This property is newly refurbished and elegant when you walk in, boasting 10 foot ceilings, a fireplace and an enticing staircase leading to the lofted second floor. It also features hardwood floors, three skylights and the lofted bedrooms that make this destination a one and only tribute to New Orleans, the Marigny, Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. This picturesque hidden gem is for Mardi Gras people, friends who want to party in the 'Big Easy', couples, and a great spot for a guys getaway or girls retreat. It sits within the gated property of an ornate 1800's Victorian Home and it is on the National Registry of Historic Properties. The neighborhood is blossoming with coffee shops, cafes and unique retail shops. If you go one block to St Claude St you have a bustling area with: karaoke, brass Bands, jazz and music of all kinds with four bars and clubs within that block of Marigny and St. Claude alone. A couple blocks down St Claude is St Roch's Market with all types of food and shops including a wellness center. New Orleans has it all: SuperBowl, Final Four, Saints, Pelicans, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, VooDoo Fest and Southern Decadence just to name a few.

About Debra & James
We are from New England with ties to New Orleans. Our cousin lived here for many years working at LSU. Our youngest daughter attended Loyola University, graduating just recently and now working on a PHD in chemistry at Boston College. This gave us a good reason to come down and visit. We fell in love with New Orleans at first site: the music , the people , the food and our properties! The fact is, the people here are just great; so hospitable and welcoming. The experiences we have had here are heart- warming. Since our kids have all moved out we now have two dogs and other animals. The last addition to our household is from New Orleans himself, a sweet mix breed that we adopted from the street. He is a gentle, beautiful dog you see in the photo of the property! You don't have to worry though if you're not a dog lover, he is not at the Marigny street property, he is home with us! We pride ourselves on having guests enjoy our property here. If you choose the "Painted Lady Cottage" you would have made a great decision. It is a clean NOLA style cottage with art and a homey feeling. It's a great little place with a lot of feelings and it will inspire you to love life and be yourself.
Debra & James purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Debra & James chose Faubourg Marigny
It's an Historic Property close to everything. It is the cottage behind the estate home called the "Painted Lady" on the National Registry and a landmark for New Orleans. Many visitors stop by just to take pictures of the beautiful Estate home which leads to the cottage around back of the estate. The Cottage is small with open lofted area and staircase that accents it's beauty. Plus, New Orleans speaks for itself: Great night life, shows, tours, entertainment, sporting events, The Garden District, Bourbon Street the French Quarter and Frenchmen St. With all the goings on here: Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Southern Decadence, the grand Mississippi River, Jackson Square, The Super Dome, Sugar Bowl, Super Bowl and Final Four, The Saints and The Pelicans, Golf, Fishing, Parades, Parties, People; plus, Tulane and Loyola... it's the best place in the USA for a good time! Also, along the Mississippi at Jackson Square are horse drawn carriages and Café Du Monde, the home of the beignet.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, location, location and the location is simply fantastic: if you walk one block to St Claude you have jazz clubs, big bands or street performers and restaurants galore usually Cajun style, if you can handle it! If you go the other way, on Esplanade, there is The "Port of Call" restaurant or a bit further toward the Quarter you may run into a marching band or a corner quintet or a solo guitarist. They are all great and at all times of the day or night. Don't forget the neighborhood cafe and coffee shops that are everywhere. Just west is the Garden District, not far away either. Hop on the trolley at St Claude or take a cab or Uber and stroll down the magnificent St. Charles Ave. and visit the many elegant mansions, shops, hotel bars and diverse restaurants. And while there, don't forget to visit Magazine Street, another popular hangout for a great shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Continue along the trolley route to Audubon Park, the Golf Course and the Zoo. Here you will see the great architecture of Loyola and Tulane Universities. Tour the mansions neighborhoods to get another view of early 1900's New Orleans history and the Garden District. The Homes over there are spectacular, to say the least!

Very comfortable and great location
We really enjoyed this adorable little cottage!
Great place and great value
Everything you need is there! Clean, colorful, and quiet!
This is a lovely place, and within walking distance to the quarter.
It has all of the essentials and then some. The only thing that didn't work for us, and probably was my fault for not paying close enough attention to the home description, was the open floor plan with regard to the bedrooms. There was no privacy. But otherwise, everything was great!
Such a great location
We had a great experience with this stay. There were 4 adults in my party and there was space for us. However, there was not much privacy with just the blankets separating the beds, but the posting was transparent about this so we knew what we were coming into. The house is really cute and private and in such a great location, we were able to walk everywhere, and when we chose to Uber it was very cheap to get everywhere. We all loved our stay and would come back!
picture of house is not what you get
The property was clean and the neighborhood delightful
the loft is not really separated and the ceilings are low if you are very tall
wifii was good and though the carriage house is in the back it was well worth the price we paid.
A great stay in Marigny!
It is not a 4 or 5 Star but we did not expect it to be. Location was great as was close to French Quarter and most of the old downtown area. We walked to and from several times. Never felt unsafe as main streets are well lit. A very good grocery store basically right across the street which was open late hours. We rented a vehicle but maybe didn't get our moneys worth out of it as so close to everything. We did take it to go to a Plantation Tour and then tootled around on the way back coming in to the West side of NOLA (i.e. the Garden District). The day we left we had a few hours so did some more touring with it. We had 3 in our party. If you have 4 or more then 1 bathroom may be a problem but worked for us. Porch flooring at the entrance could use some repair as boards getting rotted. Cottage inside was good; beds very comfortable; never had issue with noise at night just heard a few train whistles. WiFi reception very good and TV had adequate number of channels. FQ area is busy most of the time but lots of things to see and hear so really enjoyed it. The architecture all over is unique so was a highlight for sure. Marigny is an older area but just made it all the better as felt like we were really living the life of NOLA.
Thank you for being candid with us. It is the old section of Nola, yet it has it identity and I do hope you had great time in our city.
This residence is one block to Elysian Fields and another two blocks to Esplanade. There is public transportation one block away at the corner of St Claude and Elysian Fields. The cottage is only 2 blocks to Frenchmen Street with many restaurants and music establishments and another 3 blocks to the French Quarter. Many nights you will actually see live brass bands playing on the street at Frenchmen St.
On Frenchmen Street there is an 'art gallery' for all your Nola treasures and your shopping pleasure. It is also about a ten minute walk to Bourbon Street! The Super Dome is 2 miles and the Garden District about 4 miles. This is a great place to come for Tulane and Loyola graduations! Louis Armstrong Park is only about 1/2 mile walk. The Mississippi River tours are just a short walk away along with Harrah's Casino and the famous Café Du Monde and the Original French Market coffee stand. Additionally, Canal street is a bit further up which runs into Bourbon Street and the Parade routes. There are coffee shops, local bars with entertainment and some of the best food New Orleans has to offer. Decatur Street is the place for some of the best seafood around. Enjoy the street music daily which is an integral part of the home of Jazz music, New Orleans! There is also a horse race course 3 miles called the Fairgrounds.
