The Oaks on the surface looks like a great place to have a wedding. I am sure the bride & family were very happy with their event. However the staff at this facility was horrible. The bartenders were down right rude. At the end of the evening the guests were pretty much pushed out the door. The food was mediocre... More

My son got married there and everything was wonderful except the weather. The Oaks is a rustic old house that has been added on to numerous times. The hallways go everywhere with a lot of turns. The room the wifey and I had was large with a sitting area and a water view. The breakfast buffet was ample and the... More

We got married at The Oaks back in '07 and recently returned to celebrate our anniversary. The mid-week getaway rate is terrific. The water views are spectacular particularly this time of year with the fall foliage. Since we were the only guests staying at the Inn, we were upgraded to the Cottage. The room upgrade was an unexpected surprise upon... More

Seriously, anyone who writes anything other than great comments about this place has issues. The Oaks is absolutely gorgeous. Immaculately kept, Beautiful views, Charming and Romantic Rooms, Quiet and Serene...an easy 5 min drive to the small town of St. Michael's with great restaurants and shops. We stayed only 2 days and took advantage of the mid-week special (which was... More

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

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
