We want our guests to live like a local during their stay here in New Orleans and feel the warmth of the city. We want you to remember this trip forever. This neighborhood the Faubourg Marigny, which borders the French Quarter, was developed by Bernard de Marigny in 1805 on his family's plantation. Marigny famously named the streets of his neighborhood Peace, History, Poets, Frenchmen, Greatmen, Goodchildren, Music, Love,and Craps to name a few. Many have been renamed today. He squandered the family fortune playing Craps(he brought the game to New Orleans) and with ladies of the night in Storyville, the red light district of New Orleans, till 1917. Storyville was located in the Faubourg Treme and is the birth place of Jazz. You can visit his tomb in the St.Louis Cemetery #1.
Wander around to see many different types of architecture we are famous for. Shotguns, Creole Cottages,Townhouses. Many with gingerbread woodwork and beautiful iron work. Two blocks from the cottage is Crescent park located along the mighty Mississippi River. A wonderful spot to enjoy a few drinks and watch port traffic from huge freighters and cruise boats from all over the world.
We provide our guests with bicycles so they can explore the city just as we do. New Orleans is phenomenal place for music lovers because live music can be found every single night of the week in dozens of nearby venues. The best are within walking distance from our property. Frenchmen Street is just a few blocks away, where you can find traditional dixieland jazz, blues, reggae, soul, and more at places like The Spotted Cat, The Blue Nile, DBA, and Three muses.
Eat your heart out, darling! Delicious food can be found everywhere. Mimi's in the Marigny is located just a block away from our place, and they not only have fantastic live music every night, but they have delicious tapas. Our favorite plate at Mimi's is fried goat cheese balls drizzled with honey! Another music venue also offering outstanding food is Three Muses. My God, everything is mouth watering. Travel to the end of the Bywater and find Bacchanal, a place which serves outstanding wines paired with 5-star food served on paper plates to the sounds of a live jazz band in an outdoor patio. Treat yourself to a fine dining experience at least once while you are here, in the French Quarter you'll find the world famous classic Creole restaurant, Antoine's, which offers a 3-course lunch on most days for around $20 with 25-cent cocktails! You can also ride you bike (or streetcar for $1.25) to the Garden District to do a similar lunch special at Commander's Palace, which offers 25-cent martinis! (Fine Dining Attire Required)

About the owner: I'm Brendan, born and raised in New Orleans. This property belong to my father that passed about 10yrs.ago.I have been providing historical tours from the seat of my mule-drawn carriage for over 24 years.We use mules instead of horses in New Orleans because of our climate.They are much stronger, sure footed and smarter also.I think I have the best job in the world. My love, Valerie, works as nurse at a local hospital. She moved to New Orleans from Mississippi a few years ago. We truly enjoy sharing our home, rental cottage, neighborhood, and city with travelers. I can point you in the right direction to just about anything this city has to offer. We thought it would be neat to offer small weddings here so I am licensed to do ceremony's.I haven't done one yet but looking forward to it.Its a perfect place for a couple that wants a small quite wedding that doesn't cost a fortune.
