Visiting? But not too close.

If you would like to visit us but would prefer not to stay with us, I have an option for you. Right across the street, our neighbors own a bed and breakfast. From the Sully Mansion website:

Come be our guests at Sully Mansion! You will find yourself in the heart of the historic New Orleans Garden District, surrounded by stately homes, grand oak trees, walled gardens and soft southern breezes. Just one block away from St. Charles Avenue and its famed streetcar, you will have easy access to all of New Orleans' attractions and enjoy the Southern hospitality of innkeepers who are happy to help you make the most of your stay in the Big Easy.

The historic mansion designed by Thomas Sully in 1890 has eight rooms, ranging from an intimate bedroom to large suites, all with king or queen-sized beds and private baths. In the entry foyer, light filters through stunning, pastel-color stained-glass windows that are original to the house. The inn has fourteen foot ceilings with original plaster medallions, wide pine plank flooring, a large wraparound porch, antiques and many special touches which embody the grace and charm of a bygone era yet with all the modern-day conveniences.

The Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast is the only licensed bed and breakfast in the New Orleans' Garden District. Surrounded by magnolias and live oaks, the neighborhood is filled with Greek revival mansions and nineteenth century villas. Our guest are just steps away by streetcar from the French Quarter, Central Business District, Loyola and Tulane Universities, Audubon Park, the shops and boutiques of Magazine Street, world-famous restaurants and music clubs. For Mardi Gras, guests are one block from the major parade route and the Jazz Fest venue is within easy reach. The Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast is the ideal location for that special vacation, business trip or a romantic getaway. Whether a frequent visitor or a first time traveler, come and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of New Orleans and be a part of this magical city's rebirth as our guest of the Sully Mansion.

Handy, huh? And, Nancy has offered to be a source of eggs if I need them for cooking.

You made Nancy sound like she was volunteering to be a surrogate mother.

I'm baffled. It's a bed and breakfast. Breakfast means eggs. Eggs for waffles, pancakes, fried, scrambled, boiled.
