Covington cottage description

Private Getaway situated on Navigable Deep Water

The Cottage is a wonderful 120 yr old waterfront cottage set on the banks of the beautiful Tchefuncte River in St. Tammany Parish. LA. Centrally located on the north shore of New Orleans, you will find yourself a mere 4 miles from historic downtown Covington, 5 miles from the oak covered lake community of Mandeville, 7 miles from the waterfront village of Madisonville and 45 minutes from downtown New Orleans. Shopping and Dining opportunities are abundant in any direction should you choose to venture out of this river-side oasis.

Wake up and have that first cup of coffee in your robe as you greet the morning on your private 1000 sq. ft. deck extending over the Tchefuncte River and watch the boats calmly pass on the water. Soak up the sun on the deck, hang your legs over the dock and fish, read a book, or just enjoy the quiet. The possibilities are endless.

The cottage affords you your own private acre and comfortable arrangements for 2. The structure being 120 years old boasts double cypress walls hand assembled with square nails that remain in the building to this day. Built on the site of one of the first man made swimming pools in the southern United States. The cottage has served dutifully in its role as a place of recreation and relaxation for over a century.

Past guests who have stayed will sometimes call just to ask how the cottage is doing while still more return to enjoy the unique environment time and again. We would love to welcome you to this private getaway on the Tchefuncte River. The cottage is a special place you will have trouble leaving, will not soon forget, and a place you will surely fall in love with.
