I was involved in a wedding recently and unfortunetly had to stay at The Oaks. Everyone from the initial check in to the staff at the weddding were awful. I would never reccomend this establishment for a wedding venue nor a weekend getaway. I feel horrible for the bride and groom to have to endure such an awful staff on...

I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to write a review about The Oaks and their recent stay with us while attending a wedding. Knowing that every bride has the opportunity to select the venue for their wedding from literally thousands of different venues we feel very fortunate and honored to be selected as the wedding...

We attended an evening wedding here, and the entire evening was a complete success. Kudos to the staff for excellent service and food. The parents of the groom said the staff was extremely helpful and attentive. Of course, the perfect weather helped create a memorable evening. The grounds are beautiful, and the food was very good. Can't comment on the...

Recently attended a wedding at this venue. I was impressed by the beautiful grounds and it was truly an amazing setting for a wedding. Unfortunately, the facility did not make up for some major shortfalls in the management and staff. If you plan on having guests with kids at your wedding - don't have it here. Basic standard amenities such...

My husband and I stayed at The Oaks for a wedding, and while the wedding itself was lovely, and the reception was fun, we were not blown away by the accomodations. Our room had an "underground" feel, and only had two small windows with mostly blocked views of an outside dance floor area. We were pleased to find a cozy...

Our daughter's wedding was at The Oaks this weekend. This was a wonderful location for a wedding. It was really neat to have the entire location booked with family and friends. It made the weekend feel like it was our own personal resort. Our room was large, clean and had a great view of the water. When we were ready...

Katie & Kevin had a spectacular Fall wedding at The Oaks last year!

We were guests at a wedding where the entire Inn was taken by the wedding guests. As many of our family members are raising families, we chose to take one of the most expensive rooms, advertised to have a water view. Upon check in, we were shocked to discover that this water view from both the room and a lovely...

We got married here this past summer, both of our families and wedding party stayed at The Oaks for the weekend and had such an incredible stay.

We took advantage of the midweek savings package for 3 nights but upgraded to be in the cottage rather than a regular room. All was nice and clean. Spare fold-out sofa bed worked fine for our 16 yr old son. Service was friendly. Breakfasts were fresh and very tasty. We enjoyed the complimentary refreshments offered to us. Loved using the...

My husband and I spent two nights mid-week here for a getaway to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This is a quaint inn with a lot of interesting history. The service was fabulous.

Our son got married here. All the families stayed in the 14 rooms while most of the bridal party stayed in St Michael's. The rooms are comfortable and many are super sized. The reception was the hit as the food was spectacular. Due to rain right before the ceremony, we had to move to the covered dock which was ok,...
