My husband and I just spent three nights at the Oaks, and what a wonderful and relaxing time we had. Our room was spacious and well appointed, complete with balcony and jacuzzi! The grounds were beautiful, with adirondack chairs on the waterfront. The entire lawn was meticulously kept. We found the entire staff friendly and helpful. We asked for suggestions... More

Recently attended my friend's wedding here. The property was beautiful. The dinner food was very good, but the appetizers didn't appeal to me. The hotel and wait staff were extremely stringent. The bar didn't open until 4:45 on the button even though everyone had arrived and was milling for a good 30 mins prior, then they sent me to get... More

We were hosted to a tasting and an overnight stay for our daughters upcoming wedding. The food was excellent! We will have a difficult time deciding on apps, they were all delicious. The crab cakes were the best I have tasted. The staff was attentive, knowledgable and they made us feel welcome and special. We are so excited for the... More

My husband and I were married at The Oaks at the end of October, and I must say, it completely exceeded my expectations as a bride. My wedding day, weekend rather, was absolutely perfect. I can't tell you how many former brides and grooms gave me the pre-wedding advice of "enjoy your day, it will go by so fast." They... More

We stayed at The Oaks for a family wedding and everything was perfect!! We traveled with our 3 young children (which can be very difficult) and the staff was really terrific!!! They made everything simple - including a speedy check in and check out. They were accepting and tolerant of the young ones! The kids were free to explore the... More

The room was comfortable with great views of the water. The venue was a perfect place for a wedding. Tracy and all of the staff were friendly, courteous, helpful and... More

Our family and friends traveled from out of state to attend our son's wedding. I was impressed not only with the view, but with the event planner and staff. They were on top of everything and we did not have to ask or wait for anything. Our son and new daughter -in-law stayed in the cottage, which worked perfectly. Can't... More

I recently attended a wedding at the Oaks Inn. While the venue from the outside presents a gorgeous view, the inside will spoil your taste immediately with the first encounter with the staff. It seemed that collecting money instead of providing service meant more to the management of this establishment than providing service to those paying. With that said that... More

I recently stayed two nights for a family wedding with my 86 year old mother. Everything outside was lovely: the view of the river, the trees, garden, and dock. Unfortunately, everything inside was well below par and downright dangerous: the rooms were in need of remodeling with no grab rails or non-slip mats in either the bathtub or walk-in shower.... More

We recently stayed for a wedding that was being held here. While the location was nice the accommodations and staff were sub par. The rooms are in need of updating. They still have old TVs (flat screens are cheap, spend the $ and upgrade), the bathroom vanity was a cheap Home Depot unit that was peeling, the shower rod was... More
