If my incoming guests tonight are half as nice as the guests who left today, it's going to be a great weekend!
I have open rooms on Friday!! How about a 25% discount??!! The weather will supposed to be nice even! Call me at 6512921411 to reserve!
Yesterday, the river didn't have a bit of ice on it and today, it's frozen over and crack-a-lacking! As always, I remember that it is the ice cracking and not the boat!
a boat just went by! it's almost Christmas and the river is wide open!! I'm loving this weather, people!
what do you get the person who has everything?? A gift certificate for a night at the Covington Inn, of course!! Call me to get your holiday gift certificates today at 6512921411!
Thank you, Brenda for being the newest 'like' to the page! you and your wife are about two of the cutest nicest people ever!
I heard this on Facebook so it must be true-it's Small Business Monday! who knew? Anyway, start thinking about gift certificates from the Covington Inn for holiday gifts or about booking the boat for a holiday party. Tell your bosses-we fit about 50 people, 8 overnight. And, as always, tell your friends to become fans of the Inn!! Thank you, friends!!
In case you didn't know, yesterday was the beginning of Winter Rates for the rooms. That means you still get to stay on my charming towboat B & B and you get a better value!! Winter is the best to snuggle in in front of the fireplaces and bring really reconnect with your honey!
Who is ready for the big Pearl Jam concert tomorrow right across the river?? I have guests here who travel all over following the band. I think all the rooms tomorrow are going to the concert so maybe I'll do a little Pearl Jam trivia during their breakfast?? sounds like fun to me!
I love having first time guests here, and I love when they LOVE the Inn and I love getting hugs on their way out the door! I do love my job and hope it shows-every day!!
what a perfect day for a wedding on the boat!
my cute guests just checked in and are celebrating their 27th anniversary! They actually met on adjoining hotel room balconies in Florence! so romantic!
did you know that there are people in the world who go online and book fake reservations at cute Bed and Breakfasts on boats?? what's up with that??
I saw my first heron of the season today! Gotta love the days getting longer and warmer!
The sky is blue and the sun is shining! It's a great day at the Covington Inn!!
such great comedy here lately!! At breakfast today, we were talking about squatters rights in Montana and how the laws here are a bit more strict. My guests in the Pilot House then threaten to squat in the Pilot House Suite and I'll have a heck of a time getting them out!!
! was just looking at Trip Advisor and the Covington Inn Bed and Breakfast is the highest rated accommodation in Saint Paul!!! That's amazing! Hard work does pay off and I couldn't be more proud!
In case you all didn't know, the Covington Inn is still up for sale! My twin sister moved in February to Florida and I'm hoping to join her there when the Inn sells so help spread the word!! Or, maybe you want to buy it and live my awesome lifestyle!

There is a huge Triathalon Duathalon this weekend at Harriet Island so the park will be full of fast, fit people! Lots of excitement going on on the river!!
Yippeeeee!! I saw my first barge of the year quietly pass on by!! I'm loving that!
It's that time of the year to maybe put up a "No public restroom" sign!

My lovely guest last night is traveling the mighty Mississippi River and crossing every bridge! She's retired and slowing down for once in her life! And, she just got done with the Peace Corps! Amazing
my guests are making me cry these days! The Lessards really had me going there! They have stayed with me every Sunday of Irish Fair since I've been here (that's 12 years). If and when the Inn sells, I'm going to miss my regulars sooooooo much!!
As I was checking some guests out the other day I say "Hopefully, See you next time!" and they reply "you aren't going to say that after you see what we did to the bathroom!" What the heck?? For the record, they didn't have the shower curtain all the way in so the floor got a bit wet...
I just received the nicest card (with a check!) in the mail from some guests who were going to stay over the Independence Day weekend but cancelled due to flooding! The money is one thing but the sentiment was amazing! It makes my heart leap! Thank you Marie and Joe!!
As of 5 minutes ago I'm back in business!!! After 13 days, it feels so great to have guests again!! Oh, happy day!
In case you didn't know, the river has flooded me out of business and the Taste of Minnesota has been cancelled here at Harriet Island! What a crazy Mississippi River life I lead!
People sometimes think there is no chance of getting a reservation here in the summer! Truth be told, it's very busy (the next 6 nights are full booked!!) but there is availability! Tell your friends!
I just had a cancellation for the whole weekend of July 11 and 12 if anyone is interested in a great weekend on the boat!! Tell your friends, friends!
well, we've come to that time of the year where the Innkeeper (me) is getting more and more days off! When I'm busy every day, it's hard but now that it's quieting down, I'm getting bored! Here's a mid-week special-book a Sunday thru Thursday in the fall and get 25% discount! Please share this and tell your friends!
It was my ten year anniversary of running this business yesterday! It's been a great ten years thanks to all who have supported me!!
The Friday is kinda quiet so I'm having a special-25% off the Pilot House Suite, the Riverview Suite or the Mate's Quarters. Call me at 6512921411 to make your reservation today!
With all the new hot restaurants in downtown Saint Paul up and running, I think it's time you scheduled a getaway here for a culinary tour of the town!! The New Burger Bar, Saint Dinette, The Dark Horse, the Ox Cart, to name a few...wow
we just today got new mattresses in the Pilot House Suite and the Master's Quarters!! The old ones (3 years old) were kinda squeaky. No more squeak!! Yippee!
Shout out to Black Sheep pizza for treating my super nice guests for their anniversary dinner last night! That's so nice!
I just checked in some of the nicest, silliest guests ever!
getting ready for a busy weekend-welcome Twin City's Marathon runners!
on her way out the door, a guest told me that staying here was like staying with friends and my heart about burst! It's little things like that, for this independent businesswoman, that make it so worthwhile!!
I had a cancellation for tomorrow night (Saturday) if anyone wants the Pilot House Suite! call me!
I turned the fireplaces on today! Who else turned the heat on?
I cried when my cute guests left today. They were here for 5 nights and were the ones who brought me the beautiful flowers! Until the next time!!
The load in has started for the Irish Fair this coming weekend! So excited!
