Beautifully decorated home, friendly hosts, and cute southern town..exactly what we were looking for. My husband and love staying at B&B's during our travels and this is one of the best! Wine and cheese on the front porch was absolutely perfect.

I came on a girls trip with my best friend and we had a wonderful stay here. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast in the morning was so cozy. I loved meeting the other guests and getting to know them over an amazing home cooked meal. I can't wait to come and visit again.

I recently stayed at the Twelve Oaks bed and breakfast for my honeymoon. John and Nicole were very accommodating when we had an unexpected late arrival. We snuck right in with no issues. We stayed in the Katherine's Mirror Image Suite that included the antique shower and bathtub. The shower was a fun experience, if a little small. I thoroughly enjoyed the tub! The room is right next to the upper level balcony and I certainly took advantage of it! It was the perfect place to read and relax. The breakfast provided is phenomenal! We especially liked that it was served at 9am. It allowed us to sleep in and not feel rushed to join them for breakfast. John and Nicole make wonderful hosts. As it was our first time at a B&B we were a little apprehensive about the experience, but those soon went away. They made everyone feel at ease and were very helpful with ideas for spending our time in Covington. This was especially appreciative since we didn't have a car and only traveled via walking with only one exception. We spent most of our time exploring the town square which truly is walking distance. There were so many restaurants and cafes to try we weren't stressed in deciding where to eat and we never experienced a bad meal while there. There were plenty of things for us to do and explore during our 4 day stay. Of course, if you are a fan of the Vampire Diaries the town offers quite a few behind the scenes tours. The Twelve Oaks even being featured in Season 2, I believe, of the show. It's really cool being able to see the town I've grown so fond of featured in a show. Most recently, the show Resurrection showed a great scene of the town square in the pilot episode. Now I can "visit" Covington while at home via the shows! I absolutely loved my stay at the Twelve Oaks and would definitely return. I will certainly compare any other stay I may have at other B&B's to Twelve Oaks and am a little worried none of them will compare.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay. John and Nicole were so friendly. The rooms were great. We look forward to visiting soon in the future. We would have loved to have had sausage gravy & biscuits one morning. We did however, did have some very good bruschetta on Saturday night during the wine & cheese hour. We are eager to return!

Best location in all of Covington. Very convenient to the new Mystic Grill, Square Perk, Bradley's BBQ and all the squares amenities. Every room is absolutely gorgeous. The details are spot on and the sheets and robes are so comfortable. The rooms all have fireplaces with remotes. John and Nicole are very nice and always accommodating. Breakfast is delicious. Nicole will ask what you would like for the next morning. The entire home is very clean. Perfect for a romantic getaway of a vampire stalking retreat. My favorite place to visit anywhere.

My husband and I were visiting Covington and a friend referred us to Twelve Oaks. I visited their website, which was very nice, but the pictures do not do the rooms justice. The place has been meticulously restored and furnished. I truly felt transported back in time except with every modern comfort and convenience. The room and bathroom were large, which I did not expect because most of the older hotels we have stayed in the rooms are small and bathrooms are even smaller. Nicole and John were incredibly nice. The food was wonderful, organic and locally sourced. Twelve Oaks is a little slice of heaven on Earth and I cannot wait to visit again. ----- Christine and Jerry

From booking the reservation to checking out, I have NEVER had a better experience at a bed & breakfast than I had at The Twelve Oaks. The house is magnificent and inviting. We were welcomed by John when we arrived and from that point on, our experience couldn't have been more perfect. The Twelve Oaks is a true southern masterpiece. There is nothing about it that isn't simply outstanding.

I normally don't care for staying in B&Bs but the 12 Oaks is exceptional. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is charming.

Stayed at The Twelve Oaks Bed and Breakfast for our wedding anniversary and absolutely loved it! Gorgeous rooms, amazing historic home and grounds, luxurious linens and amenities, and fabulous food. We have stayed in five star hotels, and this experience was definitely five star. Quaint, charming town with an active square and street upon street of antebellum architecture to wander. Nicole and John are gracious innkeepers. We will definitely be going back!

