About Us

The Rivers Retreat is a sprawling 13 acre retreat center located in Covington, Louisiana. Bordered by the whate sandy beaches of the scenic Tchefuncte river, The Rivers Retreat is unlike any other wedding venue. Our facility affords couples the opportunity to have their wedding, exactly the way they want it, without any interference or time constraints. When you reserve the Rivers Retreat, you, your family, and your guests will have exclusive use of the entire grounds. Rental of our facilty includes the following:

  • Large banquet room along with all of the dining tables, chairs, and table linens.
  • Commercial kitchen that is attached to the banquet room. We provide every pot, pan, flatware, serving dishes, and kitchen equipment that you or the caterer of YOUR choice can use during your time here.
  • Very large community room which is perfect for cocktail parties, ceremonies, or a place for games and movies ( we have a pull down screent and a projector).
  • Enormous outdoor, screened pavilion which has a gorgeous brick fireplace. Ths structure was actually built in the late 1800's and is the perfect setting for your ceremony and/or reception.
  • Jr. Olympic size swimming pool, which is fenced and gated and contains a covere pavilion, bar area, and ample pool furniture and umbrellas, and pool toys.
  • Tennis court ( with basketball goals), mountain bicycles, horsehoes, croquet, vollyball, and other games.
  • 10 clean, stylish cabins that sleep up to 50 guests. We provide all of the sheets, towels, and soap and shampoo.
  • Fire pit area with seating. We provide firewood every night for you and your guests so they can relax by an open fire and make memories and smores.

One of the main advantages to our facility over others, is that you will be totally unrushed here. If you and your guests want to party until 5 in the morning, you are allowed to do that here. You and your guests will be able to relax and savor your event, as opposed to rushing through it while someone follows you around with a stop watch telling you when and what to do. You, your friends and your family will be able to make a lifetime of memories while you are here and your experience will be more meaningful and relaxed. Please reach out to me if you would like to schedule a tour, or if you have any other questions.

  • Value for Cost:
  • Flexibility:
  • We ended up not choosing this vendor due to him being slightly out of budget, but he is super nice, has a pretty property, and has great pricing for what he offers. If we had a larger budget, we would have booked him for sure as he offers the entire property for the whole weekend, which is great for close knit families.

    Elizabeth, I really appreciate your kind words! Congratulations again on your engagement and I wish you and your fiancé' a lifetime of happiness. Marcus
