Why Damon chose New Orleans

The elegant townhouse at 838 Camp Street was designed by James Harrison Dakin (1806-1852), an influential architect in New Orleans who also designed the landmark St. Patrick’s Cathedral down the street. The land was first owned by Gasquet, Parish & Co., a commission merchant company largely responsible for the initial development of the American Sector. Construction on this townhouse, originally one of nine sister “rowhouses,” began in the early 1840s.

The first known inhabitant of the townhouse was Walter Cox, a cotton merchant and owner of the cotton firm W. Cox & Co. established in 1858. It appears that the Civil War resulted in Cox’s firm going bankrupt, as his home was sold in a sheriff’s auction in 1867. The house was purchased by attorney Alfred J. Philips, partner in the esteemed New Orleans firm of Roselins & Philips. Sometime during the 1870s, ownership of the property transferred from Philips to his brother-in-law, influential attorney John Blackstone Cotton from Georgia, who married Alfred’s younger sister Sophia in 1852. Blackstone served as a New Orleans City Attorney in 1850, as a District Judge (1853-1857) and as Superintendent of Elections (1857-1858). During the Civil War, Cotton served as a Confederate Army Officer from 1861 until he fell ill in the field in 1862.

Margaret Robinson Barnett (1887–1977) purchased the property in May of 1921. Margaret owned and operated “Dixie Stove Works” out of what is now the property’s commercial space at 840 Camp. The company boasted itself as “the South’s largest manufacturer of stove parts.” Margaret and her husband also housed “Roomers” in the properties residential units beginning in 1930. These renters hailed from such varied places as Germany, New York, Louisiana, Minnesota, and South Dakota. The residence had become primarily commercial in the latter half of the 20th century, with Dixie Stove Works as its last commercial occupant.

Perfect place and set up. Warehouse district is the place to be

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived Kevin made check in a breeze. I was pleasantly surprised that they had one parking space included with the property. I knew from experience that that can be an extra $20 - $40 a day at any hotel in downtown New Orleans.

The place was spacious, and easily slept our entire party. The back balcony view of the crescent city connection is hard to beat. Can't recommend this place enough just based on the location.

Great location for a weekend in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us stayed here for a Bachelorette Weekend in New Orleans and could not have picked a better place to stay!

Plenty of space and sleeping areas for everyone, the location was perfect - within walking distance to the French Quarter and other great places to eat just a few blocks from the rental.

Kevin was very accommodating to work with and even allowed us to change our check-out time. Very much appreciated!!

Great space for large group. The ambience is truly New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival, we were thrilled with the location. Not too far from French quarter. We immediately contacted the manager to get our code for the rental and he was quick to respond and make sure we had all the amenities we needed. We initially needed more towels because we had 9 ladies total and once we told Kevin, we had the towels immediately on our doorstep. Don, another associate was at the rental and gave us some good advice on what to do in Nola. Very hospitable group to work with. We all enjoyed our stay in Nola and in Damon's rental. It's about 20-30 mins walk to French quarter so it's fine with good walking shoes. It's a quick uber ride if you're in heels. The ladies had breakfast on the balcony one morning a nice area to hang out and enjoy being in Nola. Once again Kevin was quick to respond and easy to get a hold of. Would highly recommend this place.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing, my friends (9) and I fit very comfortably in the 3rd and 4th unit. Very spacious and can accommodate to smaller parties as well. The space was very versatile. While staying we realized that there was a 2nd floor. We kindly ask for the second floor and the owner was flexible enough to let us stay for an additional price. During this whole exchange, there was speedy response time and were very respectful. The place had a amazing historic feel with some contempary charm. Not to mention the absolutely wonderful location, which is sandwiched right in between the Garden District and the French quarters. The place was also clean and had a wonderful selection of clean linens and towels. I rate this trip 10 not just because we're in a wonderful city of NOLA but because of the place We rented. Will definitely stay here when I return to NOLA.
