  • First go to the ticket booth to pay for admission and join the docent-led tour. I enjoyed the tour inside the house. The gardens were pretty impressive too (vegetable, wild, etc)
  • Plenty of parking available. Lots of great things to discover. Some of the fountains are cast from lead, look in Pan's garden outside dining room.
  • Excellent tour, history, and beautiful museum... so grateful to learn about the philanthropic accomplishments of the family who lived there... will give you chills.
  • What an incredible house and gardens! If you want to see an original example of residential art deco decor, be sure to visit. Pay close attention to the master bedroom's dressing rooms (yes, there are two), the stenciling on the bedroom walls, and the relief-printed wallpaper on the second floor. The only downside is that no photographs are allowed in the house, so make sure to commit all of the beautiful features to memory.
  • Very lovely home....with so many special touches unseen in any other homes.....I look forward to touring it again.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
