Ruby and Peter were the perfect hosts and provided a delicious breakfast and helpful advice for the area. Ruby made me fell welcomed before I got there with her friendly visit on the phone. The manor is nicely decorated and the room was very comfortable and spacious. It was great to have enough room for a second person on the futon and a second half bath in the room.
There are several restaurants, a grocery and drugstore blocks from the manor and it was an easy trip to City Park and from there public transportation was close by. It's the ideal place to stay during Jazz fest. Lake Ponchartrain and the marina are very convenient as well.
