I was recently both a guest and part of a wedding party at The Oaks. While I don't think it is necessary to speak to the wedding party like they are children, I can at least understand the need to be stern with a large group of people when trying to orchestrate an event. It did seem special attention was... More

I'm a little puzzled by the negative reviews. We flew in from England on June 25th for a family wedding on June 27th. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room whilst compact was immaculate and the bed comfortable. The rehearsal dinner of a crab feast on the covered dock on the 26th was... More

I have stayed In hundreds of hotels and I have been to my count of weddings. I have never experienced a staff so incredibly rude. For you to comment and say that that customer that experienced a negative service was an "isolated incident" is absurd. I don't care if you have 70 reviews.You impacted about 100 people who will never... More

It has been two months since my daughter's marriage at the Oaks and we are still basking in the afterglow of the perfect wedding. It is hard to describe all the ways that make the Oaks the ideal setting. Less than an hour and a half from Baltimore and DC, the Inn and grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, just the right...

The Oaks is an exceptionally special and wonderful place. I was recently married there, and would recommend it as a wedding location or just a weekend getaway! First, the location is gorgeous - a beautiful, charming inn right on the water with several great options for ceremony sites. I actually started crying the first time we visited because I was...

Staff was rude, not accommodating, and inflexible. Horrible service for rehearsal and dinner. Luckily the people at the wedding were a great time.Its amazing how these people put on 40 weddings a year with the staff they are working with. The rooms were small and outdated and showers barely spewed water. They blamed everything on the laws and took zero... More

I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to write a review about their recent experience at The Oaks. Of course I am disappointed that it is not a more favorable review however every review is important and provides us with an opportunity for growth. I am of course saddened that this guest had a negative experience.... More

The venue was beautiful,the staff wonderful and the food was the best I have ever had at a wedding. Tracey was wonderful and made everything run smoothly. Our guests couldn't say enough nice things about the place. Everything took place exactly like we were told it would.

Sparkling clean- lifelong employees- owners are on premises to personally help you- idyllic setting- extremely professional- no stone unturned with personal service- St. Michaels is a best kept secret and the Oaks is their jewel in the crown.

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
