About the property

House attached to Bakery, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Short Term License rental #17STR-04467

Attached to the Breads on Oak bakery ( is this beautiful (1800sf.) 100 year old house with 3 bedroom and 2 baths, plus a pull out loveseat, sleeping 6. The house includes a full kitchen stocked with all appliances except for a full oven; instead we have a toaster/oven broiler. (Also see our "Bakery Studio for 1 to 2 guests, VRBO #691222. which can be added to the house at a discounted rate for up to 8 guests). The bakery is open Wednesday thru Sunday for organic artisan breads, coffees, sandwiches, soups, salads & vegan pastries! Bakery House is located on New Orleans' famous & fun (yet non-touristy) Oak Street, full of restaurants, music clubs, antique stores and clothing shops. And we're only six blocks from the streetcar line for easy access to the Historic French Quarter, Garden District, Universities, Audubon Zoo and Park, Convention Center and Superdome, and just 1 block from the paved river levee path for miles of walking, running or biking.

Although on Oak Street, the house is tucked away and pretty quiet except for the occasional train whistle which adds to the charm. Bakery House has just been renovated and is fully furnished and decorated with a cool collection of vintage and modern furniture and art.

Amenities include free WiFi and Cox cable with a large screen tv, covered parking for one car (additional covered parking for a 2nd car is $15/day) plus easy street parking as well. The first floor bedroom has a king size bed with a tv next to a private bath. Upstairs there are two adjoining rooms, one with two twin beds which can join to form a king and another room with a full size bed and a precious little nook where kids love to sleep. The shared second bath is off the room with the full bed (note: twin room guests must pass through full size bedroom to get to upstairs bath). All beds and linens have super comfy 100% cotton linens--with mostly organic cotton--and we use no chemicals in our cleaning products.

We provide a plate of our bakery's pastries for your stay. Also available are coffee, tea, and other goodies to make your stay special and enjoyable. You have a private patio, too!

The best part of staying at Bakery House is that you'll be able to wake up to the smell of fresh baked breads from our artisan bakery, Breads on Oak (bakery is open Wednesday through Sunday)!

About Chamain O'Mahony

Sean & Chamain bought the building & house in December of 2011 to create a bakery for artisan breads with an attached guesthouse. Sean has been a financial systems consultant, traveling the country to universities and Fortune 100 businesses, but would rather bake bread. Chamain is an artist (paints the Creole Cat) and principal with The BOS Group, a business consulting firm, who loves healthy baking and eating vegan muffins & sweets.

Chamain was born and raised in New Orleans, graduating from Tulane in chemistry with an MBA from Emory. While in Atlanta, Chamain met Sean in an Italian Restaurant where they both worked. They married and later moved home to New Orleans while Sean received his MBA from Tulane. That was almost 20 years ago. Sean & Chamain have been married 25 years and have 2 precious Siamese cats & 2 rescue kitties at their primary home. They love traveling abroad and discovering healthy, new & exotic foods. They both enjoy exercising--Sean likes running and Chamain prefers yoga--but both loves walking on the levee right outside of Bakery House!

Chamain O'Mahony purchased this house in 2011

Why Chamain O'Mahony chose Carrollton

The bakery & guesthouse are 5 minutes from the O'Mahony home, which is right between the airport and the French Quarter--and only a block from the river for biking, running or walking the levee. Oak Street, is the coolest neighborhood in NOLA, too!

What makes this house unique

We love walking Oak Street, with all the fun antique shops, restaurants, coffeehouses, consignment shops and the streetcar line. And the river, where you can walk, bike or run the levee (no cars allowed), is only a block away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To Chamain

The Quinns came to the town of New Orleans

To see the many famous sites and scenes.

We sojourned at a place called Breads on Oak

We thought it really must have been a joke

For back in Canada we never saw

Bread growing on a tree—it’s against the law.

We rode a boat way deep into a swamp

Where gators, turtles, snakes are known to romp.

And toured the Quarter on a cart and horse

For Bourbon Street we had to see of course.

A city tour by bus was very good.

By morning’s end we surely understood

The ups and downs of NOLA’s quite a range

We saw the god, the ugly and the strange.

We maneuvered Grandma’s wheelchair all around

Where narrow streets and traffic do abound.

And grandson Levi most enjoyed the zoo

Along with all the many school kids, too.

The City Park is something to enjoy

We spent a lovely morning there, oh boy.

The sculptures are amazing I must say

Though some of them are quite a bit risqué.

The City is a place of big parades

Where people celebrate for days and days.

And beads are given tourists by the ton

And thousands hand in trees when all is done.

So many thanks we offer you Chamain.

We hope someday to visit you again

And taste again the goodies that you bake

If journey back to NOLA we can make.

Spacious property. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a very comfortable 6 night stay. The layout of the house is such that our two distinct parties could share the common areas yet have enough private space so as not to intrude upon each other.

The neighborhood is safe and walkable. We loved the eclectic restaurants, bars and friendly locals.

We found the attached private garage very convenient when on-street parking might otherwise prove challenging.

The beds were extremely comfortable and the house is loaded with every conceivable amenity that you can imagine. And don't forget to stop in at the bakery! It is filled with amazing yummies!

Book with confidence. The hosts are instantly attentive to any question or need you may have.

We had a N'awlins Good Time! Thanks

A true NOLA experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a great place to stay outside of the French Quarter, and this bakery guest house was the perfect fit. A short Uber or cab ride from this charming guest house will take you into all of the action of the Quarter, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars right within walking distance as well. We woke up to the smell of delicious bakery goods each morning, and were treated to a platter of amazing pastries when we arrived. Then, to our delight, we had a bag of heavenly breads delivered to our doorstep on our last day in town. The guest house is a pure New Orleans charmer, and was the perfect size for our party of 4. The owners were very responsive when we contacted them. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay, and would definitely recommend the Breads On Oak Guest House to anyone that wants a great experience in The Big Easy!

Attentive hosts with delicious food right next door. Pretty nice first thing in the morning to have cinnamon rolls a few steps away. Comfortable beds and plenty of relaxing space. Excellent restaurants within short walking distance.

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came down for new years with a couple of friends and this was a great way to save on housing so we could have more fun in this great city. We all had plenty of space, the house itself was clean and well stocked, and the beds were cozy. The bakery' s resident cats were a lovely surprise. The bakery itself is fantastic and there's a lot to explore just down oak st. There are trolleys and buses nearby to get around the rest of the city. We all had a really wonderful trip and hope to come back soon!

It took a day to warm it up in the unusual arctic temps, but it was very warm upstairs and we slept cozy.
