The excitement starts the minute you step off the plane and experience New Orleans. It’s impossible not to be seduced by the city…the oak-shaded boulevards, the elegant mansions, the undulating Mississippi River.
It’s a quick and easy taxi ride to our home for this revolutionary event, an incredible historic home in the heart of the city. This unique mansion, built around the turn of the 20th century, was once the Mexican Consulate.
Now it’s our own remarkable retreat house, where every funky bedroom is decorated in an authentic New Orleans style and has an en-suite bathroom. Private rooms, shared rooms, and a few gorgeous suites (single occupancy) are available, all on a first-served basis.
The comfortable beds and vintage bathtubs are enticing, but it’s the beautiful common living areas and landscaped backyard that really shine, offering a comfortable scene for coaching sessions and lounging.
Speaking of lounging, bring your bathing suit for plenty of soaking in the heated indoor private pool! (You read that right. Heated. Indoor. Private. Pool.) And let’s be clear: We don’t mean a small lap pool. We mean a 90-year-old full-length tiled pool enclosed by a skylight-studded blue dome, with a full horseshoe bar (sourced from the historic New Orleans Jackson Brewery).
So that’s the setting. Now what will we do? Short version: ALL THE AMAZING THINGS. (Ok, not literally all the amazing things, but a lot of them).
