About Brenda S. Jones

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.

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.

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%.

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.

Beautiful property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The beds were comfy, plenty of pillows, the kitchen was stocked, the bathroom was modern, we found everything we needed, the property was absolutely gorgeous, and not too far from New Orleans. We did not know there would be another house or other people on the property until after we had already booked. We were never bothered by anyone and only breifly saw one other person on the property during the mornings and afternoons.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the month of February and you couldn't ask for a better location. The guest house was peaceful and quiet and great to come "home" to after a hectic day of Mardi Gras fun. Centrally located to enjoy New Orleans and you can get there the back way and not have to drive the causeway or enjoy the parades and great restaurants on the Northshore. Would love to come back next year.

Privacy and good location

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything a traveler needs. We spent a month to be near family and really only slept there but found it met all of our needs. Owners are accessible and helpful. We enjoyed seeing the horses each morning.
