Certificate of Excellence
Stay in the mansion that inspired Twelve Oaks in the movie Gone With the Wind! Chosen by the readers of Southern Living Magazine as one of the South's Best Inns, this gorgeous mansion built in 1836 is fully renovated and offers a step back in time with modern amenities to make you feel spoiled rotten. In fact, it has also recently been chosen as one of the Top 10 Inns in the U.S.! Picture yourself surrounded by history and genuine antiques while enjoying a spa bath in a Turkish robe and settling in for a great night’s rest on Egyptian Cotton sheets. All rates include a full home-cooked and locally sourced breakfast, our Southern Sippin' and Nibblin' hour in the afternoon, turn down in the evening with chocolates, and parking and WIFI are included also. The Twelve Oaks is located only 30 miles from downtown in a beautiful historic district called Covington that is known for its charm, movie and TV filming, history and fabulous local restaurants.

I wanted to give Twelve Oaks a top review. I really did, as the Plantation is extremely beautiful and the restoration is excellent. However, except for being shown our rooms when we arrived we hardly saw the owners again. We were briefly shown the wine...More

We stayed in the first floor room by the front door but it was extremely quiet. The house is just a couple of blocks from the downtown “square” which has lots of small shops and eating places. There is no thermostat but there is a...More
