Loved the atmosphere and tranquility.. definitely a great find, wish I'd known about it sooner but that's also a benefit because we will be back soon for an escape within our own city.
This was a perfect location for our family gathering. Next time we will rent the whole boat. Oh and yes...there will be a next time. Can't wait to go back.
Great bed (soft), lovely breakfast. Wonderful deck.
Not so good if you are over 6’6’’ as ceilings a bit low, especially in the bathroom. This is a minor quibble.
It is unique, comfortable, quiet, cozy, and ina great location. Lizisawonderful hostess and goes out of her way to make you comfortable. Rooms are not spacious but this used to be a working tugboat and it adds to the harm.
It can be hard to find. You have to cross the Wabasha bridge, turn left on Water Street, snake around, following the signs for Harriet Islandand park in the last parking lot.
Stay the night on the Mississippi River – literally – at the Covington Inn. This houseboat is trimmed stem to stern in mahogany, brass and bronze, extending to guests the elegant comfort once reserved aboard historic work vessels for company executives and VIPs. Windows and portals in the boat's tiered design draw light into each room. Sleeping quarters feature a mix of ingenious built-in cabinets with simple furnishings from the Covington's work era. Salvaged fixtures, nautical antiques and historic art provide tasteful reminders of the river and the inn's past life. Sitting permanently moored within the reflection of downtown St. Paul's towering skyline, The Capitol, museums, theater, fine dining and shopping wait just across the bridge. Offering a place for both a quiet getaway and the city spree, the Covington does it all. Beyond the privacy of the staterooms, the salon provides a comfortable gathering place. Lit with clerestory windows and furnished with fireside couches and window-front tables, the salon offers a great place for breakfasting, letter writing and browsing through the Covington library of historic river and shipping books. Our breakfasts, cooked in the boat's galley, pamper you with just a touch of the gourmet while fueling a full-day's exploration.
