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.

Very nice & quiet

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at "The cottage" for a couple days during the Essence Festival. The home was very neat. I wouldn't recommend more than 2 or 3 people staying as it is a perfect fit for just 2. We will definitely keep this property in mind for our next visit.

Great, the location was amazing not to far but not to close to the main attractions about a 10-20min drive depending on where your going and traffic. Great for sleeping in! Had a a couple of places and coffee shops right around the corner! Defiantly would stay there again!

Perfect for jazzfest...or any weekend

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I recently stayed in the cottage for jazzfest weekend. The neighborhood was charming, very pedestrian friendly. The cottage was perfect for two, small but very well appointed. Comfortable beds and nice linens. Caeser was a gracious host and allowed early check-in. Very reasonably priced, especially for jazzfest! We had a great time!!!!!

Great location but very small

  • 4 of 5

The location of this unit is really nice and the neighborhood is terrific. The unit was very clean and neat however, we did detect a musty smell that dissipated after having the ac on for awhile but was still present. The bedroom is nice but no drawers or place to put your clothes although there is an ample closet to hang clothes. The bed was very comfortable and the day bed will be very comfortable to sleep on but was awkward to just sit on. As noted by others, the fridge is a tiny half size unit that does not have ice but is perfect for keeping a few things cold although there were no cups other than coffee mugs for drinks. Stove and sink are pretty much not usable but there are so many great places for food, coffee, etc. just around the corner that this did not matter. AC is very noisy but works well. Bathroom was clean with really nice towels but again very small. The owner seemed really accommodating when I asked if we could arrive early. Overall I would recommend this for 2 people as the location is great and the price is terrific for anyone on a budget.

This is a great location. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us.

  • 4 of 5

Liked the house. If you cook, be mindful that you have a 2-eye stove. There was no hot water in the kitchen. It is a dorm-size fridge. Knowing that, I will happily stay again but will be prepared. Very clean. Cozy. Nice courtyard.

Our quick trip to New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The unit was small, but perfect for two. The patio was wonderful to drink our morning coffee on. We loved the location, Maple Street was awesome. The short walk to the street car was perfect for getting around. Can't wait to bring my husband back with me.
