Abita’s Cardinal's Rest is one of the few remaining historic hotel cottages from the turn-of-the- century golden era of hotels and spas in Abita Springs. Once part of the New Abita Springs Hotel, it is now a cozy cottage on a quiet street just a short walk to all the best things Abita Springs has to offer.

The space
Cardinals Rest is a newly renovated half of a duplex with a private entrance. It has a living room with a dining or work area and a large comfortable couch. The bedroom has a queen bed, a roomy closet, and dresser; also a private bath includes a tub/shower. The rooms have wooden floors and high ceilings with ceiling fans and wooden blinds. Street parking in front of the cottage is available. Our own Abita Roasting coffee is provided, also tea with creamer and sugars. A microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster and TV with Roku are for your convenience. NOTE: The Abita Cafe is just down the street and offers 10% off to my guests.
Please - no parties or pets.

Welcome to Abita Springs! I moved here in 1974 along with a group of artists all seeking relief from city life. Abita Springs is my haven and feeds my artistic spirit. Cardinal's Rest has been my studio and one-time art gallery. Please join me and enjoy this perfect small town. If you can drag yourself away from this perfect place, New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast are only an hour away.
