About Toni Baumgartner, Hen 1

Hello, we are sisters Terri, Tamara (Susan), Tricia and Toni who were fondly given the title 'The 4 Hens' by our younger brothers Tim and Tom. We grew up in this house and purchased it with our Roosters (husbands Chuck, Randy & Jeremy) from our Dad John in 2009.

Toni Baumgartner, Hen 1 purchased this house in 1963

Why Toni Baumgartner, Hen 1 chose Southern

Our Great Grandmother owned this house and our parents purchased it in 1963. Our mother PollyMom loved this house and had many fond memories of the home as a child. The beautiful oak floors, wood pocket doors, maids stairway, sunny mornings in the front porch, art projects on the large table or piano music filling the home, we enjoyed it all.

What makes this house unique

Relax and enjoy the peacefulness of our home, comfy new beds, patchwork quilts, a soaking tub, flames in the fireplace and a large yard welcome you.

Lovely Home and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant at the 4 Hens! The owners were available and accommodating and the house location was great!

We had a family gathering in Olivia, and the layout and size of the house was great for a mixed families with plenty of space to relax and sleep.

There were a few little glitches, and the beds were a little squeaky, but the owners were immediately responsive, helpful, and accommodating! I could not have asked for more attentive customer service.

Looking forward to our next stay!

Thank you 4 Hens!

Great place for a group craft retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The crafting space is great, with comfortable office-type chairs and lots of light. There were four of us and it was really nice that we were each able to have our own bedroom.