My daughter and I stayed in the Suite Home Alabama room (only one with twin beds) for our Vampire Stalkers tour in Covington (The Vampire Diaries show is filmed in this town). An amazing place. Beautifully restored, with great history. Quiet area and surrounded by other wonderful homes. Delightful town with all the southern hospitality you always hear about. As an aside, the rating system shouldn't be build on "expectations", since the readers don't know what mine were. If I expected it to be spectacular and it was, I can only give it 3 stars? Too subjective.

We loved this place. We had a great time and the innkeepers are the friendliest and the most helpful people ever. Our room was on the first floor and really quiet, which was nice, but although the headboard was a historic gem of beauty, the mattress was a bit uncomfortable. We were tired, so we didn't loose any sleep, but it was definitely something we noticed instantly. The bathroom had original figures, which were nice, but the shower tub combo was a little tight for my husband. The food was excellent and obviously made with love and good recipes, but the portions were small. It would have been nice to have larger portions. I felt guilty asking for more. They have done a lovely job with restoring this house. It really felt like home away from home.

Friendly and Accommodating Host & Hostess. Loved Grounds and our Room and Bathroom (the Cannon Ball Room). Wine and Cheese in the dining room was a perfect start to the evening. Very cute and unique rooms with beautiful finishing touches. Could easily walk to downtown to find a small quaint town with a couple restaurants, stores and an ice cream shop!

We stayed at Twelve Oaks for four days in three different rooms in mid October. Everything about the stay was perfect. The building inside and out as well as the grounds is beyond stunning and the history on the place is amazing. John and Nicole, the owners, were absolutely wonderful and we definitely received southern hospitality ten fold. The rooms are unbelievable, the rib cage shower is a once in a lifetime experience and the architecture and style of each room is visually stunning. The breakfast each morning was to die for and was a great way to interact with our hosts and other guests. The wine and cheese in the evenings was also a nice way to relax and I highly recommend the pear spread. The location of Twelve Oaks was also very nice because of its close proximity to the town square. If you are thinking of visiting Covington or the Atlanta area STAY HERE you will not be disappointed. -- Jodi

My fiancé and I stayed here this past weekend. It was more than we ever expected. The house was even more beautiful than pictures could ever capture. There is definitely no "Cookie cutter" feel about the rooms because each one has it's own personality and decor. The owners were simply amazing and genuinely seemed to care about their guests. The turndown service was a wonderful surprise as well and unexpected. We are planning to return ASAP to set up a weekend to have our wedding there. We couldn't have been happier with our stay!

The house is gorgeous and the location is perfect - just a short walk to the town square. We stayed in Sweet Home Alabama and loved the claw foot tub and view from the 3rd floor. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the linens were really soft. The whole trip was luxurious and a lot of fun. The owners were friendly and easy to talk with. Wine and cheese time was a great way to chat with other guests, and the breakfast was yummy with great coffee. I would definitely go back!

Beautiful home in a quant town. Skimpy breakfast with only biscuits one type of jelly, gravy, one juice, caffeine coffee no fruit or eggs etc. just biscuits...Not a luxury for the price! The room was extremely hot with only one vent in the top corner of the 13 ft. ceiling. Felt like we were going to melt! Owners are stifling at breakfast and happy hour , the way they just had to keep standing over us and talking and would not let us just enjoy some time alone IE what you do in a B and B! So pretty place but they need to give the visitors room to breath, turn up the air conditioner in summer months, and expand the breakfast past grands biscuits!

Hi Camille. We are so sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your experience. We always work hard to make sure that every guest here has a wonderful experience, but unfortunately it sounds like there were a few bumps during your stay. We do carry decaffeinated coffee and I apologize that we were out of it during your stay. I also apologize that your room was hot. We completely redid the HVAC systems in the house at great cost during the renovation and they work great and we keep the air set on 71 on our thermostats. Please let us know next time and we’d be happy to adjust the thermostat for you. Most folks love our creamy sausage gravy and biscuits; we are always happy to scramble some eggs and provide an alternative if a guest doesn’t like what is on the menu for the day. I would like to direct you to contact the owner, Nicole, at 770-385-4005 to amend the situation. We are a small, family run business and care very much about our customers and want all of our guests to have a wonderful experience. Again, I am sorry to hear that this was not a wonderful experience for you and I hope we can move forward and find a solution. We want you to be happy.

