The Canal Street Inn
Our 1912 home was built in the heart of Mid-City by Mrs. Magdalena Holzer, the wealthy widow of a sheet metal baron; Mrs. Holzer’s portrait hangs in the foyer. The house was described in tax records at the time as “a single-story frame house” but was actually a raised, center hall bungalow featuring a mixture of architectural styles ranging from classical revival, to Victorian rococo, to craftsman style.
During 2001, this New Orleans mansion went through major restorations and became a beautiful bed and breakfast.
The house is surrounded by gardens on all sides. The ancient live oak trees literally embrace the house, their branches swooping almost to the ground. The lush tropical foliage is interspersed with bright colorful flowers of each season. The sunken patio is the perfect place to enjoy a good book and a glass of wine as you watch street cars lazily amble up and down Canal Street.
