Southern Luxury and Relaxation

The home, town and people were all exceptional! From the moment we drove onto the Twelve Oaks B&B, we were in awe of the opulence. Every room was immaculate and designed with an amazing eye for period authenticity. Nicole, John and staff greeted us and encouraged us to look around and enjoy the property. The large front and back porches and the huge yard made for a quiet and relaxing stay. The breakfasts were delicious each day and we lingered over coffee with other guests who became fast friends. Of note were the strawberry/raspberry topped pancakes and stuffed French toast—Mmmm! We thoroughly enjoyed an in-room massage with Selena, dined at the Mystic Grill of the Vampire Diaries fame, were spooked on our ghost tour offered through Wild Art and of course had our fill of ice-cream at Scoops. We stayed 4 nights and it was a true get-away. Within walking distance of the quaint town of Covington with shops and restaurants, our visit to Twelve Oaks Covington was a trip we will always treasure!
