The Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast – an award winning historic inn!
Chosen by the readers of Southern Living as one of the South's Best Inns for 2018! The Twelve Oaks has also been chosen as one of the Top 10 B&Bs in the United States on bedandbreakfast.com! It was also selected by the editors of Southern Living for the prestigious Southern Living Hotel Collection and in 2016 was chosen as one of Georgia's Most Romantic Places.
This grand historic mansion was built in 1836 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is considered to be one of the best examples of antebellum architecture in the South and has been featured in numerous books, newspapers, and even in movies and TV shows! Margaret Mitchell was so intrigued by this home that she sent a photograph of it to the producers of Gone with the Wind along with a note that said, "I like this for Ashley’s home".
Completely renovated and updated with every modern convenience, you feel like you are stepping back in time, but you take every modern luxury and convenience with you. With over 11,000 square feet in the mansion and over 3 acres of grounds with a pergola and a gazebo, a pool, a pond, huge oak trees, and a huge deck, you're sure to relax in style. A stay at the Inn includes a delicious home-cooked and locally sourced breakfast, our Southern Sippin’ and Nibblin’ hour with wines and gourmet cheeses, and turndown service with chocolate truffles.
The property is conveniently located in the Atlanta metro area in historic Covington, Georgia, which is also known as The Hollywood of the South for the 100+ movies and TV shows that have been filmed there. It may look familiar to you as it has served as the hometown in many hit shows and movies such as Sweet Home Alabama, Footloose (the recent remake), In the Heat of the Night, Vampire Diaries and many more! The Twelve Oaks is a popular choice for directors and you may recognize it in some of your favorite movies and TV shows (such as Life of the Party with Melissa McCarthy, 2018) or meet a famous director or actor at breakfast! Located within walking distance of the charming historic downtown Covington square, you'll find wonderful shops and award winning restaurants. Or explore the streets lined with historic mansions. Come savor a true taste of the South!
