Location

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Hammond, LA, USA:
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.

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%.