We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. This was the most wonderful experience for a first time bed and breakfast. We felt like we went back in time for a few days. The owners are wonderful. The breakfast was delicous. I don't know how any other bed and breakfast can compare, but it sure changed our feelings on bed and breakfast places. We will for sure be back there.

Twelve Oaks is the most beautiful Bed and Breakfast I've ever seen. Everything was absolutely perfect. Our stay was extremely relaxing and enjoyable. Nicole and John were so warm and gracious, so welcoming. The rooms were spotless and luxurious. I stayed in the Frankly Scarlett room, my son in the Salvatore Brothers Study (and he didn't want to come out of his room, at all :-)), and my daughters stayed in Katherine's Mirror Image room. We all loved our rooms and dreaded leaving the inn. The grounds are gorgeous. The prices are very reasonable for a place this nice. The breakfast the next morning was amazing. We will definitely be back. It couldn't have been a better experience. I was in awe of the history, too. I am a Vampire Diaries fan as well as a Gone with the Wind fan. I was in heaven!

Looking for a B&B for a long weekend in Atlanta I came across Twelve Oaks. After seeing the photos I couldn't resist. The drive into Atlanta is 45 min. or less depending on where you are going. The owners Nicole and John are very gracious hosts. Breakfast was delicious and the wine and cheese hour was very relaxing. The small town of Covington was delightful and the town square within walking distance. The accommodations are 5 star, and with 3 floors and 8 rooms all beautifully decorated, I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place to get away.

We were very pleased with our stay! We stayed during Christmas time and enjoyed the little special touches that included the beautiful decorated tree in the front of the house to the stockings that were hung on our fireplace with goodies from local vendors for us to keep! We also took a bike ride through town with bikes provided by the owners for us to use. John and Nicole seemed like friends instead of the owners and were very hospitable and inviting! I would definetly recommend a stay here and that is saying alot considering I have stayed in many B&B's all over the world both U.S. and abroad!

The house is wonderfully appointed - decorated with antiques yet equipped with modern creature comforts. The rooms are spectacular, the history is wonderful, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and the food is delicious. We could not have hoped for a better backdrop or host for this most special event. You will not be disappointed by anything at this excellent bed and breakfast.

After a stressful drive from Illinois, Twelve Oaks was a wonderful place to reenergize. Our accommodations were divine. The bed was luxurious and the deep claw footed tub was fabulous. John provided a personal tour of the mansion. Each room is beautifully decorated in the time period. It is like stepping back into the pre Civil War era. We were waiting for Scarlet to stroll down the staircase. We stayed on the third floor which includes a comfortable setting area complete with refreshment packed refrigerator and goodies for snacks. Just when you think it can't get any better, breakfast is served under the huge antique chandelier on white table linens. The french toast is so delicious. Our hosts were so kind and generous with plenty of information for local touring. Thank you so much for a wonderful mini-vacation. We will return. So highly recommended, it is a must for anyone who enjoys luxurious accommodations at a reasonable price.

The Twelve Oaks Bed and Breakfast is absolutely amazing. The owners are sincerely charming and willing to accommodate guests in any way that they can. My mother and I traveled to Covington for a little overnight getaway. She is from Arizona and has always wanted to see the inside of a plantation home so as a Mother's Day surprise I booked us a room. I chose The Salvator Brother's Study because I am a fan of the show The Vampire Diaries. The Bed and Breakfast is located within walking distance to the historic town square, and the shops and restaurants are very delightful. Upon check in Nicole, the owner, invited us to look around the house and make ourselves comfortable. We toured the rooms and fell in love with the breathtaking design elements of each. The third floor was under renovation but John told us to go ahead and look around and talked with us about the ideas they are working on that included four new rooms. We are so excited to see the final designs. Each room has it's own beauty and unique details. They offer a wine and cheese gathering, luxurious robes, dreamy soft beds with turn down, and a lovely home cooked breakfast. We spent most of our time just rocking on the porches and letting time slow down to just enjoy our magical stay. I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend this experience to all. Thank you so much Nicole and John, and staff for making our stay enchanting.

