As regular guests in the bed and breakfast at Degas House, we have been delighted to make this our New Orleans home away from home. We travel there regularly on both business and pleasure, and we've watched it grow over the years to become the museum home it has aspired to be, besides being a very warm and accommodating bed and breakfast. The staff often greets us a with a free bottle of champagne and chocolate as a welcome back gift, which sets the tone for our entire stay. The staff always adds a personal touch. Sharon looks after our every need and even calls us for breakfast if we oversleep, because she knows we would never miss her cooking!
The tour of the house is given by Degas' niece, who is usually around during breakfast and always has a tidbit of family history for our enjoyment and amusement. Degas House is a true gem and the staff make it fun and memorable on every occasion.
