My husband and I enjoyed a quick getaway at The Twelve Oaks. The room was beautiful, the food delicious, and the staff friendly and accommodating. Our only suggestion would be to offer breakfast before 9:00am, which would allow guests the option of getting out and doing more earlier in the day. Overall though--we had a great stay!
Let's face it. Not all bed and breakfast venues have the same quality standards, so booking one you haven't been to before can be risky. In the case of 12 Oaks, let not your heart be troubled. This place is amazing, with beautiful period furnishings throughout, large and interesting rooms, a wonderfully comfortable bed, friendly and accommodating staff and a beautifully presented and delicious morning breakfast. Neither my wife nor I can envision a plantation-style bed and breakfast that would exceed what we discovered here. The only surprise was the location, which is on a residential street near downtown Covington. This facility would be well suited for sprawling and secluded acreage in the country. Regardless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly do so again.
My wife and I stayed for 2 nights last week and had a great time. The place is beautiful, the breakfast outstanding (wine & cheese hour is cool) and the staff is exceptional. A definite do over next time I'm anywhere close to the area.
Every year my husband and I take a week vacation for our birthdays in October. . My husband actually picked our stay at The Twelve Oaks this year and I couldn't have been happier as I am Gone With The Wind fan. The Twelve Oaks did not disappoint as each room is unique in its decorations of antiques and chandeliers. From the moment we got there, we were treated like family. Special thanks to Travis, Chris and Katherine for accommodating our every wish and making out stay so relaxing and enjoyable. We will be back next year to take another step back in time.
My sister and I stayed here for my birthday on our way through to Atlanta. We both are Vampire Diaries fans and knew they filmed on location here. Plus it's close to the town square where they've also filmed. The house is beautiful and they've maintained it very well. I really enjoyed exploring the house and taking photos. The square is only a few blocks away and close enough to walk. The house, and town itself, is so quaint that you almost feel like you've went through time staying there. I can see why it was chosen as a filming site. The residents were all very welcoming and nice. The breakfast was good it was scrambled eggs, stuffed French toast, and sausage. Being there are only 8 rooms you will be dining at the main dining table with other guests, I don't know if that is typical for B&Bs though being this was my first stay at one. Overall I really enjoyed the experience and exploring the town. I would recommend staying here, especially if you're a fan of TVD.
What an incredible and relaxing B&B!!! You feel as if you have stepped back into time and nothing in the world can hurt you! Such a beautiful home and every room is like walking into a time capsule. The staff is some of the most dedicated, kind, and professional people you will ever encounter. They will go out of their way to make you feel special and important. The breakfast is so out of this world! With the Honor System, there is always snack and drinks on hand!!! Hot Tea, Coffee, Water, Everything you want!!! This place is worth every dime you spend!!! I stayed for one night, but I would at least recommend staying at least 2 or even 3 just to really get it all sunk in! This is 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!!!! Nothing in the south beats TTOBAB!!! :) - Darren W. Conrad (Motion Picture Producer, Screenwriter, Actor, SAG-AFTRA)
all I needed was a clean place t stay and I was overwhelmed with the little goodie I found in this Inn! details to the max! The incredible shower/tub, down comforter, cozy robes and personnel that were so helpful! DO THIS HOTEL and treat yourself!
The James Madison Inn helped us complete our memorable weekend as we got married at Variety Works next door. The service was impeccable, the rooms were beautiful, and my guests all had a fabulous time. Thank you!
This plantation has itl! All that's missing is Scarlett and Rhett! We stayed in the Sweet Home Alabama room. Wonderful soaking tub!!!! Gorgeous furniture and the most comfortable bed ever!!! Breakfast was yummy!! Almost too beautiful to eat, but we did!!! You have to experience this southern comfort and hospitality of Twelve Oaks! The grounds are well kept! I loved spending time rocking on the front porch daydreaming of the barbeque at Twelve Oaks in Gone and With The Wind!!!! Fiddle dee dee! I'll think about it tomorrow!!!
