All but 175± acres of Twin Oaks Plantation is located in Thomas County, Georgia, with this small balance in Grady County. With its roster of neighbors and its proximity to downtown Thomasville and Tallahassee, a Red Hills plantation address doesn’t get better than that of Twin Oaks. Twin Oaks is surrounded by Melrose, Sinkola, Beverly, Longpine, Winnstead, and Pebble Hill plantations.
Downtown Thomasville is just a five-minute ride from the gates of the plantation, and the most vibrant part of Tallahassee, Bradfordville, is only a 20-minute drive in the opposite direction down Highway 319. The Thomasville Municipal Airport is about 20 minutes from Twin Oaks and has a 6,004’ runway for private aviation. Tallahassee International Airport is 40 minutes from the plantation offering both private and public air transportation.
Located between Thomasville, Georgia and Tallahassee, Florida, the Red Hills Region is a 300,000-acre area known for its rolling hills, red clay soils, and diverse ecosystems. It had long been a winter destination for wealthy northerners who came for the mild weather and quail hunting. Sportsmen found that quail flourished in the region and the fast burst of a covey rise was an excitement beyond comparison. It motivated these early landowners to pull together the resources to study and detail the best land management practices for these upland ecosystems and due to their efforts, the Red Hills is revered today as one of the “Last Great Places” in rural America. What it offers for a wing-shooting enthusiast simply cannot be found elsewhere.
The cities anchoring this block of land offer great entertainment and cultural events. Thomasville is a charming southern town and was recently labeled the second best historic small town in the country by USA Today. Its original bricked roads have been uncovered along many of the downtown streets that take visitors to delightful dining options, boutiques, and shops featuring everything from high-end sporting attire to locally-made handcrafted goods. Tallahassee is Florida’s capital city and is home to three universities, museums, two large hospitals, and a variety of shopping and dining options.

Between November and March, the daily high temperatures average 68 degrees and low temperatures on average are 43 degrees.
