My husband and I have live in the main house on the property since 1994. The guest house was built later. We will become empty nesters this year and have decided to rent out our guest house for short term stays. I grew up in New Orleans and my husband in Lake Charles, LA. My son is a sophomore at Auburn University, majoring in Aerospace Engineering and my daughter is studying interior design and swims for Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. My husband practices Internal Medicine here in Hammond and I am a retired CPA and more more recently, a retired home school mom.

This property located in a peaceful setting with camelias blooming from late September through late April, followed by the azeleas. It would be an excellent place to stay while waiting for an Act of Sale to go through, on your way to an LSU Tiger football game, or as a temporary professor at SLU. We have taken in many surgery patients while they are recuperating. Everyone enjoys the peace setting and says that pictures don't do justice to the place.
This unit has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. It is also good for handicap guests with bars in the bathroom and wide doorways. The in-house laundry is also very convenient. If you have a pet, it may also be possible for us to accommodate them for an extra charge. The pantry will be stocked upon your arrival with you favorites for cost plus 10%.
I have no words. The photos as beautiful as they are don't do this home justice! It's so very quiet! Hammond is a pretty town as well, but for anyone who just wants somewhere beautiful to relax this does it and beyond. Wish I lived there!
We look forward to returning to wonderful home. Thanks for such a great stay!
We had an amazing time at this house, very beautiful and relaxing property, felt right at home!! Would definitely stay again, didn't want to leave :) Thank you for opening your home and property to help us enjoy our vacation so wonderfully!
If you are looking for a very private and tranquil place to stay in the Hammond area this is it. I Have already booked for next year!!
Wonderful property to rent short term or long termed By far the biggest and best vacation rental property we have booked.
We book the entire week to visit elderly father in Metairie LA. Close proximity to French Quarter, and other sight seeing trips without all the traffic of downtown New Orleans. Easy on and off from I-10 and I-12. We loved that it was gated and safe. After a hectic trip to the French Quarter Feast and all the traffic and parking we encountered we love coming back to the property to just calm down and relax. House has everything you need, beautifully decorated, with the horses and the grounds you just felt like you were on a vacation. Property owner is very responsive if you needed anything. I would give the owner and the rental home five stars. I would definitely book this property again. Its a small town community feel but within driving distance of the sight seeing tours and events.
The Guest House is located 10 minutes from Southeastern Louisiana University and downtown Hammond. The are various festivals held throughout the year in this area. It is also an easy drive to Baton Rouge, New Orleans and the North Shore. Global Wildlife, an animal park, is only a 15 minute drive.
