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!

Weddings & Events
This award winning B&B has won the top event awards in the wedding industry including Best of the Knot and the Weddingwire Couples Choice award! The Twelve Oaks makes a stunning location for weddings and events!
We specialize in what we call The Wedding Weekend where you receive exclusive use of the inn for the entire weekend of your wedding. Imagine checking in on Friday and heading to the historic square to the spa with your friends. Have the rehearsal dinner in the evening and then wake up to an amazing breakfast. Prepare to be pampered and served wine and cheese while getting ready and taking photos inside and out of this beautiful property where the most common comment from guests is “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been too!”
Some of the unique benefits of a wedding at The Twelve Oaks:
Plenty of space outside and inside for your event. Want to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony but have an indoor location in case of rain? We’ve got you covered! You have use of the entire property (outside and inside) exclusively for your event.
We NEVER allow more than one wedding per day so you have plenty of time and never feel rushed. In fact, you can have all of your wedding festivities at The Twelve Oaks from your rehearsal and dinner on Friday to the ceremony and reception on Saturday and then enjoy a full breakfast sendoff in the morning before leaving for your honeymoon! Save money on transportation, hotel costs, etc. Have all your bridesmaids stay at the same location the night before the wedding!
Choose your own vendors! Do you have a florist or caterer that you want to use? We let you use the vendors YOU want so that your wedding can be uniquely you! This can also save you money if you want to do the flowers yourself or if you have someone in your family that wants to make your cake!
We allow you to bring in your own alcohol, which can save you money!
We don’t book rooms to people outside of your wedding party on the day of your event so everyone at the property will be your family and friends!
The Twelve Oaks is gorgeous! If you have your event at a place that is already beautiful, you won’t need to spend a fortune on flowers to make it memorable.
