About Us

Arrive in historic New Orleans style. Surround yourself with seductive architectural detail and lush greenery. Relax into our leisurely pace.

Completely restored to its original beauty with careful attention to its Greek Revival style and detail, the McKendrick-Breaux House is a quiet retreat located in New Orleans’ historic Lower Garden District. Built in 1865 by Daniel McKendrick, a wealthy plumber and Scottish immigrant, it was a three-story masonry home on land originally part of the Sarpy Plantation. Rescued and restored by local preservationist Eddie Breaux, it is now an elegant gem that has been operating for ten years in an area recently named “the hippest neighborhood in North America” by Utne Reader Magazine.

The McKendrick-Breaux House features large and airy antique-furnished guest rooms and double parlors decorated with works by local artists. Galleries overlook the courtyard filled with tropical plants. And spacious private baths and boudoirs feature 19th century claw-foot tubs. Fresh flowers at your bedside, complimentary continental breakfasts and all the modern creature comforts are just a few of the special touches that will delight you. Please read more about our amenities.

To make your stay truly unforgettable, you’ll want to rely on our knowledgeable owner and experienced staff for “insider” information and advice on experiencing that unique local New Orleans flavor. Please read more about how our staff can assist you.

It’s no wonder so many of guests come back again and again.