We were so impressed with The Twelve Oaks B&B. It was by far the nicest one we have stayed at in the 11 years that we have been staying at B&Bs. We fell in love with our friendly hosts and their precious little boy. They even showed us around the unfinished part of the house since my husband is a builder and these things fascinate him! Nicole has done a marvelous job at restoring the house with awesome modern conveniences, which adds to the house's charm. Felt so pampered and at home. We stayed in the room "in the heat of the night" an adorable little room with private porch. I would love to come back and try one of the new rooms they are working on. Thanks Jon and Nicole for being perfect hosts. Blessings on your new adventure of owning a B&B...you will be fabulous! Greg and Sharla Graber

Let’s start with “WOW” and we will try to clarify from there. Whether you are a fan of Hollywood, the Old South or just want the perfect place to stay, you cannot do better than The Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast in Covington, Georgia. www.thetwelveoaks.com We travel extensively each year and try to turn our dozens of overnight stays into memorable stays whenever possible. While we stay at some very nice places, some of which have even made “Conde Nast’s Gold List of the Top 510 Places in the World”, we have never stayed at a location we felt more comfortable at. Twelve Oaks has so much beauty mixed with an overwhelming sense of leisurely pampering, that a stay here is the perfect meld of grandma’s and grandeur. It is truly like Heaven on Earth!!! While everything is antique and beautiful, what we cannot stress enough is the comfort of the beds. Everyone commented at breakfast that the beds were unbelievable and Nicole let it be known that beds in hotels have always been one of her main critiques, so when she started a place of her own, she made sure they were the best. One night in these beds and you’ll know where the reference to Heaven came from! Did we mention leisurely pampering? Breakfast was served each morning in the dining room downstairs and over the course of our stay included: Sausage gravy and biscuits, stuffed French toast, and a quiche that was to die for. If ever there was a time and occasion that would be my choice for when the Lord would take me, it would be while eating quiche at Twelve Oaks! What a way to go!!! This review was much longer and we are hoping Trip Advisor does not have a similar 2000 character limit. Since we were not able to say everything we wanted, you will simply have to book a room and see for yourself! Thank You Nicole for such a fantastic stay!!! Jim & Stephanie Patton

The Twelve Oaks was my first bed and breakfast. I must say that I was so completely and utterly impressed. Nicole was spot on with her southern hospitality and charm. I could not have asked for a better host. I stayed in "Katherine's Mirror Image Suite". The bed frame was beautifully hand painted, the ribbed shower cage was amazing and the footed bath tub was so relaxing. I am already planning my next trip to stay there...and hopefully next time get to see a vampire or two. ;-)

Our stay at Twelve Oaks (the old Lockwood Mansion) was wonderful! Nicole and John are super hosts, and it was like staying with family! Everything was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, and as good as any 4 or 5 star hotel we have been to. The little finishing touches made all the difference. We stayed in Katherine's Mirror Image room, and while the rib cage shower is a little intimidating at first, it was a very unique experience, and one you will only get at Twelve Oaks. After my shower, I put on the softest robe you can imagine, and felt like I was wrapped in a cloud while I sat in front of the fireplace. They create the perfect atmosphere. The bed linens are amazingly soft and cozy! The breakfast was delicious! The stuffed french toast is superb. We explored the third floor, which is under renovation, and can't wait to see what the final product looks like. We cannot say enough good things about our stay, and know we will be back again soon!

The Twelve Oaks Bed and Breakfast was a great place to stay! We were one of the first guests to stay and the owner Nicole was so kind and willing to help with anything. By walking we could be on the downtown square in 3 minutes, with Covington, GA being known as the "Hollywood of the South" you can see many things being filmed on the square which is a neat experience especially being a huge Vampire Diaries Fan! It is also located only 30 minutes from Atlanta and there is always something to do there! It is a gorgeous home and a relaxing place to get away. The people were awesome and kind and overall just a great place to get away for a few days!

Twelve Oaks is an absolutely amazing bed and breakfast! Everything is immaculate, clean, perfectly decorated, etc. The rooms are all gorgeous and the house and the property is beautiful. Nicole and John are two of the sweetest people and will make your stay even more worthwhile! I would definitely recommend and go back to The Twelve Oaks. They have vampire diaries themed rooms as well as gone with the wind themed rooms, and even if you are not a fan of one of these the rooms are still absolutely stunning! It is also close enough where you can walk to the main square for food, dessert, shopping, etc. Great place!
