Attached to the Breads on Oak bakery ( is this beautiful (1800sf.) 100 year old house with 3 bedroom and 2 baths, plus a pull out loveseat, sleeping 6. The house includes a full kitchen stocked with all appliances except for a full oven; instead we have a toaster/oven broiler. (Also see our "Bakery Studio for 1 to 2 guests, VRBO #691222. which can be added to the house at a discounted rate for up to 8 guests). The bakery is open Wednesday thru Sunday for organic artisan breads, coffees, sandwiches, soups, salads & vegan pastries! Bakery House is located on New Orleans' famous & fun (yet non-touristy) Oak Street, full of restaurants, music clubs, antique stores and clothing shops. And we're only six blocks from the streetcar line for easy access to the Historic French Quarter, Garden District, Universities, Audubon Zoo and Park, Convention Center and Superdome, and just 1 block from the paved river levee path for miles of walking, running or biking.
Although on Oak Street, the house is tucked away and pretty quiet except for the occasional train whistle which adds to the charm. Bakery House has just been renovated and is fully furnished and decorated with a cool collection of vintage and modern furniture and art.
Amenities include free WiFi and Cox cable with a large screen tv, covered parking for one car (additional covered parking for a 2nd car is $15/day) plus easy street parking as well. The first floor bedroom has a king size bed with a tv next to a private bath. Upstairs there are two adjoining rooms, one with two twin beds which can join to form a king and another room with a full size bed and a precious little nook where kids love to sleep. The shared second bath is off the room with the full bed (note: twin room guests must pass through full size bedroom to get to upstairs bath). All beds and linens have super comfy 100% cotton linens--with mostly organic cotton--and we use no chemicals in our cleaning products.
We provide a plate of our bakery's pastries for your stay. Also available are coffee, tea, and other goodies to make your stay special and enjoyable. You have a private patio, too!
The best part of staying at Bakery House is that you'll be able to wake up to the smell of fresh baked breads from our artisan bakery, Breads on Oak (bakery is open Wednesday through Sunday)!

About Chamain O'Mahony
Sean & Chamain bought the building & house in December of 2011 to create a bakery for artisan breads with an attached guesthouse. Sean has been a financial systems consultant, traveling the country to universities and Fortune 100 businesses, but would rather bake bread. Chamain is an artist (paints the Creole Cat) and principal with The BOS Group, a business consulting firm, who loves healthy baking and eating vegan muffins & sweets. Chamain was born and raised in New Orleans, graduating from Tulane in chemistry with an MBA from Emory. While in Atlanta, Chamain met Sean in an Italian Restaurant where they both worked. They married and later moved home to New Orleans while Sean received his MBA from Tulane. That was almost 20 years ago. Sean & Chamain have been married 25 years and have 2 precious Siamese cats & 2 rescue kitties at their primary home. They love traveling abroad and discovering healthy, new & exotic foods. They both enjoy exercising--Sean likes running and Chamain prefers yoga--but both loves walking on the levee right outside of Bakery House!
Chamain O'Mahony purchased this House in 2011
Why Chamain O'Mahony chose Leonidas
The bakery & guesthouse are 5 minutes from the O'Mahony home, which is right between the airport and the French Quarter--and only a block from the river for biking, running or walking the levee. Oak Street, is the coolest neighborhood in NOLA, too!
What makes this House unique
We love walking Oak Street, with all the fun antique shops, restaurants, coffeehouses, consignment shops and the streetcar line. And the river, where you can walk, bike or run the levee (no cars allowed), is only a block away!

Another great week at Bakery House - Breads On Oak
This is a wonderful location and layout for a family or friends vacation. Kitchen is fully stocked.
The new dishwasher and refrigerator are very nice. The beds are comfortable - 2 full baths with plenty of room in each bathroom is welcome. Large screen tv, plenty of seating and space. We all have our privacy. The living areas are large enough to have us all together when we wanted to be. The added bonus is the bakery right there. The breads, baguettes, croissants and brioches are the perfect way to start a day. The highlight of the stay is the hospitality, happiness and sincerity of Chamaine & Sean. They love life, it shows and it is contagious. We will be back - again.
The best bread in the world and so I ate my way first through the Bakery then through the apartment and then through the city of New Orleans.
Baguette For a Good Time in NOLA
First off, I’m not going to use all the superlatives that are generally used for these reviews. Suffice it to say that if this place is available for the time you plan to be visiting New Orleans, GRAB IT! Your hosts (Chamain and Sean) will do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible, including having an assortment of baked goodies waiting when you arrive. If your stay includes any day from Wednesday through Sunday, you’re extra lucky, because you’re only 5 steps from a thriving bakery that offers everything from quiche to cake, so no breakfast preparations! There’s plenty of room in the house, so you won’t be cramped for space, our grand children (14 & 9) liked taking turns sleeping in the curtained off alcove upstairs. You’ll be a couple of blocks from the levee for some walking, bike riding or sunset watching and the famous “Jacque Imos” restaurant is just 2 1/2 blocks away (hint...get there just before 5, or plan on waiting until after 8). There are other restaurants a couple of more blocks away with something for every taste (try DTB for a more upscale meal). If you’re headed to the French Quarter, the St Charles street cars are about a 15 minute walk plus a leisurely ride through the Garden District (beware, the trolleys can be crowded), or you can be there by car in about 20 minutes, but then you have the adventure of driving around the “Quarter” looking for a parking place (this is actually fun for some of us). I hope you get the impression that our month at BOO (Bakery On Oak, as Chamain pointed out) was greatly enjoyed by us and our visitors and we hope it’s available the next time we visit NOLA.
The house had everything we had hoped for!
The neighborhood is awesome and very safe. Lots of places to walk to. The street car is a short walk but it does take a long time to get anywhere on that thing. I highly recommend but make sure you give yourself
Some time! The house itself is absolutely lovely! We will stay here again! Xoxo thank you!!!!!
Spacious property. Great location.
We enjoyed a very comfortable 6 night stay. The layout of the house is such that our two distinct parties could share the common areas yet have enough private space so as not to intrude upon each other.
The neighborhood is safe and walkable. We loved the eclectic restaurants, bars and friendly locals.
We found the attached private garage very convenient when on-street parking might otherwise prove challenging.
The beds were extremely comfortable and the house is loaded with every conceivable amenity that you can imagine. And don't forget to stop in at the bakery! It is filled with amazing yummies!
Book with confidence. The hosts are instantly attentive to any question or need you may have.
We had a N'awlins Good Time! Thanks
A true NOLA experience!
We were looking for a great place to stay outside of the French Quarter, and this bakery guest house was the perfect fit. A short Uber or cab ride from this charming guest house will take you into all of the action of the Quarter, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars right within walking distance as well. We woke up to the smell of delicious bakery goods each morning, and were treated to a platter of amazing pastries when we arrived. Then, to our delight, we had a bag of heavenly breads delivered to our doorstep on our last day in town. The guest house is a pure New Orleans charmer, and was the perfect size for our party of 4. The owners were very responsive when we contacted them. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay, and would definitely recommend the Breads On Oak Guest House to anyone that wants a great experience in The Big Easy!
Attached to Bakery House is our artisan bakery & cafe, with organic breads, pastries, sandwiches & soups. And within blocks are funky bars, restaurants, coffeeshops & antique shops, walking & biking path along the Mississippi River, Streetcar rides to the French Quarter. There's also Hollygrove Market for fresh produce and other goodies open every day. We also have listed the "Bakery Studio" for one or two guests.
