Just across the courtyard is Sophie’s Enchanted Cottage, a cozy, free-standing building that once served as the mansion’s kitchen storehouse, also with airy ceilings and large windows to let in plenty of natural light. Whitewashed-brick walls and tastefully rustic decor make the Cottage as homey as it is handsome.
Like the Wieland Suite, this rare cottage rental in the French Quarter also has its own kitchenette, a gorgeous renovated bathroom, and sitting areas for when you need to get some work done or just want to chill out with a cold one.
Not to mention a private garden courtyard of its own, fountain included.
Both properties are part of the Lanaux Mansion on Esplanade Avenue but are accessed through a private gate off Chartres Street, less than a block from the epicenter of New Orleans jazz and blues (a.k.a. Frenchman Street) in the Faubourg Marigny.
