Walking through the doors of this New Orleans bed and breakfast is like strolling into a bygone era. The property straddles the historic French Quarter and Marigny neighborhoods, famed for the legendary art and music created there since the 1800s. Though renovations have spruced up the place, antique furniture, books and Civil War memorabilia from the original owner remain. Its historic architecture made it the perfect setting for Brad Pitt’s 2007 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and guests can take in the southern charm with stays in the mansion's four bedrooms, outfitted with queen-sized beds, private baths and cast-iron balconies.
