About this listing
We have lived in our beautiful Creole cottage since 1996. It's full of character and historic charm, it truly represents old New Orleans architecture and style. Step back in time but with all the conveniences of today.
Come and enjoy your stay at our 1830's Creole cottage, Montegut Manor, located just down the river from the French Quarter in the historic, trendy Bywater. The French Quarter is a mere mile away, a quick cab or bike ride or a 15 minute walk. If you want to just stay and enjoy the neighborhood we are a just a walk away from such great restaurants as Maurepas Foods, Jim's, Suis Generis, and Elizabeth's and just a mile from some cool bars like Bj's and Vaughan's Lounge and even closer to Mimi's and Love Lost Lounge.
Our upper floor apartment has a private entrance and plenty of on-street parking. The apartment sleeps 4-- 1 bedroom with a real double bed and a den with a fold open double bed couch.
The bedroom is off of the large, open kitchen/living area. This place is not "shotgun style" so everyone has their privacy. High ceilings, lots of windows, a small balcony, French doors, a claw foot tub, new kitchen completely furnished for cooking with halogen stove tops, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.
All with a complimentary bottle of wine to celebrate your stay in New Orleans...
My sister and I reside downstairs. We are native New Orleanians who have lived in this house since 1996 so we know the neighborhood as well as the city. We have a mask studio downstairs, New Orleans Masks, so check out our web page: (website hidden)

Our neighborhood, the Bywater, is one of the most popular areas of New Orleans. Located on the bend of the Mississippi River, this funky part of town is convenient to all the happenings downtown, Frenchmen Street, the French Quarter, most music festivals, as well as, a growing hip culture of trendy restaurants, shops and bars.
On street parking is available for those who drive/rent a car. There are public buses just a block away and we are walking/biking distance to most downtown locations. We are about one mile to the French Quarter.
