My daughter an interior design professional in Greenville, SC. I grew up in New Orleans and my husband in Lake Charles, LA. My husband sold his Internal Medicine practice in Hammond last year and now is working at the VA in Biloxi and Chief of the Primary Care Clinic. He is also a retired Lt Col from the Air National Guard. I am a retired CPA and more more recently, a retired home school mom. I manage 3 short term rental properties.

Brenda S. Jones purchased this chateau / country house in 1997

Why Brenda S. Jones chose Louisiana

This property located in a peaceful setting with camellias blooming from late September through late April, followed by the azaleas. 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 peaceful setting and says that pictures don't do justice to the place. I am a hands on owner/operator and try to do whatever I can to make your stay perfect. I have many repeat guests who have become like extended family to me.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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%.

Beautiful, spacious, clean, country home near everything in S. LA

  • 5 of 5

If you are needing a beautiful, spotlessly clean, spacious, modern country home near everything that the North Shore of New Orleans has to offer, this is it! And all at an affordable price. The home is nearly new, and is nestled in the trees on a small horse farm. The hosts, Brenda and Ray, will do everything to make your stay enjoyable. The shade trees and stone floors keep the home cool in the summer. Kitchen is extremely well stocked with dishes and cook ware. Our family used the home as a base for exploring the area, including Bayou tours, Alligator ranch, Animal Safari at the Wildlife Center, fishing, biking, and seeing all that New Orleans had to offer. NOLA airport is just 50 minutes.

The Guest House in Hammond, LA

  • 5 of 5

The Guest House in Hammond, LA is a treat no matter your reason for being in the area. I was transitioning a move to the Hammond area...I could not have found a better place to stay! The facilities are first class and Mrs. Jones is the best property manager! My husband and I had the best stay in Hammond, we enjoyed the 'rustic' feel of the horse farm with all the amenities of home. Thank you, Mrs. Jones and VRBO!

Great place!

Great place to stay and very comfortable. We loved our stay. If you bring your dogs, be on the look out for ticks. Other than that, I recommend this for others.

If you want peace and tranquility, this is it. The house is set in the woods with a view of the resident horses through the trees.

Most Beautiful Place Ever!

  • 5 of 5

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!
