Sit by your fireplace in your Turkish robe and drink a glass of wine. Read a book on one of the many porches.

Take out one of our complimentary bicycles to explore the streets filled with antebellum mansions and homes. Only 30 minutes to downtown Atlanta. Come to Twelve Oaks and be inspired!
This room is on the first floor and has a beautiful view of the massive columns on two sides of the house. It features an antique queen size tester canopy bed. The lavish white marble bathroom has a large, two-person spa rain shower with three separate rain heads. This room has one of the largest fireplaces complete with a remote control. It also has a 55" LED tv.
This fabulously large and elegant room tucked away on the 3rd floor features a gorgeous replica of an antique copper bateau tub; soak in the history as you look out the original French-style leaded glass windows or take in the original brick wall. Warm up by your fireplace complete with remote so you can adjust the fire from the gorgeous hand-carved antique king bed. This room has an enormous carrara marble shower with two rain heads and a spa-like bench with hand shower for relaxing and staying a while. This is luxury at its finest.
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.
Many people don’t realize that Sweet Home Alabama was filmed partly in Covington, which is also known as Hollywood of the South. Stay in this 3rd floor suite to experience southern hospitality at its finest with two beautiful twin beds, original bead board ceilings, and an original fireplace updated with gas coals and a convenient remote. You may want to soak away the day in the gorgeous double slipper claw foot tub with hand shower and a beautiful view out the original French windows!
This charming room on the 2nd floor features beautiful antique French doors leading to your own private enclosed porch perfect for reading a great book! The bathroom has an antique claw foot tub with standing shower, brand new plumbing fixtures and the original tile floor, which we were able to uncover during the renovation. This room has a gorgeous original fireplace that has been converted to gas and comes with a remote for the ultimate in historic beauty with modern convenience. The name of this room pays homage to the role Twelve Oaks played as a set for many episodes of the hit television series, “In the Heat of the Night”.
This guest room conveniently located on the first floor is the study and has gorgeous mahogany woodwork throughout and an original fireplace that has been converted to gas complete with a remote. Step back in time as the bath here has the original tile and original tub and standing shower. Of course, the house was built in 1836, but this is likely one of the first baths added to the house in the late 1800s and is fabulous!
This gorgeous 3rd floor room has an enormous spa bathroom with a jetted pedestal tub. Soak your cares away with chromo-therapy and aromatherapy or take a shower in the large 2-person shower. The architecture in this room is beautiful as well from the barrel ceiling foyer entrance to the original bead board ceiling and gorgeous French windows. This room is perfect for romance with its queen size bed and original fireplace that has been updated to gas and includes the modern convenience of a remote. .

My wife and I stayed in the Breakfast at Tiffany's room on the top floor just for one night on our way to the airport after our wedding, and it was exquisite! Unfortunately, we got in late and were too tired to get up for breakfast (which I hear is pretty good), but the room and the Inn as a whole was perfect! We felt like we were staying in a contemporary version of one of those mansions you see in movies/TV show set in the early 1900s. The bed was very comfortable, the decor was picturesque, and the grounds were beautiful. We did take advantage of the Keurig in the lobby of the 3rd floor on our way out. We hope to come back sometime when we have more time to enjoy this beautiful place!

We live in the Atlanta area and have driven by Twelve Oaks many times. This time we made time to stay. And we are so glad we did! The home is just beautiful. Everyone was pleasant, those working and guests alike. Friends' son had narrowed their wedding site to two locations. Our outstanding experience broke the tie!

Nichole and John were "outstanding" hosts who added to our Scarlett & Rhett fantasy getaway. They made our 45th anniversary even more memorable. Thank you! Jim and Toni Dykes

Spent 2 nights at 12 Oaks this month (Sept) and had an amazing time, the house is beautiful, the owners and staff are incredibly friendly and you are in walking distance to the town square, will definitely stay here on my next trip to Covington.

We had a great time. The rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. Each room had its own characteristics. We had an issue with the television when we arrived and John was right there to correct the problem. We met some find folks from Florida and Wisconsin. The small town atmosphere and eating establishments were a great treat. At breakfast the next morning we could smell the pancakes and we walked downstairs. The scrambled eggs were a great treat, like none others we had ever had.

I had planned a surprise vacation for my wife's birthday that started with a stay here at Twelve Oaks. It was gorgeous, and only slightly hard to find (I missed the turn twice) but once parked, it was a gorgeous home. Large, spacious rooms and very clean. My wife and i were one of three couples staying the night, but the other rooms were open to look in, so we snooped around a bit. Every room looked tastefully decorated and spacious. We stayed in the In the Heat of the Night Suite which has a HUGE TV (no cable, but DVD player) which was nice (but unused by us). It has a nice covered veranda. The only drawback to this particular room is that the home has spotlights on it overnight which feature it's stunning architecture...well, one of those spotlights aims right into one of the windows. Some black out drapes would be great. I think overall that might be my only comment, that the room was very bright. The chandelier outside the room is gorgeous, but on all night so this sweet is not for those who are light sensitive sleepers! The breakfast was outstanding though. And when I mentioned i'm not much of a biscuits and gravy kind of guy, John was nice enough to whip up some of the finest eggs I've tasted. What a great treat and a great start to our vacation!!! Thank you, we will be back!!! And bring your swimsuits, the pool looks FANTASTIC! Andrew C.
Thank you so much for staying with us and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have HD cable in each room as well as blueray DVD players. After reading your review, it has occurred to me that maybe we should have instructions for the cable and TV. The spotlights on the house was unfortunately moved some when we had to take a large tree out. Thank you for the feedback; we will get our electrician to move it and to put it on a timer so that it goes off at night. I'm glad you enjoyed breakfast! We hope you'll come back and visit and bring your swimsuit so you can try out the pool! All the best, Nicole
