About the owner: My husband and I have live in the main house on the property since 1994. The guest house was built a couple of years later. We have two children. My son is an aerospace engineer at Tinker AFB in OKC. 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.
Why the Owner Chose Hammond, LA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
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%.
