Local Lodging with Outdoor Living in Covington

When you’re out and about in Covington, there’s plenty to keep you busy: critically-acclaimed dining, vibrant cultural festivals, and miles of outdoor recreation abound. But there’s a time and a place to slow down the pace a little as well, and the gracious porches and courtyards of the city’s many locally-owned accommodations invite you to sit back, take a load off, and enjoy the beautiful Louisiana fall. Skip the chain hotels and discover the rejuvenating experience of true Southern hospitality.

That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Camellia House Bed and Breakfast. Besides the top-notch service and amenities, some of the biggest draws of Camellia House are the built-in opportunities for guests to enjoy a little (or a lot of) time outside. The B&B features expansive porches for some classic Southern outdoor relaxation, with each suite sporting private access and its own outdoor seating areas. Beyond that, there’s also the pool area compete with hot tub, beautifully landscaped gardens, swings and hammocks, fire pits…you could spend your whole stay just luxuriating on the grounds!

“You could sit on the poolside and not even know the town exists,” says Camellia House owner Linda Chambless. “But if you wanted, you can walk off the porch and straight into downtown.” It’s as easy as stepping out of the gate and into your next Northshore adventure!

The Southern Hotel is another boutique Covington gem that draws on both its historic roots and contemporary local art vibes to create a space that is elegant yet welcoming—much like the city itself. That atmosphere extends to the hotel’s classic courtyard and lush gardens, perfect as a retreat from the work-a-day hustle or as a venue for a memorable event.

No matter what your trip entails, there are plenty more places to make your Northshore getaway a scenic retreat. Snuggle into a cozy suite at the Blue Willow B&B, or sprawl in Southern luxury at Annadele’s Plantation. Book your stay in Covington today, and look forward to cool autumn breezes and a warm Southern reception!
