The Twelve Oaks is Temporarily Closed
The home that inspired Twelve Oaks in Gone with the Wind is temporarily closed to work on some new attractions that you won’t want to miss. We plan to offer historic tours of the mansion and grounds making this the only antebellum home of this size that you can tour in the Atlanta area. Explore Georgia named the Twelve Oaks as one of the top antebellum sites to see in Georgia. We plan to offer both an IPAD self-guided tour of the mansion and grounds (think of this like an audio tour you’d take in a historic home in Charleston or Louisiana, only much better) as well as a guided tour; both of these will give you not only the history of the house, but information on the renovation, the history, and even behind the scenes info of the many of the movies and tv shows that have been filmed here. You may even be able to try on one of Scarlett’s gowns from Gone with the Wind! We do not yet have a reopen date, but we will post it here when we do and you’ll be able to make a reservation at that time. Or, sign up for our email list below to be notified as soon as we have a reopen date. Take care ya’ll and hope to see you soon!

Come stay with us and take advantage of a phenomenal opportunity to stay in of one of the south’s crown jewels as all of our suites are located inside the mansion.

We plan to spoil you rotten and you’ll never want to leave the comfortable plush beds with Egyptian cotton sheets or the soft Turkish robes!

Great place, great location, just great!
This is a truly amazing property which is full of amazing history. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. It is literally a 5 min walk into Covington with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The breakfasts are traditional southern fare so bring your biggest appetite! The cheese and wine at 5pm is a nice touch and really gives you a chance to mingle if you wish. This was our first B&B experience in the USA and definitely won’t be the last. nick1981
