Awesome B&B! Great central location - you can walk to everything in Covington. Tom & Maureen were great host/hostess. The room was very clean. The house is quaint and very charming. We would recommend to any and all!

Very charming little B & B tucked into the old town of Covington, Louisiana. The Inn is well maintained w/ lots of warm & cozy touches. Lovely patio area w/ a fountain & flowers is great for a morning coffee & paper. Lots of in room amenities. Breakfast is only continental but better options are available in the immediate area.

Wonderful home in a lovely area of Covington. Our accommodations were very comfortably appointed, and very privately situated. Had our breakfast outside on a secluded patio. Easily accessible to good restaurants, downtown shopping and bicycle rentals for the Tamany Trace. Miss Maureen was very accommodating for our delayed arrival time, and the source of this title ...

Others have commented on how nice, charming and pleasant the Blue Willow is. I would add that it's also very homey. Tom and Maureen, the proprietors, bend over backwards to make you feel at home- and it shows! The location is absolutely perfect. Park the car and walk everywhere in historic Covington. The rooms are quiet, and it's a perfect...

My wife and I spent the night last night for our 29th Anniversary. We absolutely loved the Orleans Suite with the private balcony in the trees. Except for sleeping, we spent the majority of our stay out on the balcony. In fact, we are probably gong to modify our home to have a similar porch to enjoy.
