A Little Lagniappe
At Maison des Lunes, we're proud to be a queer-owned business, dedicated to creating a welcoming and inclusive space for all of our guests. Whether you're a witch, a queer traveler, or simply someone looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, we invite you to come and discover the magic of New Orleans with us. Book your stay today and join us in celebrating the beauty and diversity of our city and our community.
We also own a Witch Shop and artist Collective called Cottage Magick, located only a few blocks away on Decatur.
From the moment you step through our doors, you'll be transported to a world of spellbinding charm and old-world elegance. Our beautifully appointed rooms are designed to evoke the spirit and magick of our eclectic city.
At Maison des Lunes, we take inspiration from the gods and goddesses of various mythologies to create a truly magical experience for our guests. Our rooms are each modeled after a different deity, from the fierce and independent Lilith to the playful and mischievous Pan to the sensual and alluring Aphrodite. Each room is designed to transport you to a world of myth and legend, with rich colors, curious touches, and mystical accents that will leave you feeling enchanted and inspired.
Our location on Elysian Fields Avenue is no accident - this historic street shares the name of the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous in Greek mythology and religion. Also known as Elysium, it is said to be the place where the gods retire to live out their days in peace and tranquility. Here, you'll find a sense of magick that's unlike anywhere else in the city, with tree-lined streets, historic architecture, and a sense of timeless charm that will leave you feeling exuberant and inspired.
Our home was featured in a documentary called Tennessee William's South made in 1973, where in an interview Tennessee Willaim cites our home as inspiration for the historic balcony scene in "A Streetcar Named Desire." Because of this, we originally modeled and named our rooms in honor of this and have since altered our theme to something that feels much more authentic to us.
