Anticipated Questions

Q: What will the sleeping arrangements be?

A: The Fleur de Lis Mansion has 11 unique bedrooms and bathrooms. All bedrooms have 1 queen sized bed. As this is a sleepover style retreat, there are two options for sleeping arrangements. Attendees can either have a room to themselves or share a bed with a new friend, for a discounted price.

Q: Won't it be weird sharing a bed with a stranger?

A: Well, we won't be strangers by the time we meet for the retreat! When you register for the retreat, you will be invited to at least three virtual socials that will help everyone get to know each other. The purpose of QBGSR is to create a lasting bond between quirky women from all different walks of life. By the time we finally get to the retreat, we will hopefully be closer to sisters than strangers. If you are still uncomfortable, but want to take advantage of the discounted price, encourage a friend that you don't mind sharing space with to register and we will link your applications!

Q: Will I be able to doing any sightseeing or tourist activities during the retreat?

A: Heck yeah! New Orleans is way to awesome to not be explored. While we do have an itinerary planned for the retreat, there is a lot of scheduled free time that will allow you to explore the city with your new friends or solo (introverts, unite...separately of course!)

Q: What should I do about transportation?

A: We will have a large vehicle that will be used for any of our group outings. For any personal travel while in New Orleans, we recommend a car service company such as Lyft, Uber or taxi. If you prefer to drive, the property has free parking.
