We were there for a really unique experience: a 5 night writing retreat. The house was beautiful and a special place to be in. We couldn't have asked for more charm and history, which inspired all of us immensely. We rented the whole complex, and the cottages are extra special too. Especially the French Quarter and Mardi Gras, which would be perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway close to the fun of the Quarter but not in the midst of the wild scene. It is also a few short blocks from Frenchman Street, which is so much fun.
And Wendy and Don are amazing people. Whatever we needed, they were there for us. The house is from 1808 so it is quirky, but any time something needed to be solved, they were available. Don is also very good at trivia. The owner, Scott, has an electricity about him that was also great to see. Everyone felt so at home there that we were sad to leave our New Orleans compound.

History of property.: Experience all of wonderful New Orleans while staying in one of the oldest Creole Cottages in the city. This home was built circa. 1808 and has some of the finest examples of architecture and details fashionable in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. You will be staying one short block from the French Quarter and one block from Bourbon Street. Our cottage is luxuriously furnished and elegantly decorated, having antiques from the mid to late 1800’s. THE HISTORY OF THIS AMAZING HOME This elegantly decorated Creole Cottage built, “of columbage and bricked between post” circa. 1808, is one of the rarest examples of early Creole cottage architecture remaining to date. This home is in the first subdivision of New Orleans named Faubourg Marigny. The plantation was subdivided in March 16 1806. This home retains almost all of its original architectural features including; its rare Ram’s horn hinges and original latches on the French glass doors. More history of property.: There are also very outstanding long latches which were used to open and close the doors. The ceilings are original and are “dressed and beaded” which are rare to find intact to day. The mantels are the most distinguishing interior elements in Creole domestic architecture. Two of the mantels are box mantels in the style dating from the late 1700’s to 1810 with columns supporting a frieze having strong horizontal moldings. The floors are beautiful large plank and the original moldings are intact. This property was sold to one of the first women of color to purchase property in the United States. Madame Magdalene Baure’ purchased three lots which now form the sites of 1426 and 1434 Burgundy and of 928, 930 and 934 Kerlerec. This property now has 4 other cottages, two of which were believed to be very early barge board cottages from the early 1800’s most likely moved here at a later date.
