The Terrell house is everything I ever pictures of old world charm in New Orleans. Massive wooden doors welcome you in to a warmly decorated hallway skirted by the sitting room and main dining room. They have decorated this home wonderfully. We stayed in the main house and never visited the other rooms so we can't say much about them but we did really enjoy our room. We were on the top floor, in one of the smaller rooms but it still felt cozy. The sheets were impossibly soft and it was nice to have our own air conditioning unit to customize. I were able to tour around the other rooms in the main house and loved how grand they were. The Gold Suite and King Suite were particularly fantastic. I loved how the house and it's extensions bordered an adorable little courtyard with a lovely fountain. We spent several warm afternoons resting in the shade while we enjoyed some complimentary beverages. I used the Terrell house for my mother in laws 60th birthday celebration and it managed to house the whole family and treat us all like kings. They even organized a dessert social night on the Friday that we all arrived. They made my mother in laws favorite dessert and also a few "New Orleans" desserts that were absolutely fantastic.
The breakfasts were delicious as well and very abundant. You'll never want for food or drink at the Terrell house.
If I ever go back to NOLA, I'll be staying here again. It was fantastic!
