A 5 bedroom 1910's charmer in the heart of town!
Welcome! The Okra Inn is a renovated Camelback cottage in historic Mid City area on the Canal Street Car line. Enjoy a 10 minute walk to Bayou St John and City Park (home of New Orleans Museum of Art), and a 15 minute street car ride to the Historic New Orleans French Quarter. Around the corner from the famous Angelo Brocato’s and many other restaurant options. Blocks away from many other famous New Orleans restaurants, such as Mandina’s, Liuzza’s, and Katie’s. I also have tons of insider knowledge on exploring the City!
The house is great for groups, but I have neighbors who need to be respected. This house is best for groups who plan to do their partying away from the house.

About Lindsay Pick
I am a born and raised seventh generation New Orleanian, and am the former co owner of Louisiana Lost Lands Environmental Tours, we provide educational kayak tours of Louisiana's vanishing wetlands primarily by kayak. Prior to owning The Okra Inn, I was the producer and writer for a PBS television series that focused on coastal land loss in Louisiana. I received a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of New Orleans program, where I focused on issues of flood protection and coastal restoration. I believe the survival of our communities is dependent upon public interest and involvement. Being a New Orleans native, I offer an extensive knowledge of the area, and I'm educated in southern charm.
Lindsay Pick purchased this House in 2010
Why Lindsay Pick chose Mid-City
I chose this house because I fell in love with it 7 years ago- the stain glass and crown molding are hard to beat. This beauty from the 1910's has abundant space, with two living rooms and two dinning rooms and two kitchens. It's a fantastic location in beautiful Mid City, convenient for the French Quarter, CBD, Uptown, City Park, Bayou St John, the Interstate and The Lake. And I'm located right next door and easily available for questions and advice on exploring the town.
What makes this House unique
New Orleans is a City for stoop sitting and chatting with neighbors and passerby's. One of my favorite recommendations is going around the corner to the seafood market and buying a few pounds of crawfish or shrimp and sitting on the porch with some beer. In the evening time they'll be plenty of folks on their way to the popular Venezia's and Angelo Brocato's down the street. It's a great way to people watch and even meet some locals. The New Orleans tradition is to do this in a laid back and respectful way-- the friendly neighbors do react to loud parties.

Wonderful mid-town house.
Had a wonderful time at the Okra Inn. Great spot and great host. Thank y’all.
Incredibly charming property.
Great place for our extended family who gathered for a New Orleans wedding at the Degas House. We don't get to see each other often, so this was wonderful - way better than separate hotel rooms. The Mid City location is very convenient to all. Lindsay was very helpful and accommodating. My daughter and my sister both reported being gently rocked in a bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms and we wondered if anyone else has reported this in the past. If you appreciate historic architecture and charm with modern conveniences, this place is for you. If you are offended by shabby chic and need everything ultra modern, probably not the place for you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Holly Kotiadis
couldn't ask for more in a vacation stay
Lindsay was a great communicator and a great hostess. Although we arrived a few hours early, she was happy to make arrangements with us to drop off luggage so that we could explore the city.
The property is really unique and beautiful. It is also the perfect distance from which to quickly get to Bourbon St/Superdome while also being far enough away to decompress from the madness.
Cant wait to get back there!
Great place. Lindsay was very nice and our experience in that house was amazing.
Great family space
Location was perfect for our NOLA trip for Loyola's 2017 graduation. Lots of eateries nearby. Very friendly neighborhood with a good deal of foot traffic. Would have given 5 stars if the duplex had internal access between the two sides. Instead, entrance to each side was from the exterior doors only.
We had a great time!!
Loved the ambiance!
Located a block from the Canal Streetcar line. Enjoy easy access to The French Quarter 24/7.
The location is also steps away from popular restaurants, bakery/gelato shop and seafood market. Also close to bars.
City Park and Bayou St John are close by too.
