The 5 Twelve B&B @ 512 Van Buren
First and foremost, the Oliver Britt House is no more. And it hasn’t been knocked down for more condos (thank goodness).. It simply changed names.
The new name is ‘The 5 Twelve’, as in 512 Van Buren Ave. In addition to the name, the place has undergone an impressive renovation. One we thought we’d share with everyone, as we particularly like this inn, due to it’s amazingly close location to the Square(a few blocks), as well as the University.
High level, the inn offers 6 rooms, features 12 ft ceilings, full breakfast, an amazing (new) brick patio, a wraparound porch, and one immensely hospitable Innkeeper, Ilene.
The atmosphere and feel of the new inn is, quite honestly, unlike anything Oxford has had before – and that’s a good thing. The feel, in my opinion, is a mix between old South and the W hotel. Clean lines and polished rooms inside a great historical home (I need to do an Oxford Time Machine on this place, really).
