Beautiful BnB, very nicely appointed and Tom and Maureen (and Mona/the dachshund) were great hosts! Great location within walking distance of many good restaurants. Also several things to do and places to see nearby.

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.

My mother and I stayed here. The location was perfect. The food was perfect. The room was perfect. Did I say that the experience was perfect?!? Private entrance which was great. We had never stayed at a b and b before. If all are like the Blue Willow; then, we have been missing out. We will be back!

“The King Suite on the second floor may be the most quiet but it seems the first floor offers more space & amenities.”

“Our room had a lovely breakfast porch attached leading to a small courtyard with a private entrance. Very nice to wake up to the view with coffee in hand.”

“One of my favorites is the Orleans, with its balcony and access to the screened porch located outside my other favorite, the Cottage. They each have their own thermostat and are large accomodations. The Plantation is smaller, but quite comfy.”
