We love 4-legged friends, but due to the nature of the gardens and the work it takes to keep it maintained, we cannot allow pets. We will make sure this information is online. Thank you for considering Longue Vue, and if you are still in town City Park and Pontiff Dog Park are great green spaces to explore and enjoy... More

A friend who lives in New Orleans said I should visit this house. It is really special, though in many ways I am not a "house" person. Built in the 1940s by a wealthy family, it represents an affluent, tasteful lifestyle, with extremely thoughtful design and quality construction and original furnishings throughout. (The one room in which the furniture was... More

My wife and I love looking at homes. This one did not disappoint. We loved the details of this home and the information provided by our tour guide. The gardens were beautiful.

We made a last minute decision to visit this place. It is beautiful! Carries the speak-easy charm. Very interesting due to it architecture and the era it was built and what it was used for. The house itself is interesting, the interior designs, basement and layout keep your attention throughout the whole tour.

Very cool, had a great tour of the house and part of the garden . But they were filming CSI episode at the time, so they gave us a future pass.

We thoroughly enjoyed touring Longue Vue recently. The house and gardens are lovely, and Wilma was an excellent tour guide. If you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, I'd highly recommend you include this on your list of New Orleans activities.

The more we travel, the more we appreciate the beautiful antebellum plantation houses and mansions and estates and gardens of the historically rich and famous. But then we saw Longue Vue House and Gardens in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is breathtakingly beautiful...the house, the antique collections, the landscaped gardens, the fountains, the ponds, the flowers, the golf course. Located on... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
