Vacation Rental Description

You will be staying one short block from the French Quarter and one block from Bourbon Street.

THE HISTORY OF THIS AMAZING HOME

This elegantly decorated Creole Cottage built, "of columbage and bricked between post" circa. 1808, is one of the rarest examples of early Creole cottage architecture remaining to date. This home is in the first subdivision of New Orleans named Faubourg Marigny. The plantation was subdivided in March 16 1806. This home retains almost all of its original architectural features including; its rare Ram's horn hinges and original latches on the French glass doors. There are also very outstanding long latches which were used to open and close the doors. The ceilings are original and are "dressed and beaded" which are rare to find intact to day. The mantels are the most distinguishing interior elements in Creole domestic architecture. Two of the mantels are box mantels in the style dating from the late 1700's to 1810 with columns supporting a frieze having strong horizontal moldings. The floors are beautiful large plank and the original moldings are intact. This property was sold to one of the first women of color to purchase property in the United States. Madame Magdalene Baure' purchased three lots which now form the sites of 1426 and 1434 Burgundy and of 928, 930 and 934 Kerlerec. This property now has 4 other cottages, two of which were believed to be very early barge board cottages from the early 1800's most likely moved here at a later date. There is also a servant's quarter at the back which is possibly one of the early buildings on the property. The main house and other cottages all have the conveniences of the modern home. This property is now a very quaint and lovely Guest House (B&B). Experience the amazing architecture very few ever get to see in and elegantly decorated home constructed almost 200 years age.

Kerlerec House can be rented for groups of 1 to 20 guests. Our suites are wonderfully furnished with the original architecture and beamed ceilings and all the modern conveniences of home. The main house is rentable as one unit accommodating up to 8 guests. It can be added to if more space is needed to accommodate the number of guests in your group with the addition of our other suites or cottages.
