About the Property

Adorable one bedroom cottage with private courtyard in historic Holy Cross.

Totally renovated cottage in historic Holy Cross with bamboo floors, full kitchen, wifi/cable, ac/heat mini-split, tiled bath, private courtyard two blocks from the beautiful Mississippi River and just a few minutes drive into hip Bywater and the French Quarter.

Lucky Horse Show Cottage is the perfect place to relax, write your next book, or as a retreat to rest up for a day exploring the plantations or the bayous and a night enjoying dinner at Galatoire's and drinks at the Carousel Lounge.

Your dogs will love the courtyard and walking on the levee past the historic Jackson Barracks into Old Arabi for lunch.

Car: Recommended

Historic Holy Cross is just a quick ten minute drive (with traffic) into hip Bywater and the French Quarter. We're a quiet, stunningly beautiful community nestled next to the Mississippi River which is incredibly close to all the fun, history, and nightlife of New Orleans. Bienvenue!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We're two retired teachers who love literature, theatre, animals, and good food.

Why the Owner Chose Holy Cross, New Orleans, LA, USA:
We absolutely fell in love with Holy Cross because it's a few minutes from downtown but feels like a small, rural village. The Mississippi River is gorgeous, the trees, birds, wildlife is abundant and the neighborhood is so friendly and peaceful. Heaven! We moved here in 2010 (two women!) when the neighborhood was sparsely populated post-Katrina, have never felt unsafe, and love all our new neighbors who have bought here and renovated. We do have security cameras on Lucky Horse Shoe Cottage (and on our house right next door) and the cottage has an ADT Alarm system for your peace of mind. Come see Holy Cross-it's beautiful, timeless, quiet, and an historic part of this great city.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Staying in Holy Cross is the perfect way to enjoy New Orleans; you can go go go all day and night and return to Lucky Horse Show Cottage for peace and rejuvenation. Yet, you are just minutes from all the fun, food, history, and joy that is the French Quarter, Garden District, Bywater, Marigny...
