It was like stepping into the distant past. The home has been restored with care and great style. Shannon, the cook, refused to run away with me, but who can blame her. The breakfasts alone are worth the stay. The entire staff was gracious and accommodating. We had our dog with us and he gives it 5 barks too. Staying away from the French Quarter started as a disappointment but soon developed into the best accident ever. There are lovely restaurants (whose chefs would also not run away with me!) There is a great park for dogs just a block away which is a relief to a boy who wants to play with other dogs. We actually made a run into the Quarter and ran back. The sense of quiet and grace in the Garden District is wonderful.
