Tucked away in Greenery

We were attracted to the Covington Manor for its location near Lake Ripley. The choice was a good one, away from the urban afflictions of the state capital twenty minutes away.

A Wonderful Labor Day Weekend Getaway

5 on September 02, 2014

Our Labor Day stay at Covington Manor far exceeded my expectations. We were met by Carol who is a gracious host and very interesting person. Our room was impeccable, interesting and comfortable. Breakfast was a treat, and because my wife has Celiac disease, Carol made her meal with gluten free bread. It was just as tasty as the regular portions. There were three couples at breakfast and we were unknown to each other. Carol joined the group after breakfast and the conversation was so interesting we lingered until almost noon. We've stayed in lots of B & B's and give this one, and the experience, our highest recommendation.

Couldn't Have Been Better

Covington is absolutely gorgeous and I don't think I've ever been in a more clean was spotless. We were warmly greeted by Carol and immediately felt at home. She was just wonderful. I can't say enough about her and this was just phenomenal! Our room was comfortable and we had the windows open and slept like babies. Our breakfast of quiche, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberry movie coffee and juice was just outstanding. We will definitely go back!!

The Covington Manor is an exceptionally well cared for property and you can see why when you meet Carol. She was very welcoming and she offered spot on advice for where to dine and what sights to see. Carol is by far the most accommodating and gracious hostess that we have ever met!

Cozy, beautiful house with a wonderful host!
