Chosen in 2015 as one of the Top 10 B&Bs in the United States! Also selected by the editors of Southern Living for the prestigious Southern Living Hotel Collection, The Twelve Oaks is one of the South’s greatest antebellum mansions! This award-winning antebellum mansion was built in 1836 (before Atlanta was established as a town) 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 such as Vampire Diaries and In the Heat of the Night! Cindy Crawford chose it to film a commercial, Tyler Perry chose it for a movie, and it was filmed for Bessie and Vacation (July 2015) and many more! 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”. Fox 5 Atlanta recently featured us on their morning show as a great getaway! Completely renovated in 2012 and updated with WIFI, remote control fireplaces, and all new heating and air conditioning, 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 Southern Sippin’ and Nibblin’ hour, turndown service with waters and chocolate truffles, and delicious homemade breakfasts. The property is conveniently located only 30 miles from downtown Atlanta in historic Covington, Georgia, which is also known as The Hollywood of the South for the 80+ movies and TV shows filmed in the city. It may look familiar to you as it has served as the hometown in many hit shows and movies such as Dukes of Hazzard, Sweet Home Alabama, Footloose (the recent remake), Vampire Diaries, Remember the Titans, American Reunion and many more! Located within walking distance of the charming historic downtown Covington square, there are lots wonderful shops and restaurants to choose from such as the local ice cream parlor, Scoops, that overlooks the square.
