Fodor's Review

This beautiful property was once home to French impressionist Edgar Degas. The 1852 mansion retains its original floor plan and colors, and the spacious second-floor rooms have chandeliers suspended from 14-foot ceilings. The owners are happy to give you a tour of the house, which has become a favorite local spot for weddings and private parties. Parlors on the first floor display reproductions of the artist's works. You can have an authentic Creole breakfast in the lush, private rear courtyard. Three rooms have whirlpool baths and balconies.
