The design style at Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast harkens back to an older time. This antebellum home was originally constructed in 1836 and the owners, Nicole Greer and John Munn, tried to stay as authentic and original to this Southern style while restoring the old home into a luxurious and comfortable place for guests. The hotel’s white façade features large columns and rocking chairs on the porch welcoming you to sit a spell. You’ll find a gorgeous staircase upon your entrance and illuminating glass chandeliers — unscathed from years of decay — in the lobby with some that match almost perfectly in the dining and living rooms, which not only show off the hotel’s gorgeous hardwood floors, but also the dedication to preserving the sense of an old Southern home. Antique furniture mixes with modern amenities (such as the TVs and iPod docks) in the guest rooms with each having distinct features and décor — from a Civil War-themed room with generals’ portraits on the wall and a North versus South chess set to a mahogany-covered study converted into The Salvatore Brother’s Study guest room (with accompanying tub, shower and bathroom tile that were original to the house).
