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.
