About

Degas House is the only home and studio of the French Impressionist Master, Edgar Degas, open to the public anywhere in the world. Conveniently located 11 blocks from the French Quarter, romantic intimacy and Creole elegance await you in the beautifully restored historic home. Michelin rated "MUST SEE" and "MUST STAY." The Creole breakfast served daily can not be missed - followed by a tour guided by Degas' great grand niece. Come and experience New Orleans from the same perspective as the artist himself!

Charming Historic B&B

4.6 on June 12, 2013

We reserved 3 of the lovely rooms at the Degas House, 2 of which had 2 bedrooms, (5 bedrooms total). Breakfast was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. We were a total of 9 adults in our family and the total room costs were under $900 per day. Beds were very comfortable.


Highly Reccomend Staying Here

It is like staying in a museum home complete with period furniture. The staff was friendly and the Manager attentive to detail.


Degas House

We found Degas House a perfect place for us to stay in New Orleans. There is easy access to the French Quarter and Esplanade Avenue is very beautiful. The breakfasts were very good and we were taken care of beautifully by the staff, particularly by the soft spoken and kind Caroline. Our room was wonderfully refreshed everyday. There is road construction going on on Esplanade but it didn't bother us. We also had dinner one night at the Degas House Restaurant and found it very pleasant.


Lovely relaxing stay

3.6 on March 16, 2013

Beautiful house with some interesting history. The tour is worth it though keep it for a rainy day activity as there is so much to do and see in NOLA. the location is great - off the beaten track and so a very quiet, peaceful respite from the madness downtown, and yet just a 15 minute walk to the action. Rent bikes and you can truly get around the whole city - French Quarter, City Park, Garden District, ...Wifi was a bit temperamental during our stay but the staff were lovely about it. Bed was a bit lumpy but it was so quiet we slept like babies.
