My husband and I stayed at Maison de Macarty two nights, and wished we could have booked more. The neighborhood is sweet, a short walk from the Quarter, and residential, though there are restaurants and things to see there as well. (Beth's Used Bookstore, for example) Try Suis Generis (sp) for late-night food on your way in. Try the Shrimp Ceviche if it's on the menu that day. But I digress. Kurt has created a lovely ambiance, Victorian but comfortable. We stayed in Room 4 -- the bed was deluxe, had a private entrance through the courtyard and upstairs (I think all rooms may be UP stairs), overlooking banana palms and an outdoor swimming pool. The chef, Curtis, regaled us with amazing baked goods as well as delicious egg dishes. We were invited to enter through the kitchen and help ourselves, as long as we stayed out of Curtis's way. His peach/cherry upside down cake is to die for, and the french crepe (filled with boursin?) and spinach, mmmmm. So, we had a wonderful experience. The one and only caveat, which they warn about on the website, is that the walls are thin. So if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The neighborhood was quiet, at least until the kids went to recess at school across the street, (about 8:30 -- you don't want to sleep too late in New Orleans anyway!) but the man next door snored. Thank you Kurt & Dr. Warren for a great stay!
