Why owner/property manager chose Covington

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Perfect for our family visit

  • 5 of 5
We got to stay at this beautiful location while visiting family in Hammond. The airline lost our pack-n-play, but Nancy and Ray had one in the house! It made what could have been a nightmare into a non issue. We loved cooking big breakfasts in the morning in the gorgeous kitchen and sipping coffee on the deck. We can't wait to come back for another visit!

fabulous woodsy retreat

  • 5 of 5
We loved the tranquil woodsy ambiance at Magnolia Bluff. The house was recently remodeled with beautiful granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths and gorgeous wood floors throughout the entire house. The house is incredibly spacious with very large bedrooms and living areas. We will definitely return!

My family stayed here for almost two months to spend the summer with relatives in the area. Perfect location to reach downtown Covington, Mandeville and Madisonville. Comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Owner easily reachable and accommodating. Kitchen well appointed for cooking and entertaining. Everything in excellent working order. Would highly recommend for families, family reunions or people wanting to spend some time in beautiful historic Covington.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
