Common Areas & Grounds

Elegance permeates the atmosphere of this beautiful Italianate-style home. Ceiling medallions are a hallmark in the foyer, dining room, parlor and solarium, while the primary focal highlight of this New Orleans B & B’s interior is the convergence of three separate archways, which extend over the double-parlor and solarium. The union of these arches reaches toward the floor and is suspended effortlessly in mid-air — the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony or the renewal of your marriage vows!

The parlor and solarium of our New Orleans B & B are elegantly appointed with antique Victorian furnishings as well as a 1912 player piano. The dining room features an 11-foot oak table which provides a casually elegant setting for breakfast. Eleven fireplaces grace the home, including two in the double-parlor, which features Italian marble mantelpieces. Unique cypress mantels add their own distinctive flavor to each guest room’s ambiance. Original cypress millwork and transoms exist throughout the home. Most bathrooms feature vintage clawfoot tubs and showers.

The kitchen is open to guests seeking a drink or a snack from our complimentary beverage refrigerator and/or snack basket. Guests have access to the microwave, toaster and microwave, but Fire Marshall regulations prohibit guests from cooking on premises.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina afforded us the opportunity to transform the lush tropical garden of this New Orleans B & B into a stunning space which showcases our in-ground swimming pool and hot tub, classically styled using Travertine tile to mimic the Italianate architecture of the home. The area still provides a great setting for sipping morning coffee, reading a favorite novel, enjoying an afternoon cocktail or enjoying a late-night talk with your sweetheart after a long day in New Orleans. The base of the home’s original cistern still provides a home for our Rebecca fountain and goldfish, while other ponds and fountains adorn the garden.
