Operating and licensed since 1996, the Laurel is a beautiful 2-story 1924 home located in the heart of Mid-City. The New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Endymion Mardi Gras Parade are a 10-minute walk. The French Quarter is a 10-minute drive. We are a bed and breakfast licensed with the New Orleans Mayoralty Permit Registration Number 198945.

The space
The suite is beautifully decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques and fun furniture. The bedroom has an iron queen bed and a beautiful mahogany amoire. The sunroom has a fun décor of Asian teakwood hand-carved furniture. It also features a full-size innerspring pull out sleeper/sofa. The sunroom is flooded with natural sunlight streaming in through the tall windows on every wall.

Three cats, Ranger, Billy and Koshka reside at the Laurel.

The raised front porch and the front courtyard-style patio is wonderful and a great place to just sit and do nothing. The corner lot offers a beautiful view of the peaceful surroundings of the neighborhood.

Guests can enjoy City Park's Museum of Art, botanical gardens and new walking park.

Private entry directly into the guest suite is available.

Laura and Eliot are the fifth and current owners of this 1924 raised cottage-style house. They both have professional careers; Laura is an Engineer and Eliot is a staff photographer for the local newspaper, The Advocate. Ranger is the resident cat whose main job is to do nothing when he's not sleeping.

Come join us and enjoy the experience of being "At Home in New Orleans" with Laura and Eliot.

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

The neighborhood is family-oriented residential. It is quiet. It was developed in the mid-1920s. The architecture is beautiful. Although in the heart of a residential area, a variety of restaurants, coffee shops and wine bars are within walking distance.
