I was drawn to this place thanks to a TV show, The Vampire Duaries. My son and I stayed in The Heat of the Night Suite and had the coolest skeleton key to open our suite. Room was nice and clean. We even had two of the softest robes in our room. The place utterly took my breath away! The grounds were well kept. Staff was wonderful and showed true southern hospitality. Turndown service at night with waters and chocolate. Breakfast was so tasty. We had OJ, eggs, waffles with fruit and turkey sausage.We hated to leave but will deff be back!

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful, make you feel right at home and are willing to stop and chat about the house or anything with you. The food is wonderful and there is a nice little wine hour in the evenings included. The rooms are just beautiful and even the small ones feel so roomy. The history and uniqueness of the historic home felt like you were stepping back in time but with all of the modern conveniences you could want. Highly highly recommended!

I had a business trip to Georgia recently and invited my wife to travel with me. It was around her birthday, so I arranged several little surprises for her; one was a stay at the Twelve Oaks. She loves Gone with the Wind, so was very excited about being at the B&B and staying in the Frankly Scarlett room. The breakfast was excellent. We arrived late, and the instructions for entering was clear and concise. The owners were very accommodating.

My husband and I stayed for just one night for our anniversary and it was fabulous. The house was beautiful and the owners were wonderful. We will definitely stay again, we are even talking about making it a tradition for our anniversary. I have told all my friends and family about it and have recommended them stay.

The breakfast was amazing each morning. It was fresh, homemade food. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are available to help you find things to do, share about the history of the home, or anything else you need. Each evening there is a turn down service while you enjoy some wine and cheese. It was a very relaxing stay and we enjoyed all of it.

The Twelve Oaks is absolutely GORGEOUSl! Our hosts were very friendly and answered all our questions regarding this incredible home. We were invited to explore any of the three floors of this beautiful antebellum home. I was very impressed how extremely clean every thing was in the entire home and how we could make this home our very own for the time we were there. You can just feel the love & pride Nicole & John have for this beautiful home and they want to share this with their guests. YES!! I will absolutely revisit this incredible mansion and go back in time.........Sincerely, Lynn & Rick Fior

This grand 2nd floor suite with a king bed gives you the once in a lifetime experience of taking a shower in a very rare antique luxury shower from the late 1800's that was featured on Good Day Atlanta and in Deep South Magazine. These showers were installed in places like Buckingham Palace and one can be seen at Biltmore Estate. The Twelve Oaks is one of the very few places you can take a shower in one! Many guests say this is the best shower they've ever experienced! Soak next to the fire just like you would have almost two centuries ago in the in-room double slipper (2 person) claw foot tub. This grand suite features one of the best views of the house overlooking the massive columns on two sides of the house.
