Sweet is the operative word for this newly spiffed butter-yellow Creole cottage, from the laziness-inducing wicker porch chairs to the yummy-delish breakfast muffins to the four clean, airy rooms (and one kitchenette suite) custom-painted with pretty botanical patterns. But it’s genuine and unfussy, just like hospitable owner Nancy Gunn. She’s free with the what-to-do tips (it’s near the St. Claude Ave. clubs), but hides her Emmy Award (she's a former reality-TV and documentary producer) on kitchen shelves of pretty reclaimed wood.
