Guestbook comments from the manager

We hope you will love our beautiful uptown New Orleans home!

Although the home was built circa 1910, we have just finished MAJOR renovations and the home is fully equipped with brand new furniture, appliances, central air and heat, flat screen cable TV with DVD players, modern kitchen, etc.

One of the greatest things about this home is its location in beautiful uptown New Orleans.

It is a quick 10 minute drive to downtown New Orleans and world-famous French Quarter.

Conveniently located for all of the New Orleans festivals and sporting events.

Fantastic New Orleans location

  • 5 of 5

The Dryades House was perfect for our Birthday celebration. It was extremely comfortable and the amenities in this home met our every need. Great neighborhood with many restaurants within walking distance. It was very convenient to all of the great New Orleans neighborhoods. Will definitely try and stay here whenever I come back to NOLA.

Perfect way to spend your NOLA visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

I lived in NOLA in the mid 80s, and have always dreamed of moving back to my heart city. I was lucky enough to be able to visit for 2 months on my most recent visit. To say that The Dryades House exceeded my expectations is putting it lightly. The house is quaint, well mantained and a perfect example of a shotgun NOLA house. The owners were accommodating and VERY helpful. The house was well stocked with essentials so I didn't need to get to a store immediately to buy things. The absolute best part of the house tho', was it's location, which is just 3 blocks from St Charles Ave and 1 block from the heart of uptown. I was only 3 blocks from the Mardi Gras parades!! The house is also only 3 blocks from the street car that runs up and down St. Charles. Great restaurants are within walking and street car distance. Pascal's Manale, Vincent's, Camilla Grill. While, sadly, I realize a move back to NOLA probably isn't in the cards, I have already booked The Dryades House for next year!!
