The Terrell House has been described by guests as "an oasis in the heart of historic New Orleans -- achieving a balance between elegance and comfort." Built in 1857 the Terrell House is a grand three story Italianate stucco-over-brick mansion. The main house features porches, galleries, and balconies framed in ornate cast iron and a brick New Orleans courtyard complete with several fountains and lush vegetation.
