This is the home my wife grew up in and then we ended up buying it in 2001. We held it as a yearly rental property but decided in 2011 to renovate it completely and use it as a second home and vacation rental. We went down to the studs and completely redid the interior with all new windows, plumbing, electrical, cabinets, 2 central AC units and refinished the antique wood floors. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The downstairs is set up with the kitchen, dining and living room serving as a great room with a double-sided fireplace. You'll love the large new deck overlooking the river. The house is situated on an acre with lots of trees, bamboo and azaleas. There are neighbors on each side but they are not that close to our house and the lush foliage and trees will make you feel very secluded. All the amenities of the North Shore are just minutes away or drive to New Orleans in about 45 minutes.

Excellent Stay

My family of 8 had the pleasure of staying at Magnolia Bluff. The "in town" Covington location was ideal. The home is warm and inviting...it is perfectly appointed with nice beds, linens,and towels. The kitchen is well equipped with enough dishes, pots, pans, coffee cups and wine glasses for our large group. The home is nicely updated---exactly as described in the listing...The owner was a pleasure to work with, always prompt to respond to my communication, and accommodating my every request. I hope to have the privilege of staying here again.

A Comfortable Stay

We stayed at Magnolia Bluff for my son's wedding. The directions to the house let us find it quickly and easily though it is a little complicated the first time in the dark. The locks worked as described so we had easy access on a very cold night. The heater had been turned on for us and we were most appreciative.

We had trouble getting the upstairs heater to work and a quick call to Ray solved the problem. The internet was easy to access and other information was easy to find in a resource binder left on the table.

The kitchen let us have coffee and a simple breakfast each morning and we were all comfortable in the many bedrooms.

The house was nicer and bigger than the pictures indicate and the view in the morning was so enjoyable. Since the weather was unusually cold and we were busy with wedding activities, we did not use the porch or deck but admired both from inside the house through the many windows and glass doors.

I had an email from Ray as soon as I cared about opening email with a nice note about when to expect my deposit. He even returned part of my charge because they had failed to prepare the extra beds for us. Well worth the expenditure. Thank you Ray.

Our family stayed at Magnolia Bluffs over the week-end of our son's wedding. This was an excellent choice for a places to stay, more so than staying in separate hotel rooms. We appreciated all the room the house had to offer. There were 10 in our group, with grandparents utilizing the two downstairs bedrooms. The bedrooms are very roomy and comfortable. Having a fully equipped kitchen was especially great as we came and went with various wedding activities. All around the house was perfect for our group and the owner was very accommodating and responsive to any questions or request.

Relaxing Golf Outing

Loved it. 5 of my buddies and I stayed here for a golf tournament at Money Hill (25 minutes away). Location is fantastic. Secluded but right in town. 45 minutes from MSY. Stores, restaurants, coffee shops are minutes away. Decor is high quality and comfortable. Plenty of TV's. Fantastic bathrooms, showers, beds. Modern kitchen. Porch is great too. It is right on the creek but access is a little cumbersome. Although you could tie up a canoe or small craft with no problem. Don't expect to enjoy the creek too much from the bank except for the views, which are great. We are already planning an annual trip.

We hosted our daughter's wedding in Covington and needed a place to call home for a few days. This beautiful home fit our every need, from hosting a dinner for the groom's family to having enough room for the bridesmaids to dress!! It allowed our family to have space for downtime during this hectic and "dream come true" event. Thank you so much!!
