The Bywater Cottages are historic landmarks built directly after the Civil War ranging from 1868 through 1892. The estate’s private guest house with two bedrooms and one bathroom comfortably sleeps four adults and is a traditional train car-style shotgun residence. The Guest house was built in 1892, on the original H.H. Slawson Plantation’s blacksmith shop grounds. This Victorian home boasts high ceilings and a magnificent Cajun Bayou-styled Porch ideal for cool starry nights and a quintessential New Orleans romance.
This Southern cottage includes all the modern comforts with updated furnishings and amenities. Walk to the local Bywater venues or to the Faubourg Marigny or French Quarter. After a day of touring the city or walking the riverfront return to your guest home to allow yourself a shaded retreat in the courtyard or pavilion. In the evenings enjoy the gardens while cicadas and tree frogs lull you into the New Orleans state of mind!
Bywaters, New Orleans | 4 Bedrooms
The mystique of New Orleans can be felt in the third oldest section of the city, known as the Bywater, for its juxtaposition along the riverfront. Our neighborhood serviced the wharves until the 1990s. The Bywater Cottages are on the river road facing the muddy Mississippi and were built between 1867 and 1892. This historically landmarked property showcases quintessential Louisiana architecture and includes all the modern comforts of home. We invite you to retreat to the shaded porch or gardens each night, where cicadas lull you into a New Orleans state of mind.
Michael was a great host and shared his extensive knowledge of local history. The property was secure and clean and absolutely adorable on top of it all!
We absolutely loved this property. It was in the perfect location, the house was unique and comfortable, & the host was helpful and accommodating.
This cottage was just lovely. It's a beautiful mix of southern charm with modern touches. We enjoyed it very much.
We had a great stay at Michael's spot for a long weekend in New Orleans! The place was very clean & comfy, has a ton of character and we really enjoyed spending time in the fun outdoor space. Michael was also super helpful - he gave us great recommendations, told us all about his spot's really cool history and was very accommodating with our check-in / check-out. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back.
