Dauphine House, a B&B near the French Quarter
Consider Dauphine House your home away from home as you explore the historic French Quarter, Marigny and Treme neighborhoods. Only 2 blocks to Bourbon Street and Frenchmen Street, and 3 blocks to eclectic St. Claude Avenue. Enjoy the French Quarter’s antique stores, art galleries, street musicians and ornate balconies lush with flowers and ferns. Cruise the mighty Mississippi on an authentic steamboat, tour beautiful antebellum mansions, discover a restaurant that tantalizes your taste buds. Step back in time and ride a carriage through this enchanting and mysterious city that has survived and thrived for three centuries.
Also within walking distance are 2 major streetcars: the Riverfront and the St. Claude/Rampart lines. These two lines easily connect to the Canal streetcar, as well as the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, the line that clickety-clacks through the beautiful Garden District.
When you need to relax from sight-seeing, return to Dauphine House to take a siesta or chat with the other guests and your hostess, Karen Jeffries, on the patio. Karen lives on-site upstairs, and is happy to answer questions and make recommendations and reservations for restaurants, attractions, and exciting things to do in the city.
Whenever you decide to come to New Orleans, chances are you will be just in time for a festival complete with zydeco music and Cajun cuisine. We love festivals. We celebrate everything from alligators to strawberries! Besides Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest in the Spring, New Orleans hosts the Tennessee Williams Festival in March, the French Quarter Festival in April, Satchmo Fest in August, and Southern Decadence over Labor Day weekend, just to name a few.
