We stayed in Maggie's cabin for our wedding weekend. Maggie's cabin was perfect.. clean, peaceful, and the view.. amazing...what a beautiful way to start our new life together. It has all we could want and more, her special touches can be felt and seen throughout the cabin, as if that wasn't enough she even had flowers on the table. She truly is the perfect host. We loved staying in your cabin and look forward to returning in the future one day!! Thank you again for helping our weekend be so perfect!!!!!!!!

Maggie is an amazing host! Everything we needed she provided and if we were without, we knew how to get a hold of her. After a week of hotel life, having a full kitchen was a blessing. It's quiet, secluded, but just close enough to the convenience Downtown Covington. Everything about this place is as wonderful as the pictures described.
Response from Maggie:
Thanks, Nick! I appreciate it! Next time, I'll order up some sunshine for you!!
The McConnells have a beautiful waterfront estate. The Cozy Cabin is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors and the chic interior is ideal for a relaxing get away. If you like a place with good vibes, amazing amenities, and lovely hosts, then this is the place for you. Bring a canoe if you have one because there is easy to the water! We are already looking forward to our next visit.
My wife and I live in New Orleans. We often find ourselves needing a short weekend escape in nature to relax, recuperate and recharge the soul. The northshore is a great location: abundant waterfronts, several small towns with careful focus on revitalized downtown districts and plenty of activities: Abita Brewery, Ponchartrain Vineyards, Tammany Trace, Fontaineblue State Park, local events - there's never a shortage of things to do.
We've stayed at several places in the area and reviewed listings like this one for dozens of places. Let me save you the hours of searching: stay with Maggie. You will not find a better location anywhere on the north shore.
The cabin itself is fabulous. New construction, quality materials and thoughtful design - this is a place you would be delighted to have as your home. The 'cozy' description is apt - my wife and I remarked to each other how difficult it would be for us to design a place as comfortable from scratch, even with careful, deliberate effort.
The setting is equally excellent. Heavily wooded, well-kept grounds and strategically placed greenery barriers makes the setting comfortable, private and quiet. The cabin sits right on the riverbank, with two seating areas and a hammock to enjoy outside. We passed the mornings sitting with coffee on the river bank and the afternoons laying in the hammock with a book.
Finally Maggie and her husband are a welcoming, wonderful couple. Maggie was over the top helpful, with plenty of communication and advice on how best to enjoy the local area. From dining, to drinks and afternoon activities - they've lived in the area for years and are excited to share their experience.
If you're looking for a relaxing retreat on the North Shore, you won't find a better one. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to returning!
Our four night stay at the Mcconnell's BnB was wonderful. Maggie was a caring hostess with an amazing attention to detail. The cabin was beautiful, spacious, and comfortable....a perfect getaway. We enjoyed the local cuisine and the short drive to New Orleans was perfect. Thank You Maggie. - The Hill Family.
While my stay was brief, Maggie was a great hostess and the cottage was better in person than expected. This place is perfect for more than a days stay while on vacation or visiting the nearby area and not terribly far from a major freeway.

It turns out this cabin was gutted and remodeled by Maggie and her husband and they have great taste with interior design. The TV was a bit old but not a necessity at all for my trip. That is easily ignored by the wood fireplace and great kitchen.
The whole experience was great from start to finish and there was a real personal touch added to the trip that you don't find when staying at a hotel. Maggie helped my get around traffic when heading into New Orleans and even offered her expertise on local places to eat. I was especially surprised to find bagels (with fixings), cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit waiting at the cabin.
I highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a friendly and helpful host with a great location. While New Orleans is about an hour away, the drive isn't terrible and the surrounding area is worth visiting.
Amazing guests, very respectful and understanding, clean, passionate about arts and super cool.
It's been an absolute pleasure!
What a great couple !! Such fun in meeting them .always welcome to return .
Maggie and her husband were very nice! Thank you for you stay and your sweet note on the bag!:-)
Maggie is a highly recommended guest; very clean, friendly, warm, and very spiritual. She was a perfect guest. I could hardly tell that she was here, they left the apartment so clean! . I would welcome she back anytime!
I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet Maggie and I am glad that I met her expectations! She was a pleasure to talk with and of course she brought to the table all the wonderful qualities we hosts look for in guests: clean, quiet, respectful, warm, and adventurous! Maybe that last one is specific to me... :-) I would happily host Maggie again in the future and hope that she keeps me posted of her travels here. Thank you Maggie!
Great guests, would love to have again.
maggie and rich were the best guests I could have asked for! two of the most pleasant, cheerful, easy-going sweetest people I've ever met. I definitely recommend them as hosts or ad guests, you'll feel like family.
Maggie and her family were a delight to have as guests. Very respectful of my home, and extremely friendly and polite. They also were quite entertaining and engaging guests, and we all seemed to get along famously. I strongly recommend them as guests.
