Once you arrive, you will know this is a special place. Built at the turn of the century by the grandson of Peter Hammond, Jefferson Davis Hughes, the house was designed to accommodate his extensive family. Hughes' involvement in the lumber business allowed him to use the finest wood and utilize the talents of area craftsmen in building the house.
Upon your arrival at the Hughes House Bed and Breakfast, you will be shown to your room to settle while your hostess, Ms. Lee, will ready your beverage of choice, tea or wine, to be served Southern-style on the veranda. One look down the street and you will be reminded of the time when life was gentle and all neighbors knew each others' names.
A comfortable but elegant retreat, whether you are visiting family or friends, attending a business function, or just escaping from everyday life, can be found at this fine bed and breakfast. The Hammond bed and breakfast is located in the Adams-Lily historic neighborhood, which is adorned with beautiful trees, flowers, and shrubs. The neighborhood is a great place to walk, jog, or bicycle. Situated adjacent to historic downtown Hammond, the Hughes House Bed and Breakfast is near coffee shops, a public library, numerous fine restaurants, cafes, a spa, banks, nightclubs, the post office, a book store, and boutique shopping; all just a casual stroll away.
The Jefferson Davis Hughes House Bed and Breakfast is located in historic downtown Hammond, Louisiana, between two major cities, 43 miles from Baton Rouge and 39 miles from New Orleans.
