Things To Do In Covington- Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast


real-12-oaks-extIf you’re looking for things to do in Covington, staying in a house that inspired Gone With The Wind should be at the top of your list.  Gone With the Wind, starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, is one of those pivotal and influential movies that everyone needs to see at some point in their lives.  One of the main houses in the movie is Ashley’s plantation, the Twelve Oaks.  This house was inspired by the real Twelve Oaks, found right here in Covington. 

This 10,000 square feet Antebellum home was first built in 1836 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.  After recent renovations and preservations, the home is open to the public as a bed and breakfast and event facility.  It is complete with modern conveniences such as WIFI, remote control fireplaces in every room, and all new heating and air conditioning. 

 Stay in one of the award winning suites, then wake up to a true Southern Breakfast made from local ingredients.  The staff does anything possible to make you feel like you are being spoiled rotten.  It is also a beautiful area for weddings or special events, and can accommodate up to 400 people. 

Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With The Wind, saw a picture of the home and sent it to the set designer for the movie as inspiration for Ashley’s home.   The elegant home and picturesque grounds have been used in various other shows and movies, including the Vampire Diaries.  Covington truly is the Hollywood of the South!

To reserve a room in this historic home and travel back in time, call 770-385-4005 or send an email to customersupport@thetwelveoaks.com

Treat yourself to a relaxing stay in the Twelve Oaks Bed and Breakfast, and leave your cares at the door because “after all… tomorrow is another day”.
