What a memorable family get-together we had last weekend at The Oaks! We have always wanted to experience a Murder Mystery and The Oaks was the perfect setting for this event. We arrived Friday early evening and Ken checked us into our rooms - the ballroom, the maid's quarters and Olivia's room. All were charmingly decorated and for a building... More

Spouse picked this place as a surprise gift. When we arrived, the welcome by the owner was not accomadated with a smile or any warmth. Breakfast was very good and the wife was functionally polite. Aloof couple...not sure why running a B & B where you have to interact with people. We wanted a getaway so not looking for a... More

It's been awhile since we stayed, but I remember it fondly. We decided to do a little sightseeing on our way home and meandered into Petersburg. When it came to looking for a place for the night, we decided to look for a B&B. The Oaks had one room left for the night and we headed over to find it.... More

Authentic Victorian era home. Bed was great room was fine and hosts were accomidating. If you are a bed and breakfast "virgin" this might not be the best way of starting. But the fact that we couldn't agree on a place to eat resulted in Ken whipping up a delicous dinner for us is why we stay in a B&B.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Oaks just recently and found the accomodations and service excellent. Some others have commented on the condition of the building and rooms, lets remember this mansion is well over 150 yrs old and time takes it's toll on everything, The rooms are clean, the beds very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Ken... More

I was referred to "The Oaks" from inn keeper at the Branson house, which was booked. I'm really grateful. My family, 11 year old included, LOVED THIS PLACE!! prior to my visit, the inn keeper called to confirm everything, including my late arrival, which ended up being really late & dark. He was available when I called to direct me... More

The Oaks hosted my wedding reception. It was small (only 16 people) and intimate. I had the owner's take care of the dinner and my husband & I stayed in the Edward Laning suite. Mainly because the guests would be in and out of our room and I got ready for the wedding there. The house is great. I wouldn't... More

OK, this B&B is terribly run down. There hasn't been anyone weeding this landscape for at least a year. Our room wasn't ready upon arrival and we did arrive rather late. I believe the owners are concentrating on their restaurant in town and letting this property go. It really is pathetic to see the place.

After viewing the web site of the Oaks I thought the rooms would be amazing. However upon arrival I was somewhat disappointed in the room quality. We stayed in the Ballroom. It was very spacious however the bathroom was very basic & there was a section of wall that was crumbling & covered by a screen. The sheets on the... More
