The decor strives to be a cozy, funky version of classic New Orleans, with kitsch alongside original art, elegance alongside a feeling of homey comfort. We want the house to be clean and pleasant, but without a sense that guests should be afraid to touch anything.

We strive to be pet-friendly, though we ask that you inquire before booking if you are planning to bring pets.

We ask that guests watch noise levels outside of the home after 11pm too for the sake of our neighbors. This is especially important in the back patio/balcony area, which is close to neighbor's bedrooms.

Mid City is the heart of the city! Hop on the streetcar and enjoy a short, quaint ride (for $1.25) to the French Quarter anytime, day or night. As well as the Quarter, Mid-City is a good spot to access the rest of New Orleans' memorable neighborhoods such as Uptown, Treme, and the Lakefront.

Or enjoy all that Mid City has to offer. We are within ONE MILE of:
More than 50(!) locally owned restaurants, including Parkway Bakery and Tavern (probably the world's best po'boy shop)
More than 15 bars (including three music venues)
Five coffee shops
Three grocery stores and two specialty markets
One very large beautiful park (City Park, which is larger than New York's Central Park!)
One art museum (The New Orleans Museum of Art)
One sculpture garden (Sydney and Walda Besthoff Garden at New Orleans Museum of Art- it's beautiful and free!)
One bayou (Bayou St John, the only one in town)
One famous beignet stand (Cafe du Monde in City Park, open 6 AM-midnight)
One famous Italian bakery and gelato shop (Angelo Brocato's - and they bake everything in a little house next to ours, it can smell great!)
One beloved sno-ball stand (Pandora's)
One accessible swimming pool (The Drifter Hotel)
One Hurricane Katrina Memorial
Kayak and paddle boat rentals (On the Bayou and in City Park)
Great examples of New Orleans' famous above-ground cemeteries

Y'all are going to love it!

Hi all! We're Lindsay and Adam. Lindsay is a born and raised (seventh generation!) New Orleanian who started The Okra Inn in 2014. Formerly she co-owned a wetlands educational tour company called Louisiana Lost Lands Tours--which takes guests into the wetlands on kayaks and motor boats to teach them about coastal erosion and show them the beauty of the coast. Now, in addition to running The Okra Inn, she is very active in the City and its surrounding areas. Adam moved to town in 2014 from Iowa because he loves the city. Adam's resume is one of the most interesting around. He is a former high school English teacher, over the road truck driver, union organizer, and relay assistant for the deaf. He enjoys reading, playing too many hours of computer games, watching sports and cooking very delicious food. Lindsay and Adam met in The Okra Inn's kitchen during a party for The Endymion Parade (the large Mardi Gras parade in town, and the parade that goes right by the Inn). They got engaged under the Eiffel Tower in the summer of 2017 during a trip through Europe. They held their wedding during that same Endymion Party where they met during Mardi Gras 2018. The Okra Inn isn't your average listing. It's a cozy lodge, providing a great spot for travelers to rest after exploring our amazing City. We also work with local artists to have their art on display to increase their exposure. And The Okra Inn is a work in progress- trying to figure out the logistics of becoming a greater resource to the community. Thanks for looking us up. If you'd like more information, shoot a message. We look forward to having you! Lindsay & Adam
