Overview

About the property

House attached to Bakery, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

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 7. 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 9 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 New Orleans

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To Chamain



The Quinns came to the town of New Orleans

To see the many famous sites and scenes.

We sojourned at a place called Breads on Oak

We thought it really must have been a joke

For back in Canada we never saw

Bread growing on a tree—it’s against the law.



We rode a boat way deep into a swamp

Where gators, turtles, snakes are known to romp.

And toured the Quarter on a cart and horse

For Bourbon Street we had to see of course.

A city tour by bus was very good.

By morning’s end we surely understood

The ups and downs of NOLA’s quite a range

We saw the god, the ugly and the strange.



We maneuvered Grandma’s wheelchair all around

Where narrow streets and traffic do abound.

And grandson Levi most enjoyed the zoo

Along with all the many school kids, too.



The City Park is something to enjoy

We spent a lovely morning there, oh boy.

The sculptures are amazing I must say

Though some of them are quite a bit risqué.



The City is a place of big parades

Where people celebrate for days and days.

And beads are given tourists by the ton

And thousands hand in trees when all is done.



So many thanks we offer you Chamain.

We hope someday to visit you again

And taste again the goodies that you bake

If journey back to NOLA we can make.

Bakery heaven

  • 5 of 5

I loved the proximity to the bakery! The food was delicious and Chamain treated us with a plate of goodies our first morning. The house was so clean, comfortable, and spacious. The pictures don't do the house justice. It is so much bigger in person. I also loved that the garage was enclosed. We felt so safe in a city we didn't know because of that. I do wish there was a private outside seating area without cats. We wanted to take our baby out at night, but we heard cats fighting a couple times. We are definitely coming back though!

Thank you for opening your home to us! We enjoyed our stay and the bread house accommodated all our needs. We were not overcrowded and everyone enjoyed the bakery treats! If your home is available on our next trip to the NOLA, we will request your home again. Again, thank you.

Getting the most out of the Big Easy was really easy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Breads on Oak Bakery Guesthouse. We appreciated the welcome gift of a bottle of wine since the time of our arrival didn't allow for the regular plate of delicious pastries. The house was very comfortable. The streetcar system is a short distance away and made it an easy and convenient way to travel downtown. We look forward to returning.
