The Foundation @ OGH is about as eclectic and uniquely New Orleans as it gets... This renovated space has an expansive open feel which combines things new, salvaged, re-invented, old, & colorful, a mixture of styles and textures that blend into a beautifully furnished space with no amenity or detail left undone! It offers one king, bunk twins, stained cement floors, concrete counters, gorgeous bath (with chandelier!) and beautiful detail and furnishings throughout.
ORLEANS GUEST HOUSE is steps from Bayou Saint John, a short walk to City Park, NOMA, and 24h Cafe Au Lait & Beignets,The Fairgrounds & Jazz Fest, blocks to the Carrollton Street Car line, and a bike ride to the French Quarter, CBD, Arts District, River Front, Downtown and much, MUCH more... Units at OGH are independent, no common or shared areas, each with private keyed entrances and reserved off-street parking. The Foundation, just like the other units at OGH- is as unique as the city of NOLA!
You’ll have total privacy with keys to your exclusive entry & exit. This is not shared space as with a traditional B&B setting. I live on-site (and available if needed) but, as an on-site host, my philosophy is based on total respect for your privacy. If you do need me, I’m there! I believe in mutual respect for privacy while remaining always available for needs or recommendations. In your room, you will have a guide to just about everything, but as a local (and a foodie) I’m happy to recommend my favorite "local" stuff to do!

**Be sure and take a look at the other OGH listing #s...
NOTE...By combining "Foundation Room" and "The Crescent" , (both at our Elaine Place address and separated only by a locked cypress door), accommodations can be expanded to form of 3-4 BRs (King, Queen, Full, & Bunk Twins), 2 BAs, and of course, twice the DR , LR, and Kitch space, while providing separate "suite" privacy for families/couples/friends traveling together. Special pricing would apply for combining these two adjacent units (or any 2 or more units offered by OGH).
