About Lori Rockett

Hi! We are Lori and John. We're both born and raised here. John and I both love to cook and have a local catering company specializing in Creole cuisine. We love New Orleans and participate in just about everything! Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Essence, Voodoo, and all the fun festivals in between! We have great parks, golf courses, restaurants etc......We are super excited to host this VRBO in 2015 and would love to help with any info about New Orleans and surrounding areas.

Lori Rockett purchased this house in 2000

Why Lori Rockett chose Carrollton

We have lived in this Carrollton neighborhood for the last 17 years. It is a wonderful neighborhood with great neighbors and we also have a small park that hosts an Art fair once a month! The grocery store is 3blks away. We have restaurants, bars, vintage shopping, coffee shops that are within walking distance (6blks).

What makes this house unique

Our house has such a New Orleans flair! Gorgeous hard wood floors, vaulted ceiling, claw foot tub. We have made this house warm and comfortable, and of course a great kitchen and dining room for entertaining! This truly is your home away from home! Added bonus is a cute back patio that our past guests have loved.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

Lori’s home is magnificently comfortable, artfully decorated, spotlessly neat and clean and cozy to boot. Wonderfully located close to the French Quartet and NOLA’s graceful Garden District. Lori shared that her daughter is an artist who lives in New York. Throughout the home is marvelous contemporary art. Just sitting and relaxing after a busy was pleasure enough. Special thanks to Lori’s husband John who, on helped my son and a I repair a broken cooling reservoir on my Volvo SUV. Through innovation and a nearby auto stores we saved ourselves hundreds of dollars. Bravo John. When we return to New Orleans, reserving Lori’s Place will be the FIRST thing we do. Thank you for being wonderful hosts. Mark from Safety Harbor, FL

High Praise

  • 5 of 5

Lori & John are warm and gracious hosts. Our “home away from home” is exactly as pictured. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, in a great neighborhood and walking distance to excellent restaurants and the trolley. We would highly recommend a stay here.

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful home. It has all amenities. The house is warm and comfortable. We loved the new bathroom! We loved having a glass of wine on the back patio.

The neighborhood is great. We walked to the streetcar (2blks) and enjoyed the scenic ride to the French Quarter. The grocery store is a couple blks away and was very high end. We actually got boiled crawfish there! Highly recommend!
