This is a historically fascinating neighborhood on the Bayou St. John. Originally named Bayouk Choupic by the Native Americans settled here, nearly everything from voodoo ceremonies to coffee importing have taken place over the last 300 years. These days, the neighborhood is mixed with both businesses & homes, and everyone gets along well (and their dogs too).

Demographics include young professionals, generations-long NOLA families, weekend-visiting homeowners, earthy folks who appreciate green-living, & retirees.

The surrounding neighborhood around Bayou Guest House is active during the day, especially with the popular po'boy restaurant across the street, kayakers on the bayou, dog walking, and the young "Lafitte Corridor," a bike & jog pathway that connects us to the French Quarter!

In the evening, the area is nice & quiet.
