even has one of the best Jewelry stores in town called Friends & Company, offering a impressive line of merchandise. For the ladies there is dress shops, shoe shops, hair & nail salons and a spa to pamper yourself. La Maison Prudeaux is only a few blocks off of the beautiful St Charles streetcar line so you don't really need a car, its about a 15 minute ride from the French Quarters on one of the most beautiful streets in America. We are walking distance from Audubon Park and Zoo and a short ride from the shops and cafes on Oak St which is located just on the other side of Carrolton. So needless to say if you want to 'Live Like a Local', have a unique experience on a budget please give us a call so we can assist you in planning your visit to The Big Easy. We'll take the guess work out of it for you and save you time and money. When you call ask for Caesar and I'll do my best to earn your business and make your experience memorable. Merci

Very small

  • 3 of 5

The owner was very accommodating. I had to message him because the cottage had a musty smell and my youngest daughter has bad allergies. He was very willing to move us to another location but I decided it would be too much of a hassle. It was a great location and I'm sure he has already taken care of the smell.

The Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write a really good review because this is my home away from home when I'm in New Orleans. Fabulous neighborhood! Street parking if you have a car or you can walk to the street car. Run to Audobon Park. Wonderful restaurants in walking distance. Apartment is small but comfortable. Cesar is very responsive to any questions or concerns. I love the Cottage. Shhhhh... Well kept secret

Great location, some problems

  • 4 of 5

Pros: fantastic location, easy parking, felt safe, attractive decor, quiet property. Good value in terms of meeting our needs for convenience, dog-friendliness, no stairs and laundry. The cons are all about maintenance: loudly leaking kitchen faucet, the ceiling fan over the bed was too loud to use because it was unbalanced, the window a/c's were too loud to use and the other windows didn't seem to open. I'd be happy to stay here again in the winter, but the other 9 months of the year, I'd want to know that these items had been fixed. Wifi was iffy. Oh, and I don't remember seeing a futon in the bedroom, just a chair and the queen sized bed and there's a sofa bed in the living area. The unit is fine for 2 people, maybe a child on the sofa bed but hard to imagine more than that.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the warm review, we are happy that you enjoyed your overall experience with us. Customer satisfaction is very high on our list of priorities and we truly appreciate your input but next time a simple email or phone call will suffice. Since bringing some of these issues you had with The Cottage to our attention, we have scheduled repairs as soon as the unit is free for a duration of time that we can address it. We've change out the futon for a newer, more comfortable trundle bed which can sleep two. The a/c is being changed out to a new split unit that will heat and cool the unit perfectly as well as all of the windows to increase energy efficiency. Also a new ceil fan has been ordered and will be installed asap. again thank you and we hope to see you again in the near future.

We loved the cottage and would certainly recommend it to others. Great location and although it was on the small side, it made it cozy and it was comfortable.

Cozy, quaint cottage.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was exactly what we expected with a very comfortable bed and was clean. It is small but for the amount of time we were there, quite comfortable. Very close to restaurants and trolley to downtown New Orleans. Not a place to spend a lengthy stay at but a great place to stay if you are out and about during the day. I would recommend it for no more than two people with possibly a child. We did note that the sink faucet was leaking a little which has created mineral deposits on the faucet and they need to change the a/c filters.