My daughter stayed at the Twelve Oaks on our way home to Louisiana from a 13 day road trip through Savannah, Hilton Head and Charleston. We stayed in the Suite Home Alabama Suite because the king size bed can be split into two twin beds if need be. My daughter (20) walked in, went up to our room and turned to me and asked, "Do we have to leave?" The rooms are all beautiful with gorgeous baths and everything is so exquisitely appointed. We were welcomed to walk through and look at other rooms that were unoccupied and we stepped out onto the balcony. Just majestic! Breakfast was AMAZING! We stayed at three bed and breakfast homes on our trip: Hamilton-Turner Inn in Savannah; Palmer B&B in Charleston; and Twelve Oaks in Covington. I have also stayed at three B&B's in Louisiana, one B&B in Tennessee, one B&B in Texas, and two B&B's in Arkansas.. Twelve Oaks is by far the best one I have stayed at thus far.
We always feel so special and relaxed when we stay at The James Madison Inn. Everyone is so friendly and are willing to help in any way. We don't live far from there, but it seems like we are in a resort somewhere. We can't wait to go back soon. We are there at least 2 times a year for a long weekend stay.
What a wonderful quaint farmhouse in a beautiful quiet setting. This is an absolutely perfect setting for a family reunion and wedding. Hostess Crystal attends to every detail and is the fabulous cook of the organic foods grown there. I would highly recommend a visit here!!
Our experience was fabulous from beginning to end. The hotel is elegant but not intimidating. We stayed in a king room with a park view. The room was large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was an extensive buffet and very good. We didn't want to leave.
My husband and I spent three wonderful days at Twelve Oaks. Our "Canon Ball Run" room was an incredible peek into the past and as comfortable as any top notch place we've stayed in the present. We felt as attended to as the original owners must have felt in "days gone by". Travis and Chris were particularly warm, friendly, and professionally attentive. Each morning greeted us with another delicious breakfast, great service, and warm and friendly chat. We truly felt at home at Twelve Oaks. The authentic period touches throughout the house were thoughtfully chosen. That, coupled with great meals in the lovely dining room, warm service, interesting chats with other lodgers and the ability to enjoy leisurely time on the grounds and porches, made us feel as if we'd been zapped back in time to a grand and graceful day of true Southern hospitality.
From the sheets on the bed to the warm staff, this is truly a great place to stay. I would like the whole room to be mine forever. Loved the gentle aroma in the room and the cushy chairs in front of the fireplace. The bathroom was spotless and the shower wonderful. The little magnifying mirror was a nice touch even tho I could not look very long at my wrinkles! This is a lovely, lovely place. The breakfast was a tad underwhelming but who cared?! Tried to click Outstanding on review but site would not allow it.
This is a little gem in Madison. Lovely, quality, sophisticated decor, not your typical quaint b&b. We go here as often as we can, and enjoy walking around the small downtown area right from the hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed at stay at the Brady Inn. We selected the McIntyre Room, which was spacious and well appointed, with a very comfortable bed. The staff members we met, Rick, Laurie, and Kim, were very accommodating and gracious. Dot, the chef, prepared a delicious breakfast for our enjoyment. We even had a chance to visit with Brady, the cat. For a dinner treat, check out Ricardo's. We hope to be back sooner than later.
An amazing jewel in Covington, GA. Beautifully restored and decorated antebellum home. The owners and staff are very gracious and informative. The themed rooms are exquisite with comfortable beds and baths. The breakfast was ample and delicious. Definitely recommend staying here if you're in the area.
Three couples enjoyed having rooms on the 3rd floor for a 2 day stay. Can't say enough positive things about Travis and the staff. He was very helpful and accomodating to all our requests and needs. Would stay at the Twelve Oaks Inn again in a heartbeat. The breakfast was very well done - the sausage gravy was a treat! My husband and I stayed in the Canonball Run Suite. We enjoyed the large copper tub. Room was large, clean, and well appointed. Loved sitting in the window seat every morning and reading for a few minutes before starting the day. Covington is a town full of history both new and old. The walking tour of historic homes was a great way to get some added exercise!
