Until they work the tweaks out of a time machine, this is the best way to experience the old south. From lush landscaping, to the majestic pillared porch, and the charming staircase - this is a treat for all the senses. The hardwood floors, the openness of the second floor landing, the gorgeous chandeliers - just breathe in the magic...

I was very interested in this site due to its connection with Margaret Mitchell's comment that she saw this as a possible style for Twelve Oaks in the GWTW movie. Though the planting could use some spiffing up, the exterior is very nice. But I had just been to a very lavish property in Macon Georgia ($60 cheaper than 12...

My husband and I stayed at The Twelve Oaks for our anniversary last month. It was stunningly beautiful and we had an amazing time. There is not a detail of the beautiful home that has been overlooked. It's gorgeous, clean, and comfortable. The bathrooms with their large soaking tubs are relaxing wonderlands. The staff was sweet and so accommodating. We're...

We were looking for a place to get some R&R. We go it. The breakfast is great and the town is great. Also, if you are The Vampire Diaries fan the town is for you too. We had an enjoyable three days there and we we will be coming back. This was our second visit in the same year!

We had a wonderful time and didn't want to leave! We stayed in the Sweet Home Alabama Suite and absolutely loved it. We loved the fireplace, claw foot tub and amazingly comfortable king bed. The grounds of the inn were beautiful and impeccably maintained. We even got to take a quick dip in the pool in October. Breakfast was wonderful....
