Fodor's Review

Art buffs will love that this was once home to French impressionist Edgar Degas; plus, the 1852 mansion retains its original floor plan and colors, and the spacious second-floor rooms have chandeliers that hang 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.
