Melrose Mansion

You had me at your beauty.

That's what came to mind when I discovered this treasure.

Our anniversary was fast approaching and it was my year to pick a place.

If I didn't decide soon, he was going to pick a place for us.

I knew I had better research and research fast or spend our anniversary week at a smelly fishing camp.

Not that there is anything wrong with fishing,
 I would just like to not  have to put my shoes on every 
time I needed to use the rest room.

You know what I'm saying ladies lol

I wanted somewhere close. (like within an hour)

That's when I landed on this beauty.

Below is the photo that won over my little southern heart.

It was close enough, cozy enough and my goodness...

Pretty enough!

This beauty sits on the edge of the French Quarter.

Esplanade Avenue to be exact.

It's just close enough to walk to the French Market, visit Jackson Square and grab a beignet at Cafe' du Monde

Yet far enough away from the hustle for a peaceful stay.

Win Win

Upon our arrival, we were given a gate key that lead us to this beautiful courtyard

Our car remained parked next to this beauty below our entire stay.

It is not part of the house but I do believe it has some connection with the owners.

It felt safe.  

And that's worth a lot when you're not familiar with the area.

Just past this courtyard parking there is another small path lined with gas lanterns leading up to this view below.

And just like that...I fell in love

Did I mention that the weather here has been a beautiful 70 degrees.


From the pool entrance, you walk directly into the main parlor below.

The sun in this all white room was almost too much to take in.

I now want to rush home and paint every inch of our home white.

Their dark stained wooden floors work so well with the stark white walls.

Most of our stay, I walked around with my head tilted looking for treasures such as these below.

Every room was just a beautiful as the one before.

The second floor holds another three rooms I believe and the third floor is a workout room.

The views up there are breath taking.

If I'm guessing right, I believe all of the ceiling must be at least 12 foot high.

And the detail in every nook was just as stunning.

Did I mention the bathrooms?

Each room has a unique bath.

Some have huge showers and some have jetted tubs.

I opted for the jetted tub :)

This was our room below.

Very spacious.

And the huge bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.

I believe we had 9 pillows between us and a few extra in the linen closet.

As the sun starts to fade, the house just glows...

If you enter from the front of the house, you are given a gate key to the poolside garden.

This is where we entered after hours.

And yes, almost every porch you pass has a blue painted ceiling.

The home has a bit of a Victorian Gothic style.

It was designed by a noted architect by the name of James Freret.

The home was built in 1884 for the Lanaux family.

Could you imagine growing up here?

Horse and buggies on brick covered paths.

After just a few short days, I felt at home here and didn't want to leave.

I'm sure you can see why...

And that third floor view from the workout room...

Here it is below.

We didn't partake in any workouts,
 other than walking up two flights of stairs to bid the city goodnight lol..

Here is another side view of the home.

And just across the street is a little bar/cafe that has the best onion rings you will ever eat!

During our stay, we did a lot of eating
 but don't worry because we walked it all off.

And we did a lot of this too...

It was so peaceful and tranquil I'm afraid to share with too many..

But because we are such good friends and I know y'all can keep a secret.

I'm sharing this jewel.

If you would like to learn more about this beautiful home and how to visit, I'm sharing a link to their website below.

I was not paid nor compensated for this post.

 I just loved it so much and  I wanted to share with all of you.

If you happen to visit, tell them Susie said HI!

And hopefully,
 I'm on a roll with posting again and will share a little about this eclectic city called

New Orleans.

  16. Compared to many other watches out there Panerai watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. Replica Panerai watches smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap.My personal favorite line in the Replica Panerai Watches collection is the Santos. The Replica Panerai Watches100 XL is their larger version of the watch, the standard model is a bit small for my tastes.In a route one way, this influence makes a lot of sense - the purpose of both sets of images is to create striking pictures that put Valentino handbags in the centre.
