New Orleans, Louisiana
Welcome! The Okra Inn is a renovated Camelback cottage in historic Mid City area on the Canal Street Car line. Each side rents as private three bedrooms suites or the full six bedrooms can be available. Enjoy a 10 minute walk to Bayou St John and City Park (home of New Orleans Museum of Art), and a 15 minute street car ride to the Historic New Orleans French Quarter. Around the corner from the famous Angelo Brocato’s and many other restaurant options. Blocks away from many other famous New Orleans restaurants, such as Mandina’s, Liuzza’s, and Katie’s. I also have tons of insider knowledge on exploring the City!

We stayed here with a group that was attending a wedding. We found the Okra Inn to be very comfortable with enough space to easily accommodate our large group. The house was well stocked with linens and even toiletries! We found it very easy to get to the trolley so that we didn't have to worry about parking our vehicle...

Loved staying here. Classic New Orleans shotgun house with backyard space for a dinner outside. Quiet rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms. Great location- Midcity and Bayou St John neighborhoods. Walkable to cafes, restaurants, the streetcar, City Park, Esplanade Ave, Bayou St John, the Lafitte Greenway, etc. Lindsay and Adam were great hosts and knowledgeable about the city- would definitely recommend!

Great location. Nice comfortable accommodations. Our group of 10 rented both sides. One side does not have a television. We ended up buying a television so that the people staying on that side had something to watch during our downtime when we wanted to just relax
