Degas House Description

Distinguished by the French Ministry of Culture, Degas House is set apart from any other bed and breakfast. Degas House is wrapped in the charm of an oak tree lined New Orleans neighborhood. Visit, Celebrate and Stay at the only historic landmark in the world where Edgar Degas lived and painted as we recreate for you the experience of being welcomed as a guest of the Musson/Degas family. Degas created 18 works of art and wrote 5 moving letters while in New Orleans. Rated the #1 Lodging Value and #3 in Quality in New Orleans (after The Windsor Court Hotel and The Ritz Carleton) by The Unofficial Guide to New Orleans Post Katrina Edition, Degas House is now in its 19th year of business. A hot Creole Breakfast ($35 value) and a guided tour ($29 value) is included in your stay.
In 1880, it was proclaimed that the name Degas would never be heard in New Orleans again. It remained silenced for eighty-five years until the tales began to once again be told through Degas House walls. New Orleans is a city with many stories to tell. This is the ONE you will remember!
Degas House also serves as a venue for weddings, receptions and corporate events. We can house your guests!
Degas House has been named as "the best place to marry in Louisiana" by Frommers.
