Brenda S. Jones purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1997
Why Brenda S. Jones chose Hammond
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.

Weekend family vaca
First of all, thank you Brenda for your warm hospitality! Your guest house is beautiful. The grounds are breathtaking and made for a wonderful stay this weekend. My children loved seeing and feeding the horses. It was nice that we had somewhere to walk around outside and enjoy nature, as we are an outdoors family.
As for the house, though it is only 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, it is VERY spacious! The house was more than equipped for my family of 5 (plus our dog). The house was well stocked and super comfy! The screened in back porch Made for a great place to sit and have coffee on. We will be back for many years to come!
Quiet and secluded
We loved this property! The house accommodations were perfect for us. We will definitely stay again when coming to the area.
Excellent home in perfect setting!
We had a great experience! We were minutes from my daughter's school so we could go watch her games. An added bonus was being able to feed the horses each day! We will definitely return.
A nice quiet place to spend a few days
Very peaceful place to stay. Brenda Jones was so nice to us, we felt like we had known her for years. Property was back in the woods with we loved as well as getting to feed the horses. Very clean, everything you would every need was available. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We highly recommend staying at this location and we will certainly be back.
Awesome property and owners!!
This was my second time to stay at The Guest house in Hammond. Words can’t describe the experience. Secluded private beautiful tranquil property in close proximity to everything Southern Louisiana has to offer. Great owners provide over and above the necessities one would expect. I will definitely return anytime I’m in Southern Louisiana!!!
Beautiful property in a great location.
This cozy guest house had all the comforts of home. Everything we needed to cook an array of meals was right there in the kitchen. We loved the horses.
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. Neighboring Ponchatoula (our sister city) is know for it's strawberries in Spring and their antiques year-round.
