Four of us (two couples) just returned from a mid-week getaway at The Oaks and had a wonderful time. I was a bit apprehensive about booking because of some of the negative reviews but found everything to be just fine. Our room was clean and spacious and the bathroom, I believe, recently remodeled. Breakfast each morning was first rate with...

We just came home from having our daughters wedding at The Oaks. This is the 1st review I have ever taken the time to write. The experience that we had at The Oaks was first class. Tracey is a gem. At every important moment she was there to make sure everything went smoothly. The ceremony was outside, the temp was...

We had friends who had a wedding here and it was great. The wedding went off without a hitch and it was very clear that the planner(s) had paid super close attention to detail. Easily a beautiful and responsible place to have a wedding with a fantastic staff. However sleeping there was a bit of an adventure. There was what...

I was a part of a wedding and stayed at The Oaks in October, 2011. Upon check in I noticed that the room was old and somewhat dirty (we wore flip slops when we showered) - however so as not to cause problems or a headache for the bride I did not mention my concerns. Over a month AFTER our...

Stayed at the inn for a wedding and was very happy with service, room, location, etc! The staff made an effort to treat the wedding guests very personally all weekend. Unfortunately, because of bridal party commitments, I was not able to partake in all of the on-property amenities like biking or putting so cannot speak to those. The rooms were...

We found this as an alternative to the Perry Inn, and what a find! It is outside St Michaels, but I don't think that's a bad thing. We took advantage of the mid-week package & I have to say that it's certainly worth it - probably helped by the fact we were upgraded to the cottage because we were the...

My husband and I were traveling up the DelMarVa Peninsula on our way to Philadephia. We were late and arrived after hours very tired. It was such a relief and so wonderful to find our beautiful room beyond all expectations. It was a fireplace suite with a jacuzzi and balcony. We ordered a pizza delivered and just vegged out. Everything...

I travelled to The Oaks for a conference and found it to be extremely lovely. I travel quite often for my work and am used to staying at large chain hotels. This was a wonderful change from the norm. The staff was attentive and service oriented. Breakfast each morning was a much welcomed surprise. We were served made to order...

I was married here this past year and it was wonderful! The food, the service and the location were spectacular. The wedding coordinator, Nicole, was responsive and extremely helpful. It was a dream way to start my new life with my husband and we look forward to returning for many anniversary stays in the future!!

Last weekend, my daughter and son-in-law held their wedding reception at The Oaks. Thanks to their superb staff, things were close to perfect.
