This Historic Creole Cottage was built in the 1840s and possesses all the unique charm of old New Orleans. Let’s visualize your arrival curbside to a brick-paved wooden cottage surrounded by wrought-iron fencing and adorned with large shuttered windows, red doors and a breezy porch. The scene is great for an outdoor snowball/po-boy picnic or cool cocktail prior to walking to the nearby art/antiques boutiques two blocks away on Magazine Street. Imagine the smell of barbecue from the smokehouse only a block away and crepe myrtle flower petals blowing in the breeze( a Garden District classic). Let’s enter the red door and experience a charming French provincial living space with modern amenities. The black granite countertop has stainless steel backsplash and is equipped with toaster, coffee maker, pastry/bagels and microwave. There is a seated dining area for 6. The table is covered with place settings and a centerpiece. The fridge is stocked with water and wine per your order. You feel at home. Now you can head upstairs to the loft or walk through the kitchen into a hallway.
Upstairs there are 3 beds (2 twins and 1 queen) in a 19 ft by 12 ft area. There is a television within an armoire and a closet. 2 seating areas are available as well. Upstairs is carpeted with a window for natural lighting.
If you remain downstairs there is a short hallway which leads pass a full immaculate bathroom and another private bedroom with a full bed and bench seating and finally ending in the office pallor. This multi-purpose office pallor has a roll top desk, a television, a laundry closet and large couch to lounge on. This is a great scene for kids to watch television as they wait to attend the zoo, aquarium or a parade which are minutes away.
After walking through the office pallor, you will want to lounge but the master suite awaits as you sashay through. The master suite has a bathroom and separate study area that can double as an additional room by closing the pocket doors. The bedroom has a queen bed and the study has the television with a sofa sleeper and a daybed that sleeps 2 each. There is also a double mirrored closeted hallway leading to master bathroom.

We are local couple who grew up in the area and met as children. We were in graduate school during the Hurricane Katrina and engaged. We had a Katrina wedding in another state and returned home in 2006. It has been a great experience to live and grow in New Orleans and we are raising our family here. After traveling various places in the world we have heard and experienced the uniqueness of our own city. We would like to share that experience with you.
Mia purchased this cottage in 2014
This property exudes what we feel "real" New Orleans charm is. We both grew up in shotgun-styled homes and we decided to put a modern twist on this one. We allow you to rent per group size. We ensure privacy and keyless entry. We are very flexible to ensure your stay is enjoyable.
The home itself is unique. How many modern homes can boast true new Orleans flavor from the 1800s with such beauty and elegance and antiquity. We aren't done either. Keep visiting because we plan to grow greater every year. Merci Beaucoup.
Airport and convention transportation services available per request and availability. Professionally catered meals available per request and availability. Sleeps small and sleeps big groups! Contact owner for special requests.
We loved our stay at Lala's cottage! We were a group of 11 all in our 20s that came down for Halloween. There were some complimentary bagels, coffe, milk, and cereal. There was one small issue with the shower and Mia was very accommodating and had it fixed right away. House is well kept and very clean. We only rented one side which had 3 bed rooms and 2 full bathrooms. Our group of friends are very close so it worked great! Also of note, the house is only 2 blocks away from magazine street (great for food and shopping) and a few more blocks to the trolley car that can take you right to canal and burbon!
We enjoyed our stay at Lala cottage. Home away from home. Very peaceful and quiet area. Mia was very polite and accommodating. Thank you!
We loved our stay at LaLa's! The house was perfect for our large group of 16 and was the perfect place to unwind after a day in New Orleans. Mia provided us with breakfast items and was quick to respond to the couple small issues we had. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips to New Orleans.
Me and my family had such a wonderful time. Its like being in your own home. Elegant but yet homie.
We loved our stay at the Cottage! It was convenient to walk to the streetcar to get downtown, had great space for a large group of mostly couples, and beautifully decorated!
