Gay owned New Orleans Bed & Breakfast

You might have heard people say that New Orleans is like San Francisco, Savannah, Charleston, Paris, or Marseilles. It's not. The biggest difference is that the streets are exploding with live music all year round. You've never seen such "street theater." Our most cherished visitors come for our food, music, architecture, history, artists, and writers. The ambiance is most like the French Caribbean.

We live in the old French area, much like my Creole ancestors did, coming from France and Spain in 1715 and 1793, respectively. My mother and father grew up speaking French just a few houses away from us. Our district, Faubourg Marigny, is a quieter version of the adjacent French Quarter-the main difference being that you can actually sleep at night here. It's the safe, artist/gay residential area with about 70 bed and breakfasts. The city attracts one million visitors each month, so accommodations fill up quickly.

Within a couple minutes walk of our front door, you have access to restaurants such as Marigny Brasserie, Belle Forche', Cafe Negril, Feelings, Santa Fe, Marisol, La Peniche, Mona's, Wasabi, Adolfo's, Santa Fe, and bars such as Spotted Cat, Cafe Brasil, d.b.a., Checkpoint Charlie's, Phoenix--not to mention an over abundance of galleries and antique shops. There's a Cuban grocery store right across the street. Jackson Square is a mere 20-minute stroll through the adjacent French Quarter.

Although, Marigny, in the opinion of many, has become the more bohemian extension of the French Quarter,

increasingly becoming the neighborhood of choice for writers, painters, musicians, street entertainers and artists of all sorts.

Throughout the old, French district, you will see artists painting on the streets, musicians "jamming"-- French doors of bars and restaurants flung open, beckoning you to enter. This is the real New Orleans. Our nearby Country Club offers a large pool (clothing optional), full bar, and lunch most of the year at a daily rate.

Ray and Kim love to host nice, relaxed people-- people who enjoy new surroundings and experiences-- people who can "go with the flow." We try to steer clear of the formal, pretentious crowd-- no "putting on airs" here. Please come stay with us if you think we're your kind of place.

La Dauphine is a very laid back guest house for the budget-minded traveler. No "Attitude". Located in the Bohemian, artsy part of town, four blocks from the French Quarter, and a mere 12 minute streetcar ride to the Convention Center. For your safety and serenity, no unregistered guests are allowed in the rooms. No cooking is allowed and there is no kitchen access. A mellow, village-like atmosphere prevails throughout the neighborhood.

The rooms feature queen-size, four poster beds, cable TV/VCR, phone, ceiling fans, central air and heat -- all this in a charming, yet unpretentious, renovated Victorian, 100-year-old house. Very relaxed and quiet and a continental breakfast is included. On street, unrestricted parking is readily available in front of the house. Hoshi -- an intelligent and friendly Japanese Shiba Inu dog also lives in the house. She is mellow also.

English, French, German and Danish spoken.

Rates are higher for events such as Mardi Gras, Halloween and Southern Decadence (Labor Day), etc. Contact us for special pricings. Each room has an assigned private bath down the hall. A three night minimum is required. No groups, no guests in rooms overnight, and no small children or pets, please. 12% hotel tax included.
