French Quarter Small Weddings & Events

The historic Audubon Cottages date back to the late eighteenth century and offer a truly one-of-a-kind experience for small weddings or events.  Each Cottage surrounds a courtyard with what is said to the the oldest pool in New Orleans, which is also a heated, saltwater pool. Imagine the luxury and privacy of having the grounds of the Audubon Cottages dedicated to your event. 

Our wedding packages require the ceremony and reception to be held in a private cottage courtyard along with rental of a two-bedroom or adjoining one bedroom cottages for a minimum of two nights.
