From Kathleen: Better than advertised - comfortable, roomy enough for two couples and the grounds add another dimension. The location is ideal, close to the French Quarter, Frenchman Street, the Marigny, City Park and The Art Museum yet removed just enough so that you can relax and catch your breath in peace and quiet. You don't have to leave the neighborhood. James' guide offers interesting tips. Rhoda was professional and helpful. We highly recommend The Cottage for your New Orleans stay.
